They do not need to look for new customer, just showing their number, the costumer will contact them. That kind of marketing way is called inbound marketing. The business offices usually show special numbers as it has mentioned above.
By showing ten digits number with four number in the beginning, it builds the customer trust that the business is appropriate and professional.
