The importance of a phone number…

Your telephone number is often the first piece of information a customer will try to remember about your business.  A memorable landline number makes your business stand out, helps build and improve your brand and increase customer engagement.

Have you ever driven or walked past an advert, with every intention of calling the company only to come across a mobile number that’s super difficult to remember? Was it 07917? 07197? Or 07719? And then it is too late.

This is where a memorable number can help… standing out from the crowd and making it easy for people to contact you can be the difference between the next large job, or gaining an important new customer.  Using a memorable phone number on your website, business cards, vehicle signage, and everything else means you’re invested in making sure you’ve got a memorable brand.  For example, 0161 821 1000 is unquestionably more memorable than a forgettable mobile number!

Virtually Local have many outstanding Gold and Platinum graded memorable numbers including standout patterns such as 0000 or 1234.

A common practice in the USA and becoming more popular in the UK is incorporating a word into your phone number so people don’t even have to remember a number.  For example, you could have 01545 625276, but at the same time, that also can be 01545 6 ALARM – by using the letters on a phone keypad, you can incorporate keywords into your phone number in the same way you’d write a message on an traditional phone.
