The New Year presents us all with an opportunity to make a fresh start, try new things and embrace change.
Here at Windsor Telecom we think now is the perfect time to think about the business number you use (if you currently have one) and evaluate whether you are getting the best from it.
We are going to showcase for you some of our most popular business numbers and explain how these can help you.
08 numbers are most commonly referred to as Freephone numbers as these can be free to call from either a mobile or a landline; at the moment costs do vary from mobiles but from 2015 theses numbers will be free to call no matter where you are calling from.
The ‘free’ elements of these numbers provide businesses with a powerful marketing message to use and present a competitive advantage over other businesses.
They can also help to boost enquiries and sales as customers may be more inclined to phone if the call does not cost them; with research showing that a Freephone number can actually increase your response rates by up to 185%!
0845 numbers are used by a wide array of businesses of varying sectors and sizes.
These numbers are the preferred choices by thousands of organisations as they are extremely inexpensive to run, with no set-up or connection charges.
0845 numbers are also great for helping to increase the reach and stature of a company, as they help to improve their presence nationwide which is especially important for a local company that might want to trade or attract more of a national customer base.
On the other end of the scale is 01/02 numbers, which help to improve a company’s presence locally.
At Windsor Telecom we can get you a number with an area code for any town or city within the UK, allowing you to appear as a local business no matter where you are trading.
0300 and 0303 numbers are only available to the public sector, charities and non-profit organisations.
They were originally designed to help improve public confidence in calling public services; which is why they cost no more than your local rate to call. Call costs for these set of numbers have remained transparent and they are now not only trusted by the public but the official regulator (Ofcom) also highly recommends them for the great benefits they deliver to an organisation.
0333 and 0330 numbers are some of the UK’s most popular business phone numbers.
This is in large due to their low costs to call (they cost the same amount as a call to a 01 or 02 number) whilst still providing organisations with the exactly sane benefits as a 08 number.
At Windsor Telecom we have worked with over 6,500 UK businesses and organisations helping to make us one the UK’s leading suppliers of memorable business numbers.
We not only provide business with numbers they can count on, but also vital inbound call solutions and features to help organisations utilise their phone number efficiently.
