This suggestion is from SSG Technical Support Wizard, Rob Machin:
It may sound trivial, but we encourage all our clients to get a business phone-line for a reason. It’s not just the convenience of having all your business calls in one place, separate from your personal stuff, but the credibility having a landline number gives your potential clients and candidates over just a mobile number.
That’s why we pay for SSG clients to have their own business phone number for the first six months – it makes a massive difference. Having a proper, landline number reassures people of the trustworthiness of your business and it sets down roots, particularly if you’re serving a particular region. I couldn’t recommend it enough.
