Why Your Aussie Business Needs a US International Number
If you’re looking to take your business global, the US market should be one of your first choices. A common language, similar cultures and close economic ties make it a natural choice – but how do you do it?
There’s a number of things to consider when taking your business to new markets, and accessibility to customer service is one of the most important. That’s why at Business 1300 we recommend setting up a US international number, so American customers can reach your local team in an easy and familiar way. Read on to learn more about 800/888 numbers and the benefits they present for your business.
What are 800/888 Numbers and How Do They Work?
Just like the UK with their 800 and 808 numbers, the US has multiple toll-free number prefixes available for businesses. Both free for the caller, a 800 or 888 number allows customers to pass the cost of the phone call on to you, eliminating a key barrier to entry and making that much faster and easier for leads to find out what they need to know about your organisation and your product.

What are the Benefits of Having an 800/888 Number?
A toll-free number is an essential addition to any growing business, but why? Simply put, these numbers offer benefits that businesses can’t afford to pass up.
Build Your Credibility
A mobile phone or standard landline can be fine when you’re starting out, but as you start to build a portfolio and grow your business it’s vital that you understand how you’re perceived in the market. Fundamentally, customers associate toll-free numbers with professionalism, quality and reliability – all virtues you want attached to your brand.
Improve Your Reach
It’s a tough market out there. With customers exposed to thousands of ads each day, newcomers to the market can have a tough time breaking through. Especially if you’re a foreign company entering one of the most competitive markets in the world, you need every advantage you can get. A toll-free number removes a small but disincentivising barrier to entry for your customers, allowing them to instantly get in touch with your business at zero cost to themselves.
Every moment brings fresh opportunity to reinforce your brand in people’s minds, including giving them your phone number. A well chosen phone word or catchy phone number can improve brand retention, helping customers walk away from an interaction with a stronger, longer-lasting image of your brand and of your company. The result? When push comes to shove and they’re making a decision, you’re more likely to be top of mind.
