Does your business need a Michigan number? Here are some reasons why you should consider it:

It’s hard to earn trust without a local area code

If you’re targeting Michigan customers who explain where they’re from by holding up their hand, you might seem like an outsider without a local phone number. In fact, most of us have a little more trust for businesses embedded in our towns. We know our money is going to the local economy, and we know exactly how to get ahold of our neighborhood small businesses when we need to.

Using a local number gives you a head start on building that level of customer trust. It’s easy to call, feels close by, and ensures customers understand your time zone and business hours — not to mention are more likely to pick up the phone!.

Do you want virtual phone numbers for different cities? Don’t worry. OpenPhone lets you add and use unlimited numbers — from all around North America — all from the same device.

Use a Michigan number worldwide

With a local Michigan number, you can work remotely from anywhere. OpenPhone supports unlimited calls and messages from the US and Canada. You can also add international credits for calling and texting to other countries at a fraction of the cost of most traditional carriers.

In the office or working remotely, you and your staff can reach Michigan residents virtually. All you need is WiFi and your favorite cell phone, tablet, or laptop computer. No matter where you sign in, you look local.

Give the whole team access to a business phone number

OpenPhone lets you share access with anyone on your team. That means your business number can be staffed during multiple shifts, many workers can jump in to answer customer inquiries, and calls are less likely to go unanswered. If you have multiple numbers, you can also assign them to specific team members so the customers who contact that line receive personal support from a team member skilled to answer their calls.

A virtual phone system offers peace of mind. Share your number with some and restrict it from others. It’s easy to add a team to your OpenPhone account and setup only takes a few minutes.

Professionalize your business communication

OpenPhone offers a suite of business tools that make your number simple to use. Set up caller ID, business hours, and custom voice messages without headaches or hassles. You can also route callers to the right person based on their needs using phone menus (no PBX required). Features like these tell residents of the Wolverine State that your business is reliable, professional, and legitimate.

Reasons to use a Michigan phone number

Once a hub for automobiles and Motown, Michigan has new promising industries carrying it into a technological future. Manufacturing is still king, however. Ford, General Motors, and Lear take the top spots in Michigan for the number of employees. That has meant opportunities in “advanced manufacturing” — developing technology to help factories become more efficient, safe, and profitable. A related passion in a state with cities like Pontiac and Cadillac? Advanced Automotive tech. Ann Arbor’s own May Mobility, for example, is pioneering the self-driving car.

Alternative energy is also promising returns in Michigan’s future, including solar and wind energy. In Ann Arbor, the top-ranked University of Michigan helps spur innovative industries. Here in “Tree Town,” it’s no wonder research is underway helping reduce industry’s effects on the climate.

    • TechTown - Detroit’s meeting place for tech startups, they’ve helped generate $172 million in investment and create 1,600 jobs.
    • Spark - Ann Arbor’s startup organization has incubator, accelerator, and boot camp programs to serve various local organizations. Known primarily for life sciences and biotechnology, they have diverse programs in multiple industries.
    • Centrepolis - If advanced manufacturing makes you excited to call Michigan home, this is the accelerator for you. They are focused on manufacturing tech, and the accelerator programs, networking, and pitch contests all promise to connect startups with the resources they need. Centrepolis even have the world’s first manufacturing tech program that pairs startups with Michigan manufacturing firms (in partnership with two other local incubator/accelerator programs).
    • Lean Rocket Lab - Michigan’s top accelerators buzz with programs in advanced manufacturing, and this is no exception. But they also have co-working space, networking, and mentoring from their hub in Jackson.
