Track Paying Subscribers Back to Keywords and Campaigns
If you run a SaaS company, or a subscription site, you'll know that it's nearly impossible to track your paid subscribers back to the referring keyword or ad campaign. With standard Google Analytics tracking you can only track the sign up -- the form submit that starts your customers into their free trial.
Google Analytics is incapable of identifying when your free trial customer converts to a paying subscriber at the end of their 30 day free trial. While you can use the Google Adwords Offline Converison Tracking tool to import your paid subscriber data into Adwords this data will not be pulled into Analytics. This makes it impossible to identify the referring keyword / campaigns and view your "free-to-paid" conversion funnel in Google Analytics for customers that complete their free trial and upgrade to paying subscribers.
You can’t pay your staff with Facebook Likes
We believe that marketing has to be accountable and tied back to revenue. Your campaigns have to pay the rent, pay employees, and drive company growth. We won’t send you meaningless metrics to justify our bill.
Data kills egos
Pretty landing pages don’t always win. Creative taglines often lose to simple customer testimonials. You’ll always be surprised at what customer research uncovers. Data helps us fail faster. With testing and analysis, we use data to find the story that builds your business.
Mirrors, frames, and emotion
Frames help buyers choose what to ignore and influence what they believe. If you want to sell, you need to mirror back the beliefs and emotions that a buyer uses to interpret their world. We help you discover and use emotional frames to your advantage.
Audience + Creative
First, we skip the power animals
Most agencies begin with you. They take you on an elaborate brand discovery odyssey where you talk about your favorite colors, power animals, and your difficult relationship with your stepmother.
Branding is important, but it can focus too much on your story instead of discovering what your audience wants. We use audience intelligence tools, deep analytics, user testing, surveys, and quantitative data to understand what drives your buyer.
Content & storyworlds
We’ve dreamt up iPhone apps to launch a documentary film and then built the world’s largest digital wall of hearts. We’ve sold photo apps on Mars (using green screens). And created animated banner ads with Pac-Man to sell enterprise IT software.
Our goal is to create content that doesn’t feel like marketing. Because the biggest barrier to you selling isn’t reaching an audience, it’s earning their attention, trust, and click.
Set goals, move fast
Too many agencies try to sound smart instead of actually giving you a solid tactical plan. Too much strategy means you’ll never get started. Too much tactical thinking means you’ll waste a lot of time getting to places you never planned to go. We try to find a balance.
Code + Measurement
From prototypes to products
For SaaS companies, we’ve built interfaces and simplified features. For tech brands, we’ve built content sites and apps.
We’ll also help you find product-market fit. We’ve done validation tests on the streets outside of our office, conducted user testing, and gathered audience feedback. If a concept doesn’t test well in the real world we head back inside. It’s like Madmen with longer hours and cheaper alcohol.
This is where a multi-channel execution plan comes in. Typically this is a phased approach. First, we execute direct response channels (paid search and display) to generate immediate traffic and results. When sales start rolling in we launch inbound campaigns across SEO, social media and content marketing channels.
We will also fine-tune your conversion path, run A/B tests, and work to improve your user experience.
Analytics + Revenue Tracking
Every client receives a web-based dashboard where you can track our progress and results. You’ll see key metrics such as CTR, conversion rate, and the acquisition cost for each channel.
We use our data to improve future campaigns and spark new ideas for content and campaigns.
