Best ways to choose the right 1300 number
In this time where we are spoilt for choice, we still have to remember that our choices can either make or break us. The saying goes true when it comes to business. You, as a business owner, have to choose what is right for your business. And these business choices– whether big or small – can really make an impact.
1300 numbers are just one of those things that can benefit your business. Having a 1300 number can boost your market presence, makes your number more memorable than the standard number, can lend legitimacy or evoke that ‘big business’ feel, just to name a few. But how do you choose the right 1300 number?
What will you use it for?
Is your main purpose for acquiring a 1300 number to better manage your calls? Then Free Numbers can work for you. These are 1300 numbers which are random and has no pattern. Providers such as 1300 Numbers Australia have a list of such numbers for you to choose from.
On the other hand, if you need a 1300 number to advertise your business or service, choose one that has a very catchy pattern to make it memorable. Smart numbers are the best kind of 1300 numbers to use for branding and marketing. 1300 smart numbers can spell out your business name; can also spell out the service or product that your provide (1300 BIGTUB); or can have very high recall with a catchy pattern such as 1300- 888888 (we call these premium numbers).
Owning or Leasing?
Another thing to consider when choosing a 1300 number is ownership. Do you just want to simply lease out that number or do you want to own that number?
Ideally – it is always best that you own the Rights of Use (ROU) of that number (as the Australian Communications and Media Authority owns the numbers). As your business grows, you can keep the same number that you had when you started. If you have purchased a smartnumber, then you secure the rights to lease it to a 3rd party.
If you lease the numbers – whether normal issue 1300 number or Smartnumbers- you can only keep it for up to 3 years if left disconnected. Owning and activating the number is always the better option as it becomes another valuable business asset of yours.
The right provider
Once you’ve picked the 1300 number that’s perfect for you pick out the right provider. Partnering with the right provider will be of great benefit as they can give you the best options – the right plan and payment scheme; plan flexibility; and even add-on services that can really help you make the most out of your 1300 number to meet all your business needs.
So remember, 1300 numbers are great to have in your arsenal. They boost your business, increase your exposure to the market, and helps make your business be more efficient and productive, thus giving you and your customers a great experience with your business.
