Baker Labs Doubles Leads for Its Healthcare Clients with CallRail: The Marketing Agency Helps Medical Firms Gain More Potential Customers with Call Tracking and Recording Software

Article excerpt

Baker Labs is a six-person, Knoxville, Tenn.--based agency that helps more than 30 local and national healthcare organizations improve their digital marketing strategies. This effort boils down to helping these organizations track how their customers are finding them, and how effective their customer interactions are.

"In our client relationships, ultimately, we're judged by what type of results we can produce for them," explains Gavin Baker, owner of Baker Labs. "And so attribution of how many new clients, patients--whatever they're tracking--is important. In our case, we were finding that only so much of that tracking that can be done from someone filling out an online form. It differs by industry, but there's a percentage of the population that would like to make a phone call and talk to a real person, to either book an appointment or have a conversation."

Baker Labs decided it was time to gain insights about its clients' phone calls, as well as the online sources that led to those calls. The agency started exploring call tracking software and evaluated four competing solutions before it ultimately chose CallRail. "We looked at ease of use, extensibility, and pricing, and CallRail won the majority of those," Baker recalls.

Baker Labs deployed CallRail in 2015. The company was using HubSpot to hold its customer records, so it built a custom integration, via Zapier's app integration service, to get CallRail data linked into it. With the integration in place, Bakers Labs was able to start capturing the data its clients were getting from customer phone calls.

"It was the first time we had done call tracking, so there were some elements we had to figure out," Baker says. "About a month or a month and a half after we started using CallRail, they came out with their own HubSpot integration that worked even better than the one we'd built."

The process is fairly straightforward, Baker says. The company simply places a line of code on its clients' websites. Then the system generates a different local phone number for each visitor that comes to its online property, taking into account the source they were browsing that led them to the page. "We know, in our reporting, how many people called because of Google organic search, or how many people came in through Facebook, or how many people came through advertising," Baker explains. …
