Here’s what you’re missing from your ad campaigns

Spending more time on optimizing your post-click experience can be a game-changer to turn your campaigns into conversions.

Not to put anyone down, but only 4% of ad clicks actually convert. Meaning 96% of your strategically planned campaign, the time perfecting your target audience and your super creative visuals and copywriting is going to waste. Why is this happening?

A common mistake that ad managers and digital marketers make is neglecting the post-click experience. A lot of their time is spent targeting the right audience, microtargeting and creating top-notch visuals. When in fact, what happens after the click is as important and it might be the deal-breaker between gaining or losing that lead.

Your ad can generate interest, but it won't guarantee the conversion.

So, what is post-click optimization?

Basically, is everything that happens between the ad click and the conversion. When your target audience clicks on your ad, the work is not over yet. You want to make sure the post-click page is optimized to engage with the prospect, this could be done by making sure you have a good loading time, matching content, mobile-first and interactive experience.

The pre-click experience: Everything that a target views whether or not they click through your ad. These are things like platform, location, copy, media, targeting, etc.

The post-click experience: Everything that the target sees and interacts with once they clicked the ad.

What your post-click experience should host:

  • Interactive content
  • Mobile-first layout
  • fast-loading landing page
  • CTA for lead acquisition
  • Branded and matching content from your ad

How to successfully convert from a post-click experience

Be interactive

Just like we mentioned in our previous Interactive Advertising post, 79% of marketers agree that interactive content will engage consumers at a higher rate. And engaged consumers are more compelled to act on what is presented to them.

Interactive elements can include quizzes, polls, open questions, engaging videos, QR codes among a few.

Be personal

74% of prospects don’t feel compelled to act when the content is not personalized and over 79% won’t consider a purchase if they go through generic content to get to the shopping point.

You can nail personalisation by telling an interactive story, giving exclusive access to your brand, including a relevant narrative or by being on your customer’s shoes. Think about what their pain points are, their interests might be, what they do in their free time etc. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to use original visuals and savvy, human messaging. Check out our Interactive Story guide to become a pro story builder.

Be mobile

You know us, we’re all about mobile-first content and with post-click experiences is no different. You own your campaign, so you know whether your target audience will be exposed to your ad on their phones or desktop. If your landing page is not optimized for mobile, your users will exit almost instantly, wasting your ad spend and their time.

You have a gorgeous landing page or e-commerce site, but it’s almost impossible to make it mobile. Worry not, we’ve got the alternative for it.
