It’s all down to your goals. Are you looking for general brand awareness, visits to your website, downloads of a document or completions of a web form? Depending on what you’re looking to achieve you’ll need to monitor different performance indicators.
As a ‘first indicator’, most of our clients will monitor web traffic via Google Analytics or similar. Volume of traffic is of course important, however engagement once on your website (session duration, bounce rate, pages per session) will also indicate whether visitors are of the right type and finding information that interests them.
If you have goals and conversions set up in your analytics system (i.e. the user visits a certain page, downloads a document, clicks an email address or completes a form), the conversion rate will provide a very clear picture of whether your ads are attracting genuine business interest.
Your ads can (and should) have unique tracking URLs including campaign information, so that monitoring performance is as simple as possible.
If you need help with tracking urls or analytics please get in touch – we have a significant amount of experience and are always happy to help.
