Pay-per-call Advertising

Pay-per-call advertising campaigns

Performance-based campaigns focused on generating leads and increasing ROI.

The opportunity

Phone calls are an extremely valuable conversion for advertisers. In fact, phone calls influence $1 trillion in U.S. spending at some stage of the path to purchase, according to BIA/Kelsey. 

The challenge

Pay-per-call campaigns won't be successful unless your brand can target the most valuable consumers and optimize campaigns based on performance. 

Our pay-per-call campaigns

Mindstream Media's Pay-per-call advertising campaigns focus on one thing and one thing only: driving qualified calls from targeted audiences. We start with the “Who” and worry about the “Where” later. We do this by designing campaigns around your ideal consumers rather than a list of sites and apps.

The who: Our targeting capabilities

We can hone in on users by:

Their location
Their demographics
The keywords they search
The content they consume
The time of day
Interactive Voice Response (IVR)

The what: Pay-per-call ad types

Because we're more interested in who sees your ads than where they see it, our Pay-per-call campaigns place ads across a variety of platforms. Which means Pay-per-call ads come in a variety of formats.

  • Branded and non-branded search ads
  • Mobile and desktop display ads
  • Local directory listings
  • Print yellow page ads

The where: Our Lead Gen Network

Our ability to focus so much on the user is thanks to our vast partner network of top publishers. The network delivers such a large pool of consumers that we can find and serve ads to targeted audiences anytime, anywhere and on any device.

Mindstream's Lead Gen Network includes:

  • Search engines
  • Mobile apps
  • Digital assistants/voice recognition software
  • Publisher websites
  • Local directories

Call Analysis

Calls are analyzed and broken down to guarantee you only pay for calls from qualified customers.

Performance Reporting

Call tracking is automatically uploaded to the dashboard to provide 24/7 performance reporting.
