Track things like web form submissions, clicks on social media icons, video plays, etc.
Do you receive inquiries via phone?
Make sure you set up call tracking*
Have someone listen to or “tag” your calls too (because not all calls are leads)
Do you use other forms of online advertising?
Make sure you track them in Google Analytics (with special tracking URLs)
Make sure you track the calls coming from other online marketing strategies
Do you use traditional forms of advertising (print, radio, tv, etc.)
Make sure you assign a specific phone number to each advertising campaign
Make sure you use a specific URL or campaign specific landing page
“We trust our support team at Blue Corona completely and quite frankly are involved in very little of what they do for us. They truly understand SEO and what is needed to make it work. I would say this has been the most valuable aspect of working with Blue Corona. They do so with little to no effort on our part, which allows our sales managers to focus on sales rather than SEO tasks and education. For all of these reasons I would recommend Blue Corona to any business seeking Web design and a strong Internet presence. ”
