Internet Marketing Cost Effectiveness
What are the main steps in the online sale process?
Advertising tools attract potential customers to the site. Tools can be different: seo, contextual advertising, display advertising, advertising on social networks, etc.
Part of the attracted visitors to the site performs the action you need: it orders a product or service using the order forms or calls on the phone number indicated on the site.
A part of potential customers who ordered and called made a purchase.
Each transaction brings the company some profit.
That is, if the cost of advertising on the Internet (website promotion) amounted to 10,000 rubles for the period, then the profit from sales through the website for this period should be more than 10,000 rubles, and then the investment efficiency in website promotion is more than one – and this is good.

Advertising is broadcast in the form of banners or messages (resembling a “context”) on sites (in systems) that are part of an affiliate network (for example, Begun, Google, etc.). Continue reading
The allowable marginal cost of the targeted action of the visitor on the site.
Website performance is measured not by the site’s position in the TOP, and not by the number of visitors, although most often site owners track and pay for these metrics. Website performance is measured by the number of calls, orders, requests from the site – the number of targeted actions performed by visitors on the site.
Targeted actions of the visitor on the site
Now popular is a model of payment for promotion services, such as payment for a targeted action committed by a visitor on a site.
The maximum allowable cost of the target action (appeal, order, application) of the visitor on the site (CPL / CPO) is the cost that the company can afford in the current or predicted situation.
The payment model for targeted actions is attractive, because payment is made after the fact and at first glance it has fewer risks. But it is worth noting two main risks: Continue reading
