How to Track and Optimize Your Marketing Campaigns

Mitch Schneider
June 26, 2013

Want to take the guesswork out of marketing and ensure you’re spending your money wisely? We’ve put together this webinar to help you learn how to cut your marketing budget by identifying which elements of your campaigns give you the best ROI.

In this webinar, we’ll be going over 4 main aspects of how to track and optimize your marketing campaigns .

  1. Marketing Channel & Traffic Source
    Let’s focus on 2 channel segments – Marketing  Channel. What channel did your clients come in from?  Did they come in from PPC, SEO, Email marketing, Referral, social networks?
    Traffic source – Not a specific marketing channel,e.g. Google, Bing, Yahoo. We used a segmented view funnel so we can see side by side conversion.
  2. Landing Page Optimization
    We identified problem areas. This specific marketing channel isn’t performing the way we like, so instead of leaving it entirely, we want to understand how to improve this weak area. How do we maximize the interaction here? The first area to focus on is the landing page.  Improving your landing page performance not only boosts your SEO ranking, but in terms of  paid traffic and PPC you see it increases your Adwords quality score which lowers your cost per click on both display and PPC campaigns. The key here is to understand the visitor intentions. When you know why your visitors is looking for your site and what they want to do you can then tailor your landing page exactly towards what they are looking for. A/B test your landing page so you’re not guessing what works and what doesn’t work.
  3. Keyword Optimization
    Understanding the intention behind a search term is the key behind high-converting marketing campaigns.  A lot of times we’ll  break up marketing campaigns based solely on linguistics and semantics. When we really should be looking at what the visitor was looking to accomplish when they put in a search keyword? What’s their intended activity? Once you understand that, you’ll be able to tailor the experience, the advertisement and the landing page directly back to the visitor and it will increase conversions . This will also help you budget wisely so that  in terms of paid marketing campaigns understanding how visitors from a specific keyword react helps you understand what keywords are worth placing a higher bid on.
  4. Integrations
    You have to look at the full picture in order to take as much of the guess work out of marketing as possible. You need to make sure that data does not stand alone. You’re not just getting one picture from one side, you should look for the full picture of visitor interactions, both quantitatively and qualitatively. Understand why one factor converts better than another.
