With this use case we show you how Call Tracking in agency environments works and what benefits angencies can generate for their clients.
For many companies, calls are extremely important as a contact and communication channel with their customers. We know that, especially in the B2B sector, many customers and interested parties pick up the phone directly after visiting the website in order to receive precise and comprehensive advice or to enter into direct purchase negotiations. Accordingly, it is important for these companies to know which advertising or marketing measures lead to how many inbound calls. This is almost impossible with conventional tracking methods and technologies. To close this measurement gap between clicks and calls and to offer their customers an efficient tracking and reporting solution for the performance of their campaigns, the agency KlickPiloten was looking for a reliable technology – and found it in matelso’s Call Tracking.
The agency was looking for a way to provide customers and brands like Märklin, Olympus, TÜV Süd or VFB Stuttgart with a proven technology that offers a full 360° view of the success of online and performance marketing campaigns. The focus was on the call channel: a particular challenge, as it was previously difficult – even almost impossible – to establish the connection between an incoming call and an ongoing campaign.
Before starting with matelso’s Call Tracking technology, the KlickPiloten specialists had to rely on inaccurate estimates of the number of calls triggered by campaigns to infer success. Another method: measuring the micro-conversions achieved, such as clicks on a company’s contact page. All these inaccuracies led to unsatisfactory campaign performance, high wastage and low budget efficiency and transparency.
The goal was therefore clearly formulated:
Call Tracking was to achieve better budget allocation and ensure an efficient measurement method for all relevant conversions. In short: more leads for the same budget and a higher marketing ROI.
