If getting after-hours business calls or work day personal calls is a problem, it helps to have a separate business phone line, or at least an answering machine or voice mail, to take the incoming calls.

If you have been able to carve a niche it means your site has something relevant and important for the searchers/your target audience.
Prospecting strangers is a big waste of time, energy and patience.

So why should you?
