15 Reasons You Should Use Google Voice

How come everybody isn't using Google Voice?

Here are 15 reasons why you should be, if you're not already…

This may sound like a commercial, but I am just a fan and user trying to pass on the idea.

  • It's FREE with a GMail account.
  • You can get a new phone number or port over an existing number.
  • You can even choose your new number from an available list in most area codes.
  • You can also have your number include a word or phrase like SALE (7253), if it's available.
  • Free voicemail and call recording (optional).
  • Route incoming calls to as many as 6 different phone numbers simultaneously - one phone number can ring to your office, cell AND home phone!
  • Make calls from your cell phone's data plan with the free Google Voice app (iPhone, Android and even Blackberry) - save your minutes!
  • Add a "Call Me" Button to every page of your website with the Google Voice Widget - customer clicks on it, types in their phone number, Google Voice calls them and then rings the phones you told Google Voice to ring on incoming calls.
  • Free incoming and outgoing calls and text messages to the United States and Canada from your computer with the Google Talk app or Talk PC software from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.
  • Ties into your Google contacts, so all your phone numbers are probably already there
  • Maintains a log of your calls, texts and voice mails.
  • Make calls from your Chrome browser with the free Google Voice extension.
  • You can change the phone number or port it to any other carrier at any time
  • Give it out whenever you don't want to share your home, cell and/or work number
  • Car dealerships can use it for call tracking and/or mystery shopping the competition.

Google Voice makes a lot of sense for car dealers and I am surprised more dealers have not taken the initiative to use it in their operations.

Thanks for the comment, Bruce! I was not aware that you could direct calls during certain hours... gotta try that one!

I use the voice extension as well, allowing me to make business calls from the clearest possible land line.

I was amazed at how many people I was talking to lately who had never heard of it, so I put this together to let everyone know...

I love my Google Voice account. It's my primary number these days! My favorite feature is being able to direct calls to my office during 9 - 5 and home between 5 - 10p on weekdays. The Chrome Voice Extension is great too, what a great time saver!
