The New York Times reported that your cell phone number is more valuable to hackers and people trying to steal your identity than your Social Security Number. Why? Because it is tied to so many databases including your medical records and bank accounts. For this very reason, you should not just share your personal cell phone number with anyone. It is best to have another phone number you can share publically on websites, social media, "registration" forms.
MBizFone is designed for anyone who wants either a local or toll-free phone number that can be used to separate their business from personal life. While we do not believe you should never share your cell phone number with contacts or clients, we strongly recommend using an alternate phone number for all your marketing purposes. When you have a VoIP number, like the one provided with your MBizFone account, you can make it harder for people to steal your identity since only people you know will get your cell phone number. In addition, the features you see below will prove to you that MBizFone is MORE than just a phone number. It is a business solution as it can provide you with text message autoresponder, multiple call flows, do not disturb times for when you want to be "off hours" and much more.

With MBizFone, you will receive a unique, local telephone number that can be used for marketing and can easily be provided to current and prospective clients. Your cell phone number is used on a lot of private documents, including financial and medical records.

If you answered "No" to this question, then register for MBizFone today! With MBizFone you are able to archive and even tag EVERY phone call. This makes it easier to identify when calls were made and what the purpose of the call was. For example, you could have tags that identify whether the call is a potential lead or was made to request support. To make it even better for you, there is no limit on space so you can RECORD ALL YOUR CALLS and easily review the context of any conversation at a future date.
Whether you answer "Yes" or "No", you will with MBizFone! The only problem with using short codes, is they do not help people connect with YOU. Unless you are paying a huge monthly fee to have your own dedicated short code number, there are a number of organizations using the same shortcode you use. This means it is more difficult to get the keywords you want and the keyword has to be typed as is. With MBizFone, you can select ANY keyword you want and it is attached to YOUR unique phone number which anyone can then use to contact you directly.
We are glad that you want to learn more. Below are some more questions that you should ask yourself. If these don't convince you, then we ENCOURAGE you to CONTACT US for a FREE demonstration of the platform.
