Do you want to outsource to a Virtual Reception team?

How to outsource to a Virtual Reception team

The first 5 steps to take for a successful partnership

Any business who deals with booking in clients will know how distracting constant phone calls can be.

But they’re vital too.

You don’t want to ignore your ringing phone as it may be a client wanting to book an appointment, alter an appointment, or ask you a question. You want your clients to feel important.

What we’ve found is that many sole traders don’t want to employ a full-time receptionist as their phone calls don’t warrant a full-time wage.

In this online world, the key to success is outsourcing the parts of your business that zap your time and energy. Like phone calls!

And don’t worry. Your clients won’t even know that you’re using a virtual reception service. It’s easy to get started and keep your clients happy. Here’s how.

Phone answering and administration for Chiropractors

Do you need some admin help for your Chiropractic business?

Outsource your paperwork and reception to a virtual team

Running your own Chiropractic business can be tiring, especially if you’re not working within a practice group and managing it all by yourself.

While you’re consulting with a patient, you risk missing phone calls and booking in patients to fill your books. And when you do have a full day booked, you fall behind on billing your patients, updating records and sending letters back to GPs and the like.

If you’re running your business from home, or even if you’ve rented an office, you may find it hard to justify having a full-time receptionist/administration assistant. You don’t have the office space, and you don’t want all the hassles that come with having an employee on your books.

But as you’d know, your patients need attention. They want their phone calls and questions answered, and they want to feel like they’re important to you. It’s the human touch you need for your Chiropractic business.

And that’s where having a virtual team can help you.

How Psychologists use outsourcing for their business

And why outsourcing is perfect for soloist practitioners

If you’re running a soloist psychology practice and acting as receptionist, admin and therapist all in one, what impression are you giving your patients?

They may think a) you’re not busy enough so you can do it all yourself, or b) you won’t be concentrating in your session as you’ll be distracted by phones or thinking about all the things you have to do.

To give yourself a professional edge, and to allow you to focus purely on your patients, you should consider outsourcing.

Here are our top 9 reasons why you should outsource your reception

The word ‘outsourcing’ is no longer a strange word to business owners.

It’s an online world, and most of us know how to outsource parts of our business to give ourselves more free time.

But the thing a lot of business owners struggle with is what they should outsource. And once they’ve decided this part, there’s always that internal voice that asks, ‘Is it worth outsourcing or do I keep doing it myself’?

My two-cents – I love outsourcing and see huge value in it. If I hadn’t tried outsourcing, I wouldn’t be able to help my clients through the process. And if your service provider is decent, they’ll be able to guide you too.

As I offer reception services, I thought I’d share with you my top 9 reasons while you should outsource this part of your business. This comes from the benefits my clients have found over the years.
