What is a Virtual phone number and why are they important?
According to wiki. A virtual number, also known as direct inward dialling (DID) or access number, is a telephone number without a directly associated telephone line. Usually, these numbers are programmed to forward incoming calls to one of the pre-set telephone numbers, chosen by the client: fixed, mobile or VoIP. As expected, Talku offers a virtual phone number system that avails itself of VOIP technology. VOIP is an acronym for Voice Over Internet Protocol, or in more common terms phone service over the Internet.
If you have a reasonable quality Internet connection you can get phone service delivered through your Internet connection instead of from your local phone company. This is the kind of service Talku offers. However, talku VoIP is different from the ones offered by free apps like WhatsApp in the sense that it has the option to purchase your own phone number. You can buy your custom USA, UK, Canada, Belgium or Dutch phone number from them for less than $7 per annum.
Importance of VoIP
I reiterate my acknowledgement of the fact that we have several companies of apps offering voip and virtual phone numbers. Now, let us highlight why as a businessman or woman or as an internet resource individual, you need a virtual phone number.
- Security: This comes before any other reasons. If your security is paramount to you, you will need a Virtual phone number whenever you are giving out your contact on the web. It is difficult to track a virtual number except maybe when the Interpol is after you. Do you wonder why con-artist use a virtual line? To prevent being scammed or hacked, you need it.
- Saves money: The volume of people using WhatsApp’s calls in the world have increased significantly. No less skype, imo, vibers, and Talku(30 million users). It saves you more money if you make your calls over the internet as you won’t need to buy a calling card when talking with fellow users. You only need you good internet.
- Great for telecommuting and telemarketing: Even while you are abroad attending to meetings, you still have the capacity to attend other important meetings in the home office without having to worry about being physically present. You can do conference calls with it video calls and lots more.
- VoIP makes virtual phone numbers possible: This is very important for your long-distance customers and clients, as VoIP enables you to have a business phone number with any area code that you want, instead of having only one assigned area code for the location where you operate. Getting those virtual phone numbers means that people who are not in your region can easily contact you without any charges whatsoever.
- Call forwarding and auto reply: A good voip combined with a virtual number enables you to route or forward your virtual line to your local line. Currently, if you call my virtual USA line, I will pick up the call from my local line. This is a premium service and Talku charges a token
- No drop calls. Talk on the go: As long as you have a reliable internet, you can talk without restriction anywhere, anytime, anyhow.
- 100% free calls between users of same VoIP service: This is already a practice. If you are also a Talku user, you can talk for free to fellow Talku users no irrespective of where they live.
- You can call your client in UK, USA or Canada with your own special line as if you are calling from that country. Talku even offers the option of selecting your preferable city code.
