Why having a landline number is important for small business websites
I have my mobile, why do I need a landline?
Business owners, especially in their first few years of a new business, use their mobile phone number on their website. It's often perceived as the most efficient way to get clients to contact you, however it is sending the wrong message.
Having only a mobile number can give the wrong impression to website visitors and can cause a loss of earnings due to this. The perception that it can give is that you are just a one-man band, which you might be, but its always better to look more professional.
Having a landline phone number on your website may help convey the message that you’re serious about your business.
Landline numbers make you look more professional
Although you might be really good at what you do, and run a professional business, simply not having a landline number will give the wrong impression to larger businesses who might want to do work with you.
A lot of companies can now use virtual landline phone numbers, which can either be managed on your mobile or computer or it can simply forward any calls to you number, including mobile. We've had great success with our clients who have opted for this setup and have seen it boost trust in their incoming calls.
