Every business is a constant balance between investment and returns. Tracking the ROI from time to time is thus an essential part of every business. Besides, every business owner wants to know how much returns his business is earning. Here’s everything you need to know if you’re using Google Adwords Conversion Report Data to make your business decisions. Hang in tight there!
First things first. You’re doing it all wrong if you’re using Google Adwords Report data to make your business decisions. It will not only affect your Adwords strategy but your business strategy on the whole. Ask me how? Majority of the conversion tracking analytics count the conversions based on the number of form submissions and every submission cannot be considered as a plausible lead as there may be a lot of unqualified leads, promotional leads, marketing leads, duplicate leads or bad data.
The real leads of your business lies only in the target audience, which could be your prospective customers. So, the question is how fair and right is it to base your important business decisions on these analytics that could lead to false sales funnel? Don’t worry though, there’s a way out and this blog is all about that. Read on!
Let’s define the role of marketing in any business very clearly here. The role of marketing team is to bring in more quality leads, which we refer to as MQLs (Marketing Qualified Leads). These leads are then converted into SQLs (Sales Qualified Leads) by the Sales team. The performance of Adwords can be best tracked by considering the number of MQLs generated by a particular Adwords campaign. This helps provide a clear picture of actual impact on your sales pipeline through Adwords investment. To be able to paint this picture clearly, it’s very important that your sales and marketing data are synced.
Here’s why sales and marketing data need to be synced
If you are a Pardot user (A marketing automation platform), you can easily sync your marketing and sales data at one place. Google Analytics and Adwords allows you sync your sales and marketing data helping you get much better insights. With this step, the whole process of tracking conversions is taken to a whole new level and you’ll get deeper-funnel metrics including quality leads, behaviors, events, opportunities, metrics and other dimensions related to your prospective customers. This clearly helps in analysing which ads, campaigns and keywords are working great for you and which ones aren’t!
Amazing business benefits you can reap when you link your Pardot, Analytics and Adwords together
When Adwords start generating leads for you, you need to know who’s genuinely interested in your products or solutions and who’s just looking around. Now, when you sync this information with your adwords, you’ll get an idea about what ads and keywords are generating quality leads for your business.
Track the behavior of your leads
By linking your Pardot, Analytics and Adwords together, all the information about leads, contacts, opportunities, accounts to Google Analytics are synced together which helps you understand how much revenue is generated by a particular ad, keyword, campaign, event, metric or a dimension tied with customers. This data reveals which ads are generating plausible opportunities and which ones simply aren’t. What’s the result? You can effectively tailor your campaigns according to the needs of your customers.
