Target new geographical areas for your business with these tips

Once you are confident and secure in your business’ position and size, expansion is an important part of your business’ life cycle. When you look to expand your business from a starting point of stability it can be hard to know how to go about this, but one safe bet is to look at a geographical area which you have not tapped into yet. London is of course the largest city in Britain, but it is also one of the richest cities in the world, and one of the only megalopolises, cities of over ten million, in Europe. It is therefore a city of prestige, and there are great advantages to be gained by having a phone number which reflects this prestige.

Central London Phone Codes

0208 is the phone code for central London and brings with it a certain sense of importance to those in the know. This is largely due to the implication of being able to afford an office in central London. The office rents in central London are incredibly high currently, and two years ago stood as the most expensive in Europe. Despite a great deal of growing Brexit uncertainty, office space can still be found to be prohibitively expensive.

However, if you want the prestige of a central London office phone line without having to pay extortionate amounts, you can get 0208 numbers from companies like Planet Numbers. This can offer the freedom to run your business from a more convenient and affordable location while having the advantage of a 0208 number. If there are any doubts about the logistics of this method you may be put at ease. If you buy a virtual 0208 number the 0208 part will redirect immediately to your chosen phone, ensuring that you do not lose your calls to find them redirected to another number.

Virtual 0208 Numbers

Virtual 0208 numbers also have the advantage that if you move office you can redirect the calls to your new office number, as they were already being redirected before. The virtual 0208 number also has a number of options for call interception and different ways to handle incoming calls. If for example you have multiple different staff members set up across different parts of the week to do the same job at different points the phone call can be redirected without the caller noticing to a phone number of your choice. This also gives the choice of allowing the phone to redirect calls at certain times. For example, you might choose to have calls redirected to your mobile while you are away from the office in the evening and over the weekend, or to a specific answering machine.

A series of options to direct the caller to the right department can also be offered comparatively easily and can save a lot of time for the caller and ensure that they get to the part of your company they need as efficiently as possible.

While office property continues to rise in price across the capitals of Europe, having the freedom to have a prestigious phone number while avoiding extortionate rents can help your business rise to any occasion.
