Are you self-employed? Do you have a very small workforce? Do you find yourself wishing you had someone to help keep you from falling behind, or even get ahead of upcoming projects?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could benefit from a virtual receptionist. What is a virtual receptionist? The receptionist who works for you, without really working for you. Or to be more specific, someone who helps you out but isn’t your employee.
Virtual receptionists usually work remotely, and can provide a variety of services such as admin duties, planning and organization, transcription and scheduling; basically all of the duties of a dedicated receptionist. There are virtual receptionist service agencies that provide the assistance and nothing else, or you can get a virtual receptionist through a virtual office lender.
Virtual office receptionists are employees of the office, and therefore are vetted, hired and paid by the office proprietor. They assume all of the risk, while you reap all the benefits.
And if you choose a virtual receptionist through a virtual office, you can also take advantage of everything else the virtual office has to offer. Virtual offices have a variety of services, from just an address to put on your business card, to dedicated private workspace and meeting rooms.
If you find yourself stretched too thin or struggling to keep up, a virtual receptionist could be just the solution you need.
