Work on the move? Take your landline with you with a Pocket Landline

13th June 2018

We’re not actually suggesting you shove your bulky landline handset into your pocket.

Pocket landlines are a great idea for business men and women who find they’re often working on the go and have limited or no office time.  With pocket landline numbers, you’ll get a local landline number that rings directly on your mobile.

Why choose a pocket landline?

Pocket landlines can also enhance the response rate to your advertising campaigns. Landline numbers offer a more professional appearance and suggest to customers that you’re an established business that is based within their local area. Advertising a standard mobile number just doesn’t cut it anymore. Yes they’re practical but they often come across as sloppy and unprofessional.  Pocket landlines offer you the best of both worlds; you can advertise a local phone number and benefit from the portability of an ordinary mobile phone. It’s a no brainer really.

Pocket landlines don’t just benefit the sole trader, if you have a team of people but no office space for them to answer calls, you can simply route your calls from the pocket landline to their mobile phones in the order of your choice. Either as a ’round-robin’, or by percentage: 20% each perhaps.  This will create a call centre like environment but eliminates the need to pay huge rental fees for office space.
