For the solopreneur and small business owner, it may seem cost-prohibitive to set up a professional 1300 number for your business.
The reality couldn't be further from the truth. We pay an average of $8 a month for our 1300 number, including the calls ($5 hosting $3 calls).
The way we have it set up is that it funnels through to a mobile phone. When the phone is answered, a short message saying "this is a call to your 1300 number" plays before connecting you to the call.
It also funnels the customer's phone number to your phone, so you also have their mobile or office phone in case you miss the call.
We would recommend you check out Velox Telco for pricing and other information.
