    I live in the UK and offer a service to US businesses. I have been overwhelmed with the positive responses. With some clients I discuss everything by email and they are happy. However a large chunk of these clients talk with me via email and tell me they are extremely interested and want to purchase however they want to talk with me first over the phone. Since I live in the UK and due to the nature of the US based service this isn't possible. I have a large amount of untapped clients just sitting there. I have tried looking for VAs on fiverr to make these calls on my behalf but they are slow, frustrating and simply not cut out to handle this type of job. I need some advice on how to go about this problem as I don't want dead money sitting in my inbox. Thanks.

    My 2 cents... Make those calls yourself.. No one else can represent your business better than you..you will need to work out the timezone difference and call them when they want to talk to you.. I stay up way past midnight to talk to my clients and trust me its worth it.. I wish i had more clients and i would have stayed up all night to talk to them.. Pm me if you need a hand with that calling and we can work out something

    Yeah very true. However I have an English accent and they'll be able to tell I'm not based in the US when the incoming number shows.
