Vanity toll free numbers are often seen as a glamorous purchase for a company.  They’re even wrongly thought to be expensive and unattainable. Fortunately, vanity toll free numbers are extremely cost-effective and more readily available than ever before.  Vanity toll free numbers are a great marketing tool to use for businesses of every size.  Because of this, we’ve written this article about using your vanity toll free number for advertising and how one of these numbers can help improve your marketing efforts.

What is a Vanity Toll Free Number?

Vanity numbers are any phone numbers that you select uniquely to provide either an easy number to remember, or numbers that spell out a message related to your brand.  Easy numbers include repetitive patterns like 1212 or sequential patterns like 1234.

It is in many cases possible to integrate the brand name as part of the hand-picked vanity number.  Classic examples such as these:

  • 1-800-Flowers
  • 1-800-PetMeds
  • 1-800-Contacts
  • 1-800-Fujitsu
  • 1-800-JetBlue

The Benefits of a Vanity Toll Free Number

Vanity toll free numbers are great addition to your business. For starters, a vanity toll free number can legitimize your company. Because the phone number can include your business’s name or tagline, it gives your business a larger presence and helps market your brand.

These numbers are also useful because they’re toll free.  A toll free number gives customers a free way to call you.  Because of this, they’re an extremely popular tool for all types of businesses.  You want to make it as easy as possible for people to reach you.

Rather than having a traditional toll free number that is a string of random numbers, a vanity toll free number uses numbers that spell out a memorable phone number. Because of this, your customers are more likely to remember the phone number thus making it easy for them to stay in the contact with your company.
