There are many reasons why businesses should get a local Maine phone number. Here are some of the benefits:

A 207 area code invokes trust

More than two-thirds of customers trust local businesses more than major corporations. When your business phone number is local, you benefit from the sense of community and belonging that most customers value. On top of that, Downeaster customers know you’re in their time zone and are more likely to answer calls from your number. From Auburn to Brunswick, you’re a neighbor.

You’d still be able to make calls from your local Maine phone number. As long as you have an internet connection, you can make and receive calls and your business always seems local.

Share your 207 number with a team

Could your team use access to your Maine business communication, just like with an email inbox? Simply invite them to share your main business number, and you easily can share contacts, messages, and answering duties. Anyone can make and receive calls using OpenPhone’s virtual phone numbers. Sharing lets you handle more calls during your busiest times and collaborate on messages.

When employees need direct lines, OpenPhone lets you add as many new phone numbers as you like to your VoIP telephone system.

Look more professional

OpenPhone has easy-to-use business features that let you uplevel your business presence with prospects, including caller ID, so customers know to pick up your call. You can record multiple custom greetings for different occasions, like after-hours calls and missed calls. Plus, record calls so you can train newcomers on your processes.

Use call forwarding to quickly reroute calls to any number you like. While you’re at it, let customers use phone menus to route their calls to the department they need or communicate with your company via MMS and SMS texting.

Why your business needs Maine area codes

Maine’s expansive North Woods and long coastline are home to many natural resources on which Maine’s economic growth rests (and it’s not all lobster). From paper to pine trees and strawberries, business is booming.

While Maine’s natural resource-based businesses are growing, other longtime Maine standards, like boat building and manufacturing, have given way to newcomers like tech and tourism. Its famous coastline, lighthouses (Portland Head Light in South Portland is iconic), and scrumptious oysters bring close to 90,000 jobs for the tourism industry, a thriving food scene, and most recently, investment in an artificial intelligence research hub in Portland to complement the city’s popularity and strong economy.

Biotech is a bustling part of that growth. Maine has more than 200 biotech companies focused on all aspects of the industry, including clean air and water, animal health, and pharmaceuticals.

The state supports startups with incubator and accelerator programs for Mainers. Here are some prominent ones:

    • Maine Center for Entrepreneurial Development - This longtime non-profit startup resource has a popular food and beverage accelerator as well as programs for tech and biotech. Having served nearly 400 companies, it’s a longtime community partner with a great network, mentoring, and alumni.
    • Roux institute TechStars - The TechStars Incubator programs are national. Still, Portland entrepreneurs have a hometown mentor in Silicon Valley investor and Lewistowner David Roux, with an accelerator program meant to fund AI, life sciences, data, and analytics startups.
    • E2Tech - An energy and cleantech incubator, its three-month program grads compete in Maine’s startup pitch contests. In the meantime, they have a packed calendar of conferences and talks.
