For more than a year, the client employed a traditional, industry-standard search engine marketing (SEM) campaign that included Google Ads? pay-per-click (PPC) advertising and banner ads. Although the effort yielded some desirable results, the client was ?unsatisfied with the campaign?s cost-per-acquisition (CPA) numbers – or in other words, the amount of money it was spending to acquire new customers through SEM and PPC tactics.


In order to achieve better CPA numbers and overall online marketing results, the client first took the initiative to research consumer targeting and segmentation best practices. Their research suggested that the adoption of increased/improved hyper-segmentation tactics ? the practice of targeting customers based on a very specific set of demographics and behaviors ? would decrease the amount they were spending on customer acquisition and generally improve online marketing results. MatchPoint? Analytics allowed the client to apply advanced hyper-segmentation tactics and achieve a 44% savings in cost-per-customer acquisition for pay-per-click advertising.


This research effort led the client straight to the front door of MindEcology, or more specifically, to MindEcology?s MatchPoint ? Analytics, the agency?s flagship research product. MatchPoint? employs advanced database analytics and market segmentation tactics that help businesses better identify, message, and convert populations of wellqualified, hyper-targeted customer prospects.


After completing a MatchPoint? analysis, MindEcology set up a test campaign that featured:?Two test markets (Dallas-Ft. Worth and Phoenix) of prospective customers identified through MatchPoint? Analytics. ?Two control markets (Miami and Charlotte) of prospects identified with traditional, industry-standard Google Ads PPC targeting strategies. ?The client then worked with MindEcology to launch a six week, $1,000 online advertising campaign for each market.


At the end of the six week test period, the client compared customer acquisition results between the two campaigns:

  • Average CPA for the control campaign (using traditional PPC): $13.68
  • Average CPA for the test campaign (using MatchPoint? Analytics): $7.69
