Optimizing Awareness and Traffic ROI
Creating a great customer experience is half the battle – but if nobody knows about it, it’s simply a waste of time and budget. Getting the word out and driving traffic to your store, your call center and/or website requires brilliant creative, insightful targeting and a clever landing page persuasion process. Raising awareness has changed from making noise to perfecting the art of conversation in the marketplace. Search savvy, social media savoir-faire and integrated multi-channel magic are today’s imperatives. There is no way to guarantee a promotion will go viral, but the right metrics can tell you when things are working or when they need some serious attention.

Optimizing Awareness and Traffic ROI
B2B lead generation is an art and a science. Engaging ads, flowing social media conversations, and buzz worthy industry events all generate awareness and drive traffic to the site. That’s the art. Then comes the science. John discusses how to segment leads by acquisition type and target accordingly, and how to prepare before the campaign launches to measure, analyze and optimize. John will show how to establish a reporting framework – keeping internal and external audiences in mind – and how to decide on relevant nomenclature, create insightful dashboards, establish an analytics process and follow it. John reviews the analysis of quantitative and qualitative data, engagement, asset interaction, micro-conversions, anecdotal sales insight, events, etc. Learn how LSI measures the effectiveness of traffic generation with the convergence of marketing automation system metrics, web analytics and social engagement data.

Woody describes several cases where the politics were thick, the calculations breathtaking and the results applauded.
