    Hi guys:

    I'm going to have Door hangers printed, But I'm not sure on the phone Number to put on them For customers to call.
    Should I have a new phone installed, and Just have it as The business phone?
    Or just put my home phone number on the advertisement or My cell phone.

    As some of you know I'm just starting out and I only have 3 customers now.

    Just use your cell phone and answer it as a business phone.

    I think a lot of that would depend on how busy you are.
    When I was working with Auto-gate company, my boss would have everybody call his cell. That was great for customers getting a hold of him.. But it was bad for us trying to get something done. That phone ringing constantly.

    I think I would get another line installed. We did that at the farm for hay buyers to call. That way, we could call them back when we were ready to make calls.

    I use my cell phone for everything. Yellow Pages, TV, etc. I have an extra cell phone we got for an employee that didn't work out so if I'm trying a new ad and want to see how it works, I use that # on the ad.

    If money is an issue, definitely go with the cell phone as a business line. You will probably have a good idea if it is a business call or from someone you know if you have caller ID. As you grow go for a land line as well and perhaps even give your cell to customers incase they cannot reach your business number.

    Cell Phone. Keeping a cell phone for business is a business expenditure.
