Toll Free Number For Your Small Online Store

Displaying a toll free number is a quick, easy, and surprisingly CHEAP way to add credibility and professionalism to your online store.  I pay only 2$ a month for a toll free 888 number, which is forwarded to my home line.

Kall8.com has a great referral program
I pay an additional 2$ a month so that these calls are "announced".  This means a quick recording is played after someone answers my home phone, indicating the call was made to the toll free number.    And THAT means I know to answer (again) in my "business voice"... and that my husband and kids know to HANG UP!  (During the time of the announcement, the caller hears the line as though it has not been picked up yet, and then hears the voice mail greeting when we hang up on our end.)

The basic 2$ a month includes voice mail, with the messages immediately emailed to me as audio files.(You could choose to call in to listen to your voice mail -- great for on the go business owners). And, an email after every call made (hang ups, completed calls, and voice mails) with all the caller ID info available, typically including the phone number, first and last name of record, and city/state.

I use Kall8.com.   And have been VERY happy with them. 

You my have a smart phone --- but don't forget to use a smart phone number too.
Happy calls!

Its easier and convenient for the customers to reach you for their inquiries. This means more trust and thus more profit.

There are a lot available online, but I'm gonna stick with them. They proven me that they can deliver and maybe the best toll free provider today.

  5. I believe all small business should have toll free numbers. If you are one or two employee company or in business where all your staff is on the road, then you don't really need a business line. Just get a Toll Free number and it will work on top of your staff personal cell phones. When they receive a call, it will indicate that it is a business call on their call display so they can answer it professionally. All your staff can have their own professional voicemail system. You can monitor how many calls are answered and missed. I have been using toll free numbers from freetrialtollfreenumber. Check them out at: Check out Check out Toll Free

    1. Hosted business phone system is an ideal solution for business now. You don't have to worry about installing any software or hardware. However, can have access to all the features large business have. The best part is the price is very affordable. It starts from about $10/month. With this system you don't need a separate business phone line. You can use your personal cell phone or home phone. You will sound as professional as fortune 500 companies. I have been using toll free numbers from tollfreenumbers. I believe they provide the Toll Free Numbers at the best price. They even gurantee to beat any lower price by 10%.
