Halloo Hint: Click-to-Call

Turn website visitors into calling customers! You can convert your website traffic into live sales with Halloo‘s Click-to-Call feature. A simple link on your website, e-mail, or online advertising gives your callers the convenience of one-click calling directly into your sales department.

Click-to-Call has two primary advantages for your small business team:

  • Increased Flexibility
  • Enhanced Reliability

Increased Flexibility

With Click-to-Call, you never reveal your private telephone numbers to your customers. The Halloo system calls your customer first, then connects to you according to your find-me, follow-me rules. Work from home or on your cell phone, and let your callers reach you only when it’s convenient for you.

Enhanced Reliability

Using Click-to-Call also reduces your reliance on a fixed call-in telephone number. You will not “go dark” if your long distance or VoIP carrier has an outage.

With Halloo’s Click-to-Call feature, no complicated web programming is needed. Your click-to-call URL can be pasted directly into eBay®, Yahoo!® and craigslist listings, or into your email signatures.

Email Signature

To add a CallMe! button to your Outlook signature or other email programs, follow these instructions. The key is to create a small file using a text editor like Notepad containing the HTML signature.

  1. Go to the CallMe Button Wizard at Support > Click-to-Call and enter your Account-ID and extension.
  2. Decide how you want your button to look and then copy the HTML from the box in Step-4 into a plain text file using an editor such as Notepad.
  3. Add any other personal information you want to the file, and save it with the name “signature.html.”
  4. In Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Mail Format > Signatures.
  5. Pressing the Signatures button will show you your current signatures (if any). Press [New…].
  6. Pick the option “Use this file as a template:”, and then open your saved “signature.html” file.
  7. Click [Next >] and make any additions needed to the file.
  8. Click [Finish], and when you return to the Options window, select the new signature in the “Signature for new messages:” and “Signature for replies and forwards:” options.
  9. Click [OK] to finish!

That should take care of using the CallMe! button in Outlook. If you need more guidance, take a look at these screenshots.
