Doing business in New Jersey can be easier with a local phone number. Here are some of the advantages of having a virtual NJ number.

Boost trust with a local area code

Jersey pride runs deep. And in order to grow trust, having a local presence can go a long way. Your New Jersey number shows customers you’re part of the community, dedicated to your state and to them, just like when everyone had a landline and local area codes meant calling from down the street. Customers can be more likely to answer your call when it comes from a local number (with your business name in the caller ID), and they recognize the area code.

Are you looking for numbers in other cities or states? OpenPhone has VoIP numbers from across the country, Canada, and even toll-free numbers. These numbers can all be activated from the same device.

Make and receive calls outside of New Jersey

You don’t need to be in New Jersey to use your new local New Jersey phone number. In the office or working remotely, you and your staff can reach New Jersey residents virtually anywhere. You just need an internet-connected device. Even in New York, New Mexico, or New Zealand, your call from a New Jersey number makes you look like a local.

Share your number with your team

OpenPhone also lets you share and restrict your New Jersey phone number access. Adding team members to your account just takes a few clicks. Like in a shared inbox, your team members can access your business communications all at once and work from synced customer contact information. They can also make and receive calls at the same time, text, and respond. That way, you all stay on the same page and miss fewer calls.

You can also provide employees with their own unique direct lines, so that as your business grows you can offer more personalized service to your customers.

Professional features, professional look

Getting a virtual number through OpenPhone makes it easy to appear more professional to prospects. OpenPhone offers instant organization with multiple team members, menus, and departments all on the alert to receive a relevant call. Customers can be routed to the right person quickly with phone menus and call forwarding. They can hear custom voicemail greetings designed for missed calls or after-hour calls, or get an automatic text message after a missed call. It’s all part of a professional look that instills confidence in your business.
