How Do I Get A Virtual Local Phone Number?

By in Business, Cloud

If you’ve been thinking about getting a local virtual phone number, but you’re not sure how to go about doing it, the solution is easy as 1, 2, 3.

Number 1.

First you’ll need to have what you’ve already got - serviced mobile phones and/or LAND lines. Since a virtual local phone number simply forwards incoming calls and provides call routing to the correct phone line, you don’t have to invest in new phones or PBX hardware.

Number 2.

Secondly, you’ll need to choose and activate your new local virtual phone number.

Virtual phone numbers allow you to pick from local numbers anywhere in North America, including California, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Colorado, New York, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Arizona, the rest of the 50 states.

Even Canadian residents and business owners can get a local virtual phone number for their business operations based in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Newfoundland, Quebec and Saskatchewan without the hassle of going through their local phone company.

On to step three.

Number 3.

After you’ve activated your new virtual local phone number, the last thing that you’ll need to do is set up your call routing rules and you can start taking incoming phone calls immediately. Since this system can pretty much route calls to wherever you need them to go.

Additionally, you can set up departmental or individual extensions and have them ring to your existing mobile phone, home or business phone number.

Once you’ve followed these 3 easy steps, you’re ready to start processing incoming phone calls and routing them to your cell phone, your home phone, your business line or the phone lines of your employees. In the event that no one is available to answer the incoming phone call, callers can leave a voicemail on your professional virtual phone system.

This is perfect for any business or Organization that has personnel in multiple locations, but needs to provide a cohesive phone presence for distributors, partners, clients and customers.
