Do I Need a Business Phone Number?

A lot of entrepreneurs use their personal numbers for their businesses. But now that our whole lives are on our phones, this is starting to change. Listing your mobile number on your website, social media and business cards can land you on robocall lists and give hackers a way in—until your private information is no longer private. If you want to avoid intrusive spam calls and keep your data safe, setting up an independent business line is a crucial step.

A dedicated number also gives your customers a simple way to get in touch, while helping to paint a picture of professionalism and success. When you’re unavailable, clients and leads will reach a company voicemail greeting, rather than your personal one. And since you’ll know right away which calls are business-related, you’ll be ready to answer with a smile.

How To Get a Business Phone Number

You could carry around a second cell phone (oof) or get a dual-SIM Android phone. But many business owners are going with a low-maintenance, high-tech solution: the VoIP phone number.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) numbers are internet-powered phone numbers that work on your existing phone, laptop, desktop or tablet. In addition to the ordinary phone functions you’d expect—calling, texting, and voicemail—VoIP phone lines provide added perks, like visual voicemail, auto-attendant, downloadable messages and call forwarding.

We’re a certified VoIP provider and can set you up with a professional phone number in less than 5 minutes. Here’s how to get started.
