Why Businesses should Use Virtual Phone Numbers

If you have clients across different countries, it is essential to have an uninterrupted flow of communication. Being available to answer any queries shows that your client’s project and contentment are important for you. An efficient communication process is vital for the growth of a business as it helps you retain and gain new clients, build good customer relations and generate revenue.

Let’s say if you are an Australian company and your exceptional product and service helped you amass clients from around the world in a short period of time, it will be difficult for you to scale when you keep toting a local Australian number for your international clients.

Most businesses will be skeptical of seeing a phone number from a different country and the assumption that calling a different country will lead to steep call charges doesn’t help either. This is where virtual phone numbers come into play, it helps you gain trust by providing a number of the same country you want to contact.

If the Australian company purchases a USA virtual phone number, all the communication made through that number will indicate a local USA number. Not only will your customers be comfortable calling a local number, but they will also be able to trust you better.

Virtual phone numbers, by being local numbers get the confidence of prospects which eventually leads to a direct increase in the number of times they try to reach you. This is a must-have tool for startups and small businesses as it enables you to communicate to your global clients at significantly lower rates.

Frequently Asked Questions about Virtual Phone Number

A CallHippo Virtual Phone Number allows you to have a local area code and phone number in another state or country. This means you can make calls, and be reached by people with the same area code, for the price of a local call.

If you’re running a business that depends upon users who live in the area, then you may want to choose a local phone number. Here’s why:

  1. Local phone numbers identify your location. Certain area codes make it obvious where your business is based, which can be important depending on what you sell.
  2. They cater to regional customers. If people that live in Philadelphia see that you’re based in Philadelphia, they’ll be more likely to buy from you. If you have a brick and mortar location and only sell to people in your region, then you probably want a local business phone number.
  3. Sometimes customers prefer if a business seems local. Sometimes a local business number appears more down to earth, especially compared to a toll free number that implies a national, less personal focus. People have a lot of pride in where they live and work, and often love other sentimental locations.
  4. Easier to receive international calls. It is more difficult to receive international calls with a toll free number because calls are paid for by the recipient. This isn’t a problem with local phone numbers.
