From improving customer service to simplifying operations, outsourcing has the power to transform your business.
Outsourcing has the potential to transform a business and if done correctly, it’s your key to success. Until recently, outsourcing felt like it was only geared towards big business. However, small businesses are now perfectly positioned to take advantage of new technology and tools in every aspect of business; from capturing leads, website live chat, marketing, to bookkeeping. When outsourcing is done correctly, it enables owners and managers to save time which they can devote to the goals that really matter, like growing your business.
In this short guide, you’ll learn 3 of the best things every business should and can outsource in 2021.
Every business should make it easy for customers to ask for help when they need it. Nothing is more frustrating than hard to find contact details, long waiting times or no response from online webchats. According to research by Salesforce, 62% of customers say they share their bad experiences with others. This powerful statistic proves how important it is to get it right.
While most businesses won’t want to outsource all their customer service, there are tools and services that can help improve customer satisfaction and increase response times.
- Website Live Chat
Outsourcing your website live chat means your web visitors receive a quick response and solution to their problems proactively. According to Face For Business Ltd, 82% of customers say they experienced an increase in conversions by having a managed live chat service. Outsourcing your live chat means your visitors will get a quick response every time.
- Inbound Calls
Many people will always skip the “contact us” form or live chat and go straight for the phone. A phone call is a good way to start building a relationship but it’s time consuming. Let’s face it, how many calls do we receive that are nuisance calls? It’s either a salesperson ringing to save you thousands on your energy bills or a recruitment agency claiming to have the perfect candidate for only 25% fees. Some calls are extremely valuable but how many are just interruptions to your day?
Outsourcing your calls to the right telephone answering service will enable you to free up time, focus on the most important calls, block the nuisance ones, and make sure your callers receive a fast response and great service.
- Diary Management & Appointment Bookings
Taking bookings, orders and reservations is time consuming and can be easily outsourced giving you the time to focus on other areas of your business. Successful diary management is fundamental to the smooth running of a business. The right partner can streamline your booking process, eliminate inefficiencies, and save you time and money.
