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.
Call tracking (with local or toll-free numbers) 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?
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.
