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.

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.
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.

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.
Business1300 offers a Free Search and Advice service to help you choose the right number for your business. There are many options available and it's important to make the right choice. After all, changing the number down the track is not ideal.
Smart numbers are the most popular when it comes to choosing a number that's going to be used for promotional purposes. There is a huge range of available numbers to choose from with over 1.5 million still available for connection.
There are 3 versions of Smart Numbers:
With the digital age upon us, a phone name is an excellent addition to a website and other online marketing campaigns. Apart from providing another contact option, it's promoting your business by just being displayed.
A phone name is impressive and will help promote your business brand. It's also 5x more memorable than an ordinary number and rather than remembering a sequence of numbers, customers only have to remember the business name.
By choosing a word that's closely associated to your business, a phone word can help promote your product, service or industry by just being displayed.
Similar to a phone name, it's a perfect addition to any online presence. Apart from the 'wow' factor, it will provide an easy to remember point of contact for your customers. All they have to remember is the word rather than a sequence of numbers.
If a phone word or phone name is not available, or you would rather have a number with a highly memorable pattern, then a smart number with a highly memorable numeric pattern is the option.
Choose the Prefix - if it's important to provide a free call option for your callers then a 1800 number is the right choice. If all that's required is a national number where callers are charged a local call rate, then a 1300 number is more than suitable. The last option are 13 numbers and these are mainly used by large national companies that require short and easy to remember numbers. The reason why they're mainly used by large companies is the additional licencing costs which most SME businesses can't justify.
Choose the Type - if the number doesn't have to be very memorable, then a freepool number is more than sufficient. But if it will be used for marketing purposes and to help promote the business, then a smart number would be a wise choice. Then it's only a matter of choosing the word or a preferred sequence of numbers.
Once you choose the number, it has to be connected to a network. Business1300 has some of the most competitive plans available. Our fully featured plans start from $15 per Month including call credits and come with a full suite of features and functions. You can also take advantage of our Valet $5 plan that lets you keep the 1300 or 1800 number connected with all calls routed to your own Voice 2 Email service.
