It is safe to say that 0345 numbers have affordability on their side. But that is not all they have to offer your business. As you are probably aware, 03 numbers are used by many organisations as a more affordable option to their more expensive counterparts. Typically costing no more than a standard geographic (01 or 02) call, 03 telephone numbers give you national presence and your callers an inexpensive call rate. Therefore, many companies like to use this new 0345 business phone number to its full marketing potential.
The 0345 range of numbers is part of a sub-range of numbers in place to ease the migration from equivalent 0845 prefixes. What is more, unlike other 03 numbers, 0345 are not assigned to one particular sector. Therefore, they are readily available to all.
Already using a 0845?
Are you aware that in many cases your existing 0845 number can be exchanged with the equivalent 0345 number? That means the main body of your phone number remains the same, the only aspect to change is the actual prefix, for example:
0845 123 1234 would then become 0345 123 1234
However, this is not always possible – it all depends on your original telephone number provider. However, you are typically able to pick a primary number of your choosing. Lots of people opt for numbers they think their callers will find most memorable, in fact, chosen carefully, your new number can act as simple yet cleverly effective marketing tool.
