Google’s new research shows an average click-to-call conversation length of six minutes, suggesting the option can lead to decent level of engagement. 72% of click-to-call conversations lasted longer then 30 seconds.

 

Usually PPC campaigns are setup to take people to landing pages or website. But problem is landing pages or website convert 3% on average. It takes time and energy to write a good copy, design a good page, make sure its responsive etc.

This technique bypasses your landing page and gets customer to call you on your business directly. They are ready to buy, they need help and you are right there on the phone to help them.
