Are you in the process of setting up a new business? Are you dependent on a mobile number, without any kind of access to a fixed landline? It may be time to look into setting up a virtual number. But what exactly will this involve – and why might you want to give off the impression of a landline, rather than a mobile phone?
Here at Capital Telecom, we offer a wide variety of services to help boost your growing business from the ground-up. Now really is the time to start tailoring commercial communications your way! Here’s a quick guide on what to expect when setting up a landline number for your mobile, and why it might be worth you doing, full stop!
Why Choose a Landline for Your Mobile?
When setting up a business or a contractor service on your own for the first time, it’s likely to be convenient to run much of it from your handset. After all, if you are already running a mobile service, then it makes sense to be making and taking calls on the go, too!
However, when it comes to actually growing your business, some will advise that you’ll need a professional number or call signature. A mobile number is convenient, but if you want to set up a solid brand with plenty of appeal, it makes sense to have a local or national number that people can easily recognise.
Therefore, it’s a good idea to consider ‘wrapping’ your mobile number in a landline number instead. And that, of course, is where Capital Telecom can come in handy.
Getting Your Own Landline Number
In the past, securing your own landline number always meant having to actually set up a physical office. Even now, there are some small business owners who find themselves tying down to physical locations and telephone exchanges just for a number with a certain appeal or a specific prefix. In the modern age, this really doesn’t have to be the case.
Virtual numbers are a relatively new standard that businesspeople all over the world are taking advantage of. Instead of setting up a physical office or having to tie yourself to one location, you can request a virtual number from a company such as Capital Telecom to effectively ‘overwrite’ your mobile.
This means there’s no need for you to have to stay put in one particular place. It also means that you can flexibly manage your number through an off-site team. Capital Telecom offers virtual numbers on a VoIP basis, which means there’s never any need for outdated, physical cabling in the local area. Virtual means virtual – it’s all in the cloud, and it’s all easy to access and use at any time.
This means that people can call your landline number and you can be anywhere in the country. People will know that you are running a professional service or business and you won’t have to stay put in any one location or place.
Choosing the Right Number For Your Business
Of course, choosing a landline number for your mobile really doesn’t start and end there. There are actually several different types of landline number you could convert your mobile to!
For example, why not consider a landline number starting 0800? This freephone standard will encourage people to call you without incurring any fees. Or, if you prefer, an 0345 number is a great midpoint, as it means people can still call you within their package minutes, and you won’t have to worry about shelling out too much for their calls!
Ultimately, there is a range of different choices and options when it comes to setting up the perfect business number for your mobile phone. A mobile is naturally going to serve you well if you’re always on the road, but when it comes to actively building up that customer base, it might serve you well to start wrapping it up in a physical landline appearance!
Grab Your Landline Number
Actually setting up a physical landline number means a lot of time and effort, as well as money, spent on your part. What’s more, there might not even be any point in setting up a physical office just for the phone number! Therefore, make a point of getting in touch with Capital Telecom – and we will set you up on a fantastic virtual number that covers your mobile – so people can call you wherever you are, and always expect a professional service
