What KPIs should I keep for my performance marketing campaign?

Every business is unique and is at a different stage in their life cycle, which means that each of them will have different marketing objectives and different KPIs. Here are some that you should consider.

1. Unique Monthly Visitors: finding out how many people visited your website is vital for almost all businesses that do at least some part of their business digitally. you can get more specific data by drilling own to find traffic sources and which pages within your website have seen the most visits

2. Cost Per Lead: The number of leads generated by each ad campaign divided by the cost of each campaign can get you this number and it is vital to measure this to understand the effectiveness of lead generation campaigns.

3. Cost Per Acquisition: If the customers you acquired are attributable to your campaigns, you can measure your total digital marketing spend by the total acquired customers.

4. Branded Search Lift: As more people search for your brand over time, it is useful to measure the general trend of this metric. The effectiveness of your branding and marketing campaigns can lead to increases in this KPI (though this may be a lagging metric).

5. Average Position On Search: The positioning of your website in search results can make a significant difference on how much traffic your website receives. This metric measures your search result page ranking for your targeted keywords. Google Analytics can calculate this number for organic search. The higher your ranking, the more clicks, revenue, and ROI to your website, which translate into higher revenue and ROI.

How do I know if my ROI is good?
There are two ways to go about checking whether your ROI has been good. One method is to benchmark against other businesses within your industry or against the industry average Aside from that, you can also look back on your company’s historical data and benchmark against it to understand your current performance and measure future performance. However, pay attention to whether some KPIs are still relevant and whether some dips or upticks in performance are the result of some extraneous efforts.
What role does my CRM have on my performance marketing campaigns?
CRM is the foundation of a good performance marketing strategy. A strong CRM systeme lets you collect, store and organise data about your customers and their preferences securely, which you can then use to personalise your marketing campaigns. A good CRM system will also ensure that your marketing qualified lead does not fall off the radar when passed on to the sales team and it enables more precise attribution for each sale made as well.
What role does my website analytics play in my performance marketing campaign?
Since website analytics is one of the key places where you can get the precise data you need, it’s vital to corroborate your campaign performance with your website data. For instance when running a search ad, your website data will not only help you understand how many people came to your website from the ad, it will also tell you how they behaved on your website — how long did they stay on the landing page, which page did they move to afterwards, when did they leave the website, and so on.
