Phone names are 13, 1300 and 1800 numbers that spell the name of the business through the alphanumeric keypad. They're a fantastic way of continually promoting the business name through the company's telephone number. Rather than remembering a sequence of numbers, customers only have to remember the business name.
The numbers are sold by ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority) which manages and administers all the numbers. Business 1300 offers a FREE Search and Advice service to help you find the right phone name for your business. We'll search the ACMA database for an available number that best suits your needs, and then if you decide to go ahead, purchase it on your behalf.
Business 1300 helped us find a fantastic smart number for our business. The process was seamless and very quick. We recommend 1300 phone names for any business looking to stand out from the crowd and reach out to their customers.
Phone Names Are 5x More Memorable
A phone name is 5 times more memorable than an ordinary number and will make your business stand out from the crowd and get remembered. Promote your business name every time a customer dials or looks at your phone number.
Imagine Every Time Someone Dials Your Number They're Also Dialling Your Business Name
There are many examples of phones names. Numbers like 1300 HILTON, 1300 PROGRESSIVE and 1300 WILSON are just some of the numbers used by leading companies to promote their name and ensure their number gets remembered. And if your exact business name is not available, there are other ways to incorporate it into a 1300 or 1800 number. A popular way is to put the number 4 before the name. For example, 1300 4 WILSON may be a good option. And even though the number is longer than 10 digits, it will still get remembered and the call will connect. When a number is longer than 10 digits, it simply means that the call connects before the full sequence is finished.

Some of the examples are: 13 QUIT (Quit Line), 1300 LOADED (Loaded Technologies), 1300 OFFICE (Office Works), 1800 REFLEX (Reflex Paper), 1300 HILTON (Hilton Hotels), 1800 PROGRESSIVE (Progressive Insurance), 13 RAMS (Rams Home Loans), 1300 SHAVER (Shaver Shop), 1300 YELLOW (Yellow Express), 1300 MEDINA (Medina Apartments), 1800 HOGSTER (Hogs Breath Cafe), 13 MIDAS (Midas Auto Service), 1300 WILSON (Wilson Group), 13 BURBANK (Burbank Homes) and 13 RACV (RACV Insurance and Road Side Assistance).
Getting a phone name is easy. Once you choose the right number, we will purchase it on your behalf through ACMA. We do not lease numbers and the ROU (Rights of Use) is transferred to you and becomes your asset. This is important as the only way of having full control of the number is to be the ROU holder. Otherwise any marketing investment or goodwill created in the number may become someone else’s.
