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 link) from their Smartphone to initiate a call to any phone number WITH JUST ONE CLICK OR TOUCH!
To facilitate that interaction between you and your prospective customers, provide the ability for your website visitors to call your phone number on EVERY PAGE by using the HTML5 Link Telephone Protocol.
I use graphics at the top of the web page to promote my logo and domain name that when clicked, automatically generates a call. Also have a "Call to Action" paragraph at the bottom of every page encouraging the visitors to either call or send me an email.
Problems Displaying Telephone Numbers on Web pages
❌ Some websites are designed where the business phone number is not clearly visible on every page or easy to find!
❌ If your website visitor is using a desktop or a laptop, there are very few software applications that allow the ability to initiate a phone call.
❌ 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.
