ACMA SMART NUMBERS
ACMA smart numbers are a fantastic way to get noticed through the 13, 1300 or 1800 number. There are 3 types of smart numbers:
Phone Names such as 1300 WILSON spell the name of the business through the alphanumeric keypad. An ideal way to promote your business brand.
Phone Words such as 1300 SHAVER spell a word associated with the business through the alphanumeric keypad. An excellent way to promote your product or service through your phone number.
Memorable Numeric Patterns such as 1300 000 300 or 1300 00 1300 are easy to remember numbers ideal for marketing and advertising purposes.
Smart Numbers come with an EROU (Enhanced Rights of Use) which protects your rights to the number, ensuring it becomes a business asset rather than just an expense.
Seize the Market
Premium Numbers are an excellent way to help your business maximise the return on its marketing and advertising investment. They have a much higher recall rating than other numbers which means they're more memorable and therefore more effective when used in promotional material.
Being part of the smartnumber range of inbound numbers, they also come with an ROU (Rights of Use) to protect your investment.
There are still over 50,000 premium smart numbers available to purchase. Most numbers are $750, being a one-off purchase price to gain the ROU and full rights to the number.
The numbers are sold and managed by ACMA and Business 1300 offers a Free Search and Advice Service. We'll search the ACMA database for a range of suitable numbers to choose from and then buy it on your behalf.
Things to Consider When Choosing the Type of Number
Although the process of choosing a number is not hard, it pays to give it some thought. The number one question is how memorable the number should be. Will it be a major part of marketing and promoting the business?
If the answer is yes, then the second question is, what will it be helping to promote? Will it be the business brand, its product or service, or just the business in general. Once you're clear on that, the rest is easy. Following are some things to consider when choosing the type of number for your business.
- How important is it for the number to be memorable?
- Will it be used for display advertising, in particular signage and billboards?
- Will it be used for TV and radio advertising?
- Do I need the number to boost my business branding?
- Do I need to make a strong first impression?
- Will the number be used for promotion of products and services?
- Will the number be connected at all times or is it being used for special events?
- Do I need multiple numbers and do they need to be sequential?
- Do I need to get a matching fax number?
- Do I need to provide a Free Call service to my customers?
- What type of number do my competitors have?
- Is it important to own the EROU (Enhanced Rights of Use) to the number?
- What's my budget to have a number and keep it active?
- Who's the target audience?
