Local fax numbers help businesses establish a credible and trustworthy presence within a specific geographic area. This local touch can be especially advantageous for attracting customers who prefer to work with businesses that understand and cater to their community.
Local fax numbers facilitate cost-effective communication with clients, customers, and partners in the same area. Since these numbers are considered local calls, there are typically no long-distance charges involved, making it a budget-friendly choice for businesses.
Having a local fax number means you're easily accessible to individuals and organizations within your region. This accessibility can lead to increased inquiries, collaborations, and opportunities for local business growth.
People tend to trust businesses with local affiliations. A local fax number can instill confidence in potential clients, as it suggests that your business is part of their community and understands their unique needs.
Rather than being connected to a physical landline, as with a traditional fax machine, when you sign up to an online fax service, you’re assigned a virtual fax number instead. Any senders can then fax you at that number, and you will receive the message via the online fax software’s interface.
Local fax numbers are available with Fax.Plus starting with the Basic Plan at $6.99 per month. This plan comes with one dedicated fax number. Additional local numbers come at a price of $4.99 per month.
If you call a fax number associated with a traditional fax machine, you will typically be connected, but all you’ll hear will be a series of beeps. You can’t actually make a call and speak to someone on a fax number. The same is true for a virtual fax number attached to an online fax service; it’s not for making or receiving calls.
