Firstly, perhaps you’re wondering what’s a strategic marketing plan?

Strategic marketing planning is a process.

Every business should go through this process to plan…

And implement effective marketing strategies.

Strategic marketing planning takes several aspects of marketing.

And promotion into consideration…

On the flip side, what are the tools of marketing?

Marketing tools are development and promotional strategies.

These are the action steps your business uses.

These are used to develop and promote products or services.

A quick example…

Marketing tools are market research surveys and focus groups.

What’s the point?

These numbers mean nothing without context.

You already know the concept of too much or too little…

Too high or too low…

It is all meaningless without context.

The same principle applies to your marketing metrics.

In fact, almost all internet marketers use shallow funnel metrics.

Metrics like cost-per-click and earnings-per-click.

Yeah it’s all I looked at…

And this is how most make strategic marketing decisions.

You see, there are two sides to every marketing equation…

How much did you spend…

How much did you make…

Simple right?

While these shallow funnel metrics on the surface can be useful.

In some ways, they do not tell both sides of the mathematical story.

And are not the metrics you need to be using to scale your business.

Why?

Because cost-per-click only (CPC) uses expense side of conversions.

The equation ignores whether or not you generated any money.

Earnings-per-click (EPC)…

EPC tells you how much you made…would you agree?

Still it ignores how much you spent.

Reality is each only tells one-side of the mathematical story.

Should you ignore one or the other?

Now you understand the types of metrics as shallow funnel metrics.

On the other hand…

There are metrics which show the full conversion story.

Metrics must take into account…

Revenue…

And expense side of the equation.

This is what deep funnel metrics is all about.

Two fast and easy examples…

Deep funnel metrics are:

Profit Per Lead (PPL)…

Calculated as amount of revenue generated per lead…

Minus the cost per lead.

Return on Investment (ROI)…

Calculated as the total revenue generated.

Minus cost to generate revenue…

Divided by investment (also know as ad expenses).

So why do these deep funnel metrics make all the difference?

And because when it comes to making key decisions…

Be it promotional and scaling your business success.

You are very clear and avoid the mind numbing doubtful thoughts.

” I think this ads working or I ‘guess’ we should renew this ad spend”.

No opinions…

No second guessing…

Just simple numbers that do the heavy lifting for you.

At the end of the day…

The big marketing decision you need make are valuable.

Focus specifically on PPL and ROI.

You ask yourself one question…

Is this marketing activity making money?

That’s it!

Who cares about those shallow funnel metrics like CPC and EPC!

Yes! You should understand from a traffic management standpoint…

You can optimize your ad spend by looking at your cpc or epc.

In fact, when it comes to the big strategic marketing decisions…

It really doesn’t matter what your CPC or EPC…does it make sense?

Is CPC of $.30 good?

Is a CPC of $9.00 bad?

You don’t know just by looking right?

Not without context of deep funnel metrics to guide your decision.

What if you can spend $1 today…

To get $1 or more back tomorrow.

Would you do it?

Regardless of the CPC or EPC?

Of course you would in a heartbeat!

You’d be strangling and starving your business growth if you didn’t.

What if you can get good quality leads?

And new customers…

While recouping most if not all of your ad spend!

Obviously without second thoughts that’s key to scaling, right?
