3 reasons your business needs an 0800 number

3 reasons your business needs an 0800 number

Whether your business is a UK giant or a small, family business there are many reasons to consider using an 0800 freephone number.

0800 Freephone

Free to call from landlines and mobiles

There’s no catch. 0800 numbers are 100% free to call from all mobiles and landlines.

0800 is the most recognisable freephone number in the UK, making things clear and simple for customers wanting to call you.

You may have heard about a surcharge when someone calls your 0800 number from a mobile, with Tamar Telecommunications this won’t affect you as we have decided to absorb the charge for all our customers!

Generate more enquiries

By using an 0800 number you are making it as easy as possible for customers to contact you. Not only are they memorable numbers but because they are free to call, your customers have nothing to lose by picking up the phone. If potential customers are comparing businesses side by side, an 0800 number may be the deciding factor on which business they call. In a competitive market this is a fantastic way to generate more enquiries and thus, more sales.

Try using 0800 numbers on your advertising to encourage more calls and make your ads more profitable. You can also make use of our free Call Statistics feature which will show you how many calls have come in from that ad, making it an easy decision to advertise there again if it has gone well, or save costs if it hasn’t.

Inspire customer confidence

0800 numbers have no geographic location, unlike our Landline Numbers . This is great if you want to give your business a national presence. These numbers are instantly recognisable in the UK and give your business a professional and trustworthy image from the off.

Compare these two work vans for example. Identical in all aspects except the phone number. Which one looks more professional? The 0800 number is also much more memorable for customers who just see it for a few seconds.

0800 Vans Comparison Small

0800 numbers are used by businesses large and small. Be it for sales, customer service or a memorable number for your advertising, they are a great way to get customers on side straight away, simply giving them a free and easy number to call.
