Gold numbers are our range of valuable numbers, why are they valued higher? Well its because they are easier to remember because they either contain repetition like "11 22 33" or "3000 11 44" or they have words that correspond to the keys on phone dial pads. E.g the number 2 also could be A, B or C, the number 3 is D, E or F and so you can choose numbers and advertise a word. Since the word is easy to remember, people can then go and dial the "word" but they will actually be dialling a corresponding number.
The more easy it is to remember the more likely people are to call you. Gold numbers are therefore great for advertising in general. Think of numbers that are repeated on TV, radio and on billboards. The easier to remember the number is, the more business you are likely to remember! Gold number fee is a once off fee for the number.
People see an easy to remember number, if they are interested in your service or product they are more likely to phone you since they should be able to remember the number!
People find it much easier to remember numbers with repitition, consider 111 222 as a number or triple one triple two, vs 529 817, they are both the same amount of numbers but say it aloud, the first eaxmple of 111 222 is way easier to remember. The easier to remember or more numbers repeated the more valuable the number is and the gold value will be higher. Marketing using gold numbers may result in more calls!
E.g. if your plumbing company's name is PlumbCo. You could buy a number ending: "7586226" to see the letters vs numbers: 7(P) 5(L) 8 (U) 6(M) 2(B) 2(C) 6(O). You then advertise 0800 PLUMBCO or 0207 PLUMBCO. People just need to remember the word and when they need to call you they are likely to remember that A: you offer plumbing and B: your phone number by dialling the corresponding numbers on the phone dial pad. See dial pad example below:
