  • 28. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesA Summary of Metrics for Lead Generation PPC  The Priority KPIs  Return on Investment (ROI). The ultimate goal; is the campaign giving you positive return. This is where using dashboards like marketing automation and Salesforce apps come in handy to match revenue from complex sales with PPC metrics.  Conversion Rate. The number of conversions divided by the number of clicks. The metric acts as a barometer of relevancy; content/offer-landing page-call-to- action, ad relevancy, and keyword relevancy are all integral to optimizing this metric.  Cost-Per-Conversion (or Lead) and Cost-Per Acquisition (Sale) The PPC ad cost divided by the number of lead conversions or sales. In the middle is CPO, or cost-per-opportunity. The Cost-per-Conversion metric is a measure of efficiency, and is driven by strategic bidding and quality score management, as well as proper conversion architecture. CPA and CPO are driven by nurturing and the sales conversion process throughout the funnel. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 29. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesProjected ROI: Lead Generation Sites  Not as easy to measure; complex sales take a while between form submission or sign-up conversion and sales resolution  Options:  Track “conversion rate” and “cost-per-conversion” for every day optimization from the Adwords interface,  Use Google’s integration with Salesforce or marketing automation platforms that include search marketing modules to measure click-to- opportunity-to-sale activity via integration with CRMs.  Create custom dashboards (similar to the basic ones shown in this ebook) to manage pipeline activity from click to sales © 2010 Mike Moran

  • 36. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesFollow the Funnel with PPC; An Example Based onExisting Pipeline Conversion Rates  Spend $5,000 on PPC, CPC is $2.00, 2,500 clicks gathered  25% conversion rate from landing page; 625 content downloads  Lead nurturing occurs, sales calls occur, qualification process occurs, eventually 5% of the leads who downloaded the initial content become sales opportunities, or 32  10% opportunity-to-close conversion, or 3 sales  Average net profit per sale is $5,000, or $15,000  ROI: 200% © 2010 Mike Moran

  • 39. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesOther Costs to Consider  The costs to nurture leads into sales via the funnel should ideally be included. The problem is, these costs are spread across all lead generation activities, like social media, SEO, advertising, email, trade shows, etc, as they all go through the nurturing process.  The cost of sales people to follow-up and engage with prospects from PPC is another factor for true ROI calculations © 2010 Mike Moran

  • 45. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesSETTINGS STRATEGY © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 46. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesLocation Targeting Study your sales regions. Any underperforming or over performing? Consider a separate campaign for a target sales region that needs emphasis. Strategically give each region a unique budget based on sales goals and expected revenue. Start with a benchmark percent of revenue for budgeting, and adjust accordingly based on sales region activity © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 47. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation Services Sample Settings:Advanced Location Targeting  Geographic target: New York City  Excluded geography: New Jersey • Do you mind reaching audiences in another state that use the term “New York” in their query? If so, do nothing, if not, just target Physical LocationPhysical Location: Target those in your • If you only want your ads to show if the searchdefined geography query includes a location in your geography, target using search intentSearch Intent: Target those • If you don’t want your ads to show at all in yourANYWHERE who combine search excluded geography, do nothing (default)query with a location term within your • If you don’t want your ads to show in yourdefined geography excluded geography, or if a user searches for a location term in your geography, choose exclude search intent © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 48. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesAd Scheduling Another reason to have unique campaigns by sales region is to optimize time zones, especially targeting 8a-6p M-F. Google doesn’t recognize time zones, so running ads starting at 8a ET means the ads run 5a PT. Additionally, if the work day is of most importance, Google allows you to increase bids by time period, or by day of week. Be careful to reduce bid percentages as well during non-key days/times so that the total budget balances out. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 49. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesAd Delivery For lead generation activity, two strategies are recommended: a. Optimize for conversions: Better performing ads will appear more frequently b. Rotate ads evenly; Ideal for ad copy testing, then after analysis, do option a. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 50. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesDevice Targeting  Tablets and Smartphones continue to grow in penetration. If for any reason your research says your audience doesn’t use these devices, or your landing pages aren’t optimized for mobile, tablets, or certain operating systems, then you may deselect these options. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 51. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesBidding Options  If Adwords automatically sets bids, there is no manual bidding for your keywords. Use automatic budget optimizing for a campaign where specific bidding is not crucial to your ROI and you just prefer exposure.  Enhanced CPC. If you’re tracking conversions, Google will automatically adjust bids to optimize conversion rate. Bid can increase up to 30%  Conversion Optimizer. If you have enough conversion history, Google will optimize CPC based on cost- per-action bids. There’s no ceiling on bid increases, because reaching your target CPA is the goal. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 52. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesMore on Conversion Optimizer (Cost Per Action)  Adwords recommends a maximum CPA bid, but you can customize it as well  Target CPA is the average you want to pay for a conversion, rather than a max.  Suggestions  Test CPA bidding in a separate campaign; split your budget, and analyze results comparing CPA vs CPC tactics with regard to conversions  Test within ad groups, and adjust accordingly. Keep the test simple; don’t make other campaign changes.  Best used for high traffic/high conversion advertisers. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 53. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesEnhanced CPC vs. Conversion Optimizer  Enhanced CPC  Conversion Optimizer  Google automatically  CPA bidding increases/decreases CPC based on chances of conversion  Google adjusts CPC based on historical data; CPC bids adjusted  Google looks at history, automatically to reach CPA goals geography, browser settings, time of day, to predict bid  So CPC bids are adjusted automatically  Bids never exceed 30%  Predicted conversion calculated  You still manage max CPC bids first, then ad rank determined by combining CPA bid, quality score,  Objective: receive more and the predicted conversion rate conversions and reduce cost-per- conversion  Objective: Improve conversions and increase ROI Recommend testing each and evaluate results © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 54. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesAd Extensions  These are extra clickable options that can coincide with your text ads  They usually appear with ads in top 1/2 positions of search results with good quality scores © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 55. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesSitelink Strategy  Sitelinks scans your website and gives you options to add as a site link.  You can also create new extensions if the links are on microsites or not shown  A click on a link will still charge your account  As shown in example, link to pages that offer lead gen opportunity or validation links like case studies or testimonials © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 56. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesCall Link Strategy  Show a business number on ads that appear on mobile phones; click-to- call feature  Put a Google 800 number in your ad, that forwards to a business number. Ideal if your call-to-action is a phone number. Text ad should reflect action- “call for directions” or “call sales now” Google calls this Call Metrics and can be analyzed along with click data. This ad has call metrics and site links! © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 57. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesSocial Extensions with Google+ Page  If you have a Google+ business page, you can link it to Adwords.  All the +1s you get from websites, ads, and search results will now be tallied and shown within the text ads  When users +1 your digital properties and listings, your click rates will likely increase © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 58. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesQUALITY SCORE STRATEGY © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 59. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesWhat Is Quality Score  Quality Score is a dynamic variable assigned to each keyword. By analyzing a variety of factors, the score measures how relevant your keyword is to your ad group, ad text and to a user’s query.  Google’s mission is to ensure user experience, and that means targeting ads that closely responds to the user’s query, offering high click through rates, and clicking to high quality landing pages that support the ad and query.  Quality Score is ranked 1-10. Ranks over 7 are considered excellent. Scores under 4 are considered poor. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 60. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesQuality Score Factors  Historical CTR of keyword  Historical account performance  Keyword relevance to ad text  Keyword and ad relevance to the search query  Relevance of ad text  Landing page quality © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 61. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesWhy Pay Attention to Quality Score  The ad rank formula: CPC bid x Quality Score  Low quality score will preclude ads from appearing in a keyword auction  The lower the quality score, the higher your CPC bid will need to be to achieve a good ad rank  The higher the quality score, the lower your CPC bid will be to reach an advantageous ad rank © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 62. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesWhat This Means  If your goal is to be in the top 3 ad positions, and your quality score is low, your bid will need to be high to achieve the desired ad rank. Your CTR will be high because of ad position, but the CPC will also be high, and thus you’ll receive less overall clicks for your budget  If your quality score is high, your bid won’t need to be as high to achieve top 3 ad positions. CTR will be high, and because of lower CPC, you’ll receive more clicks for your budget © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 63. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesImproved Quality Score Impact on ROI  Scenario  CTR increases because ads are more relevant and ad rank is better  CPC is lower because we performed tactics to increase quality score  Now look at the ROI increase © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 64. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesStrategies to Improve Quality Score  Keyword  Ads  Increase impressions to build history,  Ensure keywords are referenced in ad so that quality score becomes more headlines and ad text accurate  Consider DKI- Dynamic keyword  Boost CTR- add negative keywords, insertion, which puts user queries update match options to phrase and within ad headlines or within ads. Need exact, match keywords to specific ads, to be careful overdoing this. make phrases two words or less to over 3 (long-tail), pause irrelevant terms  Landing Pages  Good content with keywords that solve  Ad Groups user’s query needs  Restructure so ad groups are tightly  Look/feel and usability that increase themed user experience  Ensure ad groups, ads, and keywords  No pop-ups; optimize loading speed are very aligned and relevant to a user’s query © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 65. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesKEYWORD STRATEGY © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 66. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesSet the Stage  Think about keywords within the buying funnel (shown earlier)  Don’t start with what you do; start with what your prospects need  Consider competitive research; gather intelligence © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 67. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesBuying Funnel  Advertising, Display, Social Media, Internal Needs Create Demand  Search terms, as presented earlier, should target audiences throughout their purchase lifecycle  The consideration or shopping phase is the most critical to present your case as a solution provider © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 68. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesThink Like Your Customers  Review your buyer personas  What are their needs and pain points?  What are their solution options?  What content do they need to make decisions? © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 69. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesThe Long-Tail vs. The Short Query Long-Tail Short Query  3 more terms in your  One or two-word phrases keyword phrase  High traffic; but less  Less Competitive relevant; quality score effect (low CTR)  Specific terms easier to match with relevant ads  Need ample supply of and ad groups negative keywords  Less Traffic  Harder to write ads Unless competitive issues call for it, long-tail keywords are always favored for PPC campaign success © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 70. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesThose Match Types  Broad Match  Phrase Match  Build awareness and  More exact matches generate immediate clicks  Can still learn keyword  Learn what people are variations searching for, then optimize later  Exact Match  Expect high impressions, low CTR, and high bid prices  Your keyword matches query exactly with no other words  Broad includes synonyms in query and tense variations  Less traffic; but most  Bid less as a start vs. other targeted; expect higher CTR match types © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 71. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesModified Broad Match Examples What It Is  Keyword: +accounting software Ad will show for user query: Need accounting software programs  Stops Google from Accounting tools for dental offices changing broad match Ad won’t show for user query: Financial software reviews keywords to synonyms or  Keyword: accounting software related terms Ad will show for user query: Financial software programs  Add a “+” to the broad Accounting programs for dental offices match term to keep that  Keyword: +accounting +software word in the query Ad will show for user query: Need accounting software programs Ad won’t show for user query: Financial programs for dental offices © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 72. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesLong-Tail Research Tools We use tools such as these to populate our long-tail keywords, and output the list in any order, as well as match options. Note the words in column 3 that cover the buying funnel stages as well as user intent © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 73. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesJust a Reminder  Your ad groups must be aligned with the keyword groups by category. For the example we just did, these would be ad groups:  Financial software solutions/tools  Financial software firms/companies  Accounting software solutions/firms  Accounting software discount/cheap Alert: Many consultants have their own methods of ad group structure; just remember; the more relevant, the better quality score and CTR, and thus more efficient conversions © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 74. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesNegative Keywords: Include in your Campaigns orAd Groups What It Is Examples  Negative keywords stop ads  Keyword query: Certified from showing when certain Salesforce Consultants keywords are in user queries  Negative keywords in account:  Eliminates unwanted traffic, software, jobs, careers, trainers, which in turn increases Sugar, Microsoft, platforms, relevancy, CTR, and quality cheap, discount, comparisons score  Ads won’t show if the  Conversion rates will increase above terms are in user as well, and cost per conversion query will decrease © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 75. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesExample of a Negative Keyword Needed Widener University may have a fine accounting program, but they need the term software as a negative…thus their campaign not optimized © 2010 Mike Moran

  • 87. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesBIDDING STRATEGY © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 88. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesBidding Considerations for Lead Generation  Bids can be adjusted on a keyword level or ad group level; both can work. Bidding on keywords takes more time but can be more profitable in the long run.  Two of your key metrics are conversion rates and cost-per-conversion. Bidding management should be to optimize those metrics. Utilize the Google Conversion Optimizer to maximize conversions (explained earlier)  Quality Score optimization. As presented previously, the higher your score, the more effective your campaign will be. For optimal ad rank, you’ll be able to bid lower when a keyword has a high score  Consider match options with bids. Broad matches are more competitive and will cost more; plus quality score will be adversely affected. Watch closely this scenario  Competition and ad rank. How important is it to be in the top 3? Granted those positions get the highest CTR and help quality score, but will those efforts be profitable vs. side and bottom of page ad positions? Best to test tactics and bid accordingly.  Test the multitude of bidding options as described earlier in Settings and in upcoming slides. © 2010 Mike Moran
  • 89. Paul Mosenson, President, NuSpark Marketing Lead Generation ServicesDetermining Maximum Bid  Maximum CPC is the highest you’re willing to pay for a click; your actual CPCs will be lower most of the time. Ad position is based on the combination of maximum bid and quality score. Two recommendations to determine the initial bid:  1. Start small; perhaps even $1.00, then start adjusting up and down on an ongoing basis. Consider competition, CTR, conversion rates.  2. Utilize a business formula (see next slide) © 2010 Mike Moran

Example: $2,000 per conversion  Estimate monthly ad impressions based on history or keywords: Example: 50,000 impressions  Estimate click through rate based on history: Example: 2% CTR  Use pipeline conversion metrics in order to determine a sale-to click conversion rate.

Keep in mind, conversion tracking is not perfect- consider:  Prospect deletes cookies in between click and conversion  Prospect signs up for a 30-day trial, what if he purchases after 30 days?  What if the prospect clicks on one PC, and converts from a tablet? Google Adwords tracks conversions based on 1st touch. That means my initial query gets credit for a conversion, if that conversion occurs within 30 days. If I did two searches via the funnel approach as described earlier, my conversion is still based on the first click.  The story is different with Google Analytics.. © 2010 Mike Moran
