Establish a Local Reputation for Your Business

When you have a local fax number, customers will understand you’re a trustworthy company from the neighborhood (not a big corporation or big brand) and be more inclined to work with you.

eFax offers fax numbers in area codes across the country, so you can create a local business presence in your hometown and in any additional, specific markets you want.

Suppose you have a company in Seattle, and you want to establish a local presence in Chicago, too. In that case, you can get local numbers in both cities.

A local number shows potential customers that their market is important to you.
