Are you one of the many professionals who juggles two mobile devices for your work and personal life? Keeping up with both can be a nuisance. You have to keep them charged, lug both around, and of course, answer calls, texts and emails on both.
However, with the need for a second number, it can be easy to assume this is the only way to keep your personal and business conversations separate. Luckily, that’s no longer the case. If you’re tired of having two phones, it’s time to consider a mobile phone app for your business.
With this app, you can have two numbers on one phone. Now, you can give out a business phone number, but answer calls and texts on your personal device.
Here are some tips for using an app specifically designed for business owners with two numbers.
Manage of All Your Messages in One Pane
According to HubSpot research, salespeople spend about one-third of their day talking to prospects. In an eight-hour work day, that comes out to just over two-and-a-half hours. Between voicemails, texts, messaging platforms, and emails, the number of ways that prospects get in touch with you will only continue to grow. Trying to keep up with all the messages can feel overwhelming.
Wouldn’t it be nice if an app gathered all your incoming messages in one place? Ninja Number’s mobile app combines both voicemails and texts into one window within the app. You don’t even have to listen to your voicemails. Ninja Number technology transcribes all your voicemails so you can easily read them on the go.
Keep Your Personal and Business Texts Separate
Sometimes sending a client, prospect, or colleague a text message is faster and easier than typing up an email or using your company’s messaging platform. The dilemma comes with the fact that your text messages on your personal device can become intermingled with business conversations.
What if you accidentally send a personal message to a client, or send a classified, business-related text to a friend? With the tap of a finger, private information can accidentally be shared—something that can’t be undone.
This is where a mobile phone app comes in to play. Within the text messages portion of the app, you can see just your business messages that you send from your second phone number. You don’t have to stress about a text message mishap, since all your business messages are in one place.
Make Calls with Your Business Number
One of the main reasons someone gets a business phone number is so they don’t have to give out their personal number. However, in the past, this was because a separate number meant all calls would come through a second phone.
Now, with mobile phone apps, you can make phone calls from your personal device but with a business number. Within the app, you will dial calls using a familiar-looking interface. What’s better: the number that appears on the caller ID is your business phone number, but the person on the other end doesn’t know the call is through an app.
Improve Your Communication with Customers Backed by Data
It’s assumed that most people are busiest from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. But what if you had analytics that showed you exactly when you’re receiving the most calls?
Ninja Number offers thorough reporting with communication pattern data. You have the option to filter the reports by start and end date, which can be especially helpful if your business has seasonal peaks and dips.
You can take the reports, assess your call habits, and redefine your schedule. The app will make recommendations for how you can better communicate with your customers, improve your business, and make more money.
Get an Artificially Intelligent Personal Assistant
You have a limited amount of time to get back to a lead before they lose interest. Even though they’re some of the most important calls you can place, it’s easy to push them to the backburner while you’re juggling all the other aspects of your business.
The beauty of Ninja Number’s mobile phone app is that it uses artificial intelligence to make your life easier. It remembers your critical tasks so you don’t have to.
From app set up to daily reminders, artificial intelligence becomes your personal assistant. It will remind you to call a prospect back, let you know when you’re falling down on the follow-up job, and suggest ways to improve your phone usage.
