Marketing attribution translates to top-notch services
Lighthouse invests a lot of time & budget in mapping the customer journey of their clients as accurately as possible. This is how they manage to get a bird’s-eye view of what works and what doesn’t.
Their experts are using a variety of tools to achieve that. Mapping a consumer’s journey means understanding:
- What problem are consumers looking to solve
- Where are they searching for a solution
- How do they prefer to get in touch with the business
With Nimbata in play, Lighthouse is able to figure out at what part of the customer journey phone calls are leading to sales & revenue.
Phone calls: A metric that heavily impacts revenue
In the end, revenue is the metric every business depends on.
Consumers that call a business usually have already made up their mind and are ready to buy. This is why phone calls convert to sales x8 faster than interest forms.
By focusing on metrics that are directly tied to revenue, Lighthouse’s results are measured on confirmed sales and not only clicks or other engagement metrics.
