Why is Call Tracking so Important?
Research shows that phone calls generate 10 to 12 times more conversions than lead forms across all business types. When taking into account mobile devices, 60% of users reported making a call to a business directly from search engine results, emphasizing the importance of mobile-optimized websites with click-to-call features.

What is Call Tracking?
TopSpot utilizes CallRail for call tracking and on average, tracks two to three phone calls for every form submission, which is on par for most B2B businesses. In B2B, phone calls often make up most website conversions, meaning businesses without call tracking lack the visibility of over half their leads.
Call tracking measures offline conversions received via call tracking numbers assigned to landing pages and assets like PDFs, video, or trade show collateral. All tracked phone calls are recorded in real-time and identify the lead source. You can see the incoming number, time, date, duration, and the affiliated company.
This does not impact the user experience on your site or disrupt internal processes, only a quick message notes that the call is being recorded for quality assurance.
Evaluating your phone call recordings can shed light on the quantity and quality of opportunities received from your marketing programs. Listening to phone calls can also highlight opportunities by pointing out areas of your site that could be improved or expanded, including updated navigation, new keywords, and new content. Finally, it also monitors your internal team's management of customers and prospects, keeping a pulse on customer service goals.
