Get a Toll Free Number and Build Business Credibility

When people see a toll free number, they automatically assume the phone number belongs to a large and professional enterprise.

Why Should I Get a Toll Free Number for My Small Business?

Toll free numbers provide callers with a free call. A toll free number charges the business (the receiver) instead of the person making the call. This leads to a rise in customer calls for product inquiries or customer support as callers do not have to worry about paying for their call.

Toll free numbers help your small business not only enhance brand recognition and credibility but also increase your sales and boost your ROI. Along these lines, here are the top 5 benefits of getting a toll free number for a small business.

1. Increasing Caller Experience and Customer Satisfaction

When consumers were surveyed, they pointed out that one of the most annoying aspects of a company was discovering no easy way to contact them. Customers generally call a business to inquire about products and services or to receive immediate assistance and support.

A business number that is hard to find or expensive to call can lead to frustration. A toll free number is free for callers to call within target countries. In fact, you can even get international toll free numbers (ITFNs) for different countries and offer free calling to those customers. Their calls (even though international or long-distance) get forwarded to your business wherever you are located while still remaining free for them.

You can display this number on your website, social media outlets, advertising campaigns, and more. This way, callers can quickly connect with you for free, no matter where your business is located, improving caller experience and satisfaction.

2. Make Your Number and Brand Memorable

Another great thing about a toll free number is that they are really easy to remember. You can capitalize on this by making your number more creative and memorable by using a vanity number. Vanity phone numbers use patterns, letters, or brand names to grab more attention. For example, you can use patterns such as 1-800-444-4242 or 1-800-505-5050 or introduce letters or your brand name like 1-800-CONTACTS, 1-800-MATTRESS, or 1-800-FLOWERS.

Over time, businesses have used this tool to create numbers that catch the eye and stick with the audience longer. If they can remember your number, they will call you. This is a very good way to not only generate sales but also to increase brand awareness.

3. Boost Your Credibility and Visibility

While initially toll free numbers were primarily used by call centers, large corporations, and multinational companies, this is no longer the case. You can use a toll free business number to add credibility and enhance your company’s professional image and brand awareness. This is especially useful for new, small business owners.

4. Maintain Portability by Going Virtual

The best part about getting a virtual toll free number is that your physical location doesn’t matter. Here are a few scenarios where a toll free number can help your business virtually:

  • Need to relocate but do not want to lose access to your customers or change your number
  • Expand to new regions or countries with international numbers
  • Bring remote workers on board without needing new numbers
  • Forward calls to any location, line, or device as desired
  • Easily port your number if you decide to switch providers.

All of these reasons give your small business the flexibility and room it needs to grow and flourish.

5. Use it as a Marketing Tool

Lastly, you can use toll free numbers as a marketing tool. For instance, toll free and vanity numbers can both be used to help you keep track of your marketing campaigns. Use one number for your website and social media campaigns and another for print or billboard ads. Additionally, you can have different toll free numbers for different geographical locations.

This way, when calls come in, you can identify which ads brought you these new customers. Based on this information, you can streamline your marketing and sales operations to get the most out of them.
