It’s a good idea for businesses targeting Delawareans to have a local 302 number. Here are some ways businesses benefit from getting a phone number in Delaware:

Build loyalty with a local 302 area code

Blue Hens tend to flock together regardless of whether they’re from Selbyville, Georgetown, or Seaford. Having a local 302 telephone number can make customers feel that their investment in your business will return to their state. Further, they’re more likely to answer calls from a local number. Far more customers trust small, local companies than large, global ones, and a local presence is a significant part of that boost in confidence.

Need more virtual phone numbers? OpenPhone can activate unlimited numbers from the US, Canada, and toll-free numbers from your existing phone.

Use your Delaware phone number anywhere

Delaware tops out at just under 35 miles wide, so it’s lucky you don’t have to stay in the state to use your Delaware phone number. Whether you’re in New York, Philadelphia, or across the globe, you can use your new number with any reliable internet connection. Wherever you travel or base your business, you appear local to the 302.

Share your number with your team

OpenPhone’s phone system also lets you share and restrict phone number access. Because your Delaware number is on a virtual platform, team members can ake and receive calls simultaneously for your business. You can also let assistants take incoming calls during off-hours and collaborate on responses together using tags.

With more communication and organization, there are fewer missed calls. Sharing access helps remote teams keep customer communication synced and up-to-the-minute. Ready to provide employees with their own direct lines? You can add as many unique telephone numbers as you like to your VoIP system.

Professionalize your business communication

OpenPhone helps you appear more professional to your Delaware prospects. You can set a custom incoming caller ID to display your business name and set voicemail greetings for different scenarios, like a missed or after-hours call. You can also deploy phone menus to help callers choose which team members they need. To train teams, use call recording on customer calls. Call forwarding is also simple — just select any of your OpenPhone numbers and input the US or Canadian number where you want to direct your calls.

Why your business needs a Delaware phone number

Thomas Jefferson once gave the Diamond State its nickname because of its strategic central and waterfront location, calling it a “gem.” It’s true, Delaware’s biggest industries have easy shipping routes to large east-coast cities. Beneficiaries include chemicals, manufacturing, and the state’s petroleum refinery.

The state is no stranger to new business ventures, too. Because of its reputation for corporate privacy and courts that only handle corporate matters, many venture funds require incorporating companies to register in Delaware, so startups already in the state have a simpler journey.

Biotech is an up-and-coming industry growing in the fertile Delaware corporate landscape. It’s home to NiKang, which recently raised $200 million to scale its small molecule cancer treatments. A year before, Prelude Therapeutics, based at the Delaware Innovation Space, went public at a valuation of over $1 billion. These pharmaceutical companies join manufacturing heavy-hitters like Fujifilm, which makes inkjet cartridges in New Castle.

The state offers support in the form of multiple incubators and accelerators to businesses growing and scaling in Delaware.

Take a look at some of the most prominent:

    • Delaware Innovation Space - Billing itself as the home for “science-based” startups in Wilmington, this innovation space is outfitted for biotech, chemical, and manufacturing. Multiple funding programs focus on science-based startups, offering coaching, office hours, funds, and equipment.
    • Emerging Enterprise Center - Wilmington supports its thriving startup scene with an incubator that’s helped launch 73 companies. There are popular pitch events, office space, mentorship, and networking here.
    • Delaware Technology Park - Newark’s incubator on the campus of the University of Delaware, the hub focuses on science and technology, including IT. It provides office space, labs, grants, and networking opportunities.
    • Nextfab - With locations in Wilmington and Philadelphia, this maker-space-oriented incubator can help provide office/fabrication space, coaching, and an extensive community of educators, artists, and engineers.

    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!
