Avoid Renting or Leasing phone numbers

By Bill Quimby on July 18, 2022

When I first started in the Tollfree business a lot of people were renting vanity numbers. I used to have to warn people about it all the time but you don’t see that “scheme” as much any more. But I just got an email from someone suggesting I should do it with him. He was all excited because he claimed excitedly that he was going to make 2 million dollars per month leasing thousands of 800 numbers. I don’t think I have to say that nobody makes a million dollars a month marketing numbers.

It goes without saying that you should never advertise a rented or leased number. You wouldn’t advertise and build your business on a rented domain name for the same reason. It’s too tempting to take advantage of you. Even if they seem nice or professional it’s not a good idea. There’s always better options if you are creative.

And good luck Richard, I really hope you make your two million dollars a month.

We've helped tens of thousands of customers get great numbers over the past 25+ years

Toll Free Numbers was incredibly easy to work with. Bill and Rita were personable, available, timely and walked me through the process, and answered all of our questions. It was great receiving reminder emails to switch carriers after my initial 30 days. Will definitely come back to them again in the future for another number when we need it!
