While we talk a lot here on the blog and in other places about the value of having a toll-free fax number – especially how it can make a small company look larger – it’s not necessarily right for everybody.
There are lots of good reasons you might want to have a local number instead, such as a small company wanting to emphasize its local ties or a large company wanting to localize its service.
That’s why the fact that MyFax has expanded our local fax number availability in the U.S. is such warm news on an otherwise chilly day. In fact, we now have local numbers available for our Internet fax service in 78 additional area codes throughout the country. That’s a 46 percent increase in total U.S. coverage in just one year!
What that means to you is you can obtain a local number no matter where your office happens to be located – or where you want it to look like it’s located since you don’t have to live in that area code to receive a number for it.
By the way, if you’ve been using a toll-free fax number and want to change it over to a local number, contact MyFax customer service via phone, email or online chat and they’ll take care of it for you.
So what do you think? Do you prefer to use a toll-free or local fax number? And why?
