How do your current and potential clients get ahold of you these days? By cell phone? Local number? Switching to or adding a toll-free number may be a great move for your business. If you're still undecided, we've listed out a few pros and cons below.

The Pros of a Toll-Free Number

Make yourself available everywhere

Toll-Free Numbers mean a potential customer calling in from a small town in the middle of nowhere can still reach you.

Filter calls and leads

For Marketing purposes, you can use different Toll-Free Numbers to see which ads are working best for your company by analyzing the number with the most calls.

Fake it till you make it

By having a 1-800 number, you immediately portray a company of larger size and definitely put off a more professional vibe. A toll-free number lets people know you're so great, even customers outside of your local area want and need your product/service

The Cons of a Toll-Free Number

Local Reach

If you're not trying to reach a nationwide audience, having a local number may be a better fit. It shows you're invested in your community and you can better identify with your customers.


An 800 number can cost you, depending on your provider. Others will allow you to purchase the number all together; this is still not most efficient.

What Calls?

Maybe with your type of business it's just not necessary to have a toll-free number. If you run a factory strictly creating product for another company, you may not receive too many lead calls. Completely understandable!
