Can a Belfast virtual city number help you?

Virtual city numbers can be an essential tool for increasing customer engagement, thanks to their myriad of benefits with minimal cost and output. These benefits include:

  1. Testing expansion locations before investing

If you are looking into possible expansion sites, especially in a new city, it’s a balance of risk and reward.

Before you invest in infrastructure like premises, stock, and staff, you can use an 028 phone number to ensure you have a potential customer pool in place, who are ready to welcome you.

If all goes well, the custom that you gain in the meantime can fund your expansion and if Belfast isn’t the city for you, then you’ve saved thousands that you can invest in an alternative area.

In this way, an 028 number can bring certainty to periods of risk and keep your customers satisfied – what other business tools can promise that?

  1. Phone communication for all

There seems to be many ways to contact businesses nowadays, including:

  • Social media
  • Text
  • Email
  • Webchat

According to a study conducted by Business Wire, however, more than 12,000 consumers and 2,000 businesses ranked the phone call No. 1 for remote interactions, beating out innovations like text, email, video calls, and chatbots!

This is supported by marketing giant HubSpot, which also found that 69% of its customers prefer to use phone support over any other medium (including webchat and email).

These findings, coupled with an increasing technological skill gap, means that prioritising an 028 phone number allows canny businesses to capture the so-called Grey Pound – or business from the older generations.
