“Thanks for shopping with us today… may I please have your phone number?”
Have you ever noticed, every time you buy something in a store, subscribe to a magazine, or even sign a petition… they ask you for your phone number? Why do you think that is?
Sure, they may need it for verification purposes or even use it to give frequent shopper discounts, but what happens to your private phone number? Well, once they have it, one thing’s for sure – you’re in their database. And you can’t be sure that they’re going to keep it private. They might sell your number, and you, to anyone they can. And here come the unwanted calls.
You can just make up a number, but you’ll be missing out on whatever benefits they are offering. Be connected, but on your terms.
Or, say you’re helping out at a campaign, working with a local charity or any activity where you need to give a lot of people access to you. How do you do this and maintain control of your privacy and private time?
With Vumber, the power is in your hands. You can change your Vumber any time you want, send callers to Vumbermail (your own Vumber voicemail), give them a busy signal or even an “out of service” message… and those are just a few virtual phone number features. And it’s not just about receiving calls, you can also make calls using your Vumber, which means that your Vumber will show up on their caller ID and not your private phone number.
So the next time they ask you for your number, give them your Vumber instead. That way, you’ll be in control and connected, because a Vumber is a valid number. A valid number with total control.
