😏 You may think this sounds obvious but at its heart, marketing is all just maths.
The success (or failure!) of a campaign is all down to the numbers.
Here’s an example.
We know of a business who spent £100/day for 7 days on Facebook Ads sending people to a webinar.
Here are the all-important numbers: 🧮
They spent £700
• Had 122 people register for the webinar
• Had 24 of those people show up
• 5 of them purchased a £99/month service.
😭Now the client was pretty upset with these results when they first saw them.
Only 24 people showing up for the webinar was quite disheartening... ...and only 5 x £99 for £700 didn’t look great either.
But when in doubt… get the calculator out!
Let’s do the maths:
They spent £700 and had 122 people register for the webinar.
All good so far. 👍
Only 24 turned up for the webinar - there’s definitely room for improvement there (!).
And of those 24, ﬁve purchased.
Well, hold on a second - that’s a 20% conversion rate. 20% of people who saw the offer - BOUGHT.
👀 The problem wasn’t that the offer was bad or that the pitch didn’t work – it was that not enough people had a chance to see the offer.
But then let’s look at the sales.
5 x £99/month – they spent £700, and, in round numbers, only got £500 back.
BUT… this service has a minimum 3-month commitment.
So, the WORST case scenario is 3 x £99 for each of the five sales…
Which is £1,485! 😲
They spent £700 and DOUBLED it in less than three months. 🙌
Not a bad return I think you’ll agree!
So, although the initial campaign didn’t look very impressive – once we stopped and got the calculator out – it was huge success!
