The many benefits of using a memorable telephone number for your business11th December 2018
The use of telephone numbers within a business is often extremely overlooked; your telephone number is usually the main point of contact for businesses – not just in the UK but all across the world.
One way in which you can leverage the effectiveness of your telephone system is by including a highly memorable telephone number in your advertising and promotions. Memorable phone numbers can help to increase the quantity of inbound calls that your company receives. And this will undoubtably create more leads and therefore increase the overall revenue of the company.
It may seem incredibly simple, but the main benefit of advertising a highly memorable telephone number is that it can attract a lot of repeat business. If you offer customers a contact number that can easily be remembered then your customers will be much more likely to call you when they require your services rather than trawl through the internet looking at all the alternatives.
Another benefit of using a memorable telephone number is the professional image that comes with it. Aesthetically memorable telephone numbers look better, for example the phone number 0333 333 3333 looks so much better than 0345 319 5318. You may not realise but consumers will note the memorable phone number you’re advertising and will make a pre-conceived judgement on how your business is being presented as well as your reputation.
It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you’ve managed to secure a catchy telephone number, you could put it into a jingle. This would help your phone number become a recognisable aspect of your business and its promotions. Extremely similar to the 0800 00 1066 campaign by run by Hastings direct. Some may find this annoying but it’s a great way to get your phone number stuck in people’s heads.

0800 numbers are typically advertised by organisations operating on a nationwide basis that are offering the customers a free point of contact through the 0800 number.
03 numbers are typically used by organisations that are also looking to advertise on nationally. rather than being tied to one specific location. 03 numbers have increased in popularity over the years as they are inexpensive to run and service providers offer a variety of plans and packages, and often include calls to 03’s at no charge.
Finally we have local numbers, these are used by organisations that want to appear that they operate within a specific location.
