The advantages of selecting a local vanity phone number

1. Inspire trust in your Business - Research has shown that consumers often feel more comfortable calling a business that has a local phone number because they believe a local business is more likely to provide personalized service. For example, a real estate agent with a local area code may be more attractive to prospects because their business number indicates an understanding of local nuances. Use a local number to reinforce that your business is a neighborhood business that prospects and customers can trust.

2. Compete with large companies - If the service your company offers would benefit from appearing as a neighborhood business, choosing a local phone number can give you a real edge over any non-local or national competitors.

3. Save money while your business grows - It can be expensive to set up brick and mortar stores in all the locations you want to conduct business in. To avoid the expense and inconvenience of opening additional office locations, you can get multiple local numbers with EasyLine. Your business can be national but still feel local.
