Targeting your customers in Vermont is easiest with a local business phone number. Here are a few great reasons why having a Vermont phone number pays off:

Gain trust with an 802 Vermont area code

Local loyalty starts with a local presence. And in Vermont, the state’s sole area code confers native status. Whether they’re from Randolph, Springfield, or Rutland, Vermonters share a common homeland. They’re more likely to trust a local company over a large, global corporation. They’re also more likely to answer local calls.

Looking for more virtual phone numbers? OpenPhone can add numbers from all over the U.S., Canada, and toll-free numbers from North America.

Vermont phone numbers work anywhere

With a business VoIP telephone number, you just need a WiFi connection to make and receive calls and messages. That makes it convenient to serve customers from outside the Green Mountain State (i.e. flatlanders). You can travel or work remotely and still call and text from a Vermont business phone number. Way up in Newport or over the border in Canada, you still appear local.

Share your Vermont phone number with a team

With OpenPhone, you can share and restrict phone system access easily with a virtual platform that everyone on the team can use. It keeps your contacts synced and lets you collaborate about messages and clients, all in the same place. When you invite team members, you can hand off after-hours calls and expand your service or use the same number at the same time. You can even silence your own cell phone in the evenings.

When you need to give team members their own direct lines, that’s easy, too. Just add as many unique phone numbers as needed within the same platform (customers will be able to move between them with phone menus).

Always look professional

OpenPhone gives you powerful business features that let you look professional wherever you are. Set a custom incoming caller ID to reflect your business, add custom greetings for different voicemail needs, like after-hours calls or missed calls, or use call recording to train your sales or customer service teams. Call forwarding is also simple as drizzling maple syrup on your ice cream — just select any OpenPhone number and input the US or Canadian number where you want your calls to go. You can forward to other Vermont numbers, or to a phone number in New Hampshire, New York, or any other state just as easily. You can turn it off just as fast.

Why your business needs a Vermont phone number

Vermont’s forested location and reputation for maple syrup don’t lie: it’s the top syrup producer in the country, and agriculture is strong in related industries, including apples, lumber, hay, and turkeys. Vermont saw its first winery in 1985, but now the state boasts 14, like Boyden Valley Winery in Cambridge and Whaleback Vinyard in Poultney.

Microbreweries and cider production are expanding as well, all on the heels of a solid agriculture sector.

Tourists also enjoy the solitude of the woods — visitors help contribute locally to Vermont’s $13.4 million per year tourism industry, including hotels, resorts, and retail. Outdoor recreation like ice fishing, skiing in Stowe, summer camps, and hunting is crucial for attracting more tourists (and keeping locals in shape, too).

Yet Vermont’s industry isn’t all centered on its unique geography. There’s a booming manufacturing base, spurred on by big employers like IBM and homegrown players like Darn Tough Vermont. Looking to join the echelons of profitable industries in this New England state? You’re already in good company.

And there’s plenty of support for new businesses through incubator and accelerator programs:

    • LaunchVT - This holistic startup program helps hone pitches and make connections for eight promising startups each session, providing peer sessions, coaching, workshops, and professional services.
    • DeltaClimeVT - Each accelerator cohort focuses on a thematic area with each session (energy technology is popular) and multiple sprints, mentoring sessions, and ultimately, a $25,000 award for one peer-selected company.
    • Instig8 - For this Southern Vermont program, there’s coworking space in Brattleboro, along with business services for members. Plus, an accelerator program, pitch events, and webinar training to get new companies launched and funded successfully.
    • VCET - Members get coworking space on the UVM campus, in Burlington, or in Middlebury locations. Along with university resources, business mentoring, economic development, and funding partners have helped boost their 50 portfolio companies to $133 million in revenue.
