Do I need a business phone number?
Do I need a business phone number? It is a common question these days. In a world of everyone having a mobile phone, many business owners think it is ok to just use their mobile phone as a business phone.
In the video clip below Tanya speaks to James Partner from Oasis Technology Ltd about business phone numbers. She asks the question for you, do I need a business phone number?
The specifics – what do we talk about?
Do I need a business phone number is they key question we wanted to discuss. This is because many people Tanya has helped have not had a business phone number before. We discuss perception and the importance of customer (or potential) customer perception in business.
Baring in mind that the goal in business is to convert as many people that see your business into customers, we want to ensure we give ourselves the best chance to do that. If you are displaying your mobile phone number as your only contact number on your website you come across as less established than your competitor on the next google listing.
We talk about some industries, perhaps tradespeople not being expected to be at a desk. They would be less likely to be judged for using a mobile number to run their business. This lead us to talk about some of the benefits of the business phone number app systems and therefore you can differentiate between a personal call and a work call and automatically diverting your calls to voicemail during out of office hours.
We also talk about technical changes coming up to shake up the phone industry in a big big way.
