Tel Link protocol

What is a Tel Link protocol?

Tel-link protocols are used for setting up calling options online (click-to-call). By using a tel-link protocol a phone number call link is created on a website, usually in a form of a text link, button or image. By clicking on this link, customers can start a direct phone call connected to a phone number of your choice. Most modern web browsers support automatic number detection, so phone numbers get automatically turned into links. Sometimes you might want to do it by yourself.

Customers do not need to download software other than standard plugins, such as Flash. This removes concerns about downloading harmful software, such as malware or spyware. A lot of click-to-call technology is a clientless web-to-phone service, which means the call takes place outside the user’s computer.

Providing customers with a click to call option is a valuable option since it allows customers to communicate directly with your agents.

How do you hyperlink a phone number?

It’s simple. Copy the code below to your website and replace the phone number between the quotations marks with your own. After you save the changes, you should see your phone number hyperlinked on your website. After your customers click on the link a phone communication between them and your agent is set up. 

<a href=”tel:1-234-567-1111″>1-234-567-1111</a>

<a href=”tel:1-234-567-1111″>Click to Call</a>
