Setup a Google Voice Forwarding Number (And Stop Giving Out Your Personal Cell Number!)

In this video guide, Denny walks budding and established therapists through the process of creating a Google Voice forwarding number.

Google Voice is a free service that let’s you register a phone number which automatically sends callers to other phone numbers based on your preferences, specifically the time of day and days of the week.

Want to receive calls to a different phone number on the weekends?  Want to send all calls to voicemail after 7pm?  Sometimes uncomfortable giving out your personal cell phone number to your clients?

In this quick video screen cast, Denny walks you through the process to get signed up, add forwarding numbers, setup basic filters, and even setup a “Call Now” widget for your website.

    Google Voice has been great for me and now that you can integrate into Google Hangouts, it’s been a learning curve but it’s still great. I’ve been using GV/GH on a non-activated smartphone, using just Wi-Fi and I can call & text to almost any US (and maybe Canadian) number for free!

      Totally An! I love it and we use it in our business (since we are so regularly on the phone with insurance companies). It makes it easy for us to be able to be on the phone and forward inbound calls to the right person at the right time with ease. I love most Google products and they really nailed it with Google Voice.

      Glad you liked the article and thanks for your comment!

    I have used GV for more than 4 years and it has been wonderful! I love the fact that I can have both private and business calls/texts on one phone. I have also been able to use the archive feature of GV to go back and track voicemails and texts from clients. I have often recommended GV to other therapists. Now I will link them to this tutorial for easier adoption. Thanks!
