Can an Edinburgh virtual city number help you?

Virtual city numbers can be an essential tool for businesses of all sizes looking to increase customer engagement – thanks to their myriad of benefits with minimal monthly cost and output. These benefits include:

  1. Testing expansion locations before investing

Expanding into new cities or regions can be a balance of risk and reward.

Before you invest in costly infrastructure like premises, stock, and staff, you can use a 0131 phone number to ensure you have a potential customer pool in place, ready to welcome and shop with you once your doors open.

The custom that you can gain with your virtual city number can allow you to hit the ground running and fund your expansion. And if it turns out that Edinburgh isn’t the city for you, then you’ve saved thousands that you can invest in an alternative area.

In this way, an 0131 number can bring certainty to periods of risk and keep your customers satisfied at the same time – the definition of a win-win.


  1. Affordable phone communication for all

As price points become more competitive, some customers are turning to businesses that implement more economical communication techniques – like free or local numbers.

Local numbers are more affordable and can be included in minute packages for many mobile providers, making customers increasingly likely to call them if they need answers to questions or are interested in placing an order.

Local numbers are also more trustworthy than numbers associated with external cities, making it more likely that customers will take your call.

Choosing an 0131 phone number allows businesses to increase the chances of communication in one, inexpensive move.
