In today’s multi-channel world, people are searching online, visiting stores to test out the products, returning to the Internet to compare prices and then completing the purchases either online, in the store or over the phone.
With so much competition on the web, it can be a race to the top of the search engine lists page. Search engine optimization is important for businesses to rank organically over time, but what if you’re looking for immediate results? Generating a substantial amount of traffic through a search engine marketing (SEM), sometimes referred to as cost-per-click or pay-per-click, campaign may costs thousands of dollars in order to increase sales and in the end it may be clear as to how many thousands of potential consumers saw and clicked on the ad, but unclear as to how many of those potential customers followed through and converted offline via a phone call. Marketers must be prepared to measure the offline conversions in order to justify the spending. When marketers simply measure clicks alone, they don’t have a complete picture of the conversion value.
By utilizing SEM as well as a source or keyword level call tracking service, businesses will be able to efficiently drive online traffic and effectively measure the campaign that drove the call along with the sale that happened as a result.
Our new white paper, Your Guide to Driving Online Traffic and Measuring Offline Phone Conversions, was written in collaboration with Elite SEM, a New York based digital marketing agency. In this whitepaper we review how to leverage online advertising to its fullest by generating quality SEM and measuring offline phone conversion with the latest advances in phone call tracking.
