The Importance of an 0800 Number
All too often business owners get wrapped up in the same old limitations; “I’m only a local business, I don’t need a national number” or “I’ve always used my mobile number, why would I need a virtual phone number?”.
Whilst your mobile or local number may have sufficed up until now, it can be greatly holding your business back – the power of an 0800 number is not to be underestimated, and here’s why:
- Increase in inbound enquiries – you’ll experience an increase in your inbound enquiries by as much as 185%*, simply by utilising an 0800 number in your marketing material. Can you really afford to miss out on all that extra business?
- Free calls to 0800 numbers – since July 2015, calls to 0800 numbers from both landlines and mobile phones have been free, which means your customers can get in contact without it costing them a penny.
- 0800 numbers have a national appeal – this can help you to easily expand throughout the country without the constraint of a geographical number.
- Customers respect and trust an 0800 number – they appreciate that you’re making it free for them to contact you and if a potential customer sees you as a reputable business they’re far more likely to buy from you.
