What is Click to Call?
Click to call is a mobile and web-based service that allows a user to click a number, link or button and automatically dial a phone number that is associated with it. You’ve likely seen these buttons when browsing Google on a mobile device or even on your desktop computer if you have click to call enabled in your browser through Skype or another VoIP client. I can tell you that adding click to call options to your digital marketing campaigns will help increase not only your contact rates, but even conversions. However, why not let the stats do the talking.
