Having receptionists answer her phones and staff her live website chat let her focus on her core work while giving clients the appearance of a larger organization. That helped her credibility. She anticipated the time savings, but not that “friendly people answering the phones welcomed my clients and made them feel better when they were frustrated.” That was especially important during a major crisis.
