How To Pick a Kickass Toll Free Number

I’ve taken the title to this post and these points from a post that I liked on called How To Pick A Kickass Domain Name by Lisa Barone. It obviously talks about domain names, but the points and really the whole article relate to equally to toll free numbers so I thought I’d recap the points.

A bad [toll free number] can hurt your business.
Decide What You’re About.
Know Who You Are, Then Be Broad.
Use Keywords When Possible.
Be Memorable.
Keep It Simple.
Think Long-term.
Consider How It Looks.
Don’t Copy Someone Else.

Read the full article on and just switch the phrase domain name for toll free number in your head.

    Great site, great service. I found a great number, placed the order, and it was up and running within an hour for less than $50. All of this took place over the weekend. Thanks Bill.

    I was given your website address from customer service of a large telephone company with the instructions to use your site as a way to search for toll free numbers that are available. When I found a number I liked I was told to contact this large telephone company and they could register and activate the number. I had a quick question so I called and talked directly with Bill. I was completely caught off guard with a live person answering within the first few rings, not the typical telephone company! Bill answered all my questions, gave great advice on using his website and hints of what I should be looking for with regards to my business. Being a small company and trying to save money, later in the day I called the large telephone company to get clarification on their pricing. I was informed it would take several days and also not previously mentioned there was a $20 activation fee.

    Bottom line is had my toll free number setup for $49.95 and was completed and working in less than 8 hours. (The majority of that time was looking for a number I liked. Order, activation and tested working in less than 2 hours)

    Large Telephone company would have taken a minimum of 2-3 days, $20 setup fee, $23 per month, and .05 cents per minute usage. Second large phone company has not returned a call to let me know if they can forward the toll free # to a cell phone.

    This testimonial was written a week after activation by
    I have my toll free number already printed and in use and would still be waiting for a call back from the "big guys." I can not think of anything you could have done better. Keep up the good work!

    Honestly, my experience with your company was great. Your web site was very user friendly and the cost was reasonable. I had browsed to a couple other web sites and they were more expensive and wanted to sell me things I didn't need. I was able to find a catchy 866 number with your search quickly, then I bought it and it was working immediately. As a Mortgage Broker in California getting this number (866) 936-FUND will help my advertising and get more name recognition.

    Thanks for your help.
