Today is ‘Telephone Tuesday,’ when inbound calls to businesses increase by 34% or more

First there was Black Friday; then there was Cyber Monday. Now there is Telephone Tuesday — the day after Memorial Day, when inbound calls to businesses spike by 34 percent, according to call-analytics firm Marchex

With summer over and eyes turned toward the holidays, many people start looking to get things done — whether it’s booking holiday travel, getting cars repaired, or making sure college students are squared away with insurance.

According to Marchex, industries like law, finance, real estate, and banking all see call spikes the day after Labor Day. So do cable and satellite companies, which experience a 65 percent increase from callers looking to get the best football deals on sports packages.
