Here at 800response, we’re fortunate to work with wonderful businesses who understand the power of using easy-to-remember response tools, or hooks if you will, as the call-to-action in their advertising campaigns. We recently spoke with two customers; one that has been with us for over 13 years, and another that we’ve had the pleasure of working with for just a few months.
Here’s what they tell us:
“The incoming calls we get are very valuable to us, and the increase in the number of calls we get each month by advertising with 1-800-NEW-RATE contributes greatly to our success.

Vanity telephone numbers are the easiest way to say “call us” and not expect the customer to remember a telephone number. Customers are more likely to remember a word as a number, than a list of numbers. Some research tells us that individuals can only remember a list of four numbers. That is one reason we have the dash in telephone numbers. It allows individuals to remember a number of blocks of numbers.
However, people remember words longer than four letters. So, if you make your telephone number 800 plus a seven letter word, the odds are much greater that people will remember. Not sure about that? Ask friends if they can remember a seven letter word or a seven digit number. You will find that research is right – people will remember the word better than the number…. Read more »
