Wholesale V1 VoIP Toll Free Service 800 Numbers

wholesale V1 VoIP toll free services 800 phone numbers and DIDsDo you need instant access to 800 DID numbers right now with superb inbound rates from the US, Canada, Alaska and Hawaii and over 50 features available including voice mail and extensions? V1 VoIP offers some of the best toll free wholesale rates in the industry.

V1 VoIP offers toll free DID (direct inbound dialing) numbers in 800, 855, 866, 877, 888, 800 and international prefixes. We delivered these phone numbers over three different types of facilities:

1. V1 VoIP Toll Free service over SIP Trunks or Hosted VOIP
800 number service delivered over SIP trunks can cut costs out the middle man just like a long distance only T1/PRI thereby offering the lowest toll free rates. What’s even better about V1 VoIP SIP trunk toll free service is that you can buy as little as one SIP trunk and still get the best rates. We have SIP trunk toll free rates starting as low as $0.014/min for volume users. V1 VoIP Hosted PBX providers like to put a little money in their pockets for running 800 service though their hosted switches, so when you buy toll free numbers on a hosted PBX platform, you’ll usually pay little more. We can provide you with some of the best rates in the industry whether you’re a wholesale or retail customer.

2. V1 VoIP Switched Toll Free Service
800 numbers can also be routed to any existing analog POTS lines like the one you might have in your home or business. Since the local phone company gets a cut for having the call pass through their local service switch, switched toll free services cost more. V1 VoIP offers some of the best switched toll free rates around.

3. V1 VoIP Dedicated T1 or PRI Toll Free service
Toll Free numbers can terminate on long distance only T1/ PRI’s or on local service T1/PRI’s. The T1’s or PRI’s can be one-way, inbound only facilities or two-way facilities that allow incoming and outgoing calls. A local service T1/PRI is a switched service so, just like POTS lines, you pay more when you route a Toll Free number to a local service T1 or PRI because your local telephone company is taking a cut for passing the call through their local service switch. However, some Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLEC’s) will offer rates on local T1’s or PRI’s that are almost the same as long distance only T1/PRI’s. ‘Competitive’ is the keyword. Most Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILEC’s) won’t give any break on the switching fees built in to total price per minute.

Local service T1/PRI’s generally offer flat rate TF plans that can currently get as low as around $0.016 cents per minute depending on the carrier and calling volume. The rates on a long distance only T1/PRI’s are offered in several different ways. Flat rate TF can start as low as around $0.013 cents per minute interstate. There are also rate decks that are based on the npa-nxx (area code + 3) the call is originating from. An npa-nxx deck is for high volume users such as call centers and can cost less on average.

Don’t wait any longer to save money on your toll free service. Contact a member of the V1 VoIP wholesale team today to find out more about our wholesale toll free pricing.

The Science behind V1 VoIP Vanity Numbers

V1 VoIP explains the psychological science behind a business using a a voip vanity toll free phone number
A vanity number is a phone number with the name of the business or person in the name. A great example of this is 1-800-GOT-JUNK. With a phone number like this that explains what the company does in the number, there is no way to confuse this company with one that sells bath supplies. For decades, vanity numbers have been essential for company brand recognition in a time where it seems everyone has attention holding problems. But do vanity numbers actually work?

In 1994, an investigation surveyed by DMMA Telephone Marketing TARP looked into whether or not toll-free vanity numbers were effective in creating memorability with customers. Apparently it worked. They claimed that having a vanity toll free number led to an increase in product orders by 18-23% and raised the average value per order by 20-40%. Even more, they suggested that customers would call 300-400% times more if a company advertises toll-free.

Another study commissioned by 800-response researched the recall rate of vanity numbers and URLs. Those involved discovered an average recall rate 75.4% higher with vanity 800 numbers over numeric toll-free numbers. As well, 57% of survey respondents preferred vanity 800 numbers to local numeric phone numbers. Even more recently, Mountain Marketing Group too broached this topic. Their report states that 90% of Americans have used toll-free numbers to contact a company, 84% of which could recall the number long after because of the ad’s use of letters and visual aids.

Recalling a business’ telephone number occurs within the working memory. Upon gazing at a number, the mind initiates a “phonological loop,” which, if interrupted, stops the mind from processing and storing the data – the number in this case. But even without interference, the phonological loop does little for the long-term memory. This is because long-term memory requires association – a link to something familiar.

Generally, people remember words more than they do numbers – not to mention, people tend to develop stronger associations with words over numbers. For this reason, vanity numbers help businesses create associations by leveraging a brand or message to tie things together. The number’s prefix even plays a part in retention. According to 800response’s 2011 survey, 90% of consumers recognize the “800” prefix as toll-free, meaning popular toll-free numbers elicit consumer action more than lesser-known variations. In that sense, get to know the formats available in your country.

If you are in need of a vanity toll free number which will increase your company’s business returns contact V1 VoIP today to see your name behind 1-800 digits.
