For businesses, featuring a 0808 number could be the finishing touch that any sales campaign needs. If a caller had to pick between a 0808 number that’s free to call and make an enquiry, or a number that costs them money to call, you can be certain most would only call the freephone number.
For businesses that wish to compete with larger competitors, an 0808 number can help mask the true size of an organisation. A geographic number limits the reach of a business – some customers may only wish to deal with somebody very local, and a mobile number can often indicate the business is a sole trader.
0808 numbers from alphaTALK offer great value for money. There aren’t any long-term contracts to be locked into, offering flexibility to introduce 0808 numbers as and when they’re needed. Call statistics and fully itemised bills are provided to assist with trading decisions.

How can my business benefit from 0808 numbers?
Businesses can benefit from 0808 numbers in different ways.
0808 numbers are free for callers to use, so they are regularly used by businesses to encourage potential customers to make enquiries.
0808 numbers are also useful for disguising how large or small a business truly is. A sole trader that wishes to appear larger to compete with rivals can use an 0808 number for an added touch of professionalism.
alphaTALK will provide itemised bills with call statistics – these can be used to measure campaign effectiveness.
0808 numbers can be diverted to landline telephone and mobile phones – never miss a sales call again when you’re out of the office. They’re portable, so simply take the number with you if the business relocates and avoid expensive re-printing costs for advertising material.
