Make a Call to Celebrate Telephone Tuesday

Telephone TuesdayDo you know what today, Tuesday, September 4th is?  It is known as “Telephone Tuesday.”

What is “Telephone Tuesday?”

Over the past few years, businesses have experienced the phenomenon of receiving more inbound calls than on any other day of the year.  Imagine that, more calls than on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

So why the surge in calls after one of the most relaxing long weekends of the year? It is a mix of things, like summer ending, school beginning, and the holidays approaching, according to Marchex, an advertising analytics firm who first noticed the trend.

Studies have shown that in the last few years, inbound calls rose by  30 to 50 percent on “Telephone Tuesday.”
