Playing the “Phone Tag” Game

In the world of texts, emails, Messenger, Instagram, it’s easier than ever to communicate with clients.

However, there are times that you simply have to pick up the phone and (Gasp!) call them.

I recently read an article about the best time to phone clients—based upon their occupations—if you don’t want to play the “phone tag” game.

By the way, you know their occupation because it’s on the application.
