Pleasanton, CA. (PRWEB) August 5, 2005
ZiffLeads, a leading pay-per-phone call (PPCall) system provider and advertising network, http://www.ZiffLeads.com, announced a partnership with Touch Group PLC, operator of one of Britain's leading local directories, http://www.TouchLocal.com, to be the first to offer pay-per-call advertising in the UK. TouchLocal has already begun marketing and publishing ZiffLeads-enabled pay-per-phone call advertisements on the TouchLocal.com website.
Additionally, Touch Group will utilize the ZiffLeads system to syndicate the pay-per-phone call Ads through various distribution channels. Lycos UK is the first major distribution partner signed and already is publishing live PPCall advertisements.
Called the Ânext big thingÂ in Internet advertising, the pay-per-call advertising market in the US is projected to grow from almost zero in 2005 to as much as US$4 billion by 2009, according to a June 2005 Kelsey Group report. PPCall combines the most attractive aspect of pay-per-click advertising, lead-based performance-only billing, with the most meaningful and transparent billing action for most local merchants, the phone call.
ÂWe are excited to partner with the UK's most aggressive and innovative local search player to bring PPCall to the UK market," ZiffLeads CEO Gopesh Kumar remarked. ÂWith ZiffLeads' established technology and support, we're confident Touch will be the leading pay-per-call advertising provider in the UK.Â
Tamer Ozmen, Touch Group's CEO, commented: ÂSearch, find and call will be the next major development in online advertising and for the first time will allow businesses without websites to take advantage of what the internet can offer. Whilst many UK players have been talking about pay-per-call we are the first to actually launch a product onto the UK market with live advertisers and a distribution partner."
