Traffic metrics are effective tools through wish the success of brand awareness campaigns can be analyzed. Traffic meters include clicks, impressions and user engagement.
Monitoring increase in traffic: If an advertising campaign generates traffic it determines that the campaign was successful in both attracting and engaging the users through creative advertisements and leads. Traffic can either be generated through paid sources or direct visits by the users. While traffic generated through paid sources is expected since that is what businesses are paying for, it is important that any increase in branded search and direct visits by users are also monitored.
Analyzing click-thru-rate: Also known as CTR, click-through-rates determines how often or how many times users “clicked” your ad compared to the number of times the advertisement was viewed to them. For instance, if your business’s digital advertisement was shown to users and one user “clicks” it, then it makes a 1% CTR.
Through CTR, the effectiveness of your advertisement targeting is measured. Low volumes of CTRs indicate that your digital advertisement is not reaching the right audience or is lacking in something that fails to compel users to “click” your ad.
