Why

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.
