Piscataway, NJ (PressExposure) May 18, 2012 -- iTeleCenter sales indicate a rise in companies using local numbers to expand their businesses beyond their home-town borders. Judging from the increase in orders from its inventory of Chicago Phone Numbers, Chicago may be one of the cities companies are targeting for their next growth opportunity.
The key to this ingenious marketing ploy is the use of hosted local numbers. A business chooses a number in a specific city's area code to use with iTeleCenter's virtual phone system. The company advertises the number - in the city or community market they are trying to enter - and when calls come in, they are forwarded to the company's normal business number. This tactic is used by large, small, and home-based businesses across the country. It's an efficient, cost-effective way to increase sales outside of the company's physical geographic location.
iTeleCenter provides interested companies with a list of new Chicago phone numbers. Once a number has been selected, it is made live within minutes. It can then be set up to forward to the company's existing land-line or cell phone. Consumers dial the Chicago number and pay for a local call, while in reality they are connected to wherever the business may be located. For example, a company may have its headquarters in a home located within the Los Angeles 310 area code. A consumer dialing from Chicago may be dialing a number with a 312 area code, but the call will be forwarded to the Los Angeles 310 number.
By establishing a presence within the Chicago area with the help of local phone numbers, businesses are able to effectively expand their target audiences. This expanded audience is further aided by giving the impression of being a large, well established company. The cost of setting up s local number is easily offset when considering the amount saved by not having to establish a physical office in the area. Furthermore, by increasing the available target audience, the chances of selling a product or service are naturally increased multifold. This results in increasing profits and allowing the company to grow substantially.
