I’ve Got Your Telephone Number. Call Me, Maybe?
The telephone number has long been the first and most trust point of contact for any business. Though there is a multitude of other communications methods out there now, the importance of having a business telephone number hasn’t faltered one bit. Online portals allow one-click-to-call interfaces directly from a web browser that makes having a conversation with customers faster and easier than ever. Additionally, studies have long proven that the simple act of placing a phone call indicates a much higher likelihood of a prospect making a purchase. Plus, the odds of that customer purchasing from the first company they speak with are staggering, as well. All of the evidence that supports the need for a business to have an immediate voice connection with their market makes having the right business telephone number almost as simple and simply having one. But for many newer companies that are accustomed to cutting-the-cable and employing modern, cloud-based communications and collaboration methods, enrolling with an antiquated telephone company’s usurious service contract doesn’t sound very attractive at all. We agree. That’s why we maintain hundreds of thousands of business telephone numbers as part of our total business communications services product array.
How to Get The Right Business Telephone Number
The need for your business to have a telephone number should be pretty clear, but the path on how to go about obtaining one may not be as apparent. Fortunately, thanks to the infinite amount of flexibility and routing options that are inherent in modern, cloud-based business telephone systems, adding, removing, and managing telephone numbers is easy.
