Sound more professional with 888 numbers
Think of a toll free number as an asset to your business. When customers and users call your line, they’ll reach your help desk or customer service without being charged for the call. When people think of toll free calling, they usually think of 800 numbers. In fact, there are other great options. Guess what? An 888 number acts the same as an 800 number. Instead of using the traditional 800 prefix which is tougher to come by these days, 888 is another option.
Why not 800?
Toll free numbers are popular, and for good reason. 800 numbers allow a user to call free of charge, putting the price of the call on the business rather than the customer. Because 800 numbers became so popular for business use, the telecommunications industry introduced 888 as an alternative prefix. After introducing 888, the industry released a number of other options. Today, these numbers are widely known and accepted as a toll free option. Grasshopper carries all of the options, as well as local numbers. We have tons of 888 numbers in stock.
Why should I get a number starting with 888?
- You’ll always own it. Today’s numbers are owned by you. A carrier doesn’t own it, and it can be transferred to services as you see fit.
- Your business looks good. Toll free numbers make a business look professional, even if you’re running operations from your basement.
- It’s free for your callers. Don’t charge your callers for reaching out to you. Provide them with free calling, and it will boost your customer service.
- You’ll have a national presence. You won’t have national clout if you have a local number. If you want people to be buying your product or services from all over the country, you best sign up for a number that shows that.
Tips for choosing a number:
- Use your business name or an industry specific term! (Think 1-800-Flowers or 1-800-Contacts.)
- Keep it simple. Avoid odd or unique spellings.
- Try to choose a number that is easy to remember.
