Every business is aware of the importance that is attached to the ability of customers to get in touch with you whenever they have a requirement that falls within your business domain. This need requires customers to be able to commit your brand and contact details to memory without really making an effort about it. This feat is being made possible through the harnessing of special phone numbers that are provided by telephone companies.
What are the options?
There are a number of products that are provided by telephone companies to cater for the various needs of business. Some of them are:
- Vanity numbers
- Million numbers

Repeaters on the other hand derive their relevance from consisting of repeated numbers that makes them easy to recall. Take for example a number such as 425- 555-5555. Such types of numbers make it easy for customers to make you their first option due to the simplicity with which they can recall your contacts.
The fact is the same for other products such as million numbers and others which are true to their names. Million numbers make use of a series of zero’s to achieve simplicity and uniqueness. An example of a million telephone number would be 214- 800-0000.
