ClickFuel Business Customers Select Ifbyphone-Powered Service, Using Trackable Phone Numbers to Pinpoint Sources of Sales Leads and Create High Impact Campaigns
CHICAGO – Ifbyphone announced that ClickFuel, a full-service Internet marketing innovator, is using Ifbyphone’s call-tracking services to provide small and medium businesses (SMBs) with advanced tools for tracking online ads that generate phone calls. Since ClickFuel added the service to its suite of advertising intelligence offerings, every new ClickFuel customer has implemented Ifbyphone’s call-tracking technology.
SMBs typically receive 75 to 90 percent of their sales leads by phone, but traditionally Internet marketing firms have been able to track only online sales leads for their customers. ClickFuel’s new service is the latest example of how marketers are leveraging Ifbyphone’s suite of applications to improve the success of their customers’ advertising campaigns.
“The huge void for SMBs has been in phone sales lead tracking, with most firms focusing on website checkouts, submitted requests and downloads,” said ClickFuel founder and online marketing industry veteran, Colby West. “With Ifbyphone’s service, we assign specific phone numbers to each customer’s advertisements to determine – based on the number of leads for the ad money spent – which efforts are working and which ones need to be re-examined.”
With Ifbyphone’s call-tracking service, ClickFuel can now identify the source of sales leads its SMB customers receive. Additionally, Ifbyphone’s Google Analytics Integration makes it possible to track phone calls directly alongside website data in Google Analytics. Using trackable phone numbers, ClickFuel can better optimize customer campaigns and accurately assess their return on investment (ROI).
ClickFuel also chose Ifbyphone’s call-tracking services because of the company’s price structure, where customers pay only for minutes used.
“Other providers assess high monthly usage and/or billing minimums, which may work for the largest corporations but would have put our services out of reach for SMBs,” West said. “Ifbyphone’s approach is a perfect match for our customers and for us.”
“ClickFuel is a crystal-clear example of how marketing and advertising firms are improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their customers’ sales efforts using our phone automation services,” said Ifbyphone CEO Irv Shapiro. “The marketing industry is hard at work evaluating and implementing economical tools to help their SMB customers – which don’t have the internal expertise – make the most of their advertising and sales efforts.”
