The smartphone era has vaulted the importance of phone calls as high-value, high-intent lead sources for business – an opportunity termed “call commerce.”

Learn about all the factors converging to create a tremendous opportunity for marketers. This report covers where call commerce is today, where it’s going tomorrow, and what you need to start doing and thinking yesterday.

About Industry Watch Reports

BIA/Kelsey’s Industry Watch series examines key trends and opportunities in tech and media sectors. Applying BIA/Kelsey’s analytical and editorial eye, it selects topics based on the criteria of industry growth, disruption, opportunity or notable lessons.

These reports join BIA/Kelsey’s editorial calendar, with the additional opportunity for companies to underwrite distribution. This includes industry players that wish to bring reports out from the paywall, thereby amplifying the marketplace’s access to, and awareness of, a given topic. Underwriters get brand benefit in being associated with the free and open distribution of an industry report.


Marchex has underwritten the distribution of this report. BIA/Kelsey maintains editorial independence throughout all stages of production. Report contents are not co-produced or influenced by underwriters, though they can provide source material and data on which analysts build narrative, at their full discretion.
