Why is telephone etiquette so important?

With so much attention being placed on online communication, whether it’s via email and social media, it seems that conversing with your actual voice is a lost art. However, answering the telephone is still a big part of the experience for many businesses.

Talking with someone effectively on the phone truly is an art form. It’s so much different from both talking to people online and in person. Online, you have the time to really devise a great answer and think about what you are going to speak about before you press  “enter.”

And when you are talking to someone in the flesh, you can use your facial expressions and body language to better translate what you are trying to get across. But when you are talking on the phone, it’s all about your voice and the way you speak to them directly. That’s why having good manners on the phone is so important.
