1-800 numbers used to be available only to medium sized to large companies mainly because of the cost it entailed in availing a phone service and not for anything else. Traditional telephone companies who used to exclusively offer the numbers were charging unreasonably high prices making it unpractical for small businesses to avail. Small-scale businessmen were aware of the benefits of having a toll free number, however the price tag was way too big for them to afford. With cloud based communication providers in the picture, toll free number services became more affordable. Now even small businesses can have 1-800 numbers.

With these becoming more affordable to more businesses, new prefixes were released to cater to the increasing demand. Aside from the popular 800 number, 888, 877, 866 and 855 numbers were added to the number prefix of toll free services. However, consumers are accustomed to 1-800 numbers that they hesitate to call other toll free prefixed numbers on the notion that those are not toll free. If you are looking into offering a toll free line for your consumers to contact you, get the 800 prefixed numbers in as much as you can.

What is all the fuss about toll free 800 numbers?

To begin with, consumers get a sense of security once they see that a business has a toll free number. They know for a fact that they can get service and support at any time they need regardless of where they are located. Hence, consumers who are looking into buying or availing a good product and/or service will prefer to spend their money to a business that has a toll free number over a business that does not have a toll free number.

A toll free number widens your business’s market. Buyers who are geographically away from you will not hesitate to purchase from you because they know that they can reach you if issues arise with their purchase. Toll free numbers are essential to businesses that have buyers that are outside their local area. Toll free numbers are also a must for online sellers who have a very wide market base. The methods of after sales service are among the things that an online shopper considers prior to making a purchase.

1-800 numbers are effective and powerful marketing tools. Research shows that one of the most effective marketing strategies are the numbers that spell something out. For example if a business is a courier service, their contact number could be 1-800-123-PICK. It is very easy to recall their contact number and you don’t have to memorize their number to contact them. You will be able to easily recall the service that they offer.

Toll free numbers is an investment worth making. There are a lot of service providers who offer a good deal. Cloud based providers offer services that are reasonably priced that will surely fit your budget. Build consumer confidence in your business; get a toll free number for your business today.
