Step #2: Make Financial Sense of Your Marketing ‘Big Data’

Let's now look at the financial data so we can tie the marketing activities and results to the money -- to the penny even!

START HERE: We typically start with the 'marketing spend' report produced by the accounting team.

Sam will help you establish your Return on Advertising Investment (ROAI) ratio(s) so you can measure the effectiveness of your sales and advertising.

Now, we'll define exactly what each ad is bringing you, how much each customer is costing you to attract, and even the cost per each inquiry (a.k.a cost per lead).
