Problems with calls only campaigns

Not many, but there are a few.

It is quite expensive since you have to pay for each phone call you receive
Users might click on your ad with no intention to call thus your money for that click goes to waste.

But if you factor that in compared to running ads to get clicks that you hope will turn into a lead, I mean if you are looking for local or national lead gen, then we’d suggest running calls only as a separate campaign. Have one going after search and one for calls.
