  • Figures from Google from 2012 for USA, UK for 2013 is 32%“It’s clear from our findings that driving phone calls should still be a priority for businesses in every industry” - Google
  • On your own date it might be the initial visit that converts, but what happens if it isn’t.If you are investing a lot in social as example and only looking at first click – will social get any mention?

  • Any thoughts on presentation please let me know, I would really appreciate it

    25. 25. Key Points • Don’t discount telephone touch points whether you are lead gen or e-commerce • Call tracking may have been around a while, but the technology is advancing so make sure you take advantage • Make sure you are not optimising on flawed data – look at the whole customer journey, online and offline look how you can integrate your technology to maximise your potential • Look at options to integrate your technology • Track all the way through to sale and optimise for profit – because ‘conversions’ alone are useless • Don’t worry about data overload @Calltracks www.calltracks.com 0203 199 5151 25
