Toll Free Numbers Are Forever

Toll Free Numbers Are Forever

You’ve heard it said about diamonds – but did you know that toll free numbers are “forever”? That is to say, you can keep a good, dependable toll free number for life.

When you secure a toll free number through a service provider, you have certain protections afforded to you by the FCC that help you keep that number in the event you change service providers, or even change businesses. Today we’ll cover that protection, some pitfalls to watch out for, and how to go about changing providers should the need arise.

Toll Free Number Tricks: Question & Answer Voicemail

Toll Free Number Tricks: Question & Answer Voicemail

With a toll free number and virtual phone system from FreedomVoice, your voicemail service goes well beyond just taking messages on missed calls.

One of our most popular voicemail features is the ability to set up automated question and answer voicemail boxes. These voicemail boxes prompt callers with a series of your pre-recorded questions, then string their answers together into a single voicemail message. For example, if your automated questionnaire involves five quick “Yes or No” questions, you might get a message in this voicemail box of, “Yes – No – Yes – Yes – No.”

Here are a couple great ways you can use question and answer voicemail boxes with your business…

Improving Your Small Business Website: Landing Pages

Improving Your Small Business Website: Landing Pages

A landing page is a specialized webpage that appears when a potential customer clicks on your online ads or a search-engine result link to visit your website. The page ideally displays content that is a logical extension of the ad or link by using specific keywords, phrases, and images that match the visitor’s expectations.

Properly executed, landing pages can be highly effective at improving your website’s conversion rate, or ability to turn clicks into new business. When given the chance, I recommend consulting with a good copywriter and designer for maximum benefit.

Here are the four basic elements you should look to include when building your own landing pages…

FreedomVoice 800 Numbers Now Just $10

FreedomVoice 800 Numbers Now Just $10

A gallon of gas, a movie ticket, even a cup of coffee – everything’s more expensive today than yesterday, and probably going to be even more expensive tomorrow. Call us crazy, but we’re going to swim upstream with this one.

800 numbers have grown increasingly scarce for a while – and for that reason every toll free number service provider values them with some kind of one-time premium. Frankly, the upgrade is worth it if the price is right – it’s sure to pay for itself. To say nothing bad about an 866, 877, or 888 prefix toll free number, for my money I’d go for the original, the true value. We think you should to, and to help you get there we’ve dropped our 800 number price to just $10.

Toll Free Number Tricks: Preventing Prefix Misdials

Toll Free Number Tricks: Preventing Prefix Misdials

We’ve all misdialed – swapping a couple digits or mashing multiple numbers by accident. We get connected to some random stranger who sounds nothing like who we were expecting, and we fumble for an embarrassed explanation before hanging up.

With 866, 877, and 888 prefix toll free numbers, the main cause of misdialing is in the prefix. 800 numbers have been around considerably longer than these other numbers, so “8-0-0″ is the default in the minds of your customers. If they don’t have your contact info handy, there’s a risk they might fill in the blank with the wrong prefix.

Here are some easy ways to prevent prefix misdials.
