0333 numbers are part of the wider 03 non-geographic range of telephone numbers. These prefixes are typically used by businesses both large and small, as a central point of contact. Alternatively 0333 numbers work just as well as a secondary marketing line, for an example of circulating a particular marketing campaign.
What are 0333 numbers?
As opposed to geographic options (which are otherwise known as geographic telephone numbers) 0333s are not tied to any particular location. So, unlike a 01 or 02 option, do you automatically associate your company’s contact details with a particular area.
The cost of calling a 0333
Despite providing an instant nationwide presence for your business, 0333 numbers are thankfully charged at no more than the cost of a local rate call.
Let’s look at the figures:
- Current standard landline costs (based on BT rates) are charged at up to 9p per minute
- Current standard mobile costs are typically charged between 8p and 40p per minute
Don’t forget ‘inclusive minute’ packages:
The majority of callers have ‘inclusive minute’ packages in place, which means that your 0333 number can potentially be even more affordable. Unlike many 08 telephone prefixes, 03 numbers are typically included in pre-established minute allocations. Therefore, they are a more economical option to choose.
Ready to choose your new 0333 number?
Thankfully obtaining and establishing your 0333 number is hassle-free and can be done in literally a matter of minutes. No extra equipment is required, and there is no need for an engineer to visit. Reassuringly that means there in no expensive downtime for your business.
Careful selection of your 0333 phone number allows the freedom to add that extra memorability factor. For instance, you could select a number that is similar to your previous digits, or you could choose a selection that looks and sounds catchy. Of course, you could decide to take a number that simply begins with 0333 – it is up to you.
Existing marketing material
Any existing marketing material can still be used, even if it has your old contact number featured. The smart thing is; all adverting literature can be altered as you gradually making the change from one telephone number to your new 0333 number.
What is more, call rerouting is in place to ensure that all calls made to your previous phone number are redirected to you new 0333 option. That means you can rest assured that you will never miss a call.
