We all know how challenging running a business can be, as there is so much to think about and so much organizing involved. You have to manage your time effectively, make sure your finances are on track, deal with employees, deal with customers, and much more. Thankfully, mobile technology has helped to make this process a little easier for many people as it means that you can continue to work and communicate even when you are out and about or away from the office on vacation. You don’t have to be left out of the loop and you can continue making and taking calls no matter where you are.
However, one thing that can have an impact on your ability to work efficiently via your mobile phone is if you receive continual nuisance calls from cold callers. While the odd nuisance call may not pose too much of an issue, some companies have various ways and means of getting hold of your business mobile number. This means that you could end up being bombarded with calls and this could pose a real issue when it comes to actually running your business, taking calls from customers or employees, and conducting other business activities on your phone.
What you can do to stop this from happening
Fortunately, there are steps you can take these days if you are being inundated with calls on your business mobile. When you think about it, the time you spend trying to get rid of cold callers that keep phoning your business mobile is time you could be spending doing work or contacting customers. In addition, while another person is on the phone to you, your customers and employees cannot get through and this is another major concern.
When you receive unsolicited nuisance calls, you have every right to tell the caller that you don’t want them calling you again and to remove your details. This is something that they should do right away, as the Federal Communications Commission has brought in strict new rules with regards to these types of persistent calls. Of course, you have to bear in mind that when these calls are made they will often come up as private numbers so trying to match them via your call log will be difficult. However, if go online there are tools that will enable you to lookup their phone number so you can determine if it is the same person or company that keeps calling. This is something that you can do even if the call comes up as private.
If you then find that it is the same person or company that keeps calling despite being told not to call you again, you have the right to make an official complain. This complaint goes through the FCC and you should include details of the dates and times that the calls were made to you. The FCC can then carry out their investigation and take action, which means fewer nuisance calls for you to worry about.
Cold callers on your mobile are just another form of spam. Preparation and quick action can help prevent future annoyances.
