We recommend using Phone.com. They have the cheapest plans and they have really good customer service.
Instead of giving out your actual cell phone or home telephone number, we recommend using a “virtual business phone” 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.
Phone.com offers 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.
All Phone.com plans include:
- Custom phone numbers
- Call forwarding
- Voicemail to email
- User extensions
- Custom greetings
- Custom menus (“press 2 for customer support”)
- Mobile app to use phone number anywhere
- Custom local numbers (pick any area code)
- 1-800 toll numbers
- Free conference calls
- And more!
Phone.com is the best business phone system.
Their pricing is cheap, you get a ton of value, and they have amazing customer support.

Isn’t the business number going to be Northwest? Or should there be two?
Hi Kristina, are you referring to purchasing a business phone number from Northwest… or something else?
Your website saved me a ton of money and anguish by doing things myself. Thank you so much for this great resource.
Hi Danielle, so awesome to hear :) You’re very welcome!
Thank you very much for the the videos. I saw them all and used them as I registered my company. I can’t thank you enough for the thoroughness and how easy it made the process for me.
Hi Mary, thank you for your nice comment! You’re very welcome and I’m happy that we could help make things so easy for 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?
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.
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!
Hey Tesha, you’re very welcome! And thank you for the kind words :)
