A mobile local landline number can offer your business flexibility and convenience, allowing you to appear local to customers no matter where you’re taking the call from.
Running a small business can involve a lot of multitasking, and for many business owners, it simply isn’t possible to be waiting in the office for calls all the time.
Customers can sometimes be put off calling businesses that list a mobile number as their main point of contact as they make the presumption that a mobile number means the business isn’t very established or professional.
A local landline number for mobile allows business owners to successfully juggle the day-to-day tasks required to run a business with maintaining a professional appearance to customers.
How do mobile landline numbers work?
Getting a mobile landline number is simple with Smart Numbers. There’s no need to lose your existing mobile number, network provider, phone or sim card. Our mobile landline service works with your existing setup by simply masking your mobile number with your chosen local UK landline number when you select to do so.
Your chosen UK landline number will then be displayed to customers during both incoming and outgoing calls.
Benefits of a mobile local landline
Mobile local landline numbers are invaluable for helping small businesses to retain a professional appearance whilst still operating efficiently. Here are just a few benefits of a Smart Numbers mobile landline:
Appear local from any location – Mobile landline numbers offer small businesses great flexibility and efficiency. No matter where your business requirements take you on any given day, as far as your customers are concerned you’re still sat in your office in the location that your business operates from.
Professional – Studies have found that customers perceive businesses with a mobile number as their main point of contact to be less professional than those with landlines. A mobile landline means you can retain the professional image with your customers whilst benefiting from the flexibility of a mobile phone.
Choose a memorable number – When you get a mobile landline number you have the option to select your new number, allowing you to choose a number that will be memorable for your customers and that will stand out on your marketing materials.
Don’t miss calls – Missed calls are lost business, so it’s important to never let a call go answered. A mobile landline gives you the flexibility to take your office phone out on-the-go with you during the day so that you never miss a call.
Make your business appear more established than it is – If you’re a one man band or a small business that is just starting out then you will need to answer calls whilst you’re out on the job. A mobile landline can disguise the fact that you’re doing so by giving the appearance that the call is being answered from an office to make your business appear more established than it is.
