0800 freephone numbers for business

When it comes to telephone numbers, there is so much variety to choose from.  Between, 0800’s, 03’s, 0845’s or local 01 & 02 numbers, the list of options is endless. With all this choice it can be hard to decide which type of phone number to go for, this is why we’re here to help!

It’s vitally important that your business advertises a phone number that your customers will be happy to call, as in many cases no calls will mean no business.

Taking this into consideration it becomes a no-brainer that you should opt for an 0800 freephone number.

0800 numbers are completely free to call from both UK landlines and mobiles and are widely recognised as such.

You don’t want potential customers to avoid calling you if they’re unsure how much they’ll be charged just to call you. 90% of people recognise 0800 numbers as free to call, immediately erasing this worry from the mind of your customers and making them much more likely to make an enquiry. When advertising an 0800 number you will see an increase in your response rates by as much 185% — this could completely transform the dynamics of your business!

Advertising an 0800 number will also give your business a ‘non-geographic’ presence, meaning that you don’t appear to be restricted to one location like you are with a local 01 or 02 number. An 0800 number will allow you to advertise all across the UK, opening your business up to an entirely new demographic.

Once you’ve got your 0800 number connected, you keep this number for as long as you want, even if you move your business’ location. And you won’t have to go through all the hassle of changing your phone number or any of the existing marketing, business cards, flyers or vehicle livery.
