Business Phone Number

Instead of giving out your actual cell phone or home telephone number, we recommend using a “virtual business phone” system specifically for your LLC and your business.

You can set this virtual business phone up to forward to your cell phone, go through voice prompts, or configure it any way you’d like.

We recommend using They have the cheapest plans and their customer service is excellent!

They offer local phone numbers as well as 1-800 toll-free numbers. You can easily setup call forwarding, pre-recorded prompts, and get voicemail messages forwarded to your email.

Getting a separate business phone number for your LLC is also a good idea in order to keep your actual number private from those pesky “public record” websites. Business Phone Service in the Cloud: Small Business VOIP Provider + 50 Advanced Features

    Your website was a godsend; trying to figure out all that was needed to start my LLC was quickly becoming a nightmare but you guys truly made it a breeze. Thank You Thank You!

    Thank you very much Mr. Horwitz for your amazing way you use to teach us all about a LLC. I was so confused before but now I know a lot. One thing I did no see in your entire guide is you never mentioned anything about insurance. I heard I should have a liability insurance and a worker’s compensation insurance if I will hire workers and that the premium is a little high. Could you please tell me something about it. How and where can I get it if it is required. How much it would be?
    Thanks again.

      Hi Luis, apologies for my slow reply. Thank you very much for your nice comment! I appreciate the kind words. We have insurance and workers’ compensation on our roadmap, but we don’t have anything published yet, so therefore don’t have any recommendations yet. But we will soon though. Thank you.
