What Is a Local Phone Number?

A local phone is a number that is assigned to a particular town, region, or state. These numbers can be recognized by their local area code. When you place a call, the recipient will be able to recognize your caller ID based on this three-digit prefix. Using a local area code is a handy way of establishing a local presence for your business, even if your company isn’t physically based in the area. 

Local number portability (LNP) and full mobile number portability (FMNP) allow you to preserve your current phone number that was given to you by a local exchange carrier even if you change service providers (LEC).

Local Numbers Availability

When you buy local numbers for your business, it’s important to consider the area code and prefix that best suits your needs. Depending on the location of your business and target audience, certain area codes may be more desirable than others. For example, a business located in New York City may want a phone number with the 212 area code, as it is widely recognized as a New York City number. However, finding a specific area code or prefix can be challenging, as many numbers have already been assigned.

Fortunately, reputable providers like MightyCall have access to a wide range of local numbers, including hard-to-find area codes and prefixes. With our extensive network and partnerships, we can offer a range of options to our customers, ensuring that they can find a local number that meets their specific needs. Additionally, our easy-to-use search tool makes it simple to find and purchase a local number, giving you a fast and efficient way to get the number you want for your business.

How does a Local Number Work for Business?

Expand to a different market

You can become a local in any market by getting a number with that area code. This will increase the trust of the customers in that area, making you appear as if you were a part of their community.

Complete your branding

If you are a local business, having a number from your town will complete your image as a local brand. In this case, it is not about expansion but about growing roots that go even deeper into the local soil.

Add extra options for your callers

Let your callers select whether they want to contact a local area code or a toll-free number, a vanity number. Your contact directory will look more complete with numerous phone numbers listed.

Separate your departments

If you have departments in different cities, it makes sense to have each represented locally, so the callers can contact the office nearest to them. You can also have a few local telephone numbers from the same area.

How Do Local Phone Numbers Work?

As far as clients are concerned, local phone numbers for business work in just the same way as other numbers. All they have to do is dial your business number and call you. There is no special procedure customers have to follow to call a business number in a specific location.
Businesses can buy a local phone number in thousands of towns across the globe. They do not need to be physically based in that area for the number to work. All they have to do is purchase one. Then, they will have a number with the corresponding area code.

Difference Between Local and Toll-Free Numbers

The main difference between local and toll-free phone numbers is that the former is tied to a particular geographic region while the latter is not. A local number features a 3-digit area code belonging to your chosen town, region, or state. Toll-free numbers, on the other hand, do not make your business’ location known to the caller.

Another difference is that, with toll-free numbers, the business pays for both outgoing and incoming calls while the caller pays nothing. When you use a local area code, customers will have to pay to call you.

Many businesses decide to purchase both types of numbers to go nationwide and penetrate local markets at the same time. They serve different purposes and both have their own individual benefits. A toll-free number would be the more expensive option for larger companies that are planning to expand.

Benefits Of Using Local Business Numbers

Be closer to your customers

Having your phone number show as local on your customers’ phones will make them feel like you are close to them. Local businesses are typically considered to be more trustworthy by Americans and Canadians. Being local means you have accountability and a personal relationship with the community, which will add to your brand reliability.

Get featured in the local directories

Being local makes you eligible for local directory mentions. When the locals are looking for a service they can trust, they are likely to review the local directories and maps. Having this option will increase your brand’s visibility.

Participate in local advertising campaigns

It would look much more natural for a number from Savannah, Georgia, to be displayed on a local billboard than a number from Nashville or Anchorage. A number from outside would look like a foreign element, while a local area code would seem organic.

Benefit from general VoIP features

A VoIP provider’s local area code will give you access to audio transcription, caller ID, a custom greeting, business hours call routing, an auto receptionist, a multi-level IVR, and other features. It will also be a cheaper option compared to the traditional alternatives.

How You Can Use Your Local Business Phone Number

  • Call forwarding: With call forwarding, you can make sure that phone calls are directed to the appropriate member of staff. If a customer calls with an issue that you cannot solve, you can reroute the call to a team member who can.
  • Auto-attendant: This feature presents customers with a pre-recorded menu. They can choose whichever option is best suited to their situation, and will then be put through to the appropriate team member.
  • Voicemail: Voicemail functionality is essential for any business phone number. Some cloud business phone system providers include voicemail transcription services. Messages are automatically transcribed and sent to your email address.
  • Texting: This is especially useful if you have customers who are deaf or hard of hearing or who prefer to use SMS for any other reason.
  • Manage calls: Streamlined UI makes using your local area code easy.
  • Call recording: Some providers offer call recording features with a local phone number. This is a useful feature for compliance, customer service, and training.

Are There Any Downsides to Local Phone Numbers?

Having a local area code does have a few downsides:

  • Your location will be known to callers, leaving a window open for bias
  • You will not be able to customize it to make it look on brand
  • Your credibility will be affected
  • Your clients will be charged for calling you

If these downsides are significant for you, MightyCall offers multiple phone numbers with every plan, allowing you to mix-and-match the numbers or go completely toll-free.

What Is Required for the Implementation of Local Phone Number, Including Equipment?

You won’t need much, really. The bare minimum would be:

  • A device that connects to the internet and can be used for calling. It can be a computer, a tablet, a mobile phone, or a softphone.
  • The best possible internet connection. Utilizing a speed of less than 100kbps is not something we advise, the higher it is, the better your call quality will be.
  • A VoIP provider. Without using a VoIP service, you cannot have a number that is accessible via the internet.
  • A web client/app to make calls from. This can be a web browser or a desktop app, not just a mobile app. It would typically be provided by your VoIP service.

There are some additional things you may need:

  • An earpiece with a microphone. Although a headset is not required, you can benefit from better audio quality and free up both hands if you use one.
  • An adaptor for VoIP. Analog audio streams are converted into digital IP packets by VoIP adapters. A VoIP adapter is necessary for all virtual 800 toll-free lines to function.

Local Business Numbers Outside the US and Canada

As well as providing our US and Canadian customers with local business phone number services, we also offer international local phone numbers for business. These are ideal for businesses that are looking to expand overseas sometime in the near future.

Is It Possible to Have More Than One Local Business Number?

You can get multiple local numbers in quantities more than one. This is especially useful if you’re looking to expand your business and want to establish a presence in multiple towns or regions. The limit is fairly hard to reach; it would depend on your provider. MightyCall will definitely be able to help you. Feel free to ask us for help setting up your second phone number if you’re unsure of the process.

Can I Get a Local Phone Number in Any Area Code?

Yes, you can get a local phone number from almost any area. You will need to select the provider and plan that you like and find suitable for your business. Here are a few steps:

  1. Focus on the features you need and the budget you have;
  2. Perform market research and study the available options;
  3. Check whether the provider has the desired area code;
  4. Buy the local telephone number you like.

That’s it, you have the local business number that you can use.

How Much Does a Local Phone Cost?

The cost of a local business number will depend on the provider and plan you choose. It can even be free, although a free provider will not have as much responsibility for the quality and security of your calls. The cheaper providers start at around $9 USD per month and the more expensive ones will be hundreds of dollars.

So Local Numbers?

If you want to benefit from a local market, a local business number is a must. You will gain trust of the local community and develop a stronger relationship with your customers, as well as have a higher conversion rate as a result. One thing is certain: it is definitely worth a try.
