  12. 12. Segmentation – Engaged Visitors<br />Engagement = many pages viewed, long time on site<br />Non-engaged visitors probably will NOT become eventual customers<br />Engaged visitors who happen to not convert could be in an earlier stage of the conversion funnel / sales cycle<br />SEM Tip Use Adword’s “Search Funnels” reporting for deeper analysis of your conversion funnel.<br />
  13. 13. Segmentation – Engaged Visitors<br />Lower than Avg.<br />Ecommerce Rate<br />Higher than Avg.<br />User Engagement<br />
  14. 14. Segmentation – Engaged Visitors<br />Engaged visitors exhibit a likelihood of returning as branded or direct traffic.<br />
  15. 15. Branded Keywords vs. Non-Branded<br />TIP<br />Add utm_nooverride=1 to destination URLs to track back the branded click to the original source.<br />Example:<br /><br />

  17. 17. Branded Keywords vs. Non-Branded<br />
  18. 18. ORIGINAL<br />Variation<br />
  19. 19. Segmentation – GWO Example<br />Site wide – No clear winner. Higher Conversion Rate, but lower per visit value. Numbers were close.<br />After segmentation, we reveal a >25% improvement in conversion rate and per visit value.<br />(Customer service was making purchases from Israel)<br />
  20. 20. Review + Takeaways<br />Choose goals wisely – consider conversion process. Use horizontal funnels.<br />Properly configure goals / look for tracking issues (example: self-referrals)<br />Branded & Direct Traffic - likelihood of being in a later stage of the conversion process / sales cycle.<br />Non-engaged visitors likely won’t make an impact down the line. Engaged visitors could return as branded or direct traffic.<br />Segment, Segment, Segment! -> By Source/Medium, Geo-Location, Engagement, Keywords, Custom Variables, etc.<br />
