Tracking Your Website’s Return On Investment (ROI) 

Table of Contents

You wouldn’t run a business without measuring it. Alpha Key Digital treats your website like an asset of your business and we track what it’s delivering to your bottom line by calculating the return, investment gains, and total return.

Alpha Key uses Google Analytics to Track your Website’s ROI

Most businesses invest significantly in their website in money and time. Alpha Key Digital will calculate net profits, annual ROI, and cost of investment to determine what’s working and what can be improved.

Together, we can look at your business goals and work out:

  • Return On Investment (ROI) of your Online Efforts, ROI calculation (email, search, and advertising)
  • Track and Measure Online Goals
  • Track advertising campaigns from email marketing through to paid advertising to determine which investment is working
  • See How Your Website Is Used
  • Segment Visitors

But I Only Need a New Website, Right?

Your website is the cornerstone of your business’s online presence, but you should know what’s driving traffic, as you can see a lot more than just how many visitors are landing on your site.

If you want to revamp your website, your current analytics is a great place to start so you can replicate the good bits and improve on what’s not working.

Hidden inside analytics, Alpha Key Digital can find the information people seek that isn’t visible and discover the key questions your future customers want answers to. This can drive content, conversion, and future advertising campaigns.

Conversion Optimization

With SEO, social, and paid campaigns, you can drive as much traffic to your website as possible. Still, suppose your website doesn’t deliver as a destination. In that case, you’ll miss out on those vital conversions, whether a new lead via an email sign-up, an online purchase or booking, or just the pages your customers visit. 

And, notably, we will discern where they’re dropping out of your online sales funnel. You can even find out how long your lead time to purchase is and the demographics of your site visitors.

Should You Really Be Paying for Print Ads?

Despite what many digital consultants may say to you, print isn’t dead. There are ways you can track your print campaigns using online tracking to see which ones are most cost-effective. 

Many clients still think they should pay thousands for inclusion in online directory X or print publication Y, but when they see the numbers, they often reconsider due to the low volume of referrals. 

You need to put this measurement into context, but sometimes, it may make you reconsider where you allocate your advertising budget.

Alpha Key Digital Makes Your Website Work for You

Your website is an asset that really can work for you. Whether you use this data to drive your online budgeting or increase the value of your business, you need the correct tracking and metrics to measure seasonal trends or compare this period versus last year. 

If you aren’t tracking how your site is used, your website is little more than a glorified brochure.

It’s hard to track print advertising, but that’s not to say it doesn’t work. With online and digital tools, we can track everything.
