“We Can’t Measure” Really Means:
 • We don’t know what to measure
 • We don’t have access to the data
 • We don’t know how to tie the data together
 • We don’t have the time to measure
 • We don’t know what the data means

@jaybaer




Are You a Publisher?




                       #cmworld
@jaybaer


Knowing a Piece of Content Generated
3,000 Page Views Should Prompt These
Questions:
 • Do people consuming that content engage in
   other, more desirable behaviors on the site?
 • Do they do so at a ratio different from site
   visitors overall?
 • Do people consuming that content return to
   the site?
 • Do they do so at a ratio different from site
   visitors overall?
                                              #cmworld
@jaybaer


To Boost Consumption,
Free Your Content
 • “Forms are the enemy of spread” – Joe
   Chernov, Eloqua
 • “Of all the places your content could reside,
   your site has the least amount of traffic.” – Me

  Question answered: “How often do
  content consumptions turn into leads?”

  Goals addressed:




                                           #cmworld
@jaybaer


Field Guide to Lead Gen Metrics
  • Gated content that produces leads itself
    •   CRM system (Eloqua, Hubspot, Marketo, Infusionsoft)
    •   Tracking URLs
  • Email subscriptions and similar
    •   Email provider, or CRM system
  • Blog subscriptions and similar
    •   Feedblitz, or CRM system

                                                      #cmworld
@jaybaer


Indirect Lead Generation
  • Not all content is lead producing directly
  • But, all content can contribute to lead generation
    behavior
  • Set up goals in Google Analytics or similar
    •   For key behaviors that are not revenue-producing
        per se (email signup) assign a dollar value
    •   Set custom reports to show goals for each content
        piece
    •   Also look at new Page Value data



                                                       #cmworld
@jaybaer


Tying Social to Content
  • Some Social Platforms (Argyle Social, Expion,
    Hubspot) can tie social media posts to content
    landing pages, and track through to lead
    generation value.
  • Systems that can do this MUST have their own
    URL shortener.




                                               #cmworld

Don’t Forget Customer Retention




                                  #cmworld
@jaybaer




Your Most Important Content Audience
     are Your Current Customers




                                 #cmworld
@jaybaer


Content ROI is Calculated at the
Component Level First
Investment
   40 hours/month to produce blog
   X hourly rate per each blog
   participant ($40)
   X overhead factor (50%)
   + amortized design fees ($1k/month)
   + monthly hosting fees ($100/month)
   + miscellaneous ($100/month)

   = true monthly blogging costs
   $3,600

                                         #cmworld
@jaybaer


Content ROI is Calculated at the
Component Level First
Return
   25 leads per month
   X lead conversion rate (20%)
   X average lifetime customer value
   ($3,000)
   X average profit margin (30%)

   = true monthly blogging return
   $4,500



                                       #cmworld
@jaybaer


ROI = Return Minus Investment,
Divided by Investment

  $4,500 - $3,600 = 900

  Divided by 3,600 = .25

  ROI is 25%




                                 #cmworld
@jaybaer


Sometimes You Can’t Close the Loop




                                 #cmworld
@jaybaer


Correlation Approach
 • Track EVERYTHING
   •   Over a long period of time
 • Note whenever ANYTHING changes
   •   PR coverage, website change, new radio campaign
 • Also track multiple revenue data points
   •   Total leads
   •   Average purchase
   •   Churn
   •   Total revenue
 • Look for patterns that indicate content is working
                                                   #cmworld
@jaybaer




Your Job is to Prove Something Wrong,
      not Prove Something Right




                                 #cmworld
@jaybaer




The Goal Isn’t to be Good at Content.




The Goal is to be Good at Business,
       Because of Content.
