We’re going to show you how to add a tap-to-dial to your website.
There are a few ways to add a tap-to-dial to your WordPress website.
APPROACH #1: Just add a link
Adding a tap-to-dial can be as easy as adding a link. Let’s say you have a post where you simple want to add a “Call Us — 856-701-7947.” Accomplishing this can be as easy as this:
- Highlight the text
- Click on “add hyperlink”
- Type the link as tel:856-701-7947
- Click “apply”
APPROACH #2: Write the code
If you’re not putting the link in a post or page, you may need to write some simple html. This is how you do it:
- Call us at <a href=”tel:856-701-7947″>856-701-7947</a>
The 856-701-7947 will come up as a hyperlink that will allow a smartphone to automatically dial it.
APPROACH #3: Use a cool plugin
There’s something to be said for this. I’ve found the times that we’ve used these plugins on the websites that we’ve developed here in South Jersey, the green “tap to dial” button at the bottom of the screen tends to get more clicks than the buttons in other parts of the phone. It might be worth testing. It will look something like this image to the right.
The plugin that we used to do this is called “Call Now Button” (I know, hard to remember). Setting it up is as simple as you could ever want:
There is no reason to not have a tap-to-dial on your WordPress site.
If you currently don’t, it’s because either:
- You hired the worst web developer in the world
- You are too lazy to Google stuff (and you never read this post)
Get your tap-to-dial up on your site and start getting more of your customers on the phone.
