Many entrepreneurs who register with the Chamber of Commerce and therefore start their own business use their own mobile number as Business telephone number. However, this is not so smart to do this. If you do this, there is a chance that your business and private life will become intertwined. It is important that you as an entrepreneur watch out for this, since the life of an entrepreneur is often very busy and hectic. Especially when you start as an entrepreneur, it is important that you think carefully about a telephone number. It is important to know that having your own Business number offers you more benefits than a mobile phone number.
Here is your phone number
Having your own Business number is not only important to appear reliable and professional. Such a number is also important for all your promotional material that you use. You may even have your own letterhead and envelopes. All these things often have a telephone number printed on them. When you start as an entrepreneur and have your mobile number printed on it, it is possible that you change your mind at a later time. You may be called by all kinds of customers until the late hours and during the weekends. When you're tired of this, you can't just request another phone number. After all, you also have to have all your promotional material and letters and envelopes adjusted and reprinted.
Your own Business number and suppliers
Having your own Business Number is not only important for your customers. The same applies to any suppliers. Sometimes it is necessary for a supplier to contact you. But when you are enjoying a day off on a lounger, you often do not expect to be harassed on your mobile number for this. In such a situation, your own Business number is therefore important. If you choose to use your mobile number for this and later decide to switch to a Business telephone number, there is a good chance that you will still be harassed on your mobile number.
