With a vanity phone number, you are telling potential customers who you are and what you do. If your business is a nail salon, you can opt for custom 800 numbers like 1-800-NAILSPA or perhaps 1-800-NY-NAILS for a geographically targeted approach.
Just make sure to keep it simple so it’s easy to remember. You don’t want to confuse anyone with an unusual spelling. Another option is to use an easy-to-dial phone number, which uses a set of patterned or repeated digits for easy recall and, well, dialing. You often see this on billboards and newspaper ads (e.g. 1-888-222-3333).
Customers are inclined to purchase products or services from brands they’re familiar with. It doesn’t necessarily mean large enterprises. Think of a local auto repair shop that had their name and business vanity number printed on a vehicle. Now imagine regularly seeing the vehicle on your commute to work. When your engine breaks down in the future, you’ll probably see yourself heading to that auto mechanic’s shop on impulse.
For business owners, it’ll be easier to track the performance of your marketing efforts. Vanity toll-free numbers allow you to create user extensions for particular campaigns. You can get one vanity number each for print, radio, TV, etc. So when a potential customer calls a specific extension number, you already know which campaign is at work. For websites, it means increased conversions. Keep in mind that when customers remember your name, the probability of them purchasing from you increases by a significant margin.
Gain credibility the moment a caller hears your welcome greeting. In keeping with its goal of providing a professional phone system, RingCentral partnered with Snap Recordings to bring your custom professional greetings to life. Choose from industry-leading voice talents speaking different languages or dialects, create a custom script, and go live in no time. Packages start at a minimal fee of $50.
More than a professionally-recorded greeting, a customer or partner calling your vanity number will be guided by a sophisticated phone system that allows them to navigate with ease. That alone says a lot about your professionalism.
Identify the caller before you even accept the call. Caller ID is displayed for an incoming call, allowing for a more efficient call handling. With knowledge of caller data, you are in a better position to route calls and create answering rules. Apart from call routing, you can also leverage other included features like call forwarding, auto-attendant, call transfer, etc.
Your vanity number can be used not just to take business calls but also to send and receive faxes. You can do this using your RingCentral for Desktop app or mobile app. Just attach the files and send a fax using FaxOut. For incoming faxes, you’ll never have to worry about missing an important message because everything is managed by the service provider.
All the abovementioned benefits allow you to deliver the highest level of service, which results in happy customers. Get your vanity 800 numbers now from RingCentral, easily the best among vanity phone number providers.
