Why Make Calls Using The Mobile Landline Number?

  • 71% were unlikely or would not answer a call from a withheld or unfamiliar number.
  • 75% said they would or were more likely to answer a call from a local geographic number.

By overwriting or masking your mobile or home number with your business number as your caller ID, you are more likely to be answered. It is a more trusted number and hopefully familiar to those new or prospective clients that you are calling.

If you are setting up a Smart Number for your incoming calls, taking advantage of our incoming call management products, presenting your Mobile Landline will keep calls coming in to your main/managed business numbers rather than on a private mobile, which could be turned off, out of signal or just not a convenient time to talk.
