800 numbers, do you use them?

Wondering if it would make the company look more professional or not if it was put on the flyers.

I use them. Think about it all the big companies nation wide use 800 numbers.

Think how easy it is to remember my number. 1-800-lawncare.

1-800 flowers.

I see no value in just a 800 number it have to be applicable for people to remember.

1-800-4 lawn doctor

You can have the same number in your area, check out www.1800lawncare.com for more details

I had one with my business I sold from MA. 800-281-GROW. Worked well in that area because most people came from out of state to their 2nd homes.

At one point someone started running a commercial on the radio in NY and Boston for herbal hair replacement pills and their # was 888-281-GROW.......I ended up with a bunch of their business!

Hi Varsity Lawn and Garden,

I think it creates a feel that the company is larger. Where do most of your calls come from? Are they local? If so you might not need it. Would it be more helpful to spend that money elsewhere?
