Why Vanity Toll Free Numbers are an Entrepreneur’s Best Friend

When entrepreneurs begin a business, they often find that they’re dealing with a lot of issues all at once: establishing credibility for their business, building a customer base, networking with potential investors, and trying to cut costs while doing it all.  However, businesses that utilize vanity toll free numbers commonly find this process much easier than those without one, for a number of reasons.

Businesses with vanity toll free numbers have the appearance of being both more credible, and larger, than those with just a cell phone or local phone number.  Customers find these businesses more trustworthy, and feel more comfortable purchasing from them.  Features such as Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and Auto Attendant, which are commonly provided with toll free numbers, also give the appearance that there are more employees than there may truly be.

Building a customer base with vanity toll free numbers is also much easier.  Studies have shown that ads with toll free numbers have a higher response rate of 30% over those that list only a local number.   Vanity toll free numbers are also much more memorable than phone numbers that don’t utilize words, making customers more likely to call your number later.

Finally, vanity toll free numbers are an inexpensive, yet reliable, way for businesses to allow customers to contact them.  The potential customer base expands vastly when customers all over a country are able to contact the business for free, rather than just the customers located nearby.

AVOXI offers feature rich vanity toll free numbers for entrepreneurs, along with 24×7 technical support.  The calls can then be forwarded to any landline, VoIP device, or mobile phone of your choice.  With toll free numbers from more countries than anyone in the industry, AVOXI can ensure that your customers can reach you, no matter where they are located.
