Customers search for merchants or service providers in a designated geographic area. Then, relevant listings appear in the Search Results. When your business listing appears in the search results, consumers can reach you via the call tracking # (either local or toll free) that Clicks2Calls BeyondROI provides in your Business Profile. These numbers forward calls directly to your business number and track the calls for billing and reporting purposes.
