The Performance Marketing

  • In an economic crisis context, in which investments are calibrated for the return of the business results, performance marketing becomes the online marketing strategy able to achieve company goals.

Performance Marketing is a new leverage in the Italian Market, it represents 6% of online investments: this is the starting point for the considerations presented at the first IAB Seminar of 2013.

The ojective is to achieve valued and qualified leads and to create a relationship with them.

In this context, business experts have to become a point of reference for the companies that want to maximize their investments in communication.

The creativity of the communication, a structured landing page, the stream of achievement of the conversion, the right level of engagement required by the user and structured tracking systems for each involved medium are all elements that affect the possible success of a lead campaign.
