Pay Per Call: Crossing the PPC Chasm [Infographic]

You know we’re all about PPC. Of course we are. We love it, and it’s kept us in business for awhile. But that’s not all that we are. Did you know we also do pay per call?

Which is why I love looking at the relationship between clicks and calls. Nerdy, I know. Woohoo, comparisons and analysis! But pay per call advertising is really unique. It’s simultaneously online and offline, digital and analog, old school and new. Honestly, I find it more interesting than pay per click (don’t tell my coworkers). But also more confusing.

That’s why I was excited to find this great infographic from Invoca. Sure, by the time I found it, I was already convinced of pay per call’s benefits. But for those who aren’t, this data can’t be ignored.

Let’s jump in.
