People are bombarded by advertising messages every day. On the radio, television, online and now on their smartphones; we can’t escape them. Back in the 1970s, an average person was exposed to around 500 marketing messages in one day. Now, that number has increased to 5,000.
If a company wants to successfully promote its products or services, its advertising message must be able to cut through all the noise. Not only that, but they should be unforgettable. Successful marketing is about converting viewers into inquirers. And those inquirers into customers. You not only have to give people a good reason to contact you and inquire about your service, but you also need to give them a phone number they can’t forget. This is why you need vanity numbers.
