If 50K Professional Lawn Services LLC is located in Austin, Texas, then why is our number not a local number?
The truth of our story may surprise you, as it involves overcoming challenges, embracing emotions, and reflecting on our journey to better serve our clients. Our business began with a simple 512 number displayed on our Craigslist ad. Yes, we were once one of those guys spamming "We mow your lawn for $20" on Craigslist. But see, as we ventured out into the field, mowing lawns with unwavering focus and dedication, we encountered a problem: the persistent hum of our equipment drowned out the sound of incoming calls.
We experienced frustration and disappointment, knowing that each missed call represented a potential client we couldn't connect with. Desperate to find a solution, we considered adding another phone number to our Craigslist ad. We believed that when one of us was mowing, the other could be trimming, and at least one of us would be available to answer the phone. So, we added a second number, unaware of the complications it would bring.
What we didn't realize was that integrating a parallel phone system would double our efforts and amplify our challenges. This decision led to confusion becoming a regular occurrence as we grappled with managing two phones, two sets of call logs, and twice as many text messages for requests, quotes, and feedback. Lacking a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, we found ourselves relying solely on an Excel spreadsheet to manually enter and track all our communications.
The pressure mounted, and we knew we needed a better solution. It only took one long, exhausting day and one weary landscaper for the cracks to begin to show. And that's when the idea of the 844 number emerged. Our 844 number would create a call blast to all our local phone numbers, connecting 2 phones (at the time 2, we have more than a dozen lines now and counting...) in a seamless, synchronized system. It was a really easy solution that offered a glimmer of hope to a sophisticated problem.
As we implemented the 844 number, we began to see the positive impact it had on our business. No longer were we fumbling through multiple devices and fragmented communication; instead, we now had a single point of contact to find call log and centralized text messages to manage. It was a breath of fresh air that simplified our lives and allowed us to focus on what truly mattered - our clients.
While an 844 number may now be synonymous with robocalls and scams, our decision to adopt it stemmed from a genuine desire to solve a real-world problem and improve our services. As we read our online reviews, we experience a mix of emotions - from pride in our achievements to the sting of criticism. It can be both flattering and very hard to read. But we continue to reflect, learn, and grow, striving each day to provide the best possible service to you, our valued clients. Our journey has been filled with emotions, reflection, and challenges, but at its heart, it remains a story of dedication, resilience, and innovation. We are the change we wish to see in the world.
