Pay It Forward

Use Customer Referral Value to Evaluate Social Media's Role in the Marketing Mix

Social Media is a lot like the old media, for example TV, in one very important way. It's almost impossible to measure its value using ROI - return on investment.

Just in case you were wondering, most TV advertisements don't have an attractive ROI.

So, why does anyone invest in TV advertising - by extension - why should anyone invest marketing dollars into social media?

Well, when it comes to TV, you'll find that even though TV ads don't earn a great return, sales will fall when the ads...

What does Conversion Optimization mean to a consumer brand sold at retail?


I started my marketing career managing cookie and cracker brands for Nabisco. These days, I spend a lot of time speaking to senior marketers who are trying to make sense of the changing landscape in marketing.

Conversion Optimization has a very clear connection to anyone who sells or generates leads online. But that's leaving out a lot of big brands or consumer goods companies who don't sell directly to consumers.

We don't sell our products...

Conversion Optimization makes real sense

Want to improve the productivity and efficiency of every marketing dollar?

Invest in Conversion Optimization.

Conversion Optimization is the science of converting MORE of your site visitors to customers.

It requires a mastery of many different domains, but usually requires applying an understanding of digital marketing, web analytics, search engine optimization, search advertising and user experience design . . . to conceive, test, and implement marketing and site changes to improve conversion rate (the rate at which your site converts visitors to buyers).

You can think of it as something of a relative of SEO - Search Engine Optimization. However, its connection to the bottom line is more direct.

So, why is Conversion Optimization interesting to marketers? While marketing has always been entrusted to “fill the pipeline,” it hasn’t always been held responsible for making the pipeline more efficient. For today’s marketer, who is probably being held to a higher standard (as in - generate revenue and profits), you need to go a lot further than generating more visitor traffic.

Conversion Optimization is the way that you generate more from the traffic you already generate.

Improve across all business layers

Conversion optimization isn’t really about...
