If you don’t yet have a toll-free number for your business, you could be missing a great branding opportunity.
While it’s true that U.S. households are moving away from landline phones in favor of cellular phones, their lack of need for long-distance plans should not color your perception of your own need for a toll-free number.
Sure, individuals can call your local business number for free, from anywhere, on any cellular plan. But can they recognize your local number as easily as 1-800-SKY-DIVE or 1-800-FLO-WERS?
These examples stand out because they’re memorable. If you grab the right vanity phone number, you can make your own business just as memorable.
How to Pick Your Vanity Number
VirtualPBX partners with TollFreeNumbers.com to help you get the perfect toll-free number.
On our partner’s website, you can type in the name or market of your business and find numbers that relate.
Any number you choose will work with the VirtualPBX Business Phone System, and we’ll even waive the porting fee if you get a number from TollFreeNumbers.com.
Your Toll-Free Number Will Work Anywhere
Aside from you new phone number looking cool, it will also be recognizable from anywhere.
Consider what you think of when you see an ordinary out-of-town number like (702) 555-1234. If you live in area code 408 and you see a 702, you know the number isn’t located near you. It’s a turn-off, and it looks unprofessional.
However, a 1-800 number implies that you’re a business, no matter where you use it. It’s basically a free local phone number — just branded to your specifications and portable to anywhere you want to take it.
On any billboard, online marketing campaign, TV spot, or magazine feature, your toll-free number will represent you exactly as you want to be. And any caller can access it for free.
Upgrade Your Marketing
You can also use 1-800 numbers to better track your marketing efforts.
Say you have a marketing campaign taking place on billboards in Dallas, Washington D.C., and Boston. If you use the same number on each billboard, it will be hard to track where people are calling from unless you ask them.
If you have multiple toll-free numbers, though, you can route those inbound calls to specific business representatives who will know, ahead of time, how to address the caller. The VirtualPBX business phone plans let you effectively route calls in a number of ways, including with Advanced Transfers and ACD Queues.
It’s holiday season, so while you’re grabbing a toll-free number for accessibility and marketing purposes, give your business an additional gift from our Refurbished Phones and Hardware Sale. We’re overstocked on many refurbished desk and conference phones, adapters and routers, and computers.
