If you’ve always had the ambition to start up a new business but didn’t know when, there’s no better time to start than in the New Year.

In 2015, more than 600,000 new businesses were set up in the UK.  The previous year’s figure was 500,000. Every year increasingly more people are setting out on a new business adventure.

Competition can be strong due to the volume of new businesses starting each year, so it can be daunting at first, but don’t let that put you off achieving your goals. With Planet Numbers we can help you get off on the best start for your new business. Many people underestimate the power of a telephone number, but it really does make a difference to how you are perceived by the public.

Memorable Numbers

A memorable business phone number can offer a huge advantage if you want to get ahead of all the new start-ups companies. Securing a memorable number can be key to your success, because if more people can easily remember your phone number you are bound to do more business.

Special numbers can also provide your new company with a professional image. Customers will make that judgement whether to contact you based on how your business is being presented as well as your reputation.

0800 Freephone Numbers

Promoting an 0800 numbers will give your business an edge over your competition because they are completely free for people to call. Customers will be more inclined to make their enquiry to your company when they’re interested in your product or service, as they know it won’t cost them anything to check out.

Research has shown that 90% of people trust and recognise 0800 numbers as a free to call number and that by advertising an 0800 number, response rates will increase by as much as 185%.

With an 0800 number it can make your business appear like it’s a much bigger enterprise with its national reach. Customers will be more willing to a call a company that seems larger because they will think that the business is doing well and it has been going on for a long time.

Telephone Answering Service

It’s a well known fact that people rarely leave voicemail messages when calling to enquire about your businesses product or services and may not call back at all if your phone line is busy or unanswered. So you could be missing out on important sales and customers, which when starting a new business is really key.

At Planet Numbers, we offer a professional call answering service for when you are busy and unavailable to respond.  Your calls can be delivered to us where we will answer your business’ phone calls in your company’s name.
