How Can I Use Virtual Phone Numbers to Improve Marketing?

A VoIP Virtual Number with virtual phone number call forwarding is a telephone number that forwards incoming calls to one of the pre-set telephone numbers chosen by the user. For example, a company located in China can have a virtual local phone number or virtual mobile number in Los Angeles. CallFire's virtual telephone numbers are very popular among Call Centers when creating a virtual phone bank. International virtual phone numbers are also popular with people currently residing in a foreign country, giving their family members and friends a virtual phone number so that they can contact them at a local call price rate. Here are just a few ways our clients are using virtual numbers with call tracking to grow and sustain their businesses:

Track numbers for campaign analysis
Find out what works and cut what doesn’t work with hosted numbers
Purchase DID numbers for each marketing avenue
Test marketing campaigns and optimize based on call volume
Offer added value and professionalism with toll free numbers
…and Much More!

Speaker 1: Why does my business need call tracking? Here’s an example. Cameron is a realtor on the west side of town. He advertises in the newspaper, online, and even on billboards. Megan is also a west-side realtor and advertises in all the same places, spending the same amount, but Megan is smart. She doesn’t want to shovel money mindlessly into advertising without knowing that it works, so she turns to CallFire and starts tracking her calls. Megan evenly splits her budget three ways, but rather than advertise the same phone number, she buys three different numbers from CallFire and puts one on each ad. All Megan’s CallFire phone numbers forward to the same place, her office, but with call tracking, she can now see how many calls are coming through each advertising channel and determine which ad works best.

After a few weeks, Megan realizes her billboards are driving more calls than anything else, so she reallocates her budge to focus primarily on billboards. Megan’s phone is ringing off the hook, but Cameron’s ads stay the same, and his phone barely rings at all. Don’t make the same mistake Cameron did. With CallFire, you can buy one, two, or even thousands of local and toll-free phone numbers.
