    Interesting research. What we sometimes forget as marketers is that our smartphones are still just that – a phone. It would be nice to see phone leads included when looking at mobile metrics, as well as call tracking technology when considering tools marketers use in their mobile initiatives.

    And especially, as more and more people are using smartphones to search for and access local businesses information, click-to-call is enabling them to easily contact you. If you aren’t measuring calls from your search ads and other digital marketing, your analytics could be way off. Ifbyphone has a white paper on tracking calls from local search that explains more: public.ifbyphone.com/landingpage/marketers-guide-call-tracking-local-search
