Using a word that relates to your name, product or service is far easier to remember than a number and once seen or heard provides total recall that a number alone cannot do.
Couple a name with an 0800 telephone code and you have a highly memorable and effective way for customers to respond to your direct marketing initiatives. Alternative codes include 0845 and 0345 depending on your requirements.
Phone names make great brand names too as they are not only a phone number but they are descriptive of your business. When you add the matching domain name you have a unique and powerful branding solution unlike other new brand names that have no resemblance to their offering whatsoever.
Whether you are looking for a short term campaign burst or a longer term strategy, a license from Phone Names can give you the right solution.
Popular in a number of countries around the World, the phone name concept is used in a variety of industry sectors.
