Just as important is remembering the little details. Decorating your store with holiday cheer is a great way to make both customers and employees happy. Another important detail to remember is to program your business phone system in Detroit, MI for the holidays.
Remembering the small things
Ever call a business and it has the same stale greeting from 15 years ago? Chances are, that business owner either does not care about the little details that make a business stand out, or they are uncertain how to reprogram their phone system. Little details such as your phone’s automated greeting system offer prospective clients or other businesses a first impression of the quality of your business. Having a high quality and engaging greeting on your business phone system in Detroit, MI speaks to the credibility of your business, its professionalism and your dedication to excellent service. If you have not worried about this aspect of your business in the past, then now is the perfect time to start caring.
The holidays are a festive time of the year than anyone can enjoy, whether for religious observance or for the pleasure of a little time off work to spend with family and friends. Just as you might greet a customer walking in the front door of your business with a cheerful “happy holidays,” so too should your business phone system in Detroit, MI. Not only will this provide a cheerful and timely greeting to your caller, it also demonstrates the quality of your business since you took the time to custom record a message for the season.
Crafting an appropriate greeting
Programming a custom holiday greeting message on your business phone system should only take a few minutes out of your day. Consider writing out a small message to read aloud, rehearse it a few times, and then go ahead and record. If you have any problems recording, you should call your phone system provider to provide assistance. After recording, remember to test the message a few times to ensure it sounds the way you intended. Remember to emphasize the holiday season in general, rather than a specific holiday. You can even add in cheerful holiday music as a waiting signal. Most importantly, if you have holiday promotions, make sure to mention these during your recorded message.
In summary, offer a nice holiday greeting and remind the caller why your business is worth shopping with this holiday season. Just as a side note, remember to change the recorded message once the holiday season is over. Hopefully these tips will help your business have a wonderful holiday season, and give your callers something to smile about.
