You just get more people picking up when you call them from a local mobile phone. The reach rate I had in Europe was 1/12 numbers dialed from external numbers and 1/7 for the local dial.ย

I think this depends on your target audience. Personally, I'm not touching the phone if it's my area code and the number isn't saved. I just don't do it. It makes me feel like a liar.ย

I despise local dialers from the buyer/prospect perspective - its gotten to the point for me where I push 100% of my calls to voicemail.ย  ย That being said, I've read the data that says call to connect rates are higher, and that's the first step in driving increased conversion and engagement.ย  So.....I'm torn.ย

local numbers are more likely to be looked at as spam.
