How to Get a Toll-Free 800 Phone Number 1-2-3
Attract More Customers and Make More Sales with an 800 Number
An 800 phone number says, "Call me - I want to hear from you!". When you make it as easy as possible for
customers to connect with you, you automatically build trust. People also associate a toll-free phone
number with a professional, established real business and will give you more respect. You can generate more
leads and sales - and you don't even have to do the calling.
These days, toll-free phone numbers are extremely affordable, sometimes at identical calling rates of
regular long distance phone services. Many times you can get a month-to-month service without having to enter
into a long contract.
You can even get a "stand alone" toll free phone number, meaning you don't have to purchase an entire local
and long distance service package, which can be expensive. You can keep your current phone service, and simply
get a toll-free number by itself.
You can just attach your new toll free phone number to your existing phone service account, or you can
simply have your 800 number forward to a voicemail account.Choose a Toll-Free 800# Service

How to Record Your Voicemail Message
You want to start out by telling your listeners
specifically what you offer and how it will make their lives better. Keep this brief - you want to
generate interest and excitement so that the listener will request more information.
Keep in mind that the main purpose of your voicemail message is to get the prospect to leave their
contact information. Follow up and give them incentive by offering a free gift, like a 'how-to' report
or an ebook containing information of value to them.
Keep your voice upbeat, like you are talking to a friend about something really interesting and exciting.
This will keep your listener's interest.
You can use your toll-free phone number to build customer trust, increase response rate and grow sales in
many different areas of your business. The more ways you use it, the more it can help your profits.
Include your number on all company stationary and literature, business cards, mailers and postcards, online and offline advertising, yellow page listings, signage, your
website, promotional items such as
pens, mugs, t-shirts, caps, etc. Advertising a toll-free phone numbers just gives customers another
incentive to call you and buy from you - and it's cheap!
The Downside of Owning a Toll-Free Number
Obviously, it's the cost. You pay for all incoming phone calls. This cost may be minimal, but it's more
expensive than customers paying for their own calls to you.
Investing in a toll-free number is a risk that entrepreneurs take - they hope that their small cost will pay
off in larger profits. That said, there is no guarantee of higher profits.
Therefore, it's a good idea to get a toll-free number where you pay month-to-month. You aren't locked in for
a long period of time, so you can cancel at any time without a penalty. By minimizing your risk, you still
give yourself the opportunity to increase your profits without having to pay a lot of money up front.
