Assembling a productive and efficient team can be challenging. With the growth of remote teams and online workplaces, creating a professional business appearance can be a tricky endeavor. Having said that, one way to do this is by giving everyone on your team their own unique phone number. In our blog from February, we noted that “when you use a virtual line as a second phone number, you can make and receive calls, send and receive texts, on one mobile phone without having to reveal your main phone number.” This is “ideal if you want to separate your work and personal life without having to use a second physical phone.” In doing so, you are able to select the area code of your unique phone number so your business can appear more professional.
In this article, we cover:
- The importance of everyone on your team having their own number
- How to get everyone their own phone number
- What unique phone numbers can do for your business
The importance of everyone on your team having their own number
Giving everyone on your team their own number provides your business with a number of benefits. Our aforementioned blog noted that you need a dedicated second phone number if
- you want to separate work and personal conversations on one phone
- you want to keep your personal number private
- you don’t want to carry two phones
- you want to answer work calls professionally when you’re not available
You can also start looking after your work-life balance. The Another Number app comes with a built-in switchboard, allowing you to professionally silence, with dedicated greetings, incoming work calls and texts during meetings, your free time, days off and holidays.
