Keeping your work and personal life separate is difficult when you run a small business. As the go-to problem solver, you probably get a lot of calls off-hours, which, needless to say, can get pretty frustrating. And sometimes, a little embarrassing.

Separate your work and personal calls by adding a business line to your personal smartphone

Modern smartphones can easily accommodate multiple phone numbers.

Adding a business line to your mobile phone:

  • Gives you the flexibility of working from anywhere.
  • Limits when you give out your personal phone number.
  • Allows you see who is calling and lets you screen calls.

Factors to consider when adding a business line

Of course, you’ve always got choices — from free business phone services to VoIP systems. If you’re looking to add a business line, factors you’ll want to consider as you weigh your options include:

  • Cost. Just don’t sacrifice quality of service for price.
  • Features. Do you need caller ID? Business hours? Voicemail transcription? Auto attendant?
  • Ease of use. You’re busy. How much time do you want to spend figuring out how to install and use a second business line?
  • Domestic vs. international. Do you need to make international calls?
  • Land line. Do you also need to add a business line to a landline?
  • Technical support. Is quality support available 24/7 if you need help?

One mobile phone, two numbers

By adding a business line to your smartphone, you can keep your personal calls and business calls separate — without having to buy a new device. It’s a quick, affordable way to up the professional ante for your business.
