BestPhoneNumbers.com is licensing 87 phone numbers that all end in 800-0000, or “8 Million.” Each phone number is located in a different area code, spanning most major markets in the United States. Some of the numbers that are being licensed include 312-800-0000 in Chicago, 215-800-0000 in Philadelphia, 305-800-0000 in Miami, 407-800-0000 in Orlando and dozens more.

 

In fact, according to a 2007 study by Creative Broadcast Concepts (CBC) Inc., radio ads that featured vanity phone numbers attracted 58% more calls than ads with regular phone numbers, clearly demonstrating the effectiveness of a memorable phone number.

Businesses that have vanity toll-free numbers that are heavily promoted in various forms of advertising will find the toll-free texting capability particularly appealing.
 

These new services allow businesses to leverage text messaging’s burgeoning popularity as the go-to form of communication for many consumers. And they want to do that from their own devices, not from one of many over-the-top messaging applications that are now available.
