Pay Per Click Campaign Set Up
Assess the business case for using Pay Per Click as an advertising vehicle for your site:
What is the main goal of your site?
What audience does your site target? Does this audience have different segments? If so, please define each segment.
What do you hope accomplish with Pay Per Click? Are you looking for direct sales, lead generation, time on site or membership/registration? How will you define a conversion based on these goals?
What is the monetary value of each conversion to your site? What do you expect your average visitor to lead/sale/registration % to be? Do you have historical data from other marketing channels or industry benchmarking data to support this?
Based on the value of your lead and the estimated conversion percentage calculate the expected cost per conversion that you hope to achieve, the number of conversions that you wish to achieve per month and the amount of traffic that you will need to reach this goal. (See spreadsheet for this step and all others below.)
