The Importance Of Communicating By Telephone

In the age of instant messaging, email and social media, we forget the effectiveness of speaking with somebody over the phone.

Telephone communication is only around 5% of all business communications, and even less for social interaction.

Nonetheless it has real benefits in an increasingly impersonal world. The call continues to be a significant way to improve business and social interactions.

Personal and Immediate

Speaking on the phone is a much better way to gain a personal response.
Its often hard to gauge peoples true response via email or messaging.
Which is why calling somebody is often better as you can understand the person on a much deeper level.

Dr. Albert Mehrabian’s 1967 study, “Inference of Attitudes from Nonverbal Communication in Two Channels,” named three the different parts of effective communications:
Body gestures accounts for 55 percent, voice tone for 38 percent and spoken words for 7 percent.
On calling, voice tone give dimension and emotion to words, increasing the potency of the communication.
Certain body gestures, such as for example smiling and standing while talking, can come through in the conversation.
Something which emails or texts doesn’t get across.



In a business environment, it’s simple to log on a conference call with colleges all around the globe.
This can help brainstorm ideas, and resolve issues that can be created around emails.
For example, the colleague who doesn’t answer respond to their emails for days…


An all important part for both businesses and personal life is keeping things private.
Confidential Phone Call
In the age of social media and messages being stored on our devices, all text, emails and messages are logged.
If you have sensitive issues, its always better to contact somebody over the phone. This way things wont be misinterpreted and won’t leave anything that could haunt you later


Texting driving is being clamped down on more and more, and hands-free technology is becoming a lot more accessible.
It is clear from a safety point then calling is the way to go.
Don't text and drive call instead
In the UK it is now the law that if you are caught using your phone and driving, then you will be hit with a fine and 6 points on your driving licence.
