Identify yourself with your product or service

We have numerous customers tell us that our vanity 800 numbers have helped them brand their business, build their credibility, and keep them top-of-mind with their customers.

We use it in all of our advertising, and it’s reassuring to know that people easily remember how to get in touch with us to make an appointment.” Read the full success story

Let your vanity 800 number guide the purchase decision

Phone numbers that incorporate words like NEW or NEXT provide callers with positive reinforcement. For example, using numbers such as 1-800-NEW-HOME or 1-800-NEXT-CAR can result in the creation of an emotional commitment to the call as soon as the prospective buyer picks up the phone and begins dialing.

Feature your vanity 800 number prominently in every campaign

It’s impossible to overuse this powerful tool. To drive more incoming calls, use a vanity 800 number in your television, radio, outdoor, print and direct mail campaigns. And, be sure to feature it prominently on your branded marketing materials like business cards, signs, and forms. Studies show that the longer and more often a number is used, the stronger the association becomes between the number and your product or company. View a vanity 800 number as an investment, and watch the return increase over time.

What Our Customers Are Saying

This is the most incredible service ever. And it’s so easy. One time I sent a fax to some companies listed in the Yellow Pages – totally cold prospects – saying I had 1-800-NEW-VISION and 200,000 listeners. By the time I got back to my desk, the phone was ringing. 800response is a beautiful thing.
