Toll Free Vanity Numbers – 9 Reasons Your Business Needs Them

Toll Free Vanity Numbers make your brand memorable, bring credibility and improved response rates to your marketing campaigns, and help customer service.

Toll free vanity numbers are a type of toll free number that begin with 1-800, 888, 877, 866 or 855, and ends with a word or acronym. The word or acronym promotes your brand and represents your business services and products behind the number.  Customers can call this number toll free.

Toll Free Vanity Numbers Promote Your Brand

1-800-BUY-CAR. 1-800-LAWYERS. 1-800-GOTJUNK. Your toll free vanity number becomes your brand. Your vanity number and brand explain what you do, at a glance. And that’s all the difference in digital marketing for desktop and mobile users. When the average customer is on your web site only six seconds before deciding to stay or leave, a powerful succinct message like a prominent toll free vanity number can be an effective way to help the user confirm that he or she has landed on the right page – a page that matches the user intentions.

With prospective customers in-market increasingly using mobile search and referral links in a click-to-call world, the “vanity” portion of the number (that represents your business) is even more important than the “toll free” function of the toll free vanity number. The eye-catching quality of a branded vanity number like 1-800-FLOWERS stands out in print ads with QR codes, in mobile, and in desktop screens.
