The easiest and most superficial way to judge the success of any marketing program is to go by site visits and page views. Does that really translate into sales numbers? Can one accurately quantify the amount of deals that were closed and your return on investment by looking at site traffic readouts?

We think not.

That’s why we’re such firm believers in the cost per lead (CPL) model, which we’ve adopted as the foundation of our Direct Leads platform. Fueled by content marketing, Direct Leads is a lead generation platform that allows you to pay only for the leads that fit your pre-set criteria. This will ensure quantifyable effectiveness and a positive ROI.
