Call Tracking Numbers

"If you can't read the scoreboard, you don't know the score.
If you don't know the score, you can't tell the winners from the losers."
- Warren Buffet

What is call tracking?

"Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted... the trouble is I don't know which half!"

In the 1930’s when this quote was first coined, it was valid. But these days there is a great tool that allows us to get a good handle on how our advertising is performing… call tracking. Call tracking is a simple service that allows you to track and monitor how many calls you receive from each individual advert or piece of marketing you do.

A phone call is much more valuable than a click

We know all leads aren’t created equal, right? Marketing automation may be all the rage and you may have highly sophisticated marketing campaigns designed to move prospects through the sales funnel but none of these campaigns is going to be as efficient as a person handling a customer enquiry on the phone – listening to their requirements, developing rapport, handling their objections and closing the sale.

of all mobile advertising leads to a phone call as well of 61% of all mobile searches according to Google

of people complete their purchase activity offline following their search activity and conversion rates are much higher

of people would prefer to get help from a real person before making certain online purchases

of people say there have been times when they have questions which cannot be answered by the web site

of people say there have been times when they have needed help but have not been able to get hold of a real person

of those people that couldn't get help from a real person say it affected their decision not to purchase the product

So why would you leave it to chance where your phone leads come from?
Wouldn’t you want more of them?

This is where CALL TRACKING comes in.

How can call tracking numbers help your business?

“If you are not already using call tracking numbers, you really should be.”

I had heard call tracking mentioned before the convention and have always been hugely frustrated by advertising without knowing whether I was getting a decent ROI, so I took the opportunity at the convention to visit Invoco’s stand and sign up for their offer. Within 2 months I had purchased extra numbers and can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner. Not only has it helped me gauge my ROI on various advertising streams but even the ROI of members of my team responsible for running those streams! The Invoco site is incredibly straightforward to use and gives you all the information you need to measure the effectiveness of your adverts. If you are not already using call tracking numbers, you really should be.”

“Invoco’s website is so easy to use and I am no technical expert!”

I currently use Invoco for call tracking numbers so I can see when people actually ring the numbers on my adverts, website etc. I can now measure which marketing campaigns are generating my sales leads and therefore which campaigns are working and which aren’t. Invoco’s website is so easy to use and I am no technical expert! Analysing the call data is straightforward too. Costs are really competitive, and the guys from Invoco are really nice and hugely helpful!
