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 from a client.
They were spending £100/day on Facebook Ads sending people to a webinar.
Here are the all-important numbers for the last 7 days:
• 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
…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 only got £500 back.
BUT… this service has a minimum 3-month
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 eh!
So although the initial campaign didn’t look very impressive – once we stopped and got the calculator out – it was a huge success!
It just goes to show… when in doubt – get your calculator out!!
