In just a few easy steps, you can be on your way to utilizing a vanity number for your business.
Looking to acquire a vanity number for your business but unsure how to start the process?
Look no further!
Vanity numbers, also referred to as custom phone numbers, are easy-to-remember, toll-free numbers. Vanity numbers start with an 800 prefix (800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, & 833 are the currently available prefixes) and either spell a word, phrase, or have a repeating number frequency.
As a Vanity number provider, it is easy to lease a custom phone number for your business with CallSource. All you have to do is follow the simple steps below.
Decide on number options that you want. Do you want a specific word or phrase? Do you have a few word options? Or would you rather have a repeater number? Decide what you will be searching for beforehand so that you do not get overwhelmed when it comes time to choose your number.
Count out the number of letters/numbers that are in the word or phrase you’d like in your custom vanity number.
You will need a minimum of 7 digits (after the prefix) in your number – so make sure that the word/phrase you choose is at least 7 characters long. If it is not, you must be willing to have a combination of numbers with your word.
Ex: Using the word “DENTIST” works perfectly because 888-DENTIST has 7 digits, so no extra numbers are needed. However, if you want the word “TOOTH,” your number may look more like 877-55-TOOTH.
Words or phrases over 7 characters also work in a vanity number. However, it is best to try not to exceed 10 digits as it may be harder to remember. Also, keep in mind that whatever numbers are dialed after the 7th number do not matter in the actual typing of the digits into a phone keypad.
Search for the custom phone number that you desire!
CallSource’s vanity search tool is easy to use. Simply search for the keywords that you choose along with any other filters you may want to apply. Do you care about the placement of the word, such as if numbers may come before or after the keyword? Do you have a specific prefix preference?
Speak to a representative to talk about pricing and availability. Some numbers may be available only in specific states or areas, while others are available nationwide. Determine which is best for your business and then move forward in achieving the perfect vanity number that you need.
