24/7, After Hours, or Whenever You Need Us
Need licensed agents in the USA to answer new and existing client phone calls 24/7, after hours or when you're busy? Insure Response can answer the calls you've been missing like an in-house CSR!
Why Do I Need A Call Answering Service When I Have Voicemail?
Good Question. Here's why. In a recent market study, we found that 86% of calls that came into TrustedChoice.com and went to voicemail ended in a hang-up. To compound that staggering statistic, in a recent after hours (7pm-9pm) outbound call campaign to over 400 indepedent agencies, 94% of those calls went to voicemail or were not answered at all.
94% of after hours calls went to voicemail or were not answered at all
86% of calls that go to voicemail are hang-ups
Bottom Line: Customers expect a human to answer. If they get voicemail, they hang up and your agency misses out on a new sale or actively servicing an existing client.
Agencies Need a Human Answering EVERY Phone Call
