Vanity numbers are very cool 800 phone numbers that are easy for your potential customers to remember. One of the most popular modern ones is 1-800-Flowers. Just think about that for a moment. How simple is that to remember? It’s a little unfortunate, but it’s likely simpler to remember than the occasion you need to buy last-minute flowers for.
In today’s hectic society, it’s true that we have volumes of information at our fingertips. However, it still takes longer to log into your Smartphone and search for a business website and phone number (even with one touch dialing), than it does to just remember a phone number like 1-800-Flowers, and dial it.
New and Struggling Businesses
According to recent statistics, by the 4th year in business, 50% of all new businesses have failed. What are you doing to set your business apart?
Whether your target market is a local one or a national one, securing one of the more memorable, available vanity 800 numbers is a simple step you can take that many of your competitors will ignore.
While everyone is focusing exhaustively on SEO, you’ll have a little something extra in your toolbox. Vanity numbers can often increase marketing response rates up to 25% to 50%, and people will likely call your business months after you have finished your marketing campaign.
Using a vanity number as part of your marketing strategy is excellent, especially if you are targeting a local market. When you place advertisements on buses, on TV commercials and in local periodicals, your target market will definitely remember you.
If your muffler shop phone number is 1-800-Quiet-Car, people who need a new muffler will remember that you can definitely solve their problem. This is so important. A vanity number does in one breath, what SEO takes multiple informative or persuasive articles to do. Even if you have the worst prices in town, everyone will at least call to check to see what your prices are first!
Vanity numbers connect you with highly targeted leads, people who will really keep your phone number for a rainy day. Though online marketing is important, vanity numbers allow you a new strategy that is still effective outside of the realm of SEO. Contact us as soon as possible to get the ideal vanity number for your business, because once it’s gone, it’s gone.
