What is an 888 number? How do toll-free phone numbers work?

Icon for Toll-Free Business Phone Numbers Available

Toll-free numbers, such as 888 numbers, are telephone numbers that can be dialed from landlines with no charge to the person placing the call. Such numbers allow callers to reach businesses out of the area without being charged a long-distance fee for the call. Toll-free service has traditionally provided callers with a free and convenient way to contact businesses.

Today, toll-free phone numbers are not really necessary since most national calls are free and most people have unlimited calling plans. However, the perception of toll-free numbers as belonging to established, well-run, national organizations persists.

Should I get a local or toll-free phone number for my small business?

Icon for Should I Choose a Local or Toll-Free Phone Number for My Business

Whether your goal is to achieve a local presence with a local area code or an established national presence with a toll-free prefix, we can help you achieve that goal.

Local business phone numbers are great if your goal is to convey a local presence. A local number gives your customers confidence that they’re dealing with a preferred local business.

Again, toll-free numbers convey a national presence (or the appearance of a national presence 😉). They are perceived as belonging to larger, more established, well-run businesses. Toll-free numbers can also instill initial trust and credibility.
