You might understand what a 1-800 number is, and how it can benefit your business, but there is a little bit more to it than that. After all, the number you chose is now one of your biggest assets – maximize the work that it does for you.
Here are a few tips to increase the productivity and success of your 1-800 number.
Choose digits that are easy to recall. The whole point of a 1-800 number is that it is much simpler to remember than a local number. Go with digits that people are unlikely to forget, or consider a vanity number.
Always be consistent. The 1-800 number you choose should be used across the board within your business. This means using it on all of your traditional, digital, and on-air communications. The more consistent you are with your number, the better you build your brand.
Simplicity generates calls. If you do go with a vanity 1-800 number, keep your customers in mind. A word that has nothing to do with your business, or one that is hard to spell, won’t increase the number of calls you receive. When choosing your word, make it easy to spell and in-line with what your company does.
You may have taken the first step and picked out your 1-800 number, and that’s great. But take it a step further and increase the value that it holds for your company. If done right, the number you choose could be the key difference between you and all of your competition.
