In our experience, and especially regarding smaller law firms and sole practitioners, there are certain telephone must-haves that enable you to:
- Control your telephone number
- Answer the phone in multiple places
- Dial from your office number through your cell phone
For instance: I have spoken to more than a few attorneys whose phone numbers belong to the building their office resides in. To this, I always ask them a few things:
- Do you advertise that telephone number for your business?
- Do you own that telephone number?
- If you were to leave that office today, could you take that number with you?
One could easily see where I am headed with this. Your phone number that you advertise is essential to your business! Repeat customers, referrals, and existing clients alike all rely on that number for your help! If you had to change that number for any reason and start advertising and collecting goodwill on a new phone number, it would take a long time to build all of your hard work back up!
We suggest using a VOIP, (Voice Over IP) because of its robust nature in mobility, control, call forward manipulation, and sophistication in mobile applications.
For example: one of the features of Vonage Business Solutions is that their mobile application lets you dial and make phone calls using your business number, right on your cell phone! This keeps your private cell phone just that – private! While also allowing you to become completely mobile. Of course, it allows you to receive calls from your business number through the app, and can be easily switched to not ring your cell phone when you need some privacy.
With Ring Savvy and Vonage Business Solutions, you are guaranteed to never miss another call! No calls sent to voicemail will exert the indifference that new callers perceive, and every caller will be greeted by a live, professional virtual receptionist who serves as an extension of your business! You can also take your phone number with you, wherever you go! Vonage desk phones are easily plugged into Ethernet cables and activated immediately.
With your new mobility and phone versatility, call Ring Savvy to ensure that you never miss the new customer! Our live answering service is 24/7/365, ensuring that every single one of your calls gets answered promptly, and according to how you have pre-determined.
