0800 and 0808 numbers cost your caller nothing and could dramatically increase the number of contacts you receive. In fact 61% of UK consumers are more likely to call a company with a freephone number. Call charges to you start at from 3.5ppm with volume discounts available upon request. In the light of recent Ofcom changes to 0870 numbers, 0800 numbers are becoming more popular for clients who put sales generation at the top of their list.
Customers can be put off by any charges, even those of a local telephone call. By offering them an 0800 number, you could dramatically increase the number of business contacts you receive.
Research shows that switching to an 0800 number can as much as triple the number of calls received, and that consumers equate it with reliability. If the competition are using 0800 number services and you’re not, chances are you’re losing out.
