What is a local number?
title shape

A local number is a phone number containing an area code that covers a specific city, state, or region. Having a local number will help your business reach specific communities and garner more support from potential customers. People generally support and trust local businesses more than those with an unrecognizable area code that makes them seem detached and impersonal.

Benefits of a local business phone number

Local phone numbers offer several benefits that help you establish a stronger connection with customers and help you more effectively manage your business operations.

Build a local presence

Having a local phone number helps establish a local presence within a specific area. When you contact target audiences through your local number, this can encourage them to answer. People are far more likely to answer the phone when they believe a local business is attempting to reach them. Otherwise, a lack of recognition could deter people from responding.

Get unlimited local phone numbers

You might have multiple locations, or you may simply want to connect with people across several service areas. Looking for more than one local phone number for your business? You can get as many as you need for your team.

Keep your personal number private

When adding local phone numbers for your business, you can keep your personal phone number private while still enabling business calls and texts on your personal cellphone using our Android or iPhone app. By keeping your numbers separate, you'll always be able to tell when an incoming call is for work when using a personal device.

Easily manage every contact

See all work-related calls and messages in one space. That way, none of your important conversations fall between the cracks.

Avoid having to buy a second phone

Save even more money upfront as you won't need to add any extra hardware to your existing phone systems. A virtual number lets you call and text from any computer, mobile phone, or other smart device.

Just a piece of advice. I used my personal cell number as the company number and I still regret it a decade later (I get so many stupid calls). Don’t do what I did. I wish I had a service like this 10 years ago!
