Setting up a vanity phone number for your business can be a great way to stand out. But, unlike regular business phone numbers, vanity number providers have very different methods when it comes to pricing and how they offer their product. Today we're cutting the confusion to help you find the best vanity number provider for your needs. In our comparison of the top vanity phone number providers, we cover:
- Local and toll free vanity numbers
- Pricing models of each provider
- Features included in their plans
Of course, we at AVOXI are confident that we provide the best value service for the price and features in most cases, but no business is the perfect fit for everyone. Our goal is to help you find the number you're looking for at the best possible pricing, even if that isn't with us. If there is information we may have missed, please contact us! We are always updating our posts to reflect the changes in the virtual number landscape, and want to provide readers with the most up to date information possible. Before we dive in, let's address some common questions.
Local vs Toll Free Vanity Number Providers
In our experience, many new business owners aren't aware of some of the differences between toll free and local vanity numbers. Here's the super quick summary:
- Toll Free Vanity Numbers: Memorable looking phone numbers with a 1-800 dial-code or a similar variation of it (833, 855, etc.). Toll free numbers look professional and are free for your callers. These numbers are not just toll free for your callers in the US. They include coverage in Canada and other North American territories like the USVI.
- Local Vanity Numbers: Recognizable phone numbers with a local dial-code from a particular city, but they can be dialed from anywhere. Unlike toll free numbers, callers pay the same rate as a local phone call when dialing these numbers.
In your case, there is one more important difference between the two types of numbers. All available toll free vanity numbers are tracked in a North American database. Unlike most providers, AVOXI uses this database to help you find the vanity number you're looking for even if we can't be the ones to provide it for you. That same option is not available for local vanity numbers. These numbers are not monitored in a single database, so finding these numbers is more about going to many different local carriers and seeing what they have available.
