Irvine, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2005
Small businesses interested in getting a toll free 800 number anytime in the future should consider doing it now because the availability of 800 numbers is near the brink of being completely sold out.
During the last few years, the amount of toll free 800 numbers that have been registered has grown exponentially. This is in part due to the lower rates and favorable pricing structures offered by toll free companies such as http://www.tollfreenumber.org which offers a low-cost alternative to toll free services for small businesses that would not normally be capable of affording the high rates of other telecommunications companies for the same service.
New toll free prefixes such as 888, 877, & 866 were added to try to ease the strain, but those are being taken as fast as they are being offered. New toll free options are being considered but critics say they may be ineffective because the new toll free numbering system would remain virtually unknown by the majority of the USA for years. This would damper the marketing efforts of small businesses that are forced to use the new system.
Research has shown increases in sales up to 600% for businesses advertising a toll free number rather than their standard local number because it immediately establishes rapport, instills trust in your product or services, and creates a larger corporate image. When businesses are forced to use the new system, potential customers may not be aware that the system is actually toll free.
Small businesses owners should contact http://www.tollfreenumber.org for information on how to establish an account and to lock in your toll free 800 number before they are no longer available.
