Pay-Per-Click and Marketing Automation Event with Lead Liaison and Mad Fish Digital

Allen, TX – The numbers are in for the Pay-Per-Click + Marketing Automation webinar, hosted last week by Lead Liaison and Mad Fish Digital. Lead Liaison saw an increase in registration and attendance of more than 300 percent against prior events. This increase in interest is likely due to the quality of both hosts’ history of webinars, as well as the topic discussed.

Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising and its relationship with marketing automation are both topics that the majority of businesses are eager to learn more about. Oftentimes the two topics are thought of as separate solutions, but are more effective when used together. Hosts Ben Herman from Mad Fish Digital, and Chris Kipgen from Lead Liaison, unpacked the information in a way that was both insightful and actionable.

Seventy-three percent of the webinar attendees said that they currently use paid advertising for their marketing efforts, but only 22 percent of attendees were tracking those efforts using marketing automation. The presenters used this information to tailor the presentation to fit the needs of the audience. It was clear that most attendees needed to better understand the relationship between the two strategies, which is what the hosts focused on.

“I had a great time with Chris talking about digital paid advertising and marketing automation,” says Herman. “The audience had some great questions, and I was glad that we could shed some light on how Mad Fish Digital strategies and the Lead Liaison platform work hand in hand.”

Mad Fish Digital, a digital marketing agency based in Portland, OR, discussed how to harness paid search, and how to keep a handle on the levers a company can control as it relates to PPC. Herman explained the difference between micro and macro conversions, and how to organize the data “after the click.”

Lead Liaison, a sales and marketing solutions provider based in Dallas, TX, went even further to map out the relationship with PPC and their legion of sales and marketing solutions. Kipgen demonstrated how to nurture leads that are a result of an ad click, as well as how to calculate and track AdWords ROI and costs per Prospect.

“I was really pleased at the level of engagement during this webinar,” says Kipgen. “I could tell that our audience was very interested in what we were talking about, and I think that it really inspired folks to get out there and accomplish their sales and marketing goals.”

Buzzwords in Marketing Automation: PPC (Pay-Per-Click)

pay-per-clickPPC (Pay-Per-Click): its meaning and how it relates to marketing automation. A part of the series Buzzwords in Marketing Automation.

Are you ready to build a marketing beast with PPC ads and marketing automation? If you think that pay-per-click (PPC) ads and marketing automation are two separate animals, you aren’t alone. Many marketers run their PPC ads and marketing automation campaigns separately, which is why they get subpar results. If you combine the two, you can create a marketing beast that not only lets you deliver qualified leads to your sales team but also allows you to maximize your ROI.

First, let’s take a closer look at PPC ads, and then, let’s go over how you can add marketing automation into the mix.

An Overview of PPC Marketing

PPC ads are ads that you pay for every time someone clicks on them. While several companies offer PPC ad opportunities, AdWords is the most popular. If you use this platform, you create an ad and then place it on the Google Search or Display Network. The ad is triggered when someone types in a keyword or visits a site that that you’re targeting. Then, if the person clicks on your ad, he or she goes to your website.

AdWords and other PPC networks have some tracking methods, but they are pretty weak. Because of that, it’s easy to get in over your head with PPC ads.

At least it was before marketing automation came to the rescue.

Marketing Automation – The Key to Running a Successful PPC Campaign

Marketing automation can do everything that AdWords and other PPC networks can’t. It can track your visitor from the moment he or she reaches your website. Then, the automation software creates a digital profile of each lead that visits your site. This allows the software to know what to do with each visitor. For example, one visitor might be ready to receive a call from a sales representative while another person might be ready to get an email about an exciting new product that you have.

This also provides a way for you to track your ROI for in a campaign. You can find out, without fail, how much your campaign is really costing you. You can also find out what your visitors expect when why come to your site after clicking on an ad.

If you’re using a PPC network on its own, you’re missing out. Don’t make the mistake of going solo. Pair your PPC campaign with marketing automation software so you can get the most out of PPC ads.
