How a Local Phone Number can benefit your business

Having a geographic phone number can help attract local business

Geographic phone numbers are specific to regions such as 0161 phone numbers for Manchester or 0151 phone numbers for Liverpool. Using a number that's connected to a region, can help inspire trust and loyalty in your business amongst local customers. For any business, having a local phone number will look far more professional, reliable and trustworthy than having a mobile phone number on a website. In some cases, being local can also give you an advantage over businesses with a generic phone number as visitors can feel that they will receive a more personalised or established service.

A local phone number can help you be more searchable

More and more consumers using their mobile device when searching for things, with click to call functionality increasing in popularity. Having a local number, especially one that appears or is associated with your Google search result, can encourage viewers to call your business. This is especially useful if people are searching for your office or store whilst in the nearby vicinity or on the move.

A dedicated phone number is more marketable

Having a geographic phone number on your advertising and marketing is infinitely more professional than a mobile phone number. However, with our VoIP service, if you would prefer to answer marketing lead calls on your mobile, no problem!
