Toll free numbers are business telephone numbers which are well-used by business people. These numbers are extremely efficient in enticing prospective customers and current clients to contact your company. In addition, 1-800 phone digits do not operate in the same way as traditional telephone numbers. Instead of charging the call transaction to the calling party, the call costs will be shouldered by the called party. This means that any individual who calls your business will not pay for the call expenses. Not even a single cent will be charged to their account. Your company will be the one that would pay for all the calls made to your business. This is a good way of attracting the public to know more about your business products and/or services.

However, customers’ characteristics also depends on several factors. They may have different views on the marketed toll free numbers. This is why businesses should make a wise decision when choosing their business telephone numbers to advertise their products or services. So how do you know which kind of telephone number your company must use? Here are some important things you need to know before advertising and getting a business phone number.

Do they also have a distinct characteristics or community identity? You should pay attention to every single detail about your customer to be familiar with their interest.

While in urban areas, they prefer toll free 800 numbers than any other phone numbers.

Your Products and/or Services

After knowing who your target market is; take a good look on what your business could offer to them. Better ask yourself if you could cater the need of small number of consumers within a specific small area? Or do you plan to serve your merchandise and services to a wider market area?
