The ultimate goal is obviously to get more new business – but you also want the maximum number possible of consumers (most of whom will not need you at that exact moment) to remember what services you offer and how to contact you. A great vanity […]
Aside from meeting someone face-to-face (which is not always practical) the best way to make a sale or get a new client or patient is the phone. Not emails, form submissions, text messages or tweets. Not YouTube videos or chat screens. On a phone call, ideas are shared clearly. You hear the other person’s tone […]

Hybrid phone number. Partial vanity. Whatever you call them, business phone numbers that mix letters and words are BAD for sales. Numbers like 888-423-PAIN just don’t work, and produce far worse results than just using a regular phone number. 800-HURT-911 and 866-4-Cookies are the rare exception, can you think of any other variations like these? […]
Once in a while you get a perfect shot. Today was the day for me. I was sitting in traffic on my way to work when I saw the best real world comparison that I’ve seen in a long time. Two trucks idling in traffic with thousands of eyes on them. One had a truly […]
Everyone knows MasterCard, but when they decided to launch their new line of credit cards called “Luxury Card” they made sure to use a vanity number to market it.

These numbers do nothing for the businesses that use them. This is because the consumer ends […]
