800 vanity numbers have proved to be a great way to boost customer- business relation. Your business can enjoy the benefits of a virtual phone on one hand and the special features of toll free numbers on the other. Vanity 800 numbers offer an additional appeal although it’s of the promotional type. Vanity 800 numbers are the great asset in grabbing new customers.

Convenient and cost effective calling

800 vanity numbers are not only easier for the customers to call you but also enables your employees , suppliers and partners to reach you conveniently and cost effectively 24 hours a day. A Vanity 800 number makes you easily accessible across whole country.

Marketing through a vanity 800 number

A vanity number clearly propagates two very important messages: first, the type of business (it usually contains the name of the product/service) and second, the contact number to reach the business.

Industry-Related

Always try to choose a Vanity Number which is industry or business related. For example, a company that specializes in swimming pool maintenance. Here, it is beneficial to choose a number like 1-855-POOLBOY or 1-877-BLUE-POOL because it relates directly to the industry and is not cryptic in any way. Even 1-800-SWIMMING would be an option for companies who are in this rare situation.

Zagat

Standard

Zagat is a business based on a simple premise that opinions of customers with real experiences are far much better than those unfiltered comments of a few.

Zagat was launched in 1979 and since then it has worked to help users find the best places in the world ranging from unknown noddle shops to the most famous restaurants across the world. It is the most trusted and accurate source of discovering of the best places to eat and drink.Over the years, Zagat has won applause all over the world . The Associated Press has called Zagat “the world’s most influential travel and food guides,” and The New York Times: “a necessity second only to a valid credit card.”

In September 2011, Google acquired this service. Google picked the famous site with the view to collabrate the power of Google search and Google maps and Zagat’s products and users and bring a innovation trust and wealth of experience to users. Google integrated Zagat into Google+in May 2012 via the Google+ Local app .Since then the first major update to this website and accompanying it with mobile apps has been done recently. The most important thing in this upgrade is that now Zagat content is available to all users free with no registration required. According to group product manager Gannon Hall “ the new Zagat features news and videos from local editors , as well as curated lists , powerful search and map based browsing”.

Google has tried to absorb Zagat scores into Google Maps and local search results. But still we know that without Zagat brand these scores are of no importance or less importance. In this new app we can search for places but search is indeed largely de-emphasized. Discovery and “curated” content are front and center:’best of’ lists and editorial roundups are the star.Google hopes this new app will compete better with Yelp which is holding advantage over Google maps because of its content depth.

In advance of its expansion, the company will soon make existing ratings and reviews available on Zagat.com. Last week, however, Google said the iOS version of G+ Local would retire on Aug. 7 since all of the app’s features have since been incorporated into Google Maps.The updated Zagat mobile app is available now for free download in the Google Play store and the Apple iTunes Store.
