Free Virtual Phone Number for the Entrepreneur
A virtual telephone number or virtual number is a telephone number without being directly-associated with a phone line. Usually these numbers are programmed to be forwarded to either a voice over IP (VoIP – voice over internet protocol) service, or to a different phone line, fixed or mobile. A virtual phone service typically will professionally answer, route, and manage your phone calls. These service provides are typically who you would acquire your virtual phone number from. A virtual office is a combination of off-site live communication and address services that allow users to reduce traditional office costs while maintaining business professionalism. I find that many new entrepreneurs prefer to work out of their house if they do not need to employee to many people or have the need to bring customers or vendors to their place of business. We see more and more of this every day. If your virtual office is at your house, I would recommend using a local mail service company to provide you with a mail box that you can use as your business mailing address rather than your personal home address. If you do not need a live person to always answer your business phone, a virtual phone number from a service company will be a great option for your business.
The entrepreneur / small business owner needs to stay connected their potential and existing customers. When you’re working or not working you need a method track those whether you answer them or not. You want the flexibility to receive those calls when you want to and wherever you want to receive them. The ability to decide on taking those calls or not can be extremely important to you. Today you use a phone line and an answering machine or service to take those calls. You have bills that are associated to those telecommunication expenses. Maybe you have to carry and pay for a separate business cell phone to address the situation. Maybe you pay for both. Sometimes have to pay for conference call center usage when you have to organize a small conference. These are all challenges for the entrepreneur / small business owner.
As we stated above you could be using a business phone line and answering machine or service. The use of a second cell phone could be your current solution. We hope you’re not using your personal cell phone for all your current, previous and potential customers.
A major development that started in 2004 was the introduction of mass-market VoIP services that utilize existing broadband Internet access, by which subscribers place and receive telephone calls in much the same manner as they would via the public switched telephone network (PSTN). Full-service VoIP phone companies provide inbound and outbound service with Direct Inbound Dialing. Many offer unlimited domestic calling for a flat sometimes includes international calls to certain countries. Phone calls between subscribers of the same provider are usually free when flat-fee service is not available. There are tons of companies out there that offer virtual phone numbers and virtual phone service. I few you might have heard of as follows: Phone.com, Voiceshot.com, Evoice.com, Ringcentral.com etc. All of these companies are offer virtual phone numbers and service. Most of them offer tons of features. Some of them can even handle medium sized companies virtually, but all of them have fees associated with their service. Some of them can even get monthly fees under $10 per month, but with very limited features compared to stepped up features with higher pricing. I found that I needed to spend at about $15 per month to get decent services I need as an entrepreneur. And I used these services in the past from one of those companies. I will say their service was great and they supplied me with what I needed. I would have liked a few more features, but I was not willing to pay extra for them at the time. I will say that if you have a small office with more then 3 or 4 people the solution I will be discussing is probably not the best option. I would use one of the other companies I listed. Also if you live outside the United States my solution is not an option at this time.
