80% of all phone numbers are found on the web not the yellow pages
As product and service purchases become more complicated, and transaction sizes increase, customers are demanding personal and customized online experiences. In an online world filled with choices, brand loyalty has become increasingly difficult to capture.
These customers are not only more valuable, but more costly to lose. Therefore, servicing them effectively has never been more important. Successful companies engage customers proactively based on their individual sales and support needs to minimize abandonment, maximize sales conversions and up sell.
What is Click-To-Call?
We all have been to the local mall, and visited numerous stores. Most of the time while looking at items in a store you are greeted by a sales clerk who asks you "May I help you find what you are looking for today?" or a simple "Can I help you?" Sales clerks minimize abandonment, maximize sales conversions and up sell.
Take the same scenario on-line. You arrive at a web site to browse for new designer shoes and find that you're having trouble finding the items. Simply click the Free Click-To-Call link and follow the instructions. You are instantly connected to the business to get the help you need. This helps reduce web site abandonment while maximizing sales conversions and creates the opportunity to up sell.

Customers agree, WebMenu's Free Click-to-Call solution is ideal for boosting online revenue to:
Increase purchase potential: Compared with other inbound communication services, companies using Click-to-Call report significantly higher close rates. Continental Airlines reported that Click-to-Call interactions are twice as likely to result in flight bookings compared to other inbound calls handled by reservation agents.
Provide preferred channel: The reach of the internet has not displaced the ubiquity and personal nature of the telephone for completing transactions. According to one analyst report, 73% of consumers who have used phone-based customer service said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the service, while only 49% of FAQ users and 53% of site search users said the same.
Alleviate security concerns: Up to one third of Web shoppers are still reluctant to provide credit card numbers online. Click-to-Call has been proven to increase sales at the "moment of truth", when an online customer is asked for credit card information, by providing the opportunity for a sales agent to collect the information by phone.
Reduce Web site Abandonment: Can you imagine a store where six of every 10 customers walk out without having a sales representative first ask if they needed assistance? It wouldn't be long before that store went out of business. Unfortunately, this level of abandonment is common for Internet retailers. Recent surveys of e-marketers cite nearly 60% of online shoppers abandon before completing a transaction.
Reasons for abandonment differ. Some customers prefer not to provide financial information online; others have questions about specific items or store policies. At the crucial decision-making moment that defines the shopper as a browser or a buyer, the company's ability to provide the most appropriate communication service to deal with the consumer’s concerns could make the difference.
Using Click-to-Call combined with business rules (such as shopping cart value, time spent on a particular page, etc.) and real-time analytics, companies can identify patterns and determine which customers are most likely to abandon. Organizations can then proactively engage the shopper in a dialogue - via voice - where an agent can help the consumer complete the transaction.
WebMenu has seen customer results showing that offering the right contact, at the right time, can reduce shopping cart abandonment by as much as 30%.
Improve Customer Service: Standard phone calls cause a disruptive gap in the customer experience because customers are forced to abandon their Web sessions and start all over again with a call center agent. The ability to smoothly transition customers from a Web session to a live phone call is one of the most crucial benefits of WebMenu's Free
