iTeleCenter has just announced that a new batch of Chicago phone numbers has been made available for business use. By obtaining Chicago phone numbers through iTeleCenter, businesses are able to establish a presence within the Chicago area without having to physically move into the area or establish an additional office there.
What Does This Mean to Businesses?
Essentially, many small businesses find it difficult to break into the Chicago market due to the fact that consumers prefer to deal with local companies. By providing Chicago phone numbers, businesses can access this market without consumers having to make long distance calls. Because iTeleCenter also offers business the option to provide extensions, smaller, perhaps home based companies can also give the impression of being large, established companies. This also makes it more likely for consumers to approach them.
How Does it Work?
iTelecenter provides interested companies with a list of new Chicago phone numbers. Once a number has been selected, it is made live within minutes. It can then be set up to forward to the company's existing land-line or cell phone. Consumers dial the Chicago number and pay for a local call, while in reality they are connected to wherever the business may be located. For example, a company may have its headquarters in a home located within the Los Angeles area code 310. A consumer dialing from Chicago may be dialling a number with the area code 312 and paying for a local call, but the call will be forwarded to the Los Angeles 310 number.
Businesses can not only have calls forwarded to their phone from Chicago Phone numbers and program extensions, they are also able to take advantage of a range of additional services. These services include call screening, call answering, call forwarding, auto hold, on-hold music, auto attendants, message alerts, call capture, call reports and custom messages, as well as multiple voicemail boxes, missed call notifications and more.
How to Manage the Virtual Phone System
The virtual phone system making all this possible can be managed by business owners either simply via their phone or online. Either way, they will have total control and ensure that their calls will never again be missed or remain unanswered. The messaging system included ensures that a business owner or representative is always aware of who is trying to get in touch with them, when, from where and why.
Advantages of Having Chicago Phone Numbers
By establishing a presence within the Chicago area with the help of local phone numbers, businesses are able to effectively expand their target audiences. This expanded audience is further aided by giving the impression of being a large, well established company. The cost of setting up Chicago phone numbers is easily offset when considering the amount saved by not having to establish a physical office in the area. Furthermore, by increasing the available target audience, the chances of selling a product or service are naturally increased multifold. This results in increasing profits and allowing the company to grow substantially.
Now that there are new Chicago phone numbers being released, it’s imperative to get your company set up as soon as possible. Select a Chicago number before this batch has been scooped up by companies taking advantage of the opportunity to expand their audience and their profits.
