Simply put, Phonewords or phone names are phone numbers that spell words. By using the letters on the telephone keypad simply type the number as you see it.

For example the PhoneWord 1300 FORSALE would be keyed in as 1300 367725


The last number (3) need not be dialed as the number will connect after the first six numbers following the prefix 1300. This is known as “overdial” and is used to assist in the making of PhoneWords or Phone names that are longer than six letters.

The key to this is the fact that potential customers remember the word and therefore create an imprint in their mind for future calling to your business.
