Using a local East of England area code phone number can be advantageous for businesses because it can help them establish a local presence and increase trust with customers who prefer to do business with local companies. Additionally, customers are more likely to answer calls from a East of England number as they are more familiar with the area code.
Customers tend to be more familiar with the local area code and may assume that the business is located in East of England. This can create a sense of trust and familiarity as customers may feel more comfortable doing business with a company that is geographically close to them.
In addition, local phone numbers may be seen as more legitimate and trustworthy than toll-free or non-geographic phone numbers, which are often associated with telemarketing and scams. Customers may be more likely to answer calls from East of England numbers because they are less likely to be spam or unwanted calls.
Businesses can use virtual phone numbers to appear more local by obtaining a virtual number with a East of England area code.
