Want to Look Local?

Want to look local?

In previous blogs we've written about how ill advised it is to have a mobile number as your point of contact if you want to be taken seriously as a business. What we said was that doing this gave the wrong impression and that only having a mobile number allows your prospective customer to think that you're a one-man band working out of a van. By association that makes you someone of no fixed office address who will disappear half way through a job having stolen the TV. It's not necessarily true, of course, but that's how perception works, and perception is invariably based on the truths, half-truths and complete fables that form part of life's experience.

Which brings us to another perception. That it's better, safer and altogether preferable to deal with and buy from a local company rather than one miles away, or a national. It's not true, because you're just as likely to get great service and a competitive price from a national as you are from someone down the road...but you can't beat perception...

Or can you? The answer is that you can, by advertising your presence with a local number. Work with TP Tele and you can be based anywhere in the UK but with a local number for the area codes that you want to work in. What's more when you answer a call we will let you know where the incoming call originates, making it easy to be local wherever you want to be.
