Hi, my name is Alexis Guerreros, I'm a business consultant. Today, I'm going to talk to you about the pros and cons of switching your business land phone lines to a possible cellular line. Now, there's a couple things to consider and I know some folks who've made this decision. One of the major factors in making that decision is well how many people answer the phones in your business. If you have only one, well, switch to a cell phone line. You can have it with you at all times, you'll never be away from the phone, you sneak out to go grab a bite to eat, you can always have the phone with you, it's a great advantage, but if you have more people that need to answer the phone I would consider sticking with a land line. Frankly, you need extensions, you need other folks that are going to be available, maybe you're out, maybe you're on vacation, maybe you're even sick, at least someone else can answer the phone for you, something to keep in mind. Another one is cost, cell phone lines tend to be costly and although business land lines are also costly the price never goes up based on the amount of minutes you spend. Really, the only thing that can only make a land line go crazy is if you start spending a lot of time on international phone calls and unless that's the pattern of your business you're probably not going to use it. Something else to consider is the minutes used, that can also increase the cost of cell phone line, it's not really going to affect your land line cost, but if you don't need it I wouldn't do it, I'd stick with your slightly more cost effective land line. If you have a great cell phone plan, it's just you answering the phone, well enjoy and good luck.
