Best Phone Numbers provides many phone numbers that use repetition (like 312-888-8888, one of the vanity numbers currently available) or spell out the name of a company. Customers consist largely of attorneys, car dealerships, limousine and taxi companies, insurance companies and ad agencies

“With so much competition in today’s marketplace, it’s essential to find a way to make your business stand out,” says Darryl Ferdinand, CEO of BestPhoneNumbers.com. “Vanity numbers are easy to remember, so they are key to generating more calls and increasing business.”

Though BestPhoneNumbers.com also licenses 1-800 numbers, Ferdinand feels there is a growing movement toward local numbers, as people become more frustrated with calling customer service centers overseas.
