If you don’t already have a vanity number for your business, you might be unfamiliar with the benefits they provide.

In addition to conveying something meaningful about your company to consumers, catchy 800 numbers can also provide the following benefits:
While you may be eager to start enjoying the many benefits that come with using a custom 800 number, it is crucial you know how to use an 800 number in your advertisements. Here are some tips, based on the specific platform:
If you’re going to use your vanity number in your radio spots, consider creating a jingle for your custom 800 number and tagline to make your phone number even more memorable. Think of Stanley Steamer’s ads as an example. The carpet cleaning company’s jingle relays the phone number and reaffirms what the business does in a single line that makes the information unforgettable.
You can also use billboards to advertise your business. As you’re designing your billboard ads, remember people passing by will only have seconds to take something away from your ad. Since you want them to remember your number, avoid crowding your ad with distracting visuals or unnecessary words. Make sure your vanity number stands out by using a large, bold print that’s easy for people to recognize quickly.
