A toll-free number is an integral part of many businesses and their phone communication strategy. Toll-free numbers have become more and more common and some customers expect every business to have one.

A toll-free number allows new and existing customers to get directly to your business without having to pay anything, making businesses who use them highly accessible.

What are Toll-Free Numbers?

A toll-free number is specially designed with a three-digit area code. Toll-free numbers are virtual telephone numbers that are available in a preset format with easy to recognize codes such as 1-800, 1-888, and so on. The main benefit of a toll-free number for your callers is the fact that they won’t be charged for the call. This eliminates a potential barrier to phone communication.

Toll-free numbers can also be vanity numbers because they are easy to obtain and are highly memorable.

Advantages of buying a toll-free number

One of the advantages of toll-free numbers and services in your business is that it is much easier to remember than any other number, especially if it is a vanity number! Vanity toll-free numbers can be identified by having keywords, instead of a string of numbers (such as 1-800-PETSHOP). These numbers are easy to remember, especially when used in marketing and advertising material.

Vanity numbers aren’t necessary to see the advertising benefits of toll-free numbers. Studies have shown that ads that use toll-free numbers receive twice as many clicks as ads that do not use such phone numbers as contact information.

Taking advantage of toll-free numbers makes it easier for your callers to remember you, improving customer service and satisfaction by being available for calls. A toll-free number is also portable, so companies can keep their old numbers to take important business calls even if they switch phone providers.

The toll-free number will bill the company for incoming calls instead of the customer for making the call. This is the main advantage of a toll-free number: it allows a caller to reach a business or private individual without being charged for the call.

You will find that offering a toll-free number can increase your call volume and help you manage your growth.
