When you decide to offer call support using a VoIP business phone system at your company, one of the trickiest aspects is to forecast the incoming flow of calls and make it manageable. Having a phone number in your website leaves pretty much the door open for anyone to reach out. And then all it comes to the big question: what percentage of those calls actually brought any value to your business? 🤯

💸 Valuable calls vs 🙄 not valuable calls.

A valuable call can be different for each business, for some it can be a VIP customer subscribed to an annual plan and for others a ready-to-buy prospect that is at the end of the digital journey. In either case, this customer or prospect is already identified by you and holds a very important position on your strategy, you want them to be the closest to you, and start building a real relationship by being reachable at any time.

This is when the brilliant idea to put a phone number on your website: a no-brainer. After a while, you will see the inflow of calls to keep growing and become more complex, you will receive calls of hot leads, clients, curious people, and basically anybody, because all hold the same 'weight' on your inbound call flow. Your support team will start feeling overwhelmed, perhaps discouraged and flooded by many kinds of requests, some valuable and some others really useless for your business and value proposition. At the end your support will become too complex and have inefficiencies.

Then, perhaps you would ask yourself the following questions:

  • How can I deliver value and be closer only to my high-value customers?
  • How can I filter my inbound call flow and make it efficient with current internet business phone systems?
  • How can my phone support  be aligned to my business objectives?

Long-answer, short: be smart and switch to a smart support 🤓
