View Your Web Marketing Campaigns in a Whole New Light

Web marketing tends to be made up of several different systems all creating different campaigns that don’t talk to one another. Email marketing creates campaigns in their tools, the web team creates ad and search campaigns in another system, bloggers post to yet another system, and on and on. When it comes time to measure a campaign, you find yourself tyring to pull different data from all of these systems into a single report so you can assess the effectiveness of the campaign. This is a huge problem.

Lately, we’ve been thinking of ways that Marketing for Mavens can help solve this problem. The latest feature release which went out on Tuesday now includes campaign management. This is just the first phase but it already gives you the ability to create a campaign in Marketing for Mavens and develop a URL tracking code which you can use to track the effectiveness of your online campaigns. This is the start of what will become an in-depth measurement tool which will allow you to see:

  • how many people responded to a campaign
  • where each individual visitor went on your site
  • what PDF’s, videos, and audio files people were interested in
  • what forms were completed

This give you significantly more knowledge and a better understanding of the effectiveness of your campaigns. You know what works and what didn’t work and you can make changes accordingly.

This is Just the Beginning

Phase 2 is currently underway and will give you the ability to match your web content and promotions to the campaigns people respond to. So if you send out an email campaign, you can extend the campaign to your web site by using Marketing for Mavens to provide content that’s inline with the email message. Your web site now becomes a continuation of the story.

Detailed reporting is also coming in phase 2. Each campaign will be updated in real-time with the latest information all on one screen. Currently, individual campaign pages show you who was interested in your campaigns and you can drill down into each profile to gather more data. In phase 2, the information will be available on the campaign page so you can see all the information at quick glance.

We are very excited about the potential that campaign management brings to Marketing for Mavens. There is a world of potential here and we’re just scratching the surface. In the end, we want to make it as simple as possible for you to manage all of your web marketing campaigns in one location. To get started, join the beta, and email us with your feedback.
