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

I have to report to you, sir, that somehow you were able to work a miracle. First Communications called us yesterday to notify us that our 800 numbers are working again. After all the trouble I went through with them, I was pretty much ready to give up, but your call did the trick. I can't thank you enough. Is there anything that we can do for you, Bill?

I thought professional standards in this country had died until I did business with this company. Feedback is wonderful. Attention to questions asked = A++; Professionalism = A++; I would not attempt twice to challenge any company or individual who tried to report something other than positive about the people that make up this company. I believe in faith and it was through good old-fashioned praying and faith that I was lead to do business with Bill and Rita so far.

This is my first experience with getting an 800-number, and your site was the easiest to understand, had the best price, and the personal service you provided all along the way was a very pleasant surprise. The manual you send which described the porting process was simple yet thorough, which was a huge help in ultimately getting the number up and running.
