AdWords is fundamental for whether you’re looking to bring in new website visitors, grow online sales, get the phones ringing or keep customers coming back for more, Google AdWords developed an essential add-on called AdWords extensions which include a major benefit to your advertising campaigns. AdWords extensions are extra pieces of relevant information within text ads. There are different types of ad extensions, some which are more ideal for certain business types than others. Some of the few include site links, app extensions, location extensions and call-extensions. Call-extensions are a vital key to bringing in leads. In 2016 alone, smartphones will drive 108 billion calls from callers who convert 10-15x more than web leads. It’s not that surprising given the fact you’re probably reading this from your smartphone. Let’s simplify Call-extensions to your advantage.

What are call-extensions? Call-extensions are an extension to your ad that automatically link your phone number and allow people to click the number and call you automatically. Your phone number alone reeks in benefits. It encourages calls to your business by showing your phone number on your ad. The majority of us are on the go and looking up things that are fast and simple. You can display a clickable call button with your ad (on high-end mobile devices). For call-only campaigns, ads will only appear on devices capable of making calls. The pricing costs the same as a headline click (a standard CPC). Call-extensions are a simple way to drive traffic to your business. Call-extensions derive perks from every aspect.
