Inevitably, when asking for prospect's phone numbers on a registration page, some will put in a fake phone number.
How To Avoid Getting Fake Phone Numbers
It's impossible to avoid getting any fake phone numbers, however there are some ways to reduce it.
1) Make your offer compelling.
Make it so that they want to give your their real number. If you're getting lots of fake numbers, try building more trust before asking for it. This is easier said than done, but it's true.
2) Tell them WHY you need their phone number.
Without a reason, your prospects will default to thinking the worst case scenario with what you will do with their phone number. By giving them a reason, they will be more inclined to understand the expectations and give a real number.
For example, you might say:
"We'll send you SMS reminders about the upcoming webinar so you don't miss it!"
"You'll receive 1 text per month about our free training and special deals"
Being specific about what they can expect will reduce the fake phone numbers.
3) Remind them that they can opt-out at any time.
This is required compliance text, but make it obvious that people can always opt out.
