‘Click to Text’ is a Winner on Mobile Sites!

An example of a mobile site with the ‘Click to Text’ feature

Last month in this section we spoke about that we were in early days of testing ‘Click to Text’ functionality on dedicated mobile sites. This functionality enables the mobile site visitor to click one button and then be able to send the business owner a text.
