TURN YOUR PHONE SYSTEM INTO A TALK TRIGGER
A Talk Trigger is something that gets your clients talking about your business.
Many successful companies do one small thing that gets customers talking about them. For example, Doubletree Hotels hand out warm chocolate chip cookies at check-in. The Magic Castle hotel in Los Angeles has a Popsicle Hotline phone by the pool. Talk Triggers spur word of mouth and get people talking about your business. Even the carpet pattern used in the Portland airport has become a talk trigger. You can Google all of these if you don't believe me. You should also check out the book Talk Triggers by Daniel Lemin and Jay Baer. They explain it pretty well.
I think your phone system should be a talk trigger. When you call most businesses today, you are greeted the same way. How many times have you heard, "Listen carefully, our menu options have changed..." Stand out from the crowd with a unique, customized, entertaining, and fun phone system voice. Your customers should know they've called you, right away, because your phone system is unique and different.

Communicate with a friendly, conversational voice
(by hiring me, of course!)
