Overview

Having had hands on experience setting up and managing her husband's plumbing business for 4 years, the business owner knows exactly how a Trademan's mind ticks!

It is extremely difficult trying to do a days work when your mobile is constantly ringing.  Sometimes, you may be lucky if you can hear it amid the drilling or hammering!  You may have put your mobile phone down somewhere or left it in the van!  You are losing business every time your phone is not answered.

Have you every wondered how much work you are losing by allowing your mobile to go to voicemail?  If you were ringing a customer, what would your impression be if the phone ALWAYS went to voicemail.  Do you like leaving a message and do you think they deserve the business if they don't answer their phone?  If I needed a plumber or electrician and their phone went to voicemail, I wouldn't leave a message, I would immediately phone a competitor.

Sometimes, it is not possible to answer your phone due to health and safety concerns.  You don't want to leave dangerous tools lying around in someone's home while you deal with phone calls - especially if the customer has young children.

If you calculate the cost of advertising, you could actually save money by hiring a Virtual Tradesman Assistant.  Your advertising costs may be going down the drain (Plumbers excuse the pun!) as you are too busy or health and safety conscious to answer your phone.

Once the hard days toil is done, you then have to visit prospective client's to estimate for work and then prepare these estimates once you return home.  The days are long and tiring.  And when do you have time to do your book-keeping, pay your bills and chase unpaid accounts?
