Does every business need a local New York telephone phone number? There are many reasons why having a local presence can boost your business. Here are a few:

A local presence builds trust

Want to get into a New York state of mind? Have a local phone number. It’s easy to remember and dial, looks local when customers are making up their minds about whether to answer and even shares with people what business hours you’re likely to respond.

That makes you a community member, which increases trust with customers who are excited to do business locally rather than with a national or international company.

Need virtual phone numbers outside the Empire State? OpenPhone lets you add and use unlimited numbers from all US states and most Canadian provinces, as well as toll-free numbers.

Use your New York phone number anywhere

You don’t have to be in the Bronx, upstate, or even in the US to use your New York number. You can work remotely and still communicate from your New York phone number on your phone or computer. Remote work, client calls, or becoming a digital nomad — you won’t get the best bagels anymore, but you and your team can appear local wherever you are.

Share and manage access to phone numbers

OpenPhone also lets you share access to your New York phone number. You can allow multiple people on your team to call and text from your number and communicate with your team about calls in real-time for better collaboration. This system helps you delegate tasks, communicate over messages, and easily stay on the same page.

Just add your teammates’ email addresses to invite them to share a number. You can also provide employees with unique numbers for their own direct lines.

Look professional to callers

Professionalism can help your business win contracts and trust, especially in New York. OpenPhone’s business phone features are here to help. You can set professional voicemail greetings for after-hours or missed messages and route callers to different team members with phone menus that help them get the help they need faster.

You can also use call forwarding and call recording to serve your customers better. No matter how complicated your organization, OpenPhone makes it easy to appear more professional to prospects and customers from Long Island to Buffalo.

Why your business needs a New York phone number

Welcome to Wall Street. New York is home to several unique industries, and because the stock exchange makes its home in the Big Apple, it makes sense one of the state’s biggest economic drivers is financial services. The industry isn’t just full of traders, either. Industries thriving here include consultants, software, analysts, and homeland/cybersecurity pros.

Fintech and Insuretech businesses find themselves in good company in the Empire State among players like Brex, PolicyGenius, and Zipari.

The world of Fintech can’t thrive without protecting sensitive accounts and assets, so it makes sense cybersecurity would blossom here, too. More generally, security is a growing industry in New York. The state recently approved the country’s first drone corridor between Rome and Syracuse to test 5G drone flights outside the sightline of operators. It’s made the state an attractive headquarters for tech startups from logistics to aerospace and defense.

Want to join them? Some incubators helping launch New York businesses include:

    • TechGarden - Founders in Syracuse can find grants, growth funds, and accelerator programs here. Their cohorts raised $100 million in just one recent year and made $54 million in revenue. They have programs specific to cleantech and autonomous systems.
    • Innovate 518 - An incubator in Albany, this tech hub offers mentorship, coworking space, pitch prep, funding identification, and assistance with business administration.
    • AngelPad - You may be more familiar with the AngelPad San Francisco location, but this top launchpad also operates in New York, a lucky break for city dwellers looking for an incubator experience, complete with four intense weeks of mentorship, education, and progress. Their average company fundraises $11 million.
    • Betaworks Camp - Each four-month camp is intense and focused on a theme, from synthetic reality to audio startups. There are many tech options and some big names, so check out programming around your industry.
