Why have a business phone number

Are you still using your mobile to make and receive business phone calls? Even if you’re a sole trader, there are many downsides to only having a mobile number; from not looking professional to being unable to separate your personal and work life, it may be worth considering investing in a dedicated business phone number

We know what you’re thinking – surely a phone number is costly and requires a landline? Not ideal if you don’t want to be tied to a desk all day! However, the near-universal availability of the internet (either over wifi, 3G, or 4G) in the UK has enabled internet phone service providers like Nimvelo to offer cost-effective domestic phone numbers that can be routed to wherever you like, whenever you like. So if you’re in the office in the morning but out and about all afternoon, your phone number can stay with you all day!

Finding yourself a business number may not be high on your list of priorities but it’s something that needs to be considered to help your business establish itself. Here are some reasons why it’s something you should think about sooner rather than later…

Focus group

Focus on our focus group

A focus group is a great way to gain feedback and feelings about a certain product or service. It allows businesses to fix any issues their new offering might have before it’s released to the world.

Earlier this month we held a focus group for a brand new product that we’ve spent the past year developing. We wanted to obtain some useful information that could be used to better our service and make sure there was nothing missing that might be of value to future customers.

We’re super excited for this service to go live and for our customers (new and old) to try it out!
