Look 'BIG' with a 13 Number

Being only 6 digits long, 13 numbers are potentially the easiest to remember. That's why they're popular with Australia's leading organisations and preferred by marketers. 13 phone numbers come fully equipped with features and functions, just like 1300 or 1800 numbers. The only difference between them is the number of digits.

The Ideal Complement to Your Marketing

13 numbers are significantly easier to remember and make a lasting impression. They're an excellent investment for businesses who run mass marketing campaigns or rely on display advertising.

Easiest to Remember

Being only 6 digits long, 13 numbers are potentially the most memorable. And that means more calls when used in marketing campaigns.

Big Business Image

13 numbers are generally associated with large, national companies. If your business operates in that market, it pays to project a similar image.

Only $50 per Month 

Our Corporate 13 Plan is only $50 per month and includes the complete set of features and functions. It also comes with local calls that are free for the first 20 minutes.

If you have specific requirements or have an existing number with a high volume of calls, we can tailor a 13 plan to suit your needs. Please call us on 1300 00 1300 or CLICK HERE to make an online enquiry.

13 Number Cost vs 1300-1800 Numbers

The cost of a 13 number is substantially higher than a 1300 or 1800 number. The reason is that 13 numbers attract an additional ACMA numbering charge of $695 (plus GST) per Month, making the overall cost much greater. The same numbering fee for 1300 and 1800 numbers is only $1 p.a. and is usually absorbed by the carrier.

For businesses that advertise through radio, TV or display advertising, using a high recall number can make a significant difference to the success of the advertising campaign. Given that such campaigns often cost many thousands of dollars, an additional monthly fee of $695 is well justified.

For information on our 1300 Number Plans and 1800 Number Plans, please click on the link. Plans start at $15 per Month and don't attract an additional numbering charge.

Businesses That Should Consider a 13 Number

  • National distributors of products or services, especially directly to the consumer market. Customers are more likely to remember a six digit number and calls are charged at the local call rate from any Australian phone line.
  • Businesses that advertise their products and services on a large scale and the phone number is the featured point of contact. Being more memorable, 13 numbers generate better response rates and more inbound calls. 
  • Businesses where the major point of contact is the telephone number and its important the number is easy to remember. Get more repeat business and referrals by having a highly memorable number. 
  • Businesses that are competing directly with large, national companies and its important they're seen as being in the same league. 
  • Businesses that want to look 'bigger' than their competitors and want to make an impact. Getting a 13 number elevates the company's status.
  • Businesses that do a lot of display advertising such as signage (building and motor vehicle), billboards and posters. Shorter numbers are easier to remember and especially useful for display advertising where its only seen for a very short time by the passing traffic.
  • Businesses that advertise on radio or TV, where high recall numbers are important to maximise the response rate. An easy to remember number, especially with a short sequence, can make a lot of difference to the success of the campaign.

Features and Functions

13 numbers come with a full range of features and functions, all designed to help you manage your calls and create an seamless call handling process. Get a 13 phone number to work for your business by combining some of the functions together.

Untitled design (1)

Auto Attendant (IVR)

Auto Attendant (also known as IVR) allows callers to select an option from the numeric keypad, which transfers the call directly to the option they have selected. It's a great solution for businesses with multiple departments. By skipping reception in the call transfer process, the feature can help relieve your reception staff and provide callers with quicker call wait times.

Untitled design (6)

Call Overflow

Call overflow is a feature that allows the call to be diverted to a different phone number if it's taking too long to be answered. The feature is a great way to ensure that every call gets attended to. It can also be paired with a Live Answering Service, where our call centre staff can answer on your behalf if you're unavailable to take the call.

Untitled design (3)

Voice 2 Email

A Voice2Email service is a feature that can be added to your inbound number, where calls are diverted to a message bank if you're not available to take the call. Unlike a standard message bank, the caller's message is sent to a designated email address as an mp3 file. It can then be easily forwarded to another recipient, or stored in the email inbox.

Time-Based Routing

Time-based routing involves diverting calls to a designated phone number based on the time of day. It's the ideal solution for automatically routing after-hour calls and can be combined with either a Voice2Email or a Live Answering Service.

Business Intro Greeting

A business intro greeting is a recording that can be programmed to play at the start of every call. It can either be a stand-alone promotional message or combined with IVR prompts. The greeting can be recorded in-house or by a professional voice artist. It's a fantastic way to introduce your business to the caller and create a positive customer experience before the call has even started.

Geo-Routing enables calls to be diverted to a given number, depending on what location the call is coming from. This feature is a fantastic solution for businesses with multiple locations. The calls will be directed to the most relevant location, without the need for a receptionist to transfer.

Phone Names

Phone Names are 13 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.

Maximise Return on Your Investment

Phone names are proven to increase response rates from advertising and marketing campaigns. Make your 13 number even more memorable by combining your business name in the number sequence and have your customers dial your business name every time they get in touch.
