13 numbers are a powerful marketing tool for business. The benefits of 13 numbers include:
- 13 numbers have six digits and are easy to remember.
- 13 numbers have an added benefit for the business owner as calls that originate and terminate within the same local area will have a free talk time period of 15 minutes.
- 13 numbers are charged at a low untimed call rate.
- Can increase inbound sales calls.
- Gives your business a professional image.
- Enables your business to increase hours of operation and lead capture.
- Ensure potential business is never lost.
Which is best?
A 13, 1300 or 1800 number?
The following key factors need to be considered when choosing which type of number is right for your business.
- How many calls do you currently take per month?
- Are your calls generally from local lines or mobiles?
- Are they answered on a mobile or local line?
- How long are the calls? If they are generally under 15 minutes a 1300 number is perfect as there is no cost to your business for this call.
- Is it important for your business to have free call numbers?
- Do you need the competitive advantage of free calls for customers?
- Is the phone word that you are after available in each of the 3 formats? You are better off getting a high quality 1300 number that matches your brand than a 1800 number that doesn’t quite fit.
