Use a Toll Free Number to Drive Home Buyers to Your Properties
Selling properties is, thanks to the economic crisis still making life difficult for many families, getting harder by the day. Being tied to a comparatively small target audience as a result of having a local contact number can make things even harder. The last thing people want to do is make expensive long distance calls to find a property or get some details for a property they may be interested in.
Using a Toll Free Number
Providing a toll free number interested customers can call for details is the perfect answer to this problem. Suitable for home owners wishing to sell their house, small and large estate agents - in short anyone dealing in property - these numbers will allow consumers to call anywhere without incurring huge charges, making it far more likely for them to pick up the phone and make that call.
Where to get a Toll Free Number
It is possible to obtain a toll free number from a host of virtual phone system companies offering toll free, local and vanity numbers online. Vanity numbers, by the way, are numbers where a toll free number is noted by using the letters associated with each number, which often makes them more memorable. A real estate agent in Florida may, for example, choose the vanity number 1-800-HOME-FL, 1-800-NEST-FL or 1-800-FL-HOME. In addition to the actual numbers, these companies also offer a wide range of related services, including extension numbers and voicemail options.
In any case, it is typically possible to have a list of extensions. These extensions can be recorded to provide details for a list of homes on offer. The toll free number and extensions can then be advertised in various real estate venues and publications such as classified ads, guides, information leaflets, newspapers or sign riders. Interested customers can then call the extension provided for any one of these properties and listen to the recorded details at their leisure, without fear of running up huge phone bills.
The same - or additional - extensions may also be used to allow customers to leave a message, perhaps with an enquiry about a property they are interest in. Extensions and voice mail facilities do not only make life easier for consumers, they are also excellent for promoting a company. The presence of these facilities automatically gives consumers the impression of dealing with large companies, immediately inspiring greater confidence and increasing the chances of actually getting the deal. The reputation of a company can therefore be enhanced by having toll free or vanity phone numbers and extensions.
The provision of a toll free number and extensions where individuals can find the details they are looking for free of charge will ultimately drive a much higher number of potential buyers to any of the listed properties than any other form of advertising can possibly achieve. The inevitable success resulting from this additional interest will easily make the minimal fees charged for these services worth it.
