The long term value of Vanity Numbers

By Bill Quimby on October 13, 2023

Very few other things you get or purchase for your business not only last but become even more valuable as you use them. You’ll probably invest in a lot of equipment and supplies to start any business. Every business has expenses but almost none of them last forever. Your vanity number can be an asset like real estate that is always valuable.

The right vanity number not only lasts indefinitely, but it becomes more valuable and more memorable, the more you advertise it. Vanity numbers are often sold off when a business goes out of business because they’re not less valuable after they’re used or advertised, they’re MORE valuable after they’re advertised.

A lot of businesses contact us looking to acquire the toll free numbers of competitors that go out of business, even if they’re not vanity numbers, because they continue to get callers looking for their services. Misdials is a whole business in and of itself, but it’s easy to see that you get a lot more long term calls when your number is more memorable.

A memorable vanity number can be an asset that not only holds its value but goes up in value over time. It not only increases your sales, but it also increases the value of your business. Having a domain name is expected and all your competitors have domain names, getting one doesn’t give you much of an advantage. But all your competitors probably don’t have vanity numbers and the advantage that gives you doesn’t just let you keep up with your competitors it puts you ahead of them.

So don’t look at the cost of a vanity number as an expense, it’s an investment in your business that will only increase over time and will probably last longer than anything else you do this month for your business. That’s also why you want to be thorough in your number search and work with someone that understands the importance of the right brand name number.

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

I look forward to getting my new 877 number next week. I took a little time to research you a little more and found that your clients agree that you are great!, a man of your word and that the product is for real. It's sad that we live in a time that we have to be so careful because there are many out there whose offers don't actually match what you get. But you are not that way. I will be getting my new number next week, after exploring some this weekend on the best service provider (per your instructions). I have found in one of your blogs where I can look and do some comparative shopping for a good rate

Thank you so much! This was truly the number I wanted! I've been dealing with a lot of services online today putting my company together, and yours was by far the best experience and most responsive team. Not to mention, the most I-got-exactly-what-I-was-promised" result. Thank you again! I'll be referring your business to anyone who will listen."

'I purchased an 800 number from Tollfreenumbers.com 3 months ago and have been happy with the number I own and the service provided. My 800 number dials a SkypeIn number and it works like a charm. The key question to ask when signing up for an 800 number is 'can I transfer the number to another carrier in the future and if so, what will it cost?' What I discovered during the course of my research is that most if not all other sellers do not hand over ownership of the 800 number and subsequently make it very difficult/expensive to transfer to another carrier at a later date. By then you are attached to the 800 number (which is on your marketing materials etc.) and you are stuck. With numbers purchased from Tollfreenumbers.com you own the number so there are no hidden penalties for transferring it. Thank you for explaining this to me Bill.'
