Easy to recall. This is important in
a printed ad or 30 second TV or radio commercial
spot. Let's say you watched two TV commercials for
a towing service. The first
one said to call 1-877-225-5869 and the second
one said to call 1-877-CALL-TOW. Which one are you going to remember?
2. It's cost effective. Pricing starts at $69.00
per month for your market area and discounts are
available for multiple market areas.
3. They dramatically increase advertising
response rates. According to Michael J. Motto Advertising
in New Providence, N.J., a study found that radio
ads using a vanity number drew 14 times more calls
than a numeric 800 number.
4. You can advertise like the "big guys." Do
you think that UPS or FedEx would advertise vanity
numbers like 1-800-PICK-UPS and 1-800-GO-FEDEX if
it didn't work?
5. People don't use the Yellow Pages much
anymore. If they do pull out the phone book, they could be
sidetracked to an ad for your competitor. That's
why it's much more desirable to advertise a vanity
number that can be easily remembered and spread by
Corporate branding. You own exclusive rights to
the number for your market area. Advertise it according
to your own marketing strategies so you can become
known for the service you provide.
