As online platforms continue to enhance their business advertising features, savvy owners can funnel their marketing dollars into smaller, more relevant audiences. These prospects are more likely to become customers, drive revenue, and promote word-of-mouth marketing.

As you better define your inputs and develop your online tracking tools and techniques, you’re better able to target your campaigns to the right people, and increase marketing effectiveness and return on investment.
