When selecting a number you should take the following into account:
• The exposure the number can give you. Example, a local geographic number gives your company regional image while a national number gives your company a national wide presence image.
• What will the number be used for? Information service, customer service or commercial activities? Think about the type of number that best suits your service(s). Example, You may choose a Premium Rate number and generate revenue to compensate some of your costs, or you can choose a freephone number with no costs to your customers to make it easier for them to get it touch.
• Should the number have international accessibility or is local (in country only) sufficient? Freephone (International and Universal) and premium rated numbers are domestic numbers and can only be called from the country where they are active. Local, national and mobile numbers have in most cases global accessibility.
• Who is your audience? What types of numbers do they prefer to call?
