Business Phone/Fax/411

Lesson Summary


I can’t stress enough how the perception lenders, vendors, and creditors have of your business is crucial to your ability to build strong business credit reports. 

This perception is why it’s highly recommended that your business has a separate business phone number. A toll free number is best. Why?

Well, one reason, providing a cell or home phone number as your main business phone line could get you “flagged” as an un-established business that is too high of a risk.

It’s also crucial for your number to be listed with 411 and online directories along with having a dedicated fax number. 

What is 411?

411 directory assistance is a service that helps people access caller information via a list or database of phone numbers or other contact information — and is a qualifying factor some banks use to get your business approved for business credit.

 If you set up a Virtual Office Solution it will include a business phone number and a 411 listing.
