  5. 5.

And when? </li></ul><ul><li>We want you to focus on marketing “ABC” product </li></ul><ul><li>Can you get us on top of the Search Engines for this keyword… </li></ul>
  6. 6. Step 1 (con’t.) … Need vs. Demand The difference between “action” and “revenue” <ul><li>A DEMAND is an EXTERNAL request from customers that has opportunity to generate REVENUE </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. Traditional advertising sent 2 leads/mo. & 4 customers in 12 mo. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. Online traffic conversion < 1% </li></ul><ul><li>Search for “XYZ” product up 386% in past 3 months (needed ABC) </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in Hyper-local SEO up +7,000 % in over five years!!! </li></ul>

Past Performance (90 min) </li></ul><ul><li>Measure both Traditional & Online </li></ul><ul><li>Measure Revenue vs. Conversions </li></ul><ul><li>If you paid for it - measure your results against it (1, 3, 6,12) </li></ul>
  9. 9. Step 4… Create Profitable Milestones Answering the “WHEN” question <ul><li>“ So exactly WHEN do you think we’ll start seeing results?” </li></ul><ul><li>Program Milestones should be based on potential of generating revenue (X leads from ABC) </li></ul><ul><li>Internal Milestones should be solely based on recognized revenue ($X from ABC source) </li></ul><ul><li>Timeframe varies per market and per demand. Average milestones should be reached 3-6 months live </li></ul>
  10. 10. Step 5… Establish Tracking Metrics Answering the “WHAT” question <ul><li>“ WHAT do we need to track to start generating a profit center?” </li></ul><ul><li>Never mistake action for revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Online Metrics DO NOT produce any type of revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Only metrics that matters are those that DRIVE REVENUE = LEADS </li></ul><ul><li>Tracking metrics should only come from tracking actual HARD LEADS (calls, emails, forms, referrals) </li></ul>
  11. 11. Step 6… Track Consumer Intelligence Answering the “WHO” question <ul><li>WHO is your most profitable customer? Do you know??? </li></ul><ul><li>> 80% of your competitors don’t </li></ul><ul><li>It’s not who your customers are now </li></ul><ul><li>To know you need to track </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Who converted in last 30-90 days? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Where did they come from? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What were their demands/similarities? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How much you paid for them? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Leveraging Consumer Intelligence can get results faster and get you more customers for less ! </li></ul>
