Ever visit a site on your mobile phone and experience how easy it is to just click a phone number on a website to call a local business? Smart phones have changed the way we display our phone numbers on websites. Consumers can easily call you from your website without writing down or manually dialing your number. Believe it or not, this makes a difference.
If you want to make a click-to-call phone number link in WordPress, just use the regular link HTML code:
That will look like this: 555-555-5555
Here’s a Bootstrap click-to-call button code snippet:
<a class="btn btn-lg btn-primary" href="tel:5555555555">555.555.5555</a>
For those of you who want nothing to do with HTML, just use a plugin!
There are two the work great, and every business should have one of these on their website. Click to call button and Call Now Button are both free plugins that offer the same thing, but with a slightly different look.
Anyone that understands the basics of WordPress can install one of these plugins and have a mobile click-to-call button on their site. The click to call button plugin by Andy Moore has a nicer rounded call button and the icon is a bit more stylish, but you should pick the plugin that goes best with your website’s design.
