Despite the variety of prefixes available, toll-free numbers are still referred to by the shorthand phrases “800 toll-free number” or “1-800 numbers”.

TOLL FREE NUMBER SERVICE GIVES YOUR SMALL BUSINESS A BIG PRESENCE
There was a time when being a small business meant being a local business, catering goods and services to a small regional area. The modern reality is that most businesses providing goods and services also offer their products online, expanding their customer base from their neighbors to the entire country. For any company selling their products or services online, a toll-free number is a powerful tool that gives callers confidence and a company instant credibility and legitimacy.
Toll-free numbers are also a useful tool for more traditional brick-and-mortar operations, whether they have one location or operations in multiple cities, states, or across the US/Canada border. No matter your business’s size a toll free number can give your callers a big impression. They have historically been an indicator of authority and professionalism and remain an easy way for even brand new companies to show authenticity.
It is also important to consider how to get your toll-free number out there and in front of potential customers. Ensuring that your number becomes synonymous with your business is vital. Promoting it everywhere possible – your website, your email signature, your business cards, etc – can make your toll-free number a natural extension of your brand. Obtaining a vanity toll-free number that spells out your business name, product, or industry can amplify that effect.
A toll-free number can only do so much of the work, however. The way your business answers the call when it comes in is critical to your success. That’s where a virtual answering solution can do much of the heavy lifting, answering every incoming call efficiently and professionally without busy signals or inappropriate phone etiquette. AccessDirect offers four highly customizable plans which can be tailored to meet your company’s specific needs – all of which include the option of a local or toll-free virtual phone number at no additional charge.

What You Should Look For When Choosing a Toll Free Service Provider
A toll-free number is only as good as the company that hosts it for you. Choosing a provider with a proven track record of reliability with consistent uptime and connectivity will ensure your callers never hear a busy signal or error message when calling your business. Affordability is crucial as a toll free number should enhance your bottom line, not worsen it. Functionality and what options are included should be considered, as a robust package of features increases the value a toll-free number can provide. A company focus on customer service is also vital for your peace of mind – after all, knowing that your business is in good hands is as important for your mental health as it is for your company’s financial health.
