eStara, the leading provider of click to call, chat and call tracking solutions that convert online sales, today announced an agreement with performance-based advertising network AzoogleAds to power its new click-to-call service. eStara's technology will provide AzoogleAds advertisers with the opportunity to bid on live transfers that match specific customer criteria.
"To maintain its leadership position, AzoogleAds required a solution that could be deployed quickly while complementing our existing performance-based lead generation programs," said Alex Baydin, VP & GM of Verticals at AzoogleAds. "eStara's solution fits seamlessly with our proprietary Lead Agent technology to offer robust analytics and tracking for our advertisers, and new revenue streams for our publishers."
AzoogleAds is offering this service throughout its affiliate network and through its own vertical sites including mortgage, payday loans, debt consolidation and online education. AzoogleAds' reach extends to more than 14,000 affiliates and partners, including United Airlines, True.com, NetFlix and Chase Manhattan Bank. Baydin adds, "Click to Call allows our advertising partners the opportunity to be connected live to a consumer at the exact moment they are researching one of our advertising partner's products or services. This has proven to provide both an enhanced experience for the consumer and improved ROI for the advertiser." With eStara's wholesale back-end solution, AzoogleAds is able to combine an enterprise-tested technology solution with its expansive pre-existing distribution network to provide greater value to its advertisers.
"Pay per call has a unique potential to benefit advertisers, publishers and search engines, but all of these parties must develop programs that make sense for their businesses," said John Federman, CEO, eStara. "In partnership with eStara, AzoogleAds is able to leverage cutting edge Click to Call and Call Tracking technology to offer its advertisers a private-label pay per call program without the potential channel conflict of working with a traditional third-party pay per call ad network."
