When it comes to running your own business, you may find it easy to set up with a mobile number, at least to begin with. And why not? It’s endlessly flexible, and it means that you can keep in touch with your clients and customers wherever you go. In fact, we highly recommend using a mobile for business purposes if convenient to you!
However, you may find that, in time, you need or want a landline number for your business. There are plenty of great reasons why you might want to make the switch. For one thing, many people see landline numbers as proof of a solid, fixed business. If you have a landline rooted in a particular area, you are establishing yourself as a physical firm.
However, did you know that you don’t have to set up a physical office to get a landline number? In fact, you can set up a landline number for your mobile for anywhere in the UK – but why might this be of benefit to you?
Capture Local Interest
One of the massive benefits to setting up a local landline number for your mobile lies in the fact that you can start to appeal to local users and audiences. By cementing yourself in, for example, the London area with an 020 number, you are showing people that you are appealing to those working and living in the city.
Of course, this goes for every other area in the UK, too. If you are running a business that depends on local trade, such as a labouring firm, you’ll naturally want to connect with customers nearby. Therefore, you could set up a local prefix for Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff, Belfast – the list goes on and on.
It’s Great for Growth
The fact is many people will see mobile phone numbers as ‘entrepreneurial’ or associated with sole traders. That’s no bad thing, and for the most part, it’s likely to be the case in reality! However, if you have designs on growing your business into a bigger enterprise, then you will likely want to cement yourself as something ‘more’.
When you set up a local prefix for your mobile, you are effectively showing your callers that you have a local business, rather than purely being a trader who works in the area. If you want to expand your operation, then it certainly makes sense to reach for something bigger than yourself!
There’s No Need for an Office
With more and more of us working outside of physical confines and locations in this day and age, it makes sense that there are plenty of us who want landline numbers, but who don’t want to have to tangle with the physical office setups that come with them.
When you set up a landline number through Capital Telecom, you can be sure that you can benefit from a prefix without having to set up a physical location and certainly without having to pay out for any business premises rental fees.
The fact remains – running a business as a sole trader or an entrepreneur is expensive enough at times! Therefore, if you can do anything to dismantle physical costs, it is certainly worth doing. Why rent an office at all if you are only going to use it for the phone number that comes with it?
Telecoms are Changing
There are many more reasons why people are moving mobile numbers over to landline standards. It’s great to be able to manage your business comms via mobile, but sometimes, you are going to need to give your customers a little more confidence before they call you. Believe it or not, some of that can fall down to the number you give them!
