How Can You Make Money Using Pay Per Call

Are you launching a new product but worried about advertising it? Are you sure that your products are up to the mark but need just the right advertisement type? Do you not worry, because pay per call has got your back!

Some products, like insurance deals, locksmiths, plumbers, tow truck dealers, builders, or other professional services, require calling services. The buyers look forward to reaching the service providers when looking for these services.

Pay-per-call publishes your ads and ensures that they can reach the relevant audience. These calls can give your sales a big boost, only if you know-how.


Suppose you are an insurance company, who wants to generate their leads via pay per call. For this, you may need a company “Z” that will place the orders with a marketing agency to receive a certain number of calls from specific prospects of interest, whether present or future insurers.

The marketing agency also creates forms, and tracking numbers targeting the right audience and channels, either online or offline.

From a user’s point of view, if I want to get insurance and come across an Ad posted by the company Z, I’ll call the number of its page or fill out a form, which directs me to company Z or a marketing agency.

Next, the agency will evaluate if I’m a serious buyer and eventually direct me to company Z’s sales department, where they’ll sell me the insurance.

If they’re successful in selling the product, they will get their commission, or if the buyer’s call lasted for the minimum required duration, they’d be paid according to the contract.


Some baby-steps you can take for affiliate advertising/marketing via pay per call are;

  • Choose the best and relevant niche
  • Choose a pay per call network/offer
  • Start promoting the offer


You should consider a few factors while choosing a niche, offers, and promoting the offer.


When you’re starting, it is imperative to stand out. Niches help with the uniqueness. Remember that your targeted audience is the one who wants to buy something rather than scrolling casually.

Therefore, when you are selecting a niche, ensure that you use lower-volume key phrases. You have to target higher sales than higher calls/clicks. Say a person has to buy jackets. He will search for “best jackets” instead of “best clothes,” right?

This is how you can cut out unnecessary traffic.


First and foremost, you should discuss the billing models. There are two kinds; revenue share and duration-based payouts. Revenue share allows you and the publisher to share the revenue generated from sales, unlike duration-based payouts that require you to pay the publisher if a call exceeds a specific time limit – regardless if they bought the product or not.

Next comes the promotional method. You and your publisher should be on the same page regarding the ways you will use for promotion. The Interactive Voice Response also plays a crucial role in determining if your consumer will stay on call or hang up.


No matter how good, a person can never sell a product without promoting it in the right way. Social Media, newspapers, directories, direct mails, blogs, or display Ads are some potential options for promotion. The medium you select for promoting the product should depend upon the audience you are targeting.

If you’re selling something for the youth, newspapers can be the worst option. Likewise, if you’re selling something for older people, social media can be a bad option.


People do not always prefer automation, so human interference in online sales can boost your sales considerably. If you want to witness it yourself, put in a wiser approach while choosing a niche, pay per call offers, and promotion tricks, and see the magic done before your eyes.
