Pocket Landlines have become an increasingly popular option for small business owners. You can have a local landline number that will be directed straight to your mobile phone or even use a pre-existing landline number. There are numerous benefits to making this small change in your business, some of which are listed below.
The first and most obvious benefit of having a pocket landline is that you will be able to answer more calls. Every call will be directed to your mobile phone so you will never need to rush to answer a call at your work base or return any messages of missed calls. Wherever you are and whatever time of day it is you will be able to speak to customers.
Research has also found that using a landline number as opposed to a mobile number makes customers feel more reassured. Not only does it look more professional but because the number will have you local prefix people will see where you are based. As most people search for local suppliers seeing your number will automatically give them this knowledge and peace of mind.
There are lots of features that come with a pocket landline that you might not necessarily have available with a normal landline phone. One of which is that you are able to access your own pocket landline account online from any device to manage how your customers are contacting you. This includes being able to set hours in which you can be contacted, setting up a business welcome message to give a personal yet professional touch and have a ‘whisper’ message allowing you know if it is a landline call. The online platform can also help show you your business statistics such as during which hours you receive the most calls and where your calls are coming from.
These are just a few of the many benefits that come with having a pocket landline. For more information on what number solutions are right for you, contact Smart Numbers today.
