I love data. I have been accused, and found quilty, of an obsession with marketing analytics. Chocolate; not so much. But what about a yummy piece of huge cupcake?
Accenture Digital Media Awards
The goal of the Accenture Digital Media Awards is to showcase new digital developments, and to celebrate those companies, organisations and communities who are contributing to the sector’s rapid evolution.
The awards are recognised as the industry benchmark of excellence, attracting the attention of key players in the digital media industry each year. It’s nice to think that great work by small organizations like JEM 9 Marketing Consultancy is finding a way to break through, and making a difference for my clients.

Admittedly that was the calmer version of events. The excited version looked more like this.

Best Conversion Strategy
Business leaders and potential clients ask the meaning of ‘conversion rates’. Definitions include: “percentage of users who take a desired action”.
More practically this may mean the percentage who;
- click on an ad,
- visit your website from a social media post or
- download a whitepaper.
Really there is only one way to define a marketing conversion: revenue / eCommerce / sales / money / moola / dosh /readies. Ideally from a satisfied repeat customer.
But the real world is more complex with lots of little “microconversions”, steps on the customer journey from awareness through consideration of alternatives to a decision. You may be in love with your offering but your customers need become aware of your offering, consider the pros and cons, and the alternatives (including ‘doing nothing’).
At each step on the journey there is an opportunity to optimize, to improve. How can you answer questions better? Better examples, better headlines, better customer testimonials, best demos……….
Keep focused on the end goal, the conversion, while appreciating both the customer and their journey.
JEM 9 Best Conversion Strategy Project For Cara Mara
The Cara Mara luxury seaweed baths project was about driving awareness of an innovative new offer while considering the customer journey beyond just the initial click on the ad.
The project brought together Facebook advertising and an email marketing list with detailed website and Facebook analytics.
The results; smart decision through the customer journey from initial awareness to consideration on the website, and a comparison of paid social versus other digital marketing channels.
Many thanks to Cara Mara’s founder Richard McManus for enabling me to share the project.
