You can start by placing it prominently on your Web site.

You spend a lot of time and effort designing your Web site,honing and refining it so that customers will easily find it anduse it. Now go a step further and make it easy for them to reachyou by phone. Does your company have a toll-free number? All the800 and 888 numbers are taken. The 877 series is nearly gone andundoubtedly will give way to yet another series.

Thus,even an extended call on the order of six minutes still costs lessthan a dollar.
