I don’t get this whole Virtual Phone Number thing
Why would my business need that?
A virtual phone number is nothing else than your regular telephone number. Yet, instead of using a standard PBX system, it uses a Virtual Phone system. Such telephone numbers are not directly associated with a telephone line and are often referred to as the DID number or an access number.
The reason why you’d want to use virtual phone numbers is that you can program them to forward incoming calls to other numbers. For example, you could answer business calls using your personal phone number without showing it to keep it private. Alternatively, you could use a virtual phone number as a regular, additional phone number to represent your business. Also, virtual phone numbers offer a full variety of telephone numbers. You can choose from toll-free, vanity, 800, and local phone numbers and thus offer your customers the best way to contact your business.Get started for free Improve your business
