The agreement consists of two primary components involving text-based advertising and "click-to-call" advertising functionality.
Pay Per Call Advertising
Pay Per Call advertising works in a similar manner to pay per click
advertising, but instead of the cost being associated with a user clicking
on a paid listing the cost is associated with the user making a phone call
to the business advertised via a specified toll free phone number provided.
Pay per call ads are displayed within search results similar to pay per
click ads, but a toll free phone number and a url providing business details is provided instead
of a website url. Because of this, a business does not need a website to implement pay per call advertising.
Pay per call costs are typically more expensive than pay per click
advertising, although the marketing tactic generally produces leads that are more qualified.
