Different types of free VoIP phone numbers for business

Local numbers are associated with certain regions or cities. They’re great for businesses that are looking to serve a particular area.

With a local number, your customers won’t have to worry about long-distance charges when they call you, which can make them more likely to call your business.

Toll free phone numbers

You’ve probably seen these numbers – they start with 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 877 and 888. When someone calls a toll-free number, they don’t get charged for the call.

Many businesses use toll-free numbers to look bigger, boost their credibility and make it easier for customers to reach them without worrying about phone charges.

Vanity phone numbers

These are custom phone numbers tailored to your business, making them stand out from the crowd.

For example, a BBQ company in New York, might go for something like 1-800 NYC-BBQ.

Vanity numbers are memorable and help your business stick in people’s minds, which can give you an edge over your competitors.
