Importance of Tracking Customer Calls
Every time a new deal, i.e., a new development project comes in, 99dotco sets up a web page with information about the project and uses ads to attract potential buyers. Individual sales agents who are interested in selling this new property can purchase a package from 99dotco, which guarantees them a certain number of leads. Whenever a customer calls up the project’s publicised number, they are connected to a sales agent.

Understanding Target Audience via Call Recordings
Marketing teams rarely get to speak to potential customers. However, they are the ones responsible for coming up with content that directly speaks to their target audience.

This helped 99dot co optimize their marketing efforts and come up with better copy for their landing pages, which, in turn, helped increase conversions.
