January has been the month of answering phones! Not my phone, but the phones of businesses throughout the UK, that are looking to improve their first point of contact with customers.
IVR and answerphone messages have been my main focus since the New Year. It’s a good job that I really enjoy making these audio files for various different phone systems. What I really enjoy is the varied companies that contact me. This month alone I’ve worked with a website design company and a Westend theatre company.
