Dayton is one of the most delightful cities in the Midwest, with diverse communities, delicious eateries, and stunning views. That’s why it comes as no surprise that the average price to rent an office in Dayton is about $16 per sq.ft. That amounts to $2,400 for a small, 150 sq.ft. office! Adding in a receptionist’s office, which average around 40 sq.ft., can take up more space than necessary, shoveling more money towards rent and less money towards your business.
Virtual receptionists at Smith.ai always work remotely from a quiet home office, saving you office space and putting money right back into your pocket. Learn more about the differences between a full-time receptionist vs. a virtual receptionist.
Popular cities like Dayton often demand a higher wage for workers than the national average. Salaries for traditional in-house receptionists in Dayton can cost anywhere from $28,000 to $44,000 annually. When you factor in costs for direct benefits, such as healthcare and 401K’s, and side benefits, such as commuter reimbursements and paid holidays, a full-time, in-house receptionist can cut deep into your budget.
The cost for a full-time, 24/7 receptionist at Smith.ai, however, starts at as little as $255/month, saving you up to $40,000/year on salary alone! Smith.ai adjusts to fit your business needs, not the other way around. Review Smith.ai’s flexible monthly plans and pricing.

Unfortunately, in-house receptionists can only do so much. Most receptionists multitask, balancing their call answering responsibilities with other receptionist duties, like mail distribution or file organization. Even with multiple receptionists, phone calls can and will be missed when they call in sick, need time off, or are preoccupied with other projects. As much as 25% of calls come in after-hours and on weekends, so even beyond these regular interruptions to call answering, there are real numbers that affect your business.
Barring office restocks and coffee runs, virtual receptionists can do everything an in-house receptionist can, and then some.
