How To Use Pay-Per-Click To Get More Phone Calls

Tips From Professional Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Marketers

Let’s say that you recently set up a Pay-Per-Click Campaign that was mildly successful. You’re noticing that your ads are garnering clicks, but one thing is irritating you.

That is – your ads are getting clicks but no one is buying anything. PPC Ads aren’t cheap, and your campaign could be hemorrhaging money by the day if your conversions and clicks aren’t matching up.

To capitalize on hot leads while their interest levels are still high, you should Optimize your PPC Campaign to get more calls instead of clicks. 

Here’s how you can do this.

Utilize Call Extensions

When you perform an online search, you’ll probably run into a few ads that have a call extension – that is a blue, formatted phone call link on the top of the ad.

Call extensions can increase your Click-through Rate (CTR) significantly. Why? It makes it easier for potential customers to contact you.

With call extensions, a lead won’t have to fill out a form or navigate through your landing page just to find your office number. They’ll simply call you on the spot if they’re interested or want to learn more about your business.

Call extensions may become increasingly important to implement. This is because consumers are constantly being bombarded with commercial emails, which makes it less likely that they’ll answer your email if you take the traditional route of linking your ads to your website.

Make Your Phone a Click-to-Call 

When your ad appears on a search engine, your phone number will be automatically formatted to be dialed once it is clicked on a mobile device.

On your landing page, you should also format your phone number in your call-to-action to do the same. This makes it easier for consumers to contact you instead of writing down or remembering your phone number.

Eliminating friction by making your phone number simpler to dial is key because humans value simplicity. It doesn’t take much effort to format your phone number in this way, and it can tremendously impact your bottom line in a positive way.

Make Calling your Intended Call-to-Action 

Landing pages will often have a clear call-to-action to either dial a phone number or visit a web page. Sometimes, this doesn’t happen in ads, and it can throw off its effectiveness.

In your ads, you should make it clear that you want your audience to call you. You can post your phone number in your ad while your copy says to visit your website.

Something this subtle can confuse your audience. For example, let’s say that you’re a Personal Injury Attorney & your PPC Ad Copy simply says “Get your maximum Compensation! Call us Today for a Free Consultation!”

How is someone supposed to follow through with this call-to-action? Make your call-to-action clear that you intend on your leads to dial your phone number.
