Having a non geographic number could be the difference between a potential client calling or not and even as a small business owner they are often a worthwhile investment.
KEEPING IN TOUCH
Keeping customers happy is always important. Whether current or potential customers, keeping on top of their phone calls is of the utmost importance when doing business with them. There are many advantages to having a non geographic number, particularly when considering a form of communication with great importance such as phone calls. If you, as a small business owner, are out of the office for a period of time, a standard regional phone number could be the cause of a lot of unnecessary losses in clients. For this reason, we would encourage you to take advantage of non geographic numbers such as 0800 numbers (and 080 numbers in general), 0845 numbers, 0844 numbers, and 0870 numbers. Incoming calls can also be diverted to your mobile for added convenience while away from the office. This means that you no longer have to worry about waiting around a company landline in fear that you will miss out on a potential client. With this non geographic routing method, you can be more connected to your clients than ever before.
HOW CAN IT BE DONE?
There are several non geographic number routing plans that are available to small business owners. This means that hassle free solutions can be provided when making the transition from a standard mobile number to a non geographic number. Many of these plans include bundled minutes allowing for free mobile routing. This makes the entire process more seamless and effective and because of the nature of these routing plans, you can find the most suitable and affordable package for you. Non geographic routing also allows for increased control over incoming phone calls from clients. With non geographic routing, the business owner can control how and when calls are answered. This gives you more freedom and flexibility when it comes to your communication with clients.
THE ADDED BENEFITS
Another notable advantage of non geographic routing is that callers only have to pay one set price. This means that a caller from anywhere in the country could call you and still pay the same price, unlike with mobile calls. Yet again, this allows for greater freedom in running your business.
The professional image of a business is accentuated by a non geographic number. Non geographic numbers seem clean, presentable, and professional, which could lead to an influx in clients – something that has led to lots of SMEs purchasing 0345 numbers and other 03 numbers for their business.
Non geographic routing is also highly customisable. For example, a non geographic number can be routed to different mobile devices depending on the time of day. This means that a business owner can use a personal mobile that can also take professional calls during working hours and redirect it at other times.
Non geographic routing is also advisable because of its convenience. It helps to reduce the hassle that is often encountered with porting a mobile phone number.
The service plans for non geographic routing are also well within the price range of small business owners, allowing for a new, professional, and highly customisable form of communication.
