A toll-free number is a phone number that provides your callers with a convenient way to reach you without being charged for the call. 800 numbers are available in several three-digit area codes such as 888, 877, 866 and 855.
There's no better way to connect with your callers than with your own toll free number and QuickPBX virtual phone system. Adding a toll free number to your business adds credibility to your business by conveying a nationwide reach.
1.) Adds credibility to your brand
2.) It costs your caller nothing to call you, reducing barriers to purchasing products online
3.) Gives your business a national presence
4.) Once you buy a toll-free number, it is yours to keep. You aren't tied down to any one provider so you can port your number wherever you go.
Not all countries can call toll free numbers, so it's best to also have a local number if you do business outside of the US and Canada.
If you're running a business that depends upon users who live in the area, then you may want to choose a local number and here is why:
Local numbers identify your location and certain area codes make it obvious where your business is based, which can be important depending on what you sell. If people that live in California see that you're based in California, they'll be more likely to buy from you. Sometimes customers prefer if a business seems local.
Moreover it is more difficult to receive international calls with a toll free number because calls are paid for by the recipient. This isn't a problem with local numbers.
QuickPBX offers local numbers from almost every area code of the US.
