Virtual mobile number

Definition: What is a virtual mobile number?

First of all, note that a virtual mobile number is different from the classic phone numbers. Indeed, unlike normal numbers, a virtual number does not correspond to a physical phone line. It is based on a cloud hosting system, which can be attached to a fixed or mobile line, or to any other type of device connected to the internet. 

The features of virtual numbers are numerous, but the available offers depend on the providers chosen to rent yours. Of course, a virtual number allows you to make and receive calls or send messages, but not only. Since the advantages offered by mobile telephony are not limited to these simple actions.

Especially in terms of customer support and satisfaction through conversational communication.

Advantages: why communicate by sms via a virtual mobile number with your customers?

In the world of marketing, the use of sms is a must. There is no better way to ensure a better customer proximity and to build customer loyalty. 

But why? 

Because sms simplify the life of customers 

For your customers, reading an SMS is probably one of the easiest options. The messages appear directly in their notifications, and they don’t need to have an internet connection to see them. So your customers don’t need to have a smartphone either, so you can reach a much wider audience. 

Moreover, since with Octopush, you combine the sending of messages with the rental of virtual numbers, the advantages are multiplied. Indeed, with the use of Octopush’s cell phone, you have an exclusively local virtual mobile number. This reassures your customers and gives them confidence in you. That is to say, to read your message and eventually respond to it.  

Because virtual messages are easily delivered 

According to studies on the subject, more than 98% of messages (virtual or not), are read. Unlike emails, for example, which sometimes go to spam or are hidden by the abundance of emails. 

So, if you want to be sure that your message is read, virtual sms remains the best option. 

Why communicate with your customers by SMS via a virtual mobile number?

Because the reading time is low 

According to statistics, 90% of messages are read within 10 minutes of being sent. An advantage that will allow you to bet on the impulsiveness of your customers. 

If, for example, you decide at the last minute to propose an ephemeral offer, your customers will be able to read it as quickly as possible. The more interesting the offer will be, the more they will feel obliged to take advantage of it (especially if it is short-lived). 

At Octopush, we offer something better. Indeed, we put at your disposal an exchange platform that will accelerate even more this exchange. All you have to do is rent your own virtual mobile number and you’re done! Exchange quickly and extremely smoothly with your customers (and partners) and make sure you get even closer to them.
