London is, inarguably, a commercial capital of the continent. There are more businesses and entrepreneurs crammed into every corner of the city than perhaps anywhere else in the UK! For that reason, more and more businesses choose to set up shop here, at least for the very fact that B2B opportunities and networking are always rife. There are, of course, always likely to be plenty of customers you can appeal to across the city and its various boroughs, too!
However, many successful businesses base all over the UK. Who’s to say that you need offices in London to make a real go of your enterprise? Sure – having a base in London is likely to be a massive boost to your business and operation – but what if you can’t afford to set up there? What if it is just not physically possible for you to move your premises down to the city at this time?
If you really want to take advantage of basing your company in London without having to move anything major, there are a few quick steps you can take to still show the world where you’re operating from. Why not consider virtual London numbers?
What Are Virtual London Numbers?
Virtual London numbers are landline call signs which are based in the city – it’s as simple as that. However, instead of being attached to physical offices and premises, they are completely digital, or virtual. This means that anyone taking up these numbers could have a number that they use elsewhere in the country – and use a London line as a ‘wrapper’ of sorts. You could even have a mobile number, for example, and use an 0207 London number as your main port of contact. It simply means that customers and clients call your London call sign rather than your mobile number.
This is likely to be very appealing to people who want to establish themselves in London, but who may be physically or financially unable to – right now, anyway! Therefore, instead of breaking your budget and causing yourself all manner of hassle and strife, it makes sense to set up a London number that will act as a wrapper or covering for your existing line.
Why Set Up Virtual London Numbers?
There are plenty of great reasons. For one thing, as mentioned, the opportunities for business growth and B2B connectivity in the city are immense. Therefore, to show that you have vested interest in London and in reaching out to clients and customers throughout the area, it makes sense to set up a virtual number to establish yourself there.
Your customers and callers will therefore be of the understanding that you have an office in the city. This is likely to be very appealing to many people. It will likely appeal to local customers and business owners and will also help to attract international interest. By setting yourself up in London, you are at the heart of all the best business opportunities the UK has to offer.
The best part is, you won’t have to move or set up any offices in the city. If this is something you want to achieve in the near future, fantastic – for now, you can get a real foot in the door by setting up a virtual number people can call in the meantime.
Don’t Rely On Your Existing Numbers
It’s tempting to offer out your existing numbers and call signs to people, but believe it or not, the numbers you use might have an impact on their impressions of you. The best thing you can do for your business right away, believe it or not, is to set up a professional number that people will be happy to call and confident to do business through.
Unfortunately, while it is quick, easy, and flexible to run a mobile number as your main business contact, not everyone will feel comfortable or happy contacting a private line for business services. Therefore, setting up a London landline contact is a great way to make sure that your clients know you literally ‘mean business’.
It’s fairly bizarre – but it is all about customer and client psychology. When faced with calling a company or new client, would you find it more appealing to call a London landline or a mobile number? Yes – it’s easy for mobile contractors to use mobile numbers as their main points of contact – but if you really want to pull in the customers and clients, you’re going to need to cement a professional number.
