Learn how to measure the effectiveness of your marketing by treating your marketing strategies with the same approach you use for sales. Apply a focused approach to your inbound marketing strategy and leave complex marketing behind.
The most important objective within your business is your Return On Investment (ROI). Cutting out the useless white noise that can make focusing on reaching your goals difficult will help you drive sales and prove your ROI. At the topmost level, these goals should address the Top of the Funnel (TOFU), Middle of the Funnel (MOFU) and the Bottom of the Funnel (BOFU).
TOFU: Use blogging, social media and search engine optimization to increase traffic to your website.
MOFU: Translate visitors into sales using things like e-books and webinars.
BOFU: By the time your visitor reaches the bottom of the funnel they should be ready to make a purchase. By using more qualified marketing techniques like email and case studies to determine where the visitor is most likely to make their purchase.
