Buying Stages and Ad Campaigns

For example, if you are investing in campaigns focused at driving traffic to your site, you should be planning those campaigns to match your intended prospect’s buying stage.

August 17th, 2009

ses09_logoBryan and I had the honor of attending and speaking at this year’s Search Engine Strategies Conference in San Jose. The amount of blogging and tweeting going on during the conference was phenomenal, so we won’t attempt to “cover” what went on.

Instead, we’d like to present our brief “Best Of” List so you can get some quick highlights from our (somewhat biased) perspective:

Are Your Analytics Causing You to Lose 30% of Your Sales?

June 16th, 2009

#1 Pay Per Click Marketing Lie

December 12th, 2008

My name is Bryan and I am a screenshot addict.

When I fall off the wagon, every so often, I’ll go ahead and pick a keyphrase and start clicking through PPC ads and their landing pages and take screenshots of the whole entire experience. You can’t imagine how often the experience from keyword to ad to landing page is broken. I want to call them and yell at them to subscribe to OnTarget. I don’t do it. Instead a few weeks…
