What is an eReceptionist?
An ereceptionist, or virtual receptionist as they are interchangeably called, are remote receptionists who complete all the functions of a traditional receptionist but out of house. They are contracted by companies and clients on an as needed basis, much like any freelancer. Ereceptionists make use of digital technology and processes to provide customer service, call handling, call forwarding to in house employees, and other support functions. Outsourcing to an ereceptionist can cost considerably less than hiring an in house receptionist, while providing the same functionality and support to smaller and scaling businesses. Thus freeing up time from support tasks so the client and business can concentrate on growth.
What is a secretarial fee?
How much should you charge as an ereceptionist? A full-time salaried receptionist can expect to earn on average between £19,000 to £22,000 per annum. However, this represents just an average and can vary greatly by region and company. As an ereceptionist you may expect to earn anything from £8 an hour up to £20 depending on your level of experience, the client and other factors. But don’t forget to take into account other costs when calculating your day/hourly rate. There are also tax, admin, marketing and other costs to take into consideration. And Dinghy’s low-cost flexible insurance for ereceptionists is perfect to keep you covered while you work and save you money when you are not.
