Studies have shown that people are more likely to pick up calls from callers they perceive to be in their own region.
The first thing one does when their phone rings is check who is calling. Seeing a toll-free number on the screen certainly does not make one eager to answer, since all of us have come to expect those calls to come from amateur telemarketers trying to sell us things.
But now let’s suppose we’re on the other side of the barricades, realizing that we are wasting our expensive, qualified leads to a plain unwillingness of people to answer potential sales calls – what should we do?
Establishing a local presence is an expensive, time consuming, and, in most cases, unnecessary undertaking in our digitally driven world, and therefore can be ruled out.
With VoIP, it boils down to purchasing some local numbers, and changing those as we are about to call a local destination, but what if you are calling dozens, or even hundreds of area codes? In this situation plain number acquisition and assignation becomes ineffective.
