Implementation of the Week

  • Complete PPC Tracking Dashboard via CRM // Analytics
    • Pay per click (PPC) advertising can be a valuable tool for increasing your Lead flow and reach
    • However, it is extremely important to properly track the return on ad spend for these Leads, to ensure that you are actually making money on the effort
    • Because PPC data is oftentimes primarily stored on the advertising platform (Facebook, Google) it can be tricky to attribute your revenue back to the original source
    • In this implementation, we pulled Facebook and Google data directly into Zoho Analytics
    • Then, UTM parameter tracking was enabled for all forms on the clients website to capture the PPC source information into the CRM
    • Next, SQL tables were created to coalesce Facebook and Google PPC data with the resultant Leads
    • Lastly, a dashboard was created to house multiple reports/charts visualizing the spend data against the inbound Leads generated, and revenue closed
