You’re much better off asking out single people than married people.

By Bill Quimby on April 25, 2023

Although you may think he or she is the only one for you, and you simply HAVE TO HAVE THEM… there are always more options than you realize when you’re focused on “THE ONE!”The saying about there being more fish in the sea applies to that perfect phone number too.

I can’t tell you how many times someone comes to me determined to track down a number that’s NOT available, determined to make that unavailable number theirs. They’ll completely ignore hundreds of good numbers that are available to pursue and focus on the one that isn’t available. I try to explain that it’s like asking out a married person. They never understand how much harder it is to make that unavailable number available. They are blindly optimistically assuming that because the person doesn’t answer the phone from their area at the moment or they’re not using it for a large business, that it must be worth more to them than the people who aren’t using it much, and therefore must be negotiable.

Unfortunately that almost never goes the way they hope it will, because the truth is that it’s much harder to do the equivalent of getting someone to leave the one they’re with to be with you. That’s why I say, “You’re always better asking out single (available) people than married people. ”I understand wanting to pursue that exciting number but when it says IN USE, that means NOT AVAILABLE.It doesn’t mean try harder.

That then leads to the next point in this conversation, “Don’t let not being able to get the perfect number stop you from getting a good number.”

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

This is the fourth time Ive used TollFreeNumbers.com for a vanity number. For one, their vanity number search function is among the easiest and most powerful and, two, their prices are simple and fair. Sure, theres other options out there. But, if you want an honest, fast and straightforward solution that doesnt have any gotchas - then TollFreeNumbers.com is the company to use. Highly recommended!

Great job. This normally painful process was made very easy by your provisioning system, clear instructions, easy to understand documents, quick port and very fair price. We will be back for more toll fee numbers.

It has been a pleasure working with Bill, Rita and Hope. They have been very accommodating and helped walk me thru the process of obtaining a number. Would highly recommend 1 800Marketer to everyone.
