Marchex, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHX), a leader in mobile performance advertising, today announced a partnership with Geary LSF, a leading digital agency based in San Francisco. Marchex will provide Geary LSF with Call Analytics technology to boost customer conversions for the agency’s clients. By integrating Marchex Call Analytics, Geary LSF will better understand the optimal media mix for its clients’ ad campaigns. Marchex will aggregate campaign performance data, revealing which ads and keyword searches drive phone calls. Marchex’s technology also measures the quality of each call and significantly reduces unwanted calls from telemarketers, among other advanced features. “Marchex Call Analytics is an invaluable technology for our clients with high call volume. In a data-driven business such as digital advertising, and specifically paid search, these insights allow Geary LSF to continue delivering more customers per campaign,” said Dan Oleson, Managing Director of the Geary LSF San Francisco office.
