Vanity Phone Numbers
Vanity phone numbers are one of the easiest and most effective ways of marketing your business, with long-lasting effects. These numbers are called “vanity numbers” because they add some flair and interest to what would be an ordinary toll free or local phone number. They use numbers arranged in a specific sequence to make a statement for your company, either with your business name, or other wording that is symbolic of your company or industry.
Vanity numbers are customized phone numbers, and they’re excellent for business because they are easy to remember, and they help keep both your business and your business’s number in the mind of your clientele. Increasing brand awareness should be the goal of every company, and having an eye-catching, easy to remember number is one way to accomplish this. This has been shown to have a very positive effect on the response rates of incoming calls received, as well as conversion rates. When repeated on television or the radio, or placed on business cards or on your website, customers will be able to instantly link your company to the vanity number you have listed.
Some of the most famous vanity numbers are 1-800-Flowers and 1-800-Battery, as these numbers use words to make their statements, while placing these companies in the minds of customers as the leading brands in the industry. This is one of the most common and most memorable ways to use a vanity number.
One interesting variant many companies use for their vanity numbers is with repeating numbers or patterns. For example 1-800-112-2212 or 800-666-2266, are both easy to remember and quite simplistic, offering an additional advantage to the businesses using them.
