Presents a Professional Image
A 1800 number gives potential customers the impression that it belongs to a large, established, national business. These numbers enhance the credibility and professional image of your business.
Demonstrates your Focus on Customer Service
1800 numbers can make it free or cheaper for customers to call you nationwide. This demonstrates that you care about your customers and invites them to call you economically. Having a 1800 number can also give you the edge over your competitors who may only advertise a local or mobile phone number.
Makes Relocating Easy
Most businesses need to relocate at various times, for example as the business grows and needs more space. With a normal phone number, this can be very inconvenient and costly: changing phone numbers, redirecting old numbers, reprinting marketing materials, losing contact with customers, etc. If you have a 1800 number, they stay the same when you need to relocate.
Easy to Remember
Normal landline and mobile phone numbers are 10 digits long and are not always easy to remember. 1800 numbers have only 6 digits that callers need to remember. We also have low-priced premium numbers that are even more memorable.
Reduces "locality" prejudice
Some callers will only call businesses where they recognise the phone number as being in their own suburb, area or state. This often limits a business's ability to expand outside its own area. 1800 numbers are non-geographic and if you choose to promote your business outside your local area, they can increase the potential to receive calls (and business) from a much larger catchment area.
One Single, National Number for Businesses of any Size
Whether your are a small, owner-operated local business or a large national corporation, 1800 numbers provide a nationwide, single point of contact and offer flexibility for future growth and stability and continuity of your contact information.
Tracking and Analysis of your Marketing and Advertising
Our online customer portal allows you to see each caller's phone number details and the time and duration of each call. This can help you to analyse response to your marketing: who's calling you and in the case of landline callers, where they're calling from. Multiple 1800 numbers can be used economically to test the effectiveness of various advertising campaigns.
Increases Response to Marketing and Advertising
If you make it easier and cheaper for customers to call you, then it is logical that you should receive more calls to your 1800 number.
