As a marketing agency, this is more than enough for you to be able to invest your customer’s marketing budget to marketing actions that provenly work.
But how about your customer?

3. Top 5 Call Tracking KPIs and Metrics
When configuring the dashboard that you will share with your clients, it’s important not to miss any key KPIs and metrics. Below we suggest the KPIs and metrics that are a must and should be included in every call tracking dashboard.
1. Call Summary
A quick overview of the key metrics of your calls which includes:
- Total Calls
- Total Answered Calls
- Total Minutes
- Average Call Duration
- Unique Callers
- New Callers
2. Total Calls by day
This report will give you a breakdown of total calls per day / per marketing source. Watch out for any spikes out of the ordinary which may indicate that one of your marketing campaigns is performing really well!
3. Calls by marketing source
This report will show you a list of the top marketing sources bringing calls. Very important to assess how well each marketing channel is performing.
4. Missed Callers
These are customers who called you, never connected with you or one of your agents, and never called back again. The list will provide you with their number so you can call them back.
5. Average calls per hour and day
This KPI shows you which day and what time your customers prefer to call you. Monitor this report to check if any calls are not being handled and when is the best time and day to promote your product or service.
4. What Marketing Channels Should be Included?
Another essential part of the dashboard is to include all the marketing channels you are running paid campaigns, but also include channels that drive traffic to your site organically. This way you will be able to accurately assess which channels are driving calls and which don’t. A typical call tracking dashboard includes the following channels:
- Organic searches (Google, Yahoo, Bing)
- Online paid ads (Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Bing Ads, etc.)
- Social Media (Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter, etc.)
- Referral traffic (blogs, reddit, yelp, etc.)
- Any custom campaigns you might be running with UTM parameters
