I’m a serial entrepreneur. Over the last 15 working years, I have run several small businesses – from a vintage clothing store, an e-commerce site, many blogs and a small business marketing company.
One start-up cost that always was such a pain to me, was the cost to setup a landline. As soon as you mention BUSINESS, expect your costs to soar. Special thanks to magicJackGO for sponsoring this post.
Landline: A landline telephone (also known as land line, land-line, main line, home phone, landline, fixed-line, and wireline) refers to a phone that uses a metal wire telephone line for transmission as distinguished from a mobile cellular line, which uses radio waves for transmission.Wikipedia
Did you know if you have high speed internet you can avoid paying landline costs by purchasing a simple device? You will have your own phone number. This will allow you to setup all of your home phones (so yes, you can hear your phone ring and talk on it – not a computer headset!).
In addition to a phone number, you will get a free voicemail, free pinless conference calling (which is great for a small business!), free call forwarding and more. Great, right? But let’s talk about HOW to get this!
magicJack is a digital phone service that allows you to make unlimited local & long distance calls to the U.S. and Canada. To use magicJack you will need a product called magicJackGO.
With the magicJackGO, you can cut your landline and use your high speed internet connection to setup a phone line! Or if you are wanting a second phone line, you can use the magicJackGO for that. This is a great alternative to having to purchase another phone line for a business!
It’s been a while since I have needed a landline for business, I was curious as to how much a business line would cost. I did a quick search and found out that a business line can set you back over $50 a month!
MagicJackGO you has the same features, but all thru a little device and no on-going monthly fees. The magicJackGO device is just $59.95!
Are you looking for an affordable solution to paying for a land line each month? Ditch the old school phone line, buy a magicJackGO and use your cordless phones (and corded) around the house without having to pay any hefty fees. magicJackGO allows you to get setup in only a few minutes.
Do you travel as a small business owner? You can take the magicJackGO with you! Yes, you can use your computer wherever you go, bring the magicJack device and make unlimited local & long distance calls to the U.S. and Canada.
Do you make international phone calls? If both callers have a magicJack device – you can make FREE international phone calls.
