I've never been a small fish in a big market, but here I come Austin :eek:

What are your thoughts on how clients remember catchy phone numbers, such as call Paul at 555-Paul? Would seem to be better if the number had a keyword, like "remodel" or "tile" or something to link what the potential client wants and what you can deliver.

I found a number with my last name in it-seems easy enough, 93"abcde", but then again not many people know my name :whistling yet....

I think numbers like that have limited value unless you're plastering the airwaves with one of those little jingles that gets stuck in your head and corrodes your soul for weeks at a time.

And from a customer POV, I detest having to get out my Little Orphan Annie decoder ring to figure out the actual numbers.

Definitely a mixed bag. If I don't have something to write it down with, I like it. If I'm writing it down, I prefer the numbers - same thing with business cards.

Do phones even have the letters on the buttons any more?

I'm really only picturing this to be useful in the passing by situation, like word of mouth or if someone drives by my lettered van or yard sign (as if I have those hahaha).
