Understand where your calls are coming from
You can use tracking numbers on any form of advertising from direct mail and brochures through to your website where you can track each individual visitor and the keyword they used to search for you.
By default, web analytics software can’t track customers that visit your site and then pick up the phone, so your reports may not be an accurate reflection of your performance. This could force you to base decisions off incomplete data.
With Visitor Level Tracking from Calltracks you are able to fill this gap – seeing exactly what drives your customers to pick up the phone alongside other conversion metrics such as form fills, events and e-commerce transactions. This allows you to make more informed decisions.
- Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
- Paid Search and Retargetting (such as Google Adwords)

- Keyword (and match type)
- Page(s) viewed (before, during and after the call)
- Plus much more…
As well as being able to report by source (e.g. Google) you can also drill-down the above features.
Visitor Level Tracking
Visitor level tracking even captures the multiple touch points and visits that combine to make up just one visitors total interaction with your website or web properties over a period of time.
You no longer need to isolate landing pages for particular campaigns to track the full impact they have which allows you to further understand how your different channels such as SEO, PPC and retargeting work together. This Calltracks system even lets see how your customers refine their search queries through the sales cycle and attributes on more than simply a last-click model.
The Call Tracking software comes with a variety of default reports and includes the ability to produce completely customised ones as well, showing you the data you want in the way you want it.
With Calltracks you can feed your phone calls into your Google Analytics, and even set them up as goals
Furthermore, Calltracks data can be integrated with many 3rd party software applications, for example Google Analytics, so you can see how phone calls compliment ‘online’ conversions such as form fills, ecommerce transactions, and other custom events.
Based on the results from Calltracks you can adjust your budget, reducing spend on channels and keywords that are costing money but not converting and reinvest into those that are.

How it works
Tracking numbers that Calltracks provide you will ‘forward’ calls to your existing landline or mobile. Whether creating a new number for an advertisement through the user friendly interface, or installing the code on your website for Visitor Level Tracking, you can pick whatever type of number you want to use from 0800 freephone to local geographic.
As the software ‘forwards’ calls this means it will not affect your existing phone system or any hardware you have in place. Calltracks is also cloud based so you can access the system and reports from anywhere and you do not need to invest in additional systems.
Once you have added the code to your website each destination phone number you want tracked becomes a “Dynamic Number” and the software will automatically change this number so each visitor sees a slightly different variation of it. As the software then knows which number was served to a specific visitor the associated web data, such as the keyword the visitor used, can be linked to a phone call. The quantity of tracking numbers you will require to sit in the background to allow your Dynamic Number to function correctly depend on your traffic volumes but Calltracks are able to cater for all sizes of business.
Calltracks also place a cookie on each visitor which allows you to track their interaction with your website before, during and after the phone call. Even though they may not call on the first visit to your website, if they come back later you get to see the whole journey and associated history where applicable.
