Digital Marketing Checklist for Chief Marketing Officers

How can Digital Marketing help gather more leads?  We’ve prepared a high-level checklist to help you.

Strategic Conversions

Leads are the gold for digital marketers.

You’ve got a budget, goals, and need to prove your digital marketing campaign’s ROI. How can you show your team is meeting its objectives?  There are a lot of fancy acronyms and tactical names in this business, but in the end a company lives or dies on qualified leads your sales team can close (B2B) or buying customers for ecommerce and B2C sales.

At Webdirexion LLC, our team uses a marketing model known as “R.A.C.E.” (Reach, Act, Convert, Engage) to organize strategic thinking, the tactics that flow from it, and measurements to meet and exceed goals.

We’ve found this helps solve a lot of the challenges marketer’s face as shown on the chart at right.  Take a look at the top three challenges (Producing engaging content, doing it consistently, and proving ROI), and ask yourself how you now measure content effectiveness?  Shouldn’t you see direct results in terms of engagement and leads?  We think so.  We’ve written an eBook about R.A.C.E. strategies and tactics and will send you a copy along with a Digital Marketing checklist.

Facebook Kapow Split Test & How You Know It’s Done

What if you could increase readership for sales related blog posts by 67% or more?  And… what if you knew, before spending a lot of ad dollars on your content, exactly how well it engaged your target prospects?  Kapow.

Webdirexion Testing Kapow Campaign

Kapow: How split testing + Facebook audience engagement pays off — before your ad campaign (and after).

We do a lot of split testing at Webdirexion because it causes our content to perform better for clients and our agency itself.  Too many content marketers and web designers think they are done after their “first guess” at compelling copy and design.  Not so.  Better engagement of qualified prospects means more sales, so why would you not test for this?

In this post I’ll tell you about a Facebook pre-test “Kapow” tactic that helps you get your content optimized better results before a higher advertising spend.  Then I’ll answer the oft-asked question… how do you know when you have enough of a test sample so that your results are valid?  Quick tip — the wider the percentage of conversion results, the sooner you can end the test; see below.

More Leads: Built-in Split Testing in WordPress

Landing Page Optimization with Webdirexion

What if you could test every “module” on a page from slideshows to forms to subheadings to tab boxes?  Now you can using the Divi builder’s built in A/B testing.  One of the best solutions for smart content strategy that we have seen to date.  Learn why we’re building it into all of our latest projects.

We’re WordPress specialists and also literally wrote a book on CRO — Conversion Rate Optimization — so we were very pleased when a market leading theme developer upped their game and added A/B testing for over 30 modules (like slideshows, tabbed boxes, images, and text components) that are also part of the theme.

Split Testing with Divi

Split testing = more leads and customers.

It’s called Divi from Elegant Themes, and aside from the fact it makes layout go much faster with modular components, now with split testing (we sometimes call this “A/B” testing since it is common to test two variations of landing pages, but with this tool you can actually test several more variations) we like it so much we have been using it on all our recent projects including the new Old Town Portland site,  two Dental sites,  eCommerce sites, and for ProtoCall Services (design by Smith Creative Group) — one of our healthcare clients.  This is cutting edge for smart content strategy.
