Measure the true value of calls with AdWords imported call conversions

Even though calls are a major source of conversions for many businesses, it can be challenging to measure a consumer journey that starts online from a search ad and ends with an offline conversation.

Google has announced imported call conversions to help advertisers attribute revenue from phone calls back to their AdWords campaigns more accurately.

The Newbie eCommerce Marketing Guide to Conversion Rate Optimisation

If you run an eCommerce store, you probably aren’t satisfied with the conversions and revenue you’re getting. More is always better.

And even if you are satisfied with your conversion rates, there’s always an opportunity to improve. Don’t assume there’s a ceiling where you just can’t go any higher.

If you’re happy with 7%, you’d probably be happier with 10%. Don’t settle into the mindset of “my conversion rates are better than the industry average of X%.”

The conversion rate you should be striving for is any rate that’s better than what you have right now. In short – you should always be working to improve.

#eCommerce #CRO #Marketing
Here’s how to improve your e-commerce's user experience and boost your conversion rates, and you don’t need a ton of CRO knowledge to make it happen.

Grab Your Free Google+ Cover Photo Template
And shh... there's a bonus template at the end!

If you haven't yet created a new +Google+ cover photo for the new interface, you'll want to check this out. I give you a free template that I use for clients to create an optimal cover photo, taking into account the subtle nuances of the new Google+ profile layout.

I've also highlighted a few brands on Google+ who I think have done a fantastic job on their cover photos such as +CoSchedule, +Capri Laguna and +Stanfield Real Estate.

And if you read all the way to the end, I also give you a free Google+ Collections cover photo template. Because those are important too!

Grab it now, while it's hot! (And before they change something else around here! lol)

I love it here. I've made lots of friends and spoken at conferences on why Google+ is such an important strategy for business success.

The Twitter Addict's Guide to Google+ explains the terminology and basics in a way that Twitter users will understand, drawing comparisons and differences between the two.

Google+ for Business is a complete guide which accompanies my talks which will take you through creating an effective profile, using simple techniques to build your brand and engage an audience, right through to using Communities.

Really friendly staff and perfectly cooked chips. The first time I've had fish from a chippy in 15 years - I wasn't disappointed.

Bagels in New York were on our bucket list. When we spotted this place for a breakfast trip, we weren't disappointed. Plenty of choice of bagel flavours, sizes and toppings, I worked out somewhere in the region of 1,352 combinations including toasting or not and larger sizes. I couldn't even remember our two options and was amazed at how the staff managed it! Food was great, staff were very friendly and accommodating but only slightly let down by the seating and space. For the budget, no real complaints. Well worth a breakfast visit.

Amazing. Great service. Food was awesome and the waiting staff attentive without rushing us, despite it being VERY busy during our Friday evening visit. Warning for fellow Brits: don't expect 6 oz, 8 oz etc. steaks. It's just "a steak". There's no weight. They are huge though, so careful on the starter and side dish orders. Whilst it was by far our most expensive meal out, it was worth every dime, but I certainly wouldn't be doing it every night.

Allow plenty of time. We expected to be in the museum for 1-2 hours and we're amazed to discover that we'd been in there 3.5! This is like no museum you've ever been in elsewhere and is emotionally exhausting. I actually reached a point where I couldn't absorb any more information or emotion. You have been warned. Very well presented, very respectful and a celebration of the heroism of New Yorkers on that fateful day. I was also very pleased to see no blame or finger-pointing and a fair, considered explanation of the culprits and an admission of the failures that contributed to this dreadful event. If you're experiencing New York for more than a few days, this is a must-see.

Oh. My. God. A friend highly recommended the cheesecake and we weren't disappointed. I'd strongly recommend one slice between two though.

Great location within walking distance of Times Square, Central Park, Bloomingdales, Empire State and the Rockefeller Centre amongst others. The Chrysler Building could be viewed from our window too. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room spacious, with the usual trimmings you'd expect; big screen TV with plenty of channels, desk, comfortable chairs and table. Couldn't fault it at all. Thank you.
