Investments, if done strategically, with purpose and intention, can yield some pretty attractive returns. Of course, your internet marketing ROI (Return on Investment) is no different…
Traditional marketing techniques are beginning to feel a bit more like fool’s gold these days. Promising big returns, there’s often little one can do to gauge its effectiveness, let alone see an attractive ROI. However, we have now what’s been termed “inbound marketing” and in stark contrast, comes with the ability to analyze, track and really guage its effect and, like real gold, comes with a virtually guaranteed ROI.
“The beauty lies in the science behind the scenes~and analytics play a huge role by gauging your efforts.”
On the Internet, everything leaves a trail and therefore, is trackable. And while that still seems a little creepy, it’s actually great news! Now, we CAN study the effects of our efforts and as a result, make the necessary adjustments that will yield the results we strive for.
There are a variety of platforms out there to use like Google Analytics, but certainly, don’t stop there. Their functions vary greatly, so it’s important to do your research. The top ranking, according to a fellow blogger, is a good place to start. Then, research some more and go with what feels right for you. Hubspot offers the most comprehensive platform that (for a fee) is second to none~providing all the analytical tools you’ll need to ensure your inbound marketing success.
Whatever your choice, though, they are your new best friend(s). They will be brutally honest with you, telling you, “do this, go here, try this, and this ain’t working.” But by continually self correcting as a result, you will absolutely get to your destination!
