Click to Call FAQs

How does click to call work?

Typically, it works by initiating inbound or outbound calls between two people at the click of a button, most commonly between business organizations and their customers.

In outbound and inbound calls by businesses

You are required to download and install the VoIP phone system and integrate it with your CRM. Once integrated, you can click a phone number from your CRM, and the phone system calls you and the dialed number simultaneously. You can answer your phone and start communicating once the recipient is connected.

In inbound calls by website visitors

When a click-to-call button is placed on web pages, websites, chatbots, etc., it is hard coded with a telephone number. Customers click the button, and the link redirects it to their phone dialer opening it to make the call.

Click to call uses VoIP technology to automatically initiate a call between two people at the click of a button. When you click a phone number in your CRM, Ringover’s integrated phone system calls you and your recipient at the same time—all you have to do is answer when the other party is connected.

When you include click to call buttons on your website, links are hard-coded with your telephone number. That means that when a potential customer clicks on your call to action, they’ll be redirected to their phone app, where a call will already be on its way to you.

Why do I need a click to call button on my website?

Click to call brings up your phone number and the option to call your business immediately. Why is this important? While your website provides important and useful information, some visitors just want to speak to a real person. That’s where click to call can help eliminate frustration and improve your customer experience.

Click to call on web pages can also lead to higher conversions for a number of reasons. First, you get the chance to upsell customers over the phone. Moreover, web visitors that call your business are ripe to buy—give them the answers they’re looking for, and you’re all set for a sale.

Can I click to call on mobile?

Ringover supports click to call across devices, including softphones, smartphones, and desk phones.

Does click to call apply internationally?

Yes, click to call works locally and around the world, eliminating the guesswork when it comes to country codes.

What is click-to-call in digital marketing?

How do I set up click-to-call?

Let us find out how to set up click-to-call for inbound and outbound calls:

Click-to-call for outbound calls

Activating the click-to-call functionality for inbound or outbound calls using a VoIP phone system is easy. Using the web interface or app of the VoIP provider, you can activate the feature with a few clicks of your mouse.

Start by downloading the app of your VoIP service provider or visiting their web interface. After choosing your number and plans, follow the instructions mentioned on the screen to activate the feature.

Once the feature is activated, integrate your CRM into the system. After the CRM integration, phone numbers collected from various channels such as websites, chatbots, emails, social media, etc. will be displayed on the dashboard with a click-to-call button next to the numbers. Your team can make calls just by clicking the call button.

Click-to-call for inbound calls

Click-to-call buttons for inbound calls are placed on your websites or inside chatbots. If you have a WordPress or WIX website, you can activate the click-to-call feature by using a plugin or adding an HTML code. You can install the plugin and follow the instructions to activate the feature or get in touch with your developer.

What is a click-to-call button?

A click-to-call button, as the name suggests, is a button that helps customers connect with your team by clicking on the button displayed on the website that asks a visitor to click to make a call. There are three ways the feature works:

  • Click to request a callback – A customer clicks on the request call button displayed on your site/app and keys in their number. Your agents can get back to them.
  • VoIP click-to-call – Customers can directly get connected to your support team when they click on the click-to-call button displayed on the site. The call is placed using VoIP technology. Users can make calls either from a desktop or a phone.
  • Click-to-call on a smartphone – When customers use the click-to-call button, a normal call using their cellphone carrier will be placed. You can display a toll-free VoIP number, landline, or cell phone number.

Customer support agents or sales teams can also take advantage of click-to-call buttons. You need to integrate your CRM into the VoIP business communication system and activate the click-to-call feature.
