Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) February 22, 2010
Mongoose Metrics, an enterprise-level call tracking solutions provider, today announced a partnership with Acquisio, a leading developer of pay-per-click (PPC) management tools for agencies. These pay-per-click management tools allow customers of Google Adwords, Microsoft AdCenter and Yahoo! Search Marketing to optimize their campaign spending with a full picture of both online and offline conversions.
The partnership allows customers to visualize a powerful marketing picture which illuminates how paid search traffic is driving phone calls. For the first time ever, Acquisio clients have the power to capture a treasure-trove of data about phone conversions from customer browsing through to the completed sale.
“If even five to 10 percent of your conversions happen over the phone, call tracking is imperative for maximizing returns from your PPC spending. Mongoose Metrics' call tracking data provides clients with intelligence about which campaigns, keywords and marketing tactics are driving calls, and, more importantly, whether those calls are generating revenue,” says Bradley Reynolds, chief executive officer of Mongoose Metrics.
Acquisio and Mongoose Metrics share a number of clients and the partnership leverages both companies’ existing assets to provide more value to those clients.
“We integrated Mongoose Metrics' call tracking data into Acquisio so our clients can manage PPC campaigns based on performance, which also includes phone calls they receive. By integrating Mongoose Metrics, we've made our powerful PPC management tool even more powerful, because we're providing agencies the information they need to tie together their clients' online campaigns and corresponding telephone or call center activities,” says Marc Poirier, co-founder and chief marketing officer for Acquisio.
Call tracking enables businesses to answer formerly mysterious marketing questions such as:
- Do my Web marketing campaigns generate phone calls?
- Do these phone calls generate revenue?
- Do certain pages or sections of my website cause visitors to pick up the phone? Do they take action over the phone?
- Do prospects who call end up back on the site? Do they end up purchasing online?

About Call Tracking
Call tracking is one method of lead generation measurement that brings substantial and highly measurable insight to the issue of understanding online-to-offline (web-to-phone) conversions. It enables clients to migrate from merely tracking the number of phone calls they receive from online advertising campaigns to understanding each caller’s online behavior and buying persona.
More importantly, call tracking allows businesses to calculate financial success for every form of advertising they are paying for. With call tracking, marketers now have an increasingly powerful tool to not only measure -- but also analyze -- offline conversions (phone calls) to more effectively determine success and make informed spending decisions.
