Reducing B2B Cost Per Lead – Conversion Rate Optimisation and User Experience
Most SEO and PPC marketing activity is entirely trackable and measurable. Perhaps the most widely used B2B marketing performance metric is cost per lead (CPL), cost per enquiry (CPE) or cost per action (CPA). The essence of lowering cost per lead is a 7 stage process:
- Understanding customer organisations and purchasing functions and how they make buying decisions in your specific market category.
- Finding the keyword search terms with the greatest propensity, or intent, to “convert” into an enquiry, request for information, quotation or even order. Build your proposition around the business challenges and problems your customers face and the solutions they are seeking, rather than products or services.
- Cutting out wasteful expenditure by avoiding ambiguous terms that may attract B2C and other unwanted visitors.
- Once the priority terms are found it is then a question of using effective landing pages, conversion rate optimisation and user experience techniques to stimulate relevant site visitors into being engaged and making the required contact action.
- Using device, geographic, demographic and timing bidding preferences to focus on the visitors most likely to convert.
- Segmentation. Adapting your activity to key customer segments. Specific verticals, or organisations by scale e.g. multinational enterprises, UK PLCs, large limited businesses or SMEs. Public or private sectors.
- Applying data and lessons learned from existing customer databases, CRM, lead scoring or client screening processes.
