Marketer Jeremy Mayes last week shared some early results of his experience buying newspaper ads from Google. From his blog post on the subject:
1. In the grand scheme of things the overall traffic delivered via our ad was low – less than 1,000 visitors total.
2. Visitors who arrived at the site via the newspaper ad generated 70% fewer page views than visitors who arrive via PPC channels.
3. Visitors who arrived at the site via the newspaper ad spent 30% less time on the site than PPC traffic.
Despite those uninspiring results, Mayes remains enthusiastic about the prospects of buying print media this way.
