So we’ve taken a few stabs at this in the past – but the results were either too incomplete (print the reports on thin paper and hold them up to a bright light) or too hard to use (you had to invest a ton of time and be really into analytics to get any value). But we’re not satisfied with that. We’ve been working really hard at a new approach – an approach we call “Origins.”
One of the lessons we tried to use in developing Origins is that it’s a mistake to focus more on accuracy for its own sake, and lose sight of the real goal – understanding and improving the return on your advertising spending. To the extent you worry about getting to the right of the decimal place, you get a system that’s accurate and powerful but too hard and time-consuming to actually use.
So we’re focusing on actionable data – in the form of comparative results between your advertising sources – and not so much on academic precision for its own sake.
What Are the Big Elements of The Origins Tool?
- a customizable definition of the funnel
- define origins & spending
- back-end process that tracks individual driver progress automatically with no additional recruiter/driver work
