Why your business, big or small needs a Freephone number?

Typically if you are self-employed you are most likely to use a mobile contact number and whilst this may seem like the most practical solution, it may not the most professional. Equally, larger businesses may not have thought of the impact high call costs can have on their customers. Regardless of how big or small your business may be, having a Freephone 0800 number is essential. The advantages of having a Freephone number are endless, from increased customers to simple professionalism; the following demonstrates the multiple reasons why 0800 numbers are an unquestionable asset.

Whether you are a well-established business or just starting out, Freephone numbers provide your business with instant credibility. It gives you the opportunity to appear nationwide which will only enhance your overall image.

There is nothing worse than trying to contact a business and being charged an extortionate amount to do so. As the name would suggest Freephone numbers are completely free so even if your customers are in a phone queue they are safe in the knowledge that they are not being charged for the call. This kind of customer satisfaction is extremely important to ensure that your business succeeds; the easier it is for your customers to reach you, the more reassured they will feel.

Having a number that doesn’t pertain to any particular area means that you can not only have increased portability but also pull in customers from across the country. You can be reached wherever and whenever by simply having calls redirected to a phone or automated system of your choice. Not only that, but once your business purchases a Freephone number it is permanently yours regardless of what provider you are with or what packages you have.

Finally, one of the most overlooked but most appealing aspects of having a 0800 Freephone number is how memorable they can be. Most people will complain about how they have an advert stuck in their head because of the jingle that accompanies a Freephone number but this is the beauty of the number. One of the most infamous examples is the Hastings Direct number of 0800 001066 with the added bonus of 1066 being the year of the Battle of Hastings. It’s easy to see how Freephone numbers coupled with smart marketing techniques can create a memorable business.
