Online Marketing and Advertising Metrics

Wednesday, December 01, 2010


Online marketing and advertising is a strategy every business owner should be using to improve the bottom line and generate more business. Below are three key metrics to use for gauging your online marketing and advertising efforts and effect.

Cost Per Lead (CPL) is the cost of bringing a lead to your business. Leads can come from a variety of generation methods, including: opting-in to your email list on your website, calling your office, filling out your online form, purchasing a product, et cetera. Generating these leads cost you something. For example, the cost of maintaining your website, the cost of getting your phone number in front of the customer, the cost of your online marketing and so on. Measuring your cost per lead is very important.

Software for Ecommerce Websites

Monday, November 15, 2010


If you're looking to build a website with ecommerce functions, there are a lot of options to choose from!

When reviewing ecommerce software, make sure the system you choose provides not only ecommerce, but the ability to manage your website, a customer database, website analytics and reporting, and an easy to use interface.

It's also important to read the documentation... you might be stuck installing multiple plug-ins and writing code! Not fun.

If you don't want to write code or waste time and money on fiddly codes or add-on modules for your site, then Bullsprig's system is perfect for you. Our integrated website system gives you fully functional ecommerce capabilities, straight out of the box.

When you partner with Bullsprig for your website design and development, we give you a website (and training) that frees you to focus on your unique business goals, not waste time mastering HTML and other web technologies.

Get professional help for your Online Marketing

Saturday, August 07, 2010


A friend of mine owns a couple of rental properties here in Reno. A few weeks ago I ran into him at The Home Depot. He was buying drywall supplies... evidently one of his tenants had destroyed a five foot area of drywall. So there he was buying his supplies, getting ready to fix the damaged wall.

I talked to him a little while later and asked about the drywall. He said it took him 5 days and about $450 to fix the wall. When I asked him how it looked, he replied, "It'll work".

That conversation got me thinking about business owners, their websites and online maketing. There are a ton of "do-it-yourselfers" in business. People who ask the question, "Why should I pay someone to build website? I can do it myself."

Of course you can build your own website. There are tons of free services out there that will allow you to do just that. But, the end result usually works out like my buddy who repaired his own drywall: learn how to do it, spend a lot of money and time, and end-up with something less-than desirable. Something that "will do".

As business owners, we justified learning how to do things ourselves in order to save the cost of paying someone else to do it. I think this philosophy works for some specific business issues. But it won't work for your website, your pay-per-click campaigns or your search engine optimization.

These online initiatives are simply too complex to handle yourself (that is, if you want to see results). In today's world, your website is more important than your storefront. Spend the money and get professional help.

Online Business and Brand Consulting

Wednesday, July 21, 2010


I'm a bus dev guy. That is my passion. I currently own two businesses and am working on a third. Being an entrepreneur is hard. In addition to the long hours and hard work, there is a lot of ups and downs! And, (in most cases) when you first start out, you have to do--and learn--everything: accounting, marketing, sales, operations, legal, fixing the toilet... et cetera. Is it worth it? Totally!

When I first started my web design and development company Bullsprig I didn't quit my day job. Let's face it, I needed to pay the bills somehow. What I did was work on the business at night, after my "real job". I would come home from work and spend time with my wife (girlfriend at the time) then, when she went to bed, I would get to work. This is what it takes guys. Hard work. Period. No other way about it.

I have a lot of entrepreneur / start-up business clients at Bullsprig. I love it because I love helping people achieve their dream of financial independence. Over the past couple of months, I have taken a good, 360 degree, look at my business. What are my clients really looking for? What do my clients want from me?

There is obviously a lot of answers to these questions, but I think I have really narrowed it down.

So, what's the point of this post? Well, I want to tell all my beloved readers and clients I'm taking Bullsprig in a new direction. Yes, we will continue to provide web design and development services and online marketing services. But, we're going to go a step further and provide more consulting services regarding their online and social media presence. We're going to help our clients build brand equity online.
