Outstanding article! It's remarkably easy to overlook the difficulties customers have with dealing with us until we lose them as a customer. A valuable exercise is use a trusted friend to pose as a prospect. Have them call your firm and see how their call was handled (answered by informed human or automated attendant). Then, inquire about a possible job. What was the response? Were enough questions asked by your staff to understand the project? How did they respond? How long did it take? Then call back with further questions. What was your staff's response? How easy was it to reach them?
