Are you one of those businesses with your caller ID blocked?
One of my pet peeve’s – is businesses that block their caller ID or worst still, who do not reply to “contact us” on their web sites.
- Caller ID “blocked”? – for me, it says that you have something to hide or be ashamed of. You want to hide behind your anonymity.
- Answer web site enquires? – If you do not want to enter a dialogue with your clients then do not put “contact us” on your web site. If you do then answer them in a timely manner.
For tradesmen who want to grow businesses here are my tips:
1: Have a web site – you will stand out
2: Respond to those of us who are busy and like to use email or cell phones
3: Remove the blocked ID from your PABX or telco.
