Marketing for Leads, Sales, and Revenue: 2017 Edition

When you rotate a map of England to the right ninety degrees, it looks vaguely like a ragged old shoe. Could this be a clue to the political meaning behind the nursery rhyme “The Little Old Woman who Lived in a Shoe?”

Marketing for Leads, Sales, and Revenue: 2017 Edition | United WebWorksSome historians believe the “Old Woman” is Great Britain’s King George II. He’s the fellow who started the 18th century craze for men wearing white powdered wigs, possibly giving rise to the Old Woman moniker. Apparently he was met with a good deal of insubordination while serving as sovereign and, like the elderly mother in the rhyme, had a crisis of planning when it came to his “children.”

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.

She had so many children, she didn't know what to do;

She gave them some broth without any bread;

Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

Some think “children” refers to parliament. We prefer the interpretation that points to the global empire of colonies under British rule. Could George II’s haughty mistreatment of his colonial possessions have been one of the root causes of the rebellion that occurred at the end of the century under his grandson, George III?

No one knows for sure who’s who in the nursery rhyme, but what is certain is this: Whether you’re ruling an empire or running a business, you need to plan carefully with the best information available.

So you need a solid reason to jump into effective internet marketing, to shift your advertising budget and possibly hire someone to help with it. 
You need reasons based on hard numbers. 
Well, you got it.

Prove it: Measure Your Marketing for Real Return on Investment

The Keys to Long Term Return on Investment (ROI)

Measure Your Marketing for Real Return on Investment | United WebWorks Savannah GAIn the results of Hubspot's 2016 survey of marketing managers, it was shown that 43% of all marketers identify proving ROI as one of their top marketing challenges. It seems that “Prove it,” is not just a playground taunt, nor is it limited to geometry class.

The more accurate and precise your measurement of reality is, the better chance your enterprise will succeed. If knowledge is power, you better know information that accurately matches reality!

The importance of being able to calculate and prove your Internet Marketing ROI is not to be taken lightly. Without being able to accurately measure it, a business doesn't have the ability to improve its performance in the areas that need it the most, and finds itself blindly investing in “improvements” that may be just the opposite.
