How is a raven like a writing desk?
Honestly…we haven’t the foggiest idea, and neither did the Mad Hatter when addressing Alice. So why ask such a meaningless question?…because many people feel the same way when we talk about parking phone numbers.
“Hey, you should park your number…”
Huh, what? Park my phone number? Why wouldn’t I just cancel my number?
“Because you may need it in the future.”
Now, we’re not being boorish about this, because we’re in the business of parking numbers. You may consider parking your phone number for the following reasons:
- you’re just sick and tired of your existing phone service, but don’t want to give up a number that is tied to your identity.
- your business is on hold, and you don’t want to give up your number.
- your toll-free-number is by far too cool to release back into the general populous.
- it’s been your home number for far too long that it’s splattered everywhere on the internet(s).
- you want to hand out a secret number that leads nowhere for those you don’t like.
In fact, if you don’t want people running around like a chicken with their heads cut off trying to find you, we’d suggest using our Park Plan that answers your calls with a pre-recorded message and gives you unlimited text messaging. That way you monitor those unwanted solicitation calls by never interrupting your fieldwork again.
You’re already phone smart, so why not be number smart as well…
