So, your business is on the up, and you need to move to a new location. Or perhaps you’ve found the office of your dreams and can’t wait to move in. There’s only one problem. You don’t think you can take your phone number with you. How will your customers know your new number? You can try and notify them through social media and email, but what about the ones who aren’t so active online? Without that phone number, your loyal customers won’t be able to reach you anymore, and you’ll start to see your profits fall. Your current telephone provider wants to close your number – which you know if going to cost you business!
Don’t panic! All is not lost. In fact, you will be surprised how common a problem this is.
Customers want a service that is convenient, reliable, trustworthy, and has excellent communication. Changing phone numbers puts your reputation with all of these things at risk. Having to search online or ask about for your new number is not convenient for customers. The fact that they were not aware of the change may come across as though you don’t value their service, almost as if you couldn’t be bothered. This signals to your customers that you may not have the best communication skills either. All of this hassle because you needed to move.
