A good telephone service should begin with a number that is easy to remember. If, for example, a potential customer or a hotel guest is looking for something from you in a hurry, he or she should not be scratching around for your number. He or she could lose patience and then simply give up. And when you think about it, it is business as usual where hotel telephones are concerned. And this should be pretty much the same where all other services are concerned.
What do you think? Don’t you think this is a good idea? Doesn’t it make sense to give your folks a useful and handy number to remember? Of course, no one is suggesting that you now ask for a number that begins with 1 two and 3. Not only would that be highly impractical, it’s probably not allowed either. No matter who is providing you with the telephone network (private companies in the main), you’re likely still going to be working with a local or national network.
The network already has its set area or dialing code. That, surely, is already easy to remember, especially if you’re well and truly established. And it’s like this too. It’s like a lot of folks are doing with their private auto number plates. Provided that the state’s licensed code is inserted, drivers are able to customize their plates. It is usual for them to personalize these with a mixture of digits and letters of the alphabet.
The customized number selected is usually a sentimental one, and if it’s to be business as usual then you’re going to commercialize your number. It should be something closely linked to your company’s existing name and line of business. It should be as user-friendly as possible.
