5 Myths of Mobile Marketing Metrics1. Traditional Online Analytics Are Enough2. There Aren’t Enough Mobile Analytics Tools3. Don’t Worry About the Phone4. Track as Much Data as Possible5. Google Adwords Analytics is Enough
Myth I – ‘Traditional’ Analytics Are EnoughMost Common Methods of Mobile Engagement 1. Map Look-Up 68% of mobile searchers lookup maps to a business 2. Phone Calls 61% of all mobile searches result in a call to a business 3. Social Media 59% of mobile users interact with businesses via social media 4. More Research (traditional metrics on a website)
Traditional metrics are important. But they do not measure the mostcommon forms of mobile response
Myth II. Not Enough Mobile Analytics Tools In 2010 30% of mobile marketers said there were not enough analytics to measure ROI – r2integrated, 2010 Not true today - Google Analytics mobile - Call analytics advances - SMS Analytics platforms - SoMo analytics platforms
There are a variety of mobile- specific analytics platforms available. Don‟t settle.
Myth III. – Don’t Worry About The PhoneReport released in June 2012 • Businesses will receive 70 billion calls from mobile devices by 2016. Today that number is 20 billion • Calls to businesses will more than double by the end of 2013 • 20 calls/day now = 41 calls/day in 15 months
Myth III. – Don’t Worry About The Phone• Phone Calls Are High Value Leads – Only 2% - 8% of inbound web leads are ready to buy in 3 months - MECLabs, 2012 – Inbound phone leads are 15-20 times more likely to buy than inbound web leads - ContactPoint, 2012
More phone calls means more urgentneed to track analytics. You should worry about the phone.
Mobile landing pages with only 1-2 formfields convert 60%+ more than pages with more form fields - Atmio
Myth V. Adwords Analytics is EnoughCase Study – Holiday Inn Express• Tactics – Put LogMyCalls local numbers in click-to- call (mobile PPC) ads – Put phone numbers in these ads with phrases like ‘Call us Now’• Results (for every $10K spent) – Google Measured – 1800 calls – Actual Call Analytics • Only 890 Calls Completed (48.3%) • 270 Qualified Opportunities (15%) • 180 Reservations Booked (10%)
Without gathering call analytics CPL, CPA, CPC would have been totally wrongWould alter optimization, ad copy, future spend and assumptions Use a call analytics number as call extension.
The Mobile Sales Funnel Almost all web leads enter the funnel Awareness unready to buy Evaluation Mobile leads are in ‘buying’ Decision mode
