Choosing a Business Phone Number


Phone numbers can serve as a great marketing tool. They can appear on your website’s Contact Us section, on your product packaging, in marketing materials like brochures and pamphlets, or on your business cards. Having a business phone # listed on your Google business profile will not only make your company appear professional, but also it will make it easier for customers to reach out to you with a click of a button.

In addition to phone communication, your customer service strategy may include email, contact form, chatbot, or live chat. If you already have a business phone number you want to keep, we can port that over to Telekit. Email us at or call us at +1 (312) 546-4456 and we will guide you through the process. In the meantime, feel free to test out Telekit with a temporary number.

If you don’t have a phone number for your business already, you can choose to get one from us. We have local phone numbers associated geographical regions or toll-free phone numbers. You can search for specific numbers using digits and letters.

Local vs Toll Free Numbers

You may choose a local phone # to feel more connected to your customers and to create a sense of belonging within a community. A local phone # can also make your business seem more accessible and familiar. Your business may specifically appeal to customers who like to purchase locally sourced items.

You can choose a TFN if you want to make your business seem larger and more established. It could also be beneficial if you have multiple locations across the country and don’t want to be associated to a particular city/state or region, especially if your customers are all over the country.

Vanity Phone Numbers

You may decide to pick a number that nearly spells out your business name, brand name, or a catchy word. This will help your company become more recognizable and increase the chance that consumers will recall your business when deciding to make a purchase. For example, 1833-HABITAT or 312-YOU-SING are vanity phone numbers, and you can search using alphabets and numbers on Telekit.

In summary, pick a local phone number if you want to be associated with a geographical location and show that you are a local, friendly business. Pick a toll-free number if you want to seem more established and if you service more than one geographical location. Vanity phone numbers are memorable and can help your customers recall your phone number easily.

Your Telekit subscription includes one phone number (including free trial period). If you would like to use additional phone number, contact us and we will be happy to create a custom plan for you.
