You’ve unleashed a DRTV lead generation campaign. The call centers and landing pages are ready. Reps are hunkered down for a major traffic flow. But how will you really know if you hit the mark?
First, let’s backtrack. The first thing lead-seeking brands must do is accept a few new realities. The biggest of these is the ‘discovery’ factor now ruling the online marketplace. In a nutshell, onliners generally insist on discovering brands for themselves. Hence, all those frenzied online searches. Trust is critical here. For lead-generation DRTV, this means developing content that first inspires trust in your brand. Only then will audiences take the next step.
Once a lead-generation campaign is underway, it’s not enough to look at website traffic. Brands must apply key metrics to gauge the true impact of their efforts. Among these critical metrics are:
- Click-Thru Rates (CTR) – Number of times targeted consumers clicked specific online links.
- Conversion Rates – Number of times targeted consumers performed a desired action.
- Time to Customer Conversion – Indicates which lead-generation campaigns delivered the quickest results.
- Cost Per Customer – Excessive costs will gobble up profits.
