When choosing a phone number for your business, you must decide whether you want to go with a Freephone, non-geographic, or local 01/02 number. Depending on where you’re located and what you do, a local number may be the best option.
So, what is a local number? The areas where you live and work have their own unique area codes. That’s why the local pizza restaurant’s number starts with the same digits as your home line. When people see a 0161 number, they can identify that the caller is from Manchester.
Why use a local number?
If you’re running a business that depends upon users who live in the area, then you may want to choose a local number. Here’s why:
- Local numbers identify your location. Certain area codes make it obvious where your business is based, which can be important depending on what you sell.
- Customers prefer them. Most customers in the UK prefer to call a business that is local to them. A local business number can even appear more down to earth, especially compared to a freephone number that implies a national, less personal focus. People have a lot of pride in where they live and work, and often love other sentimental locations.
- Expand your business. With Grasshopper, you are not limited to one number for your business. Grow your business with multiple local numbers in different territories to attract new customers.
- Low cost calls. Local numbers cost the same to call as a landline, making them free with your inclusive minutes.
- Available for any city. Grasshopper offers an extensive range of 01 and 02 area codes in cities across the UK.
What are the most well-known area codes?
People from different cities might argue that their area code is the most identifiable, but here are some area codes attributed to certain U.K. cities.
- London – 0203
- London – 0208
- London – 0207
- Manchester – 0161
- Liverpool – 0151
- Birmingham – 0121
- Leeds – 0113
What other features do they come with?
The number alone is great, but other features can make it better. Many providers will have additional features such as:
- Call forwarding – forward calls to a landline or mobile. multiple extensions are available to ensure that calls can be forwarded to each employee.
- Virtual Receptionist Services – all of the benefits of a live receptionist at a fraction of the cost.
- Voicemail & Voicemail Transcription – receive recorded messages and read them via email.
