Tips For Finding An Unforgettable Vanity Number

To select the right vanity phone number for your business, consider the following points:

Be Specific

Check your company name and the message that defines exactly what your business offers. If your name won't work or simply isn't available, focus your choice on a number that communicates, clearly and efficiently, what your business is about. Exploring our number database by industry is a great place to begin to brainstorm as you start your search.

Get Creative

Widen your search if your first choice vanity isn't available. Many industries are highly competitive and companies may have already snapped up several prime vanity numbers to dominate the field. The good news is that a little creativity goes a long way and you can still secure a memorable, effective number in the most competitive industry. Make a list of words that cover the main areas associated with your business. Use that list to restart your search from another angle if others simply aren't working out.

Aim for Simple and Memorable

Consumers usually recall number sequences that are linear (like 4,5,6,7) or repetitive (like 555, 5050 or 5000). As you select your vanity number, focus on those that are simple to say and quickly committed to memory. Think about the numbers that you remember on billboards and TV ads and why they stuck in your mind.

Look Local and National

Great 800 numbers are harder and harder to find, so it might be necessary to search outside of this conventional range. Look at local versions of the number you want. It may not have been claimed for a specific region and you can often get exactly the same benefits – perhaps more – with a local dial.

Maintain Harmony Across Different Locations

If your business has several locations, you might want to track performance at each of them. This means that multiple numbers need to be in play, so consider whether you need to keep the overall package of numbers in sync with one another, or if it's acceptable for each location to bring its own ideas to the vanity number that will represent them.

Time will help you find the perfect vanity number

Most of all, never get frustrated! If your first search doesn't strike gold, know that there are millions of numbers available and there's definitely a great one waiting for your company. Simply try out some of the other ideas above and come at your search from another angle. Of course, we're always ready to help business owners and marketers with vanity number ideas to help find the perfect phone number for your business.
