Allow website visitors to call you with just ONE TOUCH to the screen

Click-to-Call, also known as Click-to-Talk, is a form of Web based communication in which a person clicks an object (e.g., button, image or text) from their Smartphone to initiate a phone call with just ONE CLICK or ONE TOUCH to the screen!

🚩 If you show your phone number on a web page as a standard HTML text, only a few web browsers will automatically convert that phone number to a link that when clicked, the Smartphone will initiate a phone call.

🚩 If your website visitor is using a tablet, desktop or a laptop, there are very few software applications that allow the ability to initiate a phone call.
