Why do I need a call forwarding number?

Subject: This article serves to explain why we recommend adding a call forwarding number in Orum.


We recommend setting a call forwarding for two primary reasons:

  1.  Return calls! You want your prospects to be able to call you back if you leave them a voicemail, or if they missed your call.
  2. Spam Flag Prevention! We have found that adding a call forwarding number 
    •  Carriers sometimes test to see if a number is real
    •  Prospects are more likely to report you as spam if your return number isn't real
    •  No inbound calls make the line look more suspect.
    • Having a valid call forwarding number set also closes the "loop" that most carriers and networks look for.  If a number actually rings when it is called back, the likelihood of spam flagging reduces.
