GET A BUSINESS PHONE NUMBER


Using your personal cell phone is a big no no when building business credit. You need a business phone and 411 listing.

Having a dedicated line means you don’t have to share your personal number with business contacts. More importantly it's what customers and credit agencies expect from serious businesses. Plus, it doesn’t show that you are a one-man shop, if impressions count for potential customers.

GET A BUSINESS ADDRESS


Using your home address or a P.O. Box is going to prevent you from getting business credit. You need a professional business address.
