“A good phone number is an identity within itself. People may never know your business’s name, but they’ll remember you as the company that advertised 1-800-THEDIVORCE on Valentine’s Day. That sort of thing sticks with you.”
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
This Valentine’s Day, retailers around the country are scrambling to seize romantic toll-free numbers in a last-minute effort to bring in extra holiday business. According to a new report on Tele-Name, one of the nation’s leading phone name providers, the most desired vanity numbers are centered on the wedding industry, such as 1-800-ANNIVERSARY and 1-800-BRIDALS.
“Even though it seems late in the game, businesses can still make a huge impact on their holiday sales with a vanity number,” says Tele-Name CEO David Ashley. “Bridal shops, travel agencies and hotels see most of their traffic in the weeks following Valentine’s Day, so now is really the ideal time to start advertising.”
In addition to the flood of romance retailers, Ashley says, other types of businesses are seeking vanity numbers in an attempt to win over the millions of Americans who will be spending Valentine’s Day alone this year. Some of the most memorable registrations include 1-800-BACHELOR for an exotic dancing service and a law office that licensed 1-800-THEDIVORCE.
“I think these ironic numbers are a great idea,” the Tele-Name chief says. “A good phone number is an identity within itself. People may never know your business’s name, but they’ll remember you as the company that advertised 1-800-THEDIVORCE on Valentine’s Day. That sort of thing sticks with you.”
Since David Ashley founded Tele-Name in 1994, the company has grown into one of America’s premier phone number registrars. Under his guidance, Tele-Name has helped thousands of businesses across the country create profitable identities through the use of unique, memorable phone numbers. Their portfolio includes 1-800-BARTEND, 1-800-INSURANCE and 1-800-IMPORTS. For more information, please visit http://www.Telename.com or contact Jasmine Davis at 310-621-5048.
