What is Pay Per Call?
In 2004, Ingenio pioneered the industry's first Pay Per Call advertising system, allowing any business to capitalize on the popularity of Internet search and drive targeted, inbound phone leads. With Ingenio, advertisers can quickly create listings, set their own prices and reach millions of ready-to-buy customers via the Ingenio Advertising Network, which represents over a billion searches per month with partners like AOL® Search, AOL Yellow Pages, Switchboard, and other leading search and directory sites. The Ingenio Pay Per Call advertising service works similarly to click-based advertising, except that it drives phone leads to a business' phone, rather than clicks to a business' website.
Who Can Use Pay Per Call?
Any business or service provider (with or without a website) - across a wide range of business categories such as legal, financial services, home improvement, travel, automotive, beauty salons, florists and more - can use Ingenio Pay Per Call advertising. From your local plumber to your national hotel chain, everyone can use Ingenio Pay Per Call to drive phone calls instead of clicks. Phone leads are a proven way to build customer relationships and close sales.
