Looking for a full ROI-based strategy tailored especially to your business model? We can help.
A well-defined ROI strategy helps define (or redefine) your cost per acquisition (CPA) target. A sophisticated ROI model should incorporate an understanding of ROPO (Research Online Purchase Offline) consumer behaviours and LTV (life-time value, or repeat purchase within a defined period).
Let’s take a step back. So what’s ROI? Return is your revenue minus your cost divided by your investment. Revenue should include online and offline transactions as well as repeat transactions. Your costs include your media costs, your agency or consultant costs and your internal resources.
But are you measuring the right metrics as part of your ROI strategy? Your individual business model will help define your online ROI. Are you purely online? Do you have an offline presence? Do you have a call centre? Depending on the stage of the buying cycle, your success metrics will vary.
We also look at your consumer’s behaviour. Is their online search triggered by another channel you have invested heavily in such as TV or print media? Or perhaps they have found you online but then purchased offline. Online CPA could be significantly lower when considering consumer behaviour around researching online, purchasing offline.
So how does it affect your ROI for online marketing? Let’s look again at the ROI model from above but make some assumptions based on these consumer behaviours.
Any ROI model that does not consider Research Online, Purchase Offline behaviour is not beneficial.
