The Value of an 866 Number

Anyone who has ever watched TV has probably heard some variant of the following phrase:

“Call toll-free at 1-866-XXXX!”

866 numbers come up so often they seem almost impossible to escape. They’re on your magazine pages, on your television screen, and on you computer. But why? Why do so many businesses use them? Can you business be helped by acquiring an 866 number? In short: what’s the value of an 866 number?

866 numbers are toll free, and are recognized nationwide. Your customers can call (and text!) 866 numbers at no cost to them.

Below, we’ll get into the details of the benefits of an 866 number.

What is a toll-free number?

Toll free numbers can be called at no cost to the caller (effectively, they are “free” of “tolls”). Instead, the receiver of the call will pay for the call. This is a phenomenal deal for businesses.


Well, for one, a customer is undoubtedly more certain to call a business if they don’t have to worry about payment (especially when that call may involve waiting on hold for a long time). Plus, having an 866 number just makes your business seem THAT much more official.

What’s a vanity toll-free number?

Vanity numbers are numbers like “1-555-555-BUGS” that you see in ads. They’re easily memorizable and stick in your head. Vanity toll-free numbers just combine the two concepts, so that you’d get something like “1-866-555-BUGS”.

Do these work nationwide?

You betcha!

Plus, they work in Canada as well! In fact, national recognition is a key positive of 866 numbers. 866 numbers allow callers from around the country to call you for free, regardless of wherever they’re calling from.

How can I use an 866 number for marketing?

Well, call-tracking is a fantastic method for employing your 866 number for marketing purposes. When using offline campaigns (like billboards, for just one example), get a separate 866 number for each. Then, count to see which numbers are receiving more calls. That way you can see which campaigns are successful and which could be changed around.

Can I send text messages with my 866 number?

Yes you can!

As long as your number is text enabled, customers can text your toll-free numbers and you can text them right back!

Is there a difference between 866 numbers and other toll-free numbers?

Not at all!

The reason why there’s different numbers is because the government over time needed new ones as more and more businesses saw their potential.

How can I get one? And is there a difference if I want to get one in Canada?
