    Default The value of an 800 number containing 5466

    How much would you be willing to pay for a toll-free 800 number, and it is a true 800 number and not 855, 866, 877 or 888, that ends 5466?

    What is the value of a number that is 1-800-XXX-5466?

    I wouldn't think its worth all that much. I wouldn't see paying more than $50-100 for it but I also have about 15 different numbers for marketing purposes and about 5 end in 5466. You selling??

    Although some places lease the numbers out too so if you were planning on doing a huge marketing campaign around that number, maybe then it would be more valuable to someone.

    I have been thinking about this lately. I have decided it is not as important as it was 20 years ago. Back then people would see your number on your car and have to remember it to call when they got home. Now they punch it in their cell phone and call on the spot.

    A local number is the best

    Mine is 206-367-5466 which transfers to 206-For-Limo. The for part happened by luck.

    How many places that you do business with have a word for a phone number and how many do you remember off the top of your head?I do not think that people even want to remember numbers any longer. They just want to find someone they like then put it under "limo" in their cell phone contacts list and forget about it until they need it.

    I think you should save your money. These days, there are cell phones that don't even list the letters on the numbers. There is no more vanity in telephone numbers... At least for the most part.

    One tip if you really want a local 5466 number, get a free google voice number, I have one that is a 5466 in the 760 area code and its free.

    And what does this have to do with an 800 number?

    Guys, I'm not buying a number like this. I was just curious what you would be willing to pay for a number like this.

    That's exactly what we have. A local 214 with a 5466 ending from google voice.

    This is a very interesting thread. I have been trying to get a toll free number with my back half number for years, but no one can give me a straight answer as to why they are not available. My phone number in scrip comes out to GO-GO-RED, I thought how awesome would 1-800-GO-GO-RED be for advertising purposes especially radio, but my phone carrier says it is unavailable. If you call 1-800 or 1-888 or any of the other toll free numbers ending in Go Go Red they are not live, so I don't get it. This has been frustrating the heck out of me and I wish someone would be able to tell me why this is. At my last house I had a 800 number piggybacked to my existing line but when I moved the same thing couldn't be done with my new number.

    As to the comment about Yellow pages, believe it or not people still do use them. I had a call 2 days ago and the client said he got our number from the Yellow pages...Not on line but the actual book, it may not be what it used to be but I believe some folks still use them.

    Doesn't having to type in letters on the phone make it even harder to dial? Seems like it would only be useful like RoyalFleet said when they want to memorize it, I don't think anyone tries to memorize limo company numbers.
