Maintain Good Lines of Communication
A successful business person needs to be easy to reach. However, it is not necessary that you must immediately answer your cell phone regardless of your location and situation. Such action can be considered rude and inconsiderate. You should ensure that your business contact information can be easily found by potential customers or clients.
On those occasions where you are unable or unwilling to answer your phone, have a responsible person available to answer it. It is also acceptable to route incoming calls directly to voice mail. To maintain a professional image, keep your voice message concise and straightforward. And of course you will be sure to check it often!
What you know does not make a difference – it is really a matter of what you do with what you know. Be persistent. There is so much more you can and should do to promote your business.
