Communication connects everyone to everyone else all around the world. One of the great advantages we have today is popular use of smartphones and telephones. These amazing inventions enable not only people, but businesses and even devices to connect to each other.
Just like every business needs a social media presence, and a website, the need is even greater for a phone number. It is simply imperative to have a business phone number. As we all know, society is interconnected with online-oriented communication. Having a business telephone number is a necessity, not a want.
If you want to maintain consistency of service, having a business phone number is essential. It enables your business to never miss a beat in transacting with your customers or other stakeholders. Many businesses consider increasing the budget allocated to a business phone number, because there are premium numbers available at a price. Did you know that there are plenty of other reasons why a business needs a dedicated number.
Here are some of the top reasons why businesses consider getting a phone number:
A business phone number also helps you with your branding. The more consistent your branding is, the more customers you will recognise and remember you. Having one designated number for all your transactions saves you the stress of identifying clients calling your personal phone number.
If you are ready to dig deeper into this concept for your business, then keep scrolling down to make the most of buying a phone number for your business.
We all want what’s best for our business, however there is no guarantee that everything will be perfect and right the first time. You can make sure that everything goes according to plan when choosing a phone number.
How is that possible? First, make sure that it is a good phone number.
Identifying the ideal phone number for your business is challenging as there are many factors to consider. To save you from getting frustrated over it, here are some guidelines to save you time.
Lucky numbers and bad numbers
If you hope that your business will expand outside the borders of your country then it is recommended that you embrace “GLOCAL” for your local consumers. “Glocal” is a term derived from local and global which means that you have a global mindset and reach, but you also accommodate the cultures, ideals, and needs of your local audiences. Using this to choose a good phone number for your business will help you thrive.
In certain countries in the West, you may notice that there is no 13th floor in many buildings. Why? Because superstitions exist in many countries and the number 13 is considered to be unlucky. Numbers associated with bad or good luck vary from one place to another, so itis important to know where your customers are and what they might consider to be lucky.
666 – some would consider this the number of the beast however that is not the case for everyone. In China for example, a number with 666 means that “things are going smoothly” and would be considered to be very lucky.
9 – In Japan, this number is bad luck because it sounds like word suffering in their country.
17 – In Italy, this is also considered unlucky because when rearranged in the Roman numeral XVII can create the word “VIXI”—translated from Latin to mean “my life is over.“
The bottomline here is to not overlook the meaning of the numbers so you choose, when deciding on a phone number because it could mean something different for different people.
In Numerology, every number leaves an impact. Living in a digitally dedicated world, mobile phones are considered a necessity and having a phone number is too. Thus, the phone number you have is directly linked to us and influences our life. Choosing the right number can be the start of a successful journey or the end of an idea.
Check the history of the phone number
For many businesses, phones are the first point of contact. Having a phone that makes a business look and feel professional, providing quality customer service is the first step to success. If you are buying a phone number, that phone number needs to look and feel professional too. Before purchasing the phone number you must complete the due diligence on it. Numbers have a history.
The Phone Number Recycling Dilemma is real and can cause some huge problems for businesses. It is the term that refers to the recycling of deactivated or disconnected numbers. These numbers often get reassigned when they are deactivated.
Making sure that a number is new and secure is a basic process everyone should go through before purchasing as it could have integrity risks for the business. As almost all social media applications require a phone number to retrieve an old account, it is also prudent to keep in mind that your new number could be linked to someone’s old social media account. To reduce the problems associated with getting an unwanted phone number, do a background check on social media, through search engines and spam filters on the number you have chosen.
If your new number was used by a spamming call centre, it could be blocked by thousands of people. If your new number used to be the phone number for an extremist group, you could receive hate calls as soon as you activate it.
The number, if it is a recycled number, needs to have been deactivated for long enough for all the negativity associated with it to have passed. It is best to avoid recycled numbers if you can.
You need to remember your number, in case you lose it, or someone tries to steal it. There is often personal and business information tied to your phone number. If you lose it, forget it, or if someone tries to steal it, there will be a detailed verification process just to retrieve the important details linked to your phone number.
Good news is, if you have an existing number switching to another carrier would not be as difficult as you imagine it could be. Today, it is simple.
Porting numbers over networks
Porting phone numbers is a process that gives telephone users the right to retain their phone number even if they are switching to another network service provider. You won’t need to notify your customers about the change, you simply retain what is yours. Now phone numbers can be for life.
The process of porting numbers is relatively easy:
Although porting a phone number can be such an easy process, you still need to be responsible for your contract agreement with your old carrier, until it is closed and fully settled. You can check contract requirements and obligations before opting to port your number to avoid future problems. If you check your bank balance, and see missed transactions or high early termination fees, have been deducted, that would not be a pleasant surprise.
There are also other ways to ensure the information associated with your phone number is stored for back-up purposes. Applications like Google Drive offer this kind of service on clouding data.
Easy to remember numbers
If you buy a phone number for your business, simple is best since it is easier to remember. If your business is operating in a saturated market then get a phone number that people would not forget.
Here are some of the tips for phone numbers that can be easy to keep in mind:
As an example, a business named HYDROSE could have the number 0800 493 7673 which could be advertised alphanumerically as 0800 HYDROSE which will stick in the mind of customers over the standard number.
Spelling your company name out in numbers?
The third tip of setting your business phone number is a good idea to establish your brand in the market. If your business has still not built a strong presence in the market, incorporating your company name into your phone number is one way to boost your connections and create a relationship with your customers. Also, numbers are one of the things that are difficult for some people to remember since they are intangible yet they play a big role in people’s lives. They can be seen in IDs, postcodes, addresses, bank details and much more. Making sure that people remember your number is the start of a successful marketing journey.
