What is a local business number?

A local number is a business phone number that starts with an area code associated with a particular region, city, or state. When you’re rocking a local number, it’s like hanging a “Support Your Local Business” sign on your virtual door. Customers dig that hometown vibe, showing them you’re not just in the community. You’re part of it.

Why should you get a local number?

Using a local number feels like your business just moved into the neighborhood, put up a ‘Welcome’ sign, and started shaking hands with everyone in town. It’s all about being part of the community and giving customers a friendly, neighborly vibe. 

When you snag a local phone number, you tell folks in that specific area code, “Hey, we’re right here with you.” Whether you’re rocking a physical storefront in that town or just want to get in on the local scene from afar, a local phone number plants your flag on the map.

9. How does a local number differ from an 800 number?

A local number gives you a specific regional presence, while 800 numbers are nationwide. Toll free numbers are also free to call, but that is less of a selling point because most folks these days call from cell phones with unlimited minutes.

10. Can I have both a local and toll free number?

You sure can! Mix and match to fit your business needs. With Unitel, local and toll free phone numbers work the same way. Every plan includes one number for free. Then, you can add additional numbers for $4.99/number per month.

Easily manage and improve your customer service experience using Unitel’s call management features like call routing, team presence, and call recording.

No worries, your Unitel local number moves with you and can be managed from anywhere. You can also add a new local number to your account anytime.

14. Can I customize my local number with vanity options?

Vanity options are available if you want to add flair to your number. But, because local numbers have fewer options, you might consider getting a vanity toll free number because there’s a bigger spare pool of numbers to choose from.

15. Are there any long-term contracts for local numbers?

No long-term contracts here. We believe in flexibility to suit your business needs.

16. Can my local number handle multiple simultaneous calls?

Yes, our local numbers can handle multiple calls simultaneously without a hitch.

17. How do local numbers affect SEO and local search rankings?

When customers search for services or products in your area, having a local number can help your business rank higher in local search results. You reinforce your business’s presence in that area by using a local number corresponding to a specific region, city, or state. Search engines often factor in location-based information, like a local phone number, when determining relevance for local search queries.

18. What happens to my local number if I cancel my Unitel service?

If you decide to cancel, we provide a grace period to port your number elsewhere. Specific details are available in our cancellation policy. You own your number with Unitel and can port it to another provider anytime.
