New Facebook “Call Now” Feature for Local Businesses

Posted by Kerry Fitzgibbon

Facebook has just introduced a new “Call Now” Call-to action-button for local businesses. This new feature will allow businesses to promote their products or services in the newsfeed and have their customers contact them with just a push of a button straight from the advert.

So now when you run a local awareness advert in Facebook you have a choice of two Call-To-Actions:

  • Call Now. When a person clicks on the “Call Now” button in your advert, their phone will automatically dial your business.
  • Get Directions. When a person clicks on the “Get Directions” button, they will be guided directly to your location directly from their phone.

I would suggest this button would work best for service related businesses.  Have a great compelling reason for people to call and book with you.  I will be trying this out and will let you know the results.  I would love to hear from people who use it and their results as well.

Happy Facebook Advertising
