When should my business use a local number?

In our last blog, we explained how well the new 03 number range works for businesses looking to project a national presence at a cost acceptable to customers.


But Diva Telecom knows that some companies in fact want to emphasise the localness of their business?


This is when we recommend 01 or 02 numbers – also known as "geographic" or "local presence" numbers.


From solicitors to plumbers, there are many types of businesses ¬whose customers want you to be physically near and base their first searches on this. They may need to see you or simply trust a company closer to home.


Local presence numbers are fully portable


And this is the really good bit about geographic numbers: they give the impression that you are based in a certain location, but you don’t have to be.


Diva Telecom can give you a local presence number that also works like a virtual number – meaning you can actually be based anywhere, you can keep it when you move and enjoy the full range of features that come with inbound numbers. Many businesses don’t realise this yet! Key benefits of local rate numbers:


 


• give local presence • enhance image of trustworthiness • ideal for multiple branches • great for one-site operations offering locally-based services • area codes are widely known and free to many end users • keep the numbers wherever you are • available with all features of virtual numbers Make sure your business makes the most out of telephone numbers to bring in more customers. Talk to Diva Telecom about which number range to use.
