After originating in the US, the first FREE TO CALL 0800 numbers were introduced to the UK (by BT) in 1985. These days there are many more types of numbers available, but do you know what they all are and what they offer…..?
The 3 most popular types of Non-Geographical Numbers:
0800 FREE to call telephone numbers remove all barriers to customers contacting you, attracting three times as many calls as standard geographic numbers!
0845 Extremely cost effective for number owners and callers also benefit from a local rated call, wherever they are within the UK.
0871 Substantial revenue share is available for number owners, callers pay between 6p and 10p per minute
There are many benefits of using these types of telephone numbers:
- The absence of a local area code means that the telephone number gives a National rather than Local impression and makes for a more professional business image.
- They can be diverted to any number (even a mobile number) and callers do not need to be aware. This is great if you are often away from your business or even better if you run your business on the go!!
- The number that your virtual line is diverted to can be changed at fairly short notice, so you never need to be unavailable
