5 Benefits Of A Business Phone Number

With MeloTel’s Commercial Phone Services, you get more than just a revolutionary way to make and take phone calls. Our phone services are cloud-based. That means that instead of a traditional landline, you’ll be using the internet to connect with your clients, colleagues and co-workers.

What does this entail for your business? Firstly, you’ll enjoy big savings! Between our FREE Polycom phone rental program (that’s right, your phones are free!) and the fact you’ll have unlimited calling to more than 22 countries, your monthly phone bills will see a significant drop. In addition, our phone services provide crystal clear calling and a long list of incredible features!

Not to mention, you will also enjoy all of the benefits of having a business phone number. Here are five:

1. You keep your personal cell phone number private.

How often have you had to give out your cell phone number for business purposes? In the end, this turns into being inundated with business phone calls after business hours. As well, it makes it difficult to know how to even answer your phone. Do you simply say “hello”? Or do you have to answer in a professional manner, stating your name and the name of the business? It can make things a bit awkward sometimes.

2. You can stick to your business hours.

When you use a business phone number, you know that it’s operational between specific hours of the day. This enables you to better maintain work/life balance. Doing so is integral to both your mental health and ability to perform your work efficiently. You don’t want to be bogged down with business calls 24 hours a day. Using a business number helps you to stick to your work schedule.

3. You can have a professional voicemail.

With MeloTel’s Voicemail to your Email feature, you enjoy the wonders of having your voicemails sent directly to your email inbox as mp3 files. That way, you can listen to your messages on any device you wish. They also ensure you never miss another important call!

4. You can have calls forwarded to multiple phones simultaneously.

With MeloTel’s Single Number Reach feature, you can easily forward your business phone number to several different devices of your choice. This amazing service gives you the option of using your cell phone, home phone or any other phone you like for business purposes. All phones ring at the same time when the business number is called. It enables you to work remotely while maintaining professionalism on your calls.

5. You can have a greeting message for your customers.

Believe it or not, this can actually make or break your company’s reputation. When you give out your cell number for business purposes, you run the risk of having your clients listen to a generic voice greeting. “Do I have the right number?” they may be thinking. Or worse – “What kind of business is this?” With a business number, your callers are assured a professional voice greeting.
