Measuring Online Marketing: 7 Stats to Determine if You Spent Wisely (with examples)


Jump to: Enroll below

If you are doing social media marketing or online marketing for any type of business at all, whether it’s a business that you do on the side because you enjoy and want to make a little extra money, you’re a full-time entrepreneur, or your job is doing marketing, being able to determine if the places where you have invested time or money is important.

If marketing isn’t resulting in paying clients, it’s could be a waste of time and money.  But understanding which things to track and measure, and whether those numbers are good, can be confusing.  

Measuring online marketing can be as simple as a few steps that will give you a quick overview of the effectiveness of your marketing campaign.  

In this class, you will learn:

  • What you should be measuring for your online marketing efforts, especially paid advertising (such as pay-per-click)
  • How to know if those numbers show that your strategy is working
  • Organic vs paid reach
  • Why impressions are important
  • Prospective clients (leads) and potential income potential
  • Look at specific examples of what I track using results for three of my clients
  • Calculating return on investment (ROI) and determine if yours is good

You will create:

  • A spreadsheet to help you track these numbers, view the history of the impact of your efforts, and calculate return on investment.

This training is right for you if:

  • You already do online marketing, especially for paid advertising
  • You want an easy way to understand if your efforts are resulting in sales

    Purchased this but am unable to access? Thanks!

    1. Sorry, I just now saw this message. It looks like the system glitched and did not process your payment, but I’ve gone ahead and added you to this course manually since Paypal glitched, so you should see it in your list. Let me know if you need any other help!
