Alpha Dial Numbers – It’s as easy as A, B, C!

27th June 2016

Remembering a combination of 11 or so numbers can be tricky, even if you’ve repeated them hundreds of times – so how can you expect your customers to remember what your contact number is?

Spelling out a word with your numbers can make a number instantly memorable. Which of the following numbers do you think you’d find easier to remember:

08000 752638
08000 PLANET

Okay, so that was a little bit of a trick question as they’re actually exactly the same number – just take a look at the keypad on your phone now. If your customers know how to spell the word PLANET for Planet Numbers, for example, they’ll be much more likely to remember the contact number because it’s in a word format, rather than the traditional format, i.e. ‘752638’. Makes sense, right?

Stand out from the crowd

Alpha Dial Numbers can make customers more likely to call you because your number is easy to recall and stands out from your competition, so if you’re a London based estate agent who just so happens to have 08000 468737 (08000 HOUSES) as your contact number, you’ll probably find that the number of incoming calls increases thanks to the memorability of your contact number. This can also greatly help with advertising campaigns, because ‘08000 PLANET’ is far easier to notice and remember as it flashes past you on the tube than ‘08000 752638’.
