Toll free vanity numbers are a great way to improve your business image and increase your return on advertising. To find the number that’s right for you, start with a word or phrase that you want your customers to associate with your business. If you sell bicycles, for example, the word “BIKE” at the end of your vanity number is a good start. Throw in a toll free prefix and a few more digits, and you have a great phone number that will stick with your customers long after they’ve seen your ads.Choose a Vanity 800 Number
You don’t need to spell out a word to create a memorable vanity number. In fact, many businesses get better results with vanity numbers just by using easy patterns like repeating digits (e.g. “8585”) or sequential digits (e.g. “2345”). These numbers can make just as good of an impression on your customers as words, especially if the pattern is emphasized in a catchy jingle or called out with large fonts on billboards or magazine ads.
