“How To Increase Your Advertising ROI (Return-On-Investment)by 10-20% by Spending Less?”(A Case-Study of Pay Per Call Advertising by Local Businesses)By Derrick Ali, HearAndProfit Publishing www.ForSmarterBuyers.comPay Per Call Advertising Explained:This article is for owners (and managers) of local businesses not seeing a return on their websiteadvertising investment.Warning - Sending paid traffic to your website homepage can be a total waste of time and money andmay even be bankrupting your small business.Note - If you have refused to consistently advertise and/or are incorrectly promoting your website,regardless of whether you already enjoy the best brand reputation in your local market or not, thenegative effects are causing you to leave money on the table (read: web-browser)!Stale-Branded (meaning generic business card name address and telephone number) websites actuallyreduce leak’ revenue away from the merchant, small business or practice owners.The Problem: Say 30 people online come to visit your website homepage each day, and leave withoutpurchasing your product or service or opt not to make an appointment with you; the result is You lose100% of any/all benefits by not converting this traffic.Question: Does your site currently have a way or option to capture and follow up with lost visitorsbesides NAP? Does it have a Strong Reason Why visitors should give their - email address? Is there aclear & powerful Call To Action urging the visitors to Telephone? How about an online coupon-redemption application?It your answer to any of the above is NO, then your website in its current format is suffering from whatI (and other online marketing experts) refer to as: SLL (Sales-Loss-Leakage).The Solution: Nothing beats direct contact with a prospective customer, client, and/or patient. Salesconversions are always much higher too, So while I can’t blame merchants for posting their traditionalname, address, and phone numbers - thats a no brainer :-);However, I do fault them with not having the presence of mind to strike while the iron is hot with thewebsite visitor to compel them to act and act now.For Example: Make an Offer (above the fold) on the site to entice them to DO SOMETHING NOW,like call right away, or exchange their NAP (name address+phone+ AND/OR Email for something(info-guide, free analysis, complimentary product, video, newsletter, case-study, report, exam, orcoupon, etc.)?But the potential for SSL(sales-loss-leakage) is why I personally train local business owners how toimprove return on investment and properly promote almost all of their consumer goods, through pay-per-call ad-offers management & creation services. I help them to analyze their campaigns for effectiveconversion of visitors to prospect and call-delivery to sales and confirmed appointment.By setting up Pay Per Call marketing campaigns merchants can now easily track conversion of visitorsto their site, capture potential customers over the phone AND manage how much and what they pay forthese website referrals.
How does Pay Per Call Marketing work?Suppose you have a site for home renovations and roofing business.Step 1 You arrange for HearAndProfit publishing to set-up promote your Heating and AirConditioning Pay Per Call program, your ads will immediately begin targeting homeowners who wanta quote on the installation of a new whole-home heating or cooling system or a new roof.Step 2 The HearAndProfit Pay Per Call program is web-integrated, meaning that we replace yourstandard telephone number with our promo number when we direct traffic to your website. NOTE:where you as a merchants are NOT web-integrated, we place our promo telephone number onto yourwebsite (or in an ad on your flyers or business cards, etc.)Step 3 Your referral prospective customer, client, patient then lands on your page, they phone ourpromo number directly to you and you pay us (for example) $10.00 per call.Granted, there are stipulations regarding call duration and quality that you are in full control of.The Outcome -1.) You pay $10.00 per call if the call duration is greater than say 2 minutes and 12 seconds long andit must come from the the City/Areas your select.2.) Together with HearAndProfit the Merchant evaluate these calls for quality, so if you consistentlyget callers who are not looking for a free quote, or dont meet the standard you set up with us, then ourcommissions will be reversed.3.) On the other hand, if the paid calls are legitimate, fit your prospect-profile and are of goodquality, then our commissions will remain as agreed and you may deem them eligible for bonuses andan increase in call-completion levels billing.Control of EPC’s[Earnings Per Call] by merchants in HearAndProfit Publishings Pay Per Call networkare quite easy for merchants to manage.For example, one Home-Improvement merchant is presently set up to pay no more than:• $121.21 a week for their HVAC site (new install @ 12 qualified calls p/wk.) and• $200.00 a week on their Roofing (new roof quotes @ 10 qualified calls p/wk.), and• $333.33 for quotes on vinyl siding (free in-home estimate @ 11 qualified calls p/wk.).Their Results -33 new appointment requests weekly (up 24% from advertising prior to Pay-Per-Call)- Pretty nice, eh?Pay Per call billings vary considerably, anywhere from $1 – $20 for say a Cable TV or $37 per callwith Bankruptcy Debt-Relief and up to $49 for a Emergency Dental. Likewise call duration anddefinitions of call quality vary from merchant to merchant.
How well does Pay Per Call Marketing work?Based on recent industry reports, Pay Per Call marketing works well for those merchants andprofessional practices who work at it. :-)As reported on Revenews that one service provider added a quarter million bucks in billings by drivingphone calls for his client. Yes there is a learning curve involved and it wont be all roses, but in the end,the effort ADDED to his clients overall income and sales growth.The co-founder and CMO of RingRevenue, wrote the following in Feedfront magazine:"Top Pay-Per-Call providers are converting 10x better than clicks using just Google Adwords. Click-through rates improve 5-30% when promo-phone numbers are included in the ads.
