List Your Business Mobile Number in 411 Listings to Reach More Customers

Today, more and more businesses are on the move and rely heavily on their cell phone to stay in contact with customers, generate leads, and grow their revenues. 


In fact, a growing number of small business owners use only their mobile phone as their business phone.  However, if your mobile phone is not listed, a customer seeking the services that your business can provide won’t be able to find your number by looking in the phonebook or calling 411.


Making it easy for existing and potential customers to find your business is one of the keys to success and growth.


So, get your business’ cell phone number listed in Verizon’s local business pages directories and 411 directory assistance.  Additionally, you can pick the directory and community areas that best match the service areas and needs of your business.


Setting up a new listing in a Verizon directory can be done – all online – in easy steps at  The price of a listing varies by state and can range from $1.15 to slightly under $5 per month, making it a highly cost-effective way for a small business to be found by local consumers.   


So what are you waiting for?  Get an edge on your competition now by listing your mobile phone number and keep your phone ringing which will help to expand your business.  Don’t lose out to the competitors whose business 411 information can be easily found.


If you have already listed your mobile number, let me know how it has worked out for your business.Wireless-List-1.jpg



It’s Time to Give Your Business A ‘Tune-Up’

Employee Emeritus Employee Emeritus ‎04-19-2011 11:39 AM

car.jpgJust like a car needs a tune up every so often, your business needs one too.  If you’re in business, it’s a good idea to review your business plans quarterly.  Perhaps it’s changing the layout of your retail shop or updating your menu.  With each quarterly review, it’s also a good time to review your business’ telecommunications service and determine if you have the right services.  Do you need faster broadband speeds?  Do you need more phone lines?  Perhaps your dental office could use TV service?  Or perhaps it’s finally time to get a website for your business?


If you are looking to upgrade your current services or shopping for new services, consider Verizon.  We offer many products and services for businesses of all sizes.  Any of our services can be purchased in a bundle or individually, with or without a term agreement.


For Verizon’s small business bundled customers who are growing and seeking to add four phone lines or more, the company is now offering even greater savings starting on your 4th featured (qualified) line.


Many small businesses need additional phone lines to handle the credit card machine, alarm systems, a dedicated line for the fax machine and to keep the main business line clear to capture all incoming calls.  The savings can be substantial from $8 in savings to $10 or more per line – and of course, bundled customers save a whole lot more than those who choose a la carte services.telecom.jpg


For businesses that don’t need to add more phone lines, but are interested in shopping for broadband services…Verizon’s latest online exclusive promotion for these businesses that subscribe to our FiOS Internet or High Speed Internet service is a free activation – a value of $149.99 – and $5 off per month for 24 months with a 2-year commitment. 


A note that all of Verizon’s business bundled services include the business essentials (businesses can select 2-year term or no-term (month-to-month) options): online security; online backup; an easy do-it-yourself website design software; Google Apps; complimentary Wi-Fi and more.  Bundled services ordered online will get $10 off per month for 24 months with a 2-year commitment.  For additional information visit


Let us know if you bundled your telecommunications services.
