Description
In this 5-minute, online class, you’ll learn how to test and track your marketing, so that you can get the best return on investment for the time and money you spend. You’ll find out how to test marketing in small increments (so that you risk less), and you’ll be given examples of different sample sizes that will allow you to see patterns of success. You’ll discover how to track everything from clicks to calls to action, leads to bids, initial orders to “lifetime values” of customers and clients. By tracking your marketing, all the way through an “interest funnel,” you’ll be able to nimbly make adjustments to your marketing strategies and plan. You’ll see a specific example of how a $1,000 investment in marketing could turn into $12,500 worth of business.
