London, UK (PRWEB) December 27, 2005
The London based Internet Telephone provider, Voipfone, (http://www.voipfone.co.uk) today added 0800 number services to its widening range of telecommunication products.
Colin Duffy, Voipfone’s CEO, said “like all our product developments, this is a massive step away from traditional telephony -- there is no connection charge, no deposit, no set-up cost and no contract. It’s instant, automatic and self-service and also the lowest cost service in the market.”
“At £4.99 per month and calls charged at 3p per minute, I don’t think you’ll find a better value, easier to use 0800 service –-- anywhere.”
What are 0800 Numbers?
0800 numbers are powerful marketing tools as over 90% of consumers know that they can call them for free. (Source: Henley Centre).
- They remove the price barrier of a customer calling you
- They give you an advantage over your competitors (if you have one and they don’t, you have an edge)
- They increase your advertising response rate and attract new customers
- They convey a professional image
- They are portable and are yours for life - they don’t change if BT changes its number schemes or if you move location
- They ‘nationalise’ your company
- They provide useful information about your ad campaigns and promotions
By using separate 0800 numbers on each of your advertisements or by having a different number in each of the media you advertise in, you can monitor their effectiveness simply by looking at your free call statistics on-line, in real time, at any time. So, you can save money by choosing the adverts and media that produce the most effective results.
The numbers have all the same features as Voipfone’s other numbers so they can be diverted to Voicemail, put on hold with music, transferred to any number, used with the Virtual PBX and Call queuing services etc.
They can even be diverted to any other number. This means that you can use you normal telephone service if you prefer – you can simply divert the incoming calls to your existing telephone number. Typically this will be about 1p per minute to landlines in most of the Western World.
