Phone calls are a critical way consumers contact their service provider. Here are three ways to stand out from the competition: 

Answer the Phone and/or Follow Up Quickly

For this reason, you need to make sure you have processes in place to not only track those calls but be able to quickly respond and get that service appointment booked. Talk to your team and make sure everyone is on the same page regarding call handling.

Marchex empowers marketers to decode call outcomes across multi-location stores, track team interactions, and harness data for transformative results to ensure your teams are living up to your brand promise.
