FAQ – LET’S GET INTO THE “MEAT & POTATOES” OF THIS TRACKING METHOD….
Why do I need to track the traffic from a forwarded domain to my “real” destination URL?
A) Do you have an advertising bill and your wondering if its worth it?
B) Have you considered that the definition of Return-On-Investment (ROI) equals (=) Leads from Calls + Leads from URL visits to your website listed in this advertising medium (offline)?
Simply put, now you can track both referring sites traffic & offline (Ie: yellow pages advertising, print advertising) advertising in which you want to see both the Call tracking results & the website visits that your print advertising is bringing you. For example, print advertising ROI = Leads from Calls that the prospect took + Leads from a url that the prospect typed in to find out more about you or to make a purchase decision.
OK, Here is a Case Study Example for you: “To Renew or Not to Renew, That is the Question!”
So…… If you have more traffic to the URL in the print ad than to the phone number in the ad, what does that say? It says that at very least the prospect wants more information about you, your products and services in order to make an educated buying decision. It paints a different story, and whether or not you would renew the ad is not the point. The point is that you understand how the user, or prospect uses Offline Media (in this case), in order for you to maximize your conversion and Sales. Without this information, you may have just cut or downsized the yellow page ad without having all of the facts. Our Goal is for you to make an informed decision, whatever that decision may be. The Reality is………that you, the business owner, are busy trying to run a business, not just your marketing, and most likely, you are making financial decisions about ALL of your advertising with little to no transparency. We want to fix that for you! We want to give you the facts that you need to make an informed decision in seconds without wading through a billion confusing reports. Let’s keep it simple, shall we? As a side note, we do offer Yellow Page & Print & Internet Consulting to help you ask the right questions about your marketing so that you can maximize your productivity & your profitability, click here for more info or call us to discuss your situation at (805) 910-7066

Why Don’t I Use PURL Marketing with a custom destination landing page created just for each recipient of your direct mail or email marketing campaign?
A) Because you don’t have the time, resources, sophistication, skill set nor money to spend this much energy on a custom destination landing page for EACH and everyone of your customers. Besides didnt you just drop a couple thousand on your website this year updating it anyway? Why are you going through that again? All you really want to do is to know how much to spend in offline media such as print, yellow pages, magazines or coupons…..AND…..you probably already have your internet strategy, don’t you?
B) Simplicity. All you really want to know is did a prospect from an offline advertsing source go to my website for more information or to buy from me?

First, that looks crappy to the user, Also, users DON’T LIKE TO type in long URL’s, they rather click on them and since they can’t click a url in an offline advertising print medium etc, they need to type it in a browser. So why not make it easier for them?
Secondly, now you have to Login to Google Analytics, then scroll down and find it (Question: How Good are your Google Analytics Skills? Answer: Don’t worry, we don’t make you learn a new program just to get the results of your ad campaign.)
Thirdly, now if you forget to login to your Google Analytics acct, you need to pay a web guy to do it and that costs more than we charge for the entire year! “What are ya’ doin? Don’t do that!” 🙂 We just send you your results and soon we’ll have a 24/7 login for you to access them anytime you want!
