Turning clicks into leads

By Marcia Mendonca, June 18th, 2014 - PERMALINK

Clicks into leads

Here is a comment that we often hear from clients after a campaign:

“The clicks were great but we don’t know who looked at our ads. We don’t know if it really worked.”

It is clear that the client intended to measure the campaign success by identifying the clicks.

However, he did not prepare a conversion path to collect this important data.

In this case, a landing page offering the download of an interesting white paper as an example would have accomplished his goal of identifying the click. From that point on, that identified lead could be added to their sales funnel or lead nurturing process.

Let us help you learn more on how to capture lead intelligence for your team.

Your ad campaign beyond clicks

By Marcia Mendonca, June 18th, 2014 - PERMALINK

Ad beyond clicks

According to a comScore research “advertisers and media planners ought to break their addiction to clicks and instead look to more meaningful metrics for evaluating campaign performance”.

It is a proven fact that we spend a lot more time online browsing than actively looking to buy something. And while it is fantastic to be on the path of those ready to buy, we can’t ignore those that we can influence.

The other day, I was just about to do some research on training for my sales team when I remembered an advertisement I had seen months ago. The ad was funny and stuck with me. It doesn’t mean that I will buy their program without researching the competition, but they sure found a way to make me consider them as an option – and I’m now actively looking for a solution.

So, the question becomes… how many offline and even online prospects come to you when the need arises because they remembered your ad?

They probably won’t tell you that and that is why the click itself is not an accurate measurement.

Advertising should fit with a well-balanced persistent marketing program comprising tactile lead qualification campaigns and longer term awareness development campaigns.

Keep in mind ad recall and brand development! Advertising is essential and well-designed ads will go a long way in extending the results of your campaign. This is why in time of crises you shouldn’t stop advertising.

Which companies will come to mind when market conditions improve?

International Compensation Guidelines for Mining Exploration - Now Available!

By Jennifer Leinart, May 6th, 2014 - PERMALINK

Geologist salaries in Australia/Asia and North America continue to outpace their counterparts in other regions of the world, according to a study by CostMine, InfoMine USA.  A total of 2,303 respondents, representing Exploration Managers, Geologists, and GIS professionals, from around the globe are included in this study.

Expatriate geologists with 6 – 20 years of experience, working in the Australia/Asia region, are reporting as much as 52% more than their counterparts in other regions, while an expatriate geologist with the same experience in North America is making 32% more than a geologist in other regions.  Nationals are also making more at 34% and 32% respectively.  Even an entry level geologist (less than 6 years’ experience) is more highly paid in those regions.  An entry level geologist in Australia/Asia is bringing home an average of US$69,700, compared to a geologist with the same experience in Africa at US$40,000.  The geologist commanding the highest salary is an expatriate geologist with more than 20 years’ experience, working in Africa, at an average salary of US$161,500.

In addition to salaries, the newly released International Compensation Guidelines for Mining Exploration report includes demographic information, short country profiles with pertinent labor information and a comparison of salaries from our previous surveys.   The complete survey report can be purchased from CostMine.  Details are available here or by calling +1 509 328-8023.
