800 Numbers: What’s the fuss?

Anyone who has ever watched TV has probably heard some variant of the following phrase: “Call toll-free 1-800-XXXX!”
800 numbers are incredibly common. You see them in ads in papers, on the internet, and on television.

  • But what are they?
  • Why do so many businesses use them?
  • And how can an 800 number help your business?
  • In short: what is the value of an 800 number?

Well for one, 800 numbers are toll free, and have a national presence. Your customers can call and text 800 numbers for free!

What is a toll-free number?

Toll free numbers are numbers that can be called at no cost to the caller (in effect, they are “free” of “tolls”). Instead, the receiver of the call takes on any costs associated with the call. While this would seem to not make a ton of sense for the average homeowner, it’s great for businesses. Why?
Because a customer is way more likely to call a business if they don’t have to pay for it (especially when that call may involve being put on hold). Plus, having an 800 number just gives your business that extra oomph of professionality.

What’s a vanity toll-free number?

Vanity numbers are the numbers you see that are something like “1-555-555-DOGS”.
They’re easily memorizable and stick in your head. Vanity toll-free numbers simply combine the two concepts, so that you’d get something like “1-800-555-DOGS”, giving you the best of both worlds.

Do these work nationwide?

Not only do they work nationwide, but 800 numbers work in Canada too! In fact, the national recognition is part of the value 800 numbers provide.
800 numbers allow callers from around the country to call you for free.

Can I send text messages with my 800 number?

Not only do they work nationwide, but 800 numbers work in Canada too! In fact, the national recognition is part of the value 800 numbers provide.
800 numbers allow callers from around the country to call you for free.

Can I send text messages with my 800 number?

Yes you can!
As long as your number is text enabled customers can text your toll-free numbers and you can text back.

Is there a difference between 800 numbers and other toll-free numbers?

Nope!
The reason why there are different numbers is because the government needed to make new ones to keep up with demand–they are that popular.

How can I use an 800 number for marketing?

A great way is what’s called “call-tracking”. When using offline campaigns (like ads in magazines, on billboards, television, radio, etc.), get a separate 800 number for each, then track who is calling what number. That way you can see which campaigns are successful and which can be improved.
