The Pros and Cons of Popular Video Conferencing Platforms
Zoom is not the only choice! With work from home (WFH) still going strong for many as we roll into the fall of 2020 (and perhaps permanently for some companies), we all continue…

50 years ago, a majority of working people would head to an office every morning. Go to a café back then, and the work you’d likely find people doing might include: organizing their bills, writing a letter, or maybe you’d spot a budding novelist or two scribbling out some ideas.
Today, of course, cafés can easily be mistaken for workplaces (and Apple stores), as people have their computers flipped up, writing work emails, putting the finishing touches on a presentation, or even writing blog posts (wink).
Along with providing tables to do work, cafés are also frequent spots where people conduct business. Whether its real estate agents finalizing an offer with a client, a lawyer going over the specifics of a contract with someone, or even a financial advisor meeting with a client to go over their recent investments.
Work life has become increasingly mobile for a lot of people. For those who provide services to clients, it can occasionally be hard to separate where one’s private life ends and business life begins.
Enter the Hushed business phone line app. Instead of having to rely on a single phone number for your clients to call, you can get multiple phone lines for small business as quickly as it takes a barista to froth the milk in your latte.
Hushed can give you greater peace of mind, by giving you the ability to give one business phone number to a single client or a group of clients, and a different number to another client. Not only can this help you organize and plan with whom you are talking with, but it also keeps your real number private, and exclusive to your personal life.
The other bonus is that you don’t have to speak with your phone provider. Hushed is easy to set up directly from your existing smartphone. And you can activate telephone numbers for business right away. This allows you greater freedom to run your business by making changes when you want them: wherever you happen to be. Including from a café.
Another way Hushed can come in handy is that it gives you the ability to set up business private lines from pretty much any region where you might have clients.
So, let’s say you have a group of clients that live outside the area code where your real phone number has been set up. Rather than give these clients your real phone number, you can select a business phone number from the same area as them. Not only can this be a way to help you organize your client groups, but it might provide a more personal, relatable experience for a client who is calling a number from his or her own region.
The only difference is that when a client calls you at the local number you’ve given them, that business phone number will ring on your existing smartphone, and you’ll answer it through Hushed.
In essence, then, Hushed gives you the ability to be in as many regions as you want all at the same time. With work life getting increasingly busy and farther and farther removed from a single, physical office, having multiple phone lines for small business can give you additional control to run your business on your own terms.
Try out Hushed today to see how it can give you the flexibility you need to manage your business life and enjoy a cup of coffee at the same time.
