Many small businesses start out with a mobile phone, often for reasons of cost and convenience. But there’s no escaping the fact that in some circles a mobile phone number still has a stigma attached.
For users who want the convenience of a mobile together with the perceived reliability that comes from a landline number, then a virtual landline number for mobile may present the perfect solution for your business communications.
You May Be Missing Out
For many business people, living their lives from a mobile device has become second nature. Wherever you go, you can pick up your business calls and react in real time. So whether you’re on a site visit, with a client, or on a sunny beach somewhere, you can take that crucial call from your mobile.
But that high-tech attitude may be costing us valuable business interactions. People in rural areas where mobile signals are patchy may think twice about calling a mobile number. Having a local landline number offers security and the possibility of holding a conversation without shouting and repeating everything four times.
Image is important too. A landline phone number looks more professional. It makes it look like you’ve got an office and a switchboard even if it’s just you, your van and your iPhone. In short, you look bigger, better, and more reliable.
So how do you square all that with the convenience of a mobile?
Get a Virtual Landline Number for Mobile
Smart Numbers, a creative communications company based in Southampton, specialise in providing virtual landline numbers that immediately divert to your mobile or landline anywhere in the UK. You can have the convenience of calls on the move with a good, solid-looking landline number.
And think of the other benefits? How often do you end up changing our mobile and finding ourselves with a new number? The associated costs of new stationery and signage can be eye watering. Using a virtual phone number is a way round that.
Better still, a virtual landline can use any UK area code so no matter where you are, you can give a number local to the client base you want to reach. You can even move towns without having to change number. It’s all so simple.
So How Does It Work?
Smart Numbers use BT and Cable and Wireless Tier 1 networks, which means you get all the benefits you’d expect from landline quality. This number is virtual, so it doesn’t need to be attached to a physical landline. Instead incoming calls can be diverted to any number of mobile or landline numbers. Outgoing calls can be made from your mobile and show the virtual number to your recipient meaning your private number stays private.
There’s a small set-up fee and a rolling monthly agreement. But for that you get a range of useful call management features and all that positive perception that comes of having a landline. Best of all, there’s no need to change from your existing mobile supplier. So what are you waiting for? Contact Smart Numbers Ltd and get your landline number that diverts to your mobile phone today.
