Advertise a local or national number

Our FREE divert number service is a great solution for people who would like to advertise a local or national telephone number – but have it diverted to an existing phone number to answer at your home, office or when you’re on the move on your mobile.

It’s just like having a business line for your mobile – as inbound calls to your divert number will forward calls to up to 10 UK landlines or mobiles phones.

Quickly get a telephone number up and running with instant online activation, NO upfront costs, NO monthly charges, NO contract, NO card details needed, FREE trial credit and LOW call forwarding rates.

If you prefer to be in more control of your costs, why not add an UNLIMITED call forwarding bundle onto your new number. This will then cover all of your UK forwarded calls – either to your UK landline or UK mobile. If you get either a 01,02,03 or 0843 number then the unlimited bundle is just £10 per month, and if you have an 0800 number then the bundle costs just £20 per month. You can add your bundle onto your number via the online portal once you have activated your account.

Sometimes advertising a mobile number or home phone number as your business number just doesn’t look good. It can leave you looking semi professional and put off potential new customers. A local or national phone number can really improve the feel of your business and also means you don’t have to expose your personal mobile number.

A lot of businesses also choose to set up lots of different divert numbers for multiple geographical areas to suggest a presence in other local towns – expanding their potential customer base instantly.

You can even make outbound calls using your new Number people number as your outbound caller ID. This is available with our VoIP/SIP extensions, which also allow you to receive calls with no call forwarding costs! You can find out more about this outbound calling service here
