    Hi Everyone,
    I hope someone can now help me as I am in a good situation, although don’t really know which path to go down. Our company is about to get some major national coverage in a newspaper for a couple of products new to market….we have already been told that the reviews are great. The newspaper is asking for a phone number for stockists although my partner and I really only use mobile phones as we are out and about all the time and we will not be in our new office for at least another 6 weeks. It would be better to publish a landline. Can anyone suggest a VA or company to use and can we just hire for a couple of weeks during the “hot” period….is it expensive?
    Would appreciate any help / sugguestions and quickly.

    Thanks
    Brooke

    Hi Brooke,

    I’d suggest getting in contact with Kylie Short, from Tilda Virtual Services.

    She offers a whole range of virtual assistant services that you may find worthwhile – Perhaps start with her phone answering and then when business explodes because of the fantastic exposure you are receiving you can scale up.

    Her website is http://www.tildavirtual.com.au

    Why not get a 1300 number.

    You can divert it to your mobile (but call rates can be expensive). In 6 weeks time, you can then change it to your landline.

    We use TelcoWorx who have a cheap setup (but call rates are pricey) – service is so-so…

    Cheers, Paul.

    Hi Brooke,

    Another idea is you could try a SkypeIn line and forward it to your mobile phones. I haven’t used it myself so I can’t say if it works well or not.

    Cheers

    Hi Brooke,

    If you don’t want to go the way of a Virtual Receptionist I recommend getting a 1300 number and pointing it to your mobile. The company I use for all three of my 1300 numbers is Alltel at http://www.alltel.com.au/

    This way you don’t have to change your phone number when you do move into your office.
