Many companies do not consider
the telephone to be an important partof a business decision. After all, run-ning a business – especially start-up
companies – is hard work, and there
are many things to consider on the
road. How important can a telephone
number be?If the telephone number just hap- pened to be a vanity number, it mayas well cost the company its success – or so part of it.
Vanity numbers can make a big
difference in a company’s day to
day operations and prots; making it
quite worthy of careful consideration
for businesses of all sizes. Regard

In the right hands,it is a great advantage that can helpdevelop corporate accounts thatotherwise would be completelyimpossible to obtain.The best performance of a vanitynumbers come from the incorpora-tion of other technologies. With ahigh quality telephone system, for example, small businesses may seem
bigger than they really are. More

when it comes to telephone trafc

markets.Any company that does not take
advantage of their toll free number is resigned to receiving less businessopportunities and less overall inter-est of business partners and other
