    Thank you for visiting my page.



    Now, i will share with you a very good business niche that could make you $100s/week.

    As my title says its about the forwarded numbers business and i will describe below a little something about this business.

    Having a business or even for personal use we need more and cheaper phone numbers given the world we live in. We cannot carry 10-20 phones with us or have 10-20 sims to use it with one or 2 phones lets say. So, the solution is to buy online phone numbers we forwarded them to one single phone number.

    Almost a year ago i needed like 20 lines/numbers for my businesses because my 3 personal and business numbers was not enough, so, i started and researched and researched to find someone that was selling cheap and reliable US forwarded numbers.

    Took me some time to find someone to trust him enough, so, i bought some cheap forwarded numbers, the guy forwarded them to the 3 personal and business numbers that i already had and as it was a success i kept renewing them (keep in mind that i did not spam any kind of site(s))

    Very soon an idea started to raise in my mind and was growing everyday.

    I thought to myself: why on Earth would i not sell numbers myself to people that need numbers? So, i put up a business in this niche and soon i started selling numbers and making money.


    But, let me give you few hints:

    - never sell numbers having in mind that people will buy numbers from you for spamming, start this business if you are against that
    - you have to find a direct provider for your numbers, you would not want to resell this numbers on a third hand or something
    - if you do not find a direct provider you better don't get in this business, else you will end up losing money because if you resell numbers from a non direct provider then the guy you buy from will probably end up without numbers very often, why?
    --- because they make "deals" with some employee from a telephone company and soon the company will see that and shut it down and this will affect your business
    - during my quest i tested numerous "providers", a lot of them are now out of business
    - i had the luck to find a direct provider based on a contract and i am almost 100% that the business will continue to grow as i have been using this provider for few months now
    - you have to be able to change the forward number from time to time for a small fee if your clients will ask that (this is the main number where a customer wants to have all numbers to be forwarded to), people do that if they have 2 numbers or more or have an employee or employees that will assign them to manage some businesses and change those employees between them, so, this is important
    - another important thing would be customer service, you have to be online most of the time, do it yourself at the beginning and hire someone when the business grow
    - do to not mix orders, use folders in your email for each new customer/order - this is very important, if you mix up orders you will lose money
    - try to use various payments method and make sure you can handle them to say so
    - make sure your turnaround time would be 3-5 days, if it happens to not accomplish that ask your customer if he wants a refund and do refund him if he wants that, but the best is to respect your turnaround time - this saves you money
    - make sure your price is not higher than $7/number
    - make sure your numbers are good, test, test and retest them yourself - else you will lose money
    - make sure to have a refund policy and respect that entirely
    - if you build up a site do not use black, red, yellow or orange as colors, use blue, gray, white, ice blue, try to ensure a nice feel for the customer
    - build a good reputation online by respecting your word and your customer, see your customer as if its the most important asset of your business.



    I am doing this business currently to say so and hope to come up with other hints, news and updates soon as i am learning everyday.

    Research on forums for sellers, on google, yahoo, build a relation ship with them and finaly they will give you some info you need to get to the provider itself or info how they done it to get to such a direct provider and then make a business proposition to that provider - that's what i did.

    Unfortunately, i cannot provide my provider's details here, but i hope that what i wrote above its more than nothing to get you inspired. Just research, research, research, finally money will come, you will see.


    Thank you, again, for reading this,
    Martin

    ppcgod: I would not want a direct answer from me to be considered by the moderators as advertising and delete my post or worse to ban me, but the answer is in my post...and i do not want to sound mysterious or something

    Go get approved for a sales thread and you'll have more business then you can handle. Till then starting threads like this will just get you banned cause it's clearly just an advertisement.

    Martin, there are numerous references to a Martin Hobok online as a pretty seasoned scammer, not you is it?

    If it was I have no idea why you would use this name as your BHW username :)
