New Click-to-Call Feature From Google

Now people searching using their smart phones can click a phone number in the ad and be connected to a business.  Rather than being charged for a ‘click’, the  advertisers is charged for the ‘click to call’… This works on the same principle as the pay-per-click feature in Google Adwords.

Helen Leggatt@Biz Report states, “After trial participants experienced “improved” click-through rates (from 5% to 30%) and increased telephone calls, as well as more traffic to their websites,  Google has decided to roll out the click-to-call service to all advertisers.

The cost to advertisers is the same as the cost for a click, which is a relatively inexpensive way to get a conversion or lead from an interested consumer.

“Many local advertisers – large and small – want to receive calls rather than clicks. And this new option provides a great deal of value and new possibilities for those advertisers. It’s also a bargain – call for the price of a click – for early advertisers, compared to more formal pay-per-call programs out there today,”  says Greg Sterling, principal analyst at Sterling Market Intelligence.
