Why Spain? Spain is not only a beautiful country that attracts many tourists every year. At the same time, it has a large sales area. Spain has more than 47.3 million inhabitants. In short, this is a market where there is a lot to be gained. Another great advantage of doing business in Spain is that once things go well, the transition to Latin America is not very big. The same language is spoken there and Latin America has an even larger sales area, namely 418(!) million.
The Netherlands and Spain are fairly close to each other, but the countries differ considerably. It is therefore important to know what the culture is and what the differences are.
It is well known that the Spaniards like to take a break in the afternoon. The well-known ”siesta” still happens today in Spain. The phenomenon is decreasing in the larger cities, but if you want to reach customers in the afternoon, don’t be surprised if you don’t get an answer. This is a big difference between the Netherlands and Spain.
A Spaniard likes to take it easy. It doesn’t matter if they are cooking or just going for a walk, everything happens at a leisurely pace. They therefore have the attitude: If it doesn’t happen today, it will happen tomorrow. This is therefore a clear difference with the Dutch. They want everything to be precisely and strictly regulated. Don’t be surprised if Spaniards arrive at the appointment 10-15 minutes later.
The Spanish culture is super welcoming. Everyone knows the saying ”Mi casa su casa”. It means my house is your house. You are always welcome with the Spaniards and they want to give you that feeling. They are often up for a chat and are very sociable. The Dutch are often more focused on themselves and those cultural differences can clash with each other.
Kinds of Telephone Numbers in Spain
Spain has a number of different service numbers. The country code for Spain is +34 and the country uses local numbers. Message To The Moon offers several songs. You can choose which number is best for your company. If you have a number from Spain and a website, you don’t need to be physically present in the country to integrate into the market. You also save costs, such as investments in business premises, resources such as equipment, registrations, etc. The Spanish telephone numbers of Message To The Moon forward to any desired number, anywhere in the world. So you can just be in the Netherlands and pick up the phone there when a customer calls your Spanish number. Do you want to generate more turnover through the number? Or do you want to show that you are there for the customer with a Freephone number? This choice is completely up to you and our specialists are especially ready to help you with this choice.
The service numbers starting with the area code 900 are for the account of the recipient. It therefore costs the caller nothing to call this number. This Freephone phone number is not tied to a particular city or region. Because it’s free for the caller, customers like to pick up the phone to call you. A Freephone number is great for organizations where something is sold based on the call. Think for example of requests for quotations, donations or reservations. The services allowed in Spain are: Business services, customer service and entertainment. These services may use a 900 –number. The games of chance and dialer services, on the other hand, are prohibited in Spain and therefore cannot use the freephone number. Also, the law of Spain states that electricity and gas companies are required by law to have a toll-free customer service phone number.
With 902 numbers, the costs are divided. With this service number, the recipient and the caller jointly bear the costs. Cost of a 902 number is €0.12 per minute. This option is the cheapest for paid numbers. The costs are shared and so the price is lower. Government agencies often use this type of number. The services allowed for this number are business services and customer service. The dialer, games of chance and entertainment services are prohibited and are therefore not allowed to use this number.
If you want to make money on phone calls then the premium rate numbers are for you. With a premium rate number, the costs are entirely for the caller. Spain has many different types of premium rate numbers. Spain has a number of different numbers and has a separate number for each service. The numbers are:
- 0803 (Adult)
- 0806 (Entertainment)
- 0807 (Business)
- 0905 (Voting)
There are different types of rates, namely costs per minute and costs per call. The costs can vary from €0.41 to €1.21 and €1.42 per call. Premium Rate numbers are usually used for calls that do not lead to sales. For example, you can think of support services or information numbers. The Premium Rate number gives you a professional look. Above all, this number shows that you are not linked to a region, but operate on a national level. The customer service, games of chance and dialer services are prohibited and are therefore not allowed to use this number.
With a geographic number you tie your brand to a specific city or region. For example, it is possible to take a telephone number in the area code area of, for example, Madrid, Barcelona or Seville. This ensures that the local population has more confidence and thus clearly shows which market you want to reach. This option is intended for companies that want to indicate that they will be physically present in the country. But it is also very useful for shops that have several visiting addresses.
