    • Segments convert 100-500% better than home page control 22
    • Beyond the website Free of the encumbrances of the brand website—more agile, easier to apply testing & learning for each unique source of traffic Ad-specific destination matches the message the user clicked on Conversion-focused destination User-directed, marketer controlled (vs. user controlled) 23
    • The ad and the landing experience need to match 24
    • Organic traffic Low degree of marketer control Diverse audience funneling in Customers Prospective customers Press Investment community Page needs to appeal to LCD 25
    • Campaign traffic Higher degree of marketer control Very specific placement (or keyword) and ad and link You KNOW with certainty what creative unit they clicked on You are in control of where they land You paid for them to click!!! 26
    • The ad & the landing experience have to match 27
    • Ad promises free guide This page is all about a free consultation and doesn’t mention a guide 28
    • Banner ad says “take control with a unified IP contact center” and promises a free white paper. This page is about the Tyranny of CTI, and offers a white paper. What happened to taking control with a unified IP contact center? 29
    • You don’t need one landing page 30
    • You need many 31
    • 100’s of landing pages like this helped improve conversions 600% 32
    • Find out who they are and what they want 33

    • Pre-conversion Segmentation 1. Find out who they are and/or what they want 2. Give it to them 3. They will convert 49
    • 5 reasons for preconversion segmentation 50
    • 1. Easy engagement Clicking an ad=5 seconds First choice on a landing page=also 5 seconds 51
    • 2. Self-identification We respond to self-identification clues More accurate than a form field Sets expectations 52
    • 3. More focused Contextually relevant content sells better Subtle shifts in language can have a big impact Eliminates clutter 53
    • 4. Signaling Investment reflects commitment “If you target me, you must think I am a good fit” Let’s the user know they are in the right place (or not)—”there’s something for me here” 54
    • 5. Market research Which ads attract which segments? Which segments convert best? How do prospects think of themselves? 55
