0207 numbers are associated with central London, and central London based businesses are seen as being bigger, more reliable or more trustworthy. A London Virtual Office number could make a massive difference to the number calls you receive from your potential 60 million affluent UK customers.
So, whether you are running a web site in Paris, a mail-order company in the USA, or a call centre in Bombay, you can make it easy for your UK customers to reach you by giving them a UK number that they can call.
the marketing benefits?
A London Virtual Office 0207 number is invaluable if you want to present your company as being solid and reliable.
Many overseas companies (especially USA) only provide a 1-800 number in literature and websites, forgetting that potential customers from most other countries are unable to access 1-800 or, if they can, they are then charged full international rates!
Does the 0207 number replace my existing
No. Your existing number will be retained - both can work at the same time. That means if someone is not aware of your new marketing number and still calling you on your 'normal' number, the call will still get through to you.
London Virtual Office

Are the numbers registered to me?
Yes, all telephone numbers are registered in your name. The number will stay with you for as long as you want to use it.
How much do callers pay to ring an 0207?
Callers will be charged standard local or national rate (Mobiles may vary between mobile phone operators).
Can I have more than one number?
Yes, you can have as many numbers as you require.
I am an individual, not a company, can I have an 0207?
