“Now that I do not have to stop what I am doing while working on client work, I am able to be more creative and finish things in a timely manner which is important when I am billing time to a client.” – Tara Pupilli, Director of Client Services at Raleighwood Media Group & Raleighwood Event Group
We love getting feedback like this from our clients. Tara works at a full-service marketing firm in Raleigh, NC, and has seen a real change in her ability to keep the “creative juices” flowing when she is working and does not have to stop to answer the incoming phone calls. If your marketing agency does not have an answering service it may be time to look into one.
Benefits of an Answering Service for Marketing Firms
For any industry, when your employees are deep in thought and on a roll, any distraction can be detrimental. We can help take some of the distractions away. Instead of spending time on the regular interruptions caused by answering calls, Catalyst Communications will field these calls for you. This way, only things that are time-sensitive or deemed important by you during our initial conversations, will be passed along at that exact moment. Using a telephone answering service for your business can not only help increase the efficiency of your employees, but it can also increase their creativity.
When your employees are able to focus on the task at hand, they will have more time to be creative. Taking away the time they are spending on the phone can open up time that can be used for brainstorming exercises, workshops, and more. In addition to getting rid of distractions, here are a few other ways to encourage creative thinking.
Tips to Encourage Creative Thinking
- Stress the importance of creativity for your business
- Make time for new ideas (this can replace the time that was being spent on fielding phone calls)
- Solicit creative suggestions
- Give your team time to focus
- Train your staff in innovation techniques
- Be supportive
- Tolerate mistakes
- Reward creativity
- Challenge the way staff work
