What is Telephone Tuesday?

Peyton Duplechien • 02 Sep 2019 • 2 min read

Here we are celebrating Labor Day, and already there’s another holiday to prepare for tomorrow! A lesser one, but here at VoiceNation, we love all things telephone, so we are celebrating! Now what exactly is this holiday? It’s not so much a holiday as it is a trend that has been noticed over the years.
An actual, measurable spike in telephone calls occurs after businesses and organizations open after the long weekend. It’s partly due to the halt in operations over Labor Day weekend. Also, many schools open after Labor Day weekend. Another possible reason for the trend is now that it’s September, the holiday season is quickly approaching.
All in all, people really tackle their to-do lists after the long weekend. Studies have shown that inbound calls increase between 30 and 50 percent on Telephone Tuesday. Wow! We love call volume here at VoiceNation because we provide the perfect solution for businesses experiencing lots of calls!

After hours answering service

You’re in the office after a long weekend and your voicemail is packed since you’ve been closed for three days. Pretty overwhelming, right? It will probably take you an hour to listen to those messages and then sort through who to call back first. Well at VoiceNation, we offer after hours answering services. And that includes holidays! So instead of facing a very full voicemail, you could have had our live virtual receptionists answering your calls, taking messages and sending them to you using our amazing technology and mobile app – you could quickly sort and filter through those messages and prioritize who to call back. We even tag robocalls and qualify leads, so you don’t need to waste your time combing through call clutter.
