DIGITAL MARKETING AUDIT
A digital marketing audit is a comprehensive analysis of a company's Internet marketing and its competitors.

Such an audit helps a businesses see bottlenecks and growth points in their digital strategy and earn more. If the audit identifies gaps in some channels, it also helps create a launch strategy and deal with these gaps.
AUDIT IS NECESSARY IF YOU WANT TO…
Start working with us with a one-time project
You want to start working with us, but are not ready to jump into a 3-, 6- or 12-month contract right away. You need to see what we offer and evaluate our action plan and the degree of immersion in your field.
Get an outsider's perspective
You already have contractors who do your digital marketing. You want to check if they are not wasting your budget, the advertising is set up correctly, or if there are other tricks and tools that will allow you to earn more.
Understand how to grow online
You may already have a $70,000 business strategy, but you need to figure out how to expand it into digital channels.

Or you are not ready to invest in a general business strategy, but you want to work more actively in digital marketing, and you need to analyze the competitors, the behavior of the target audience, the website and your online advertising.
WHAT DOES
AN AUDIT INVOLVE?



An ideal Customer Profile
Many companies create a customer profile rather abstractly. We single out the most profitable audience segments.

Here and below are impersonal examples taken from the actual audits:
Ideal Customer Profile
Many companies abstractly create a customer profile. We single out the most profitable audience segments.

Here and below are impersonal examples taken from the actual audits:
«The conversion rate for the age group 18-24 y.o. is above average for the website, 2.56% versus 1.85% for other age groups.

But given the session value, this group is not the most profitable one.

The most profitable groups in order of priority are 45-64, 18-24, and 65+.

Notably, the age groups generating the most conversions, 25-34 and 35-44, have the lowest ROI.

We recommend increasing bids for the 45-54 group by ~15% and reducing bids for the 35-44 group by ~20%»
Analytics audit
We check the accuracy of data collection in Google Analytics, goals setup, filters, events, the e-commerce module, pixels settings (for example, Facebook), and Google Tag Manager setup.
Analytics audit
We check the fidelity of traffic count in Google Analytics, goals setup, filters, events, the e- commerce module, pixels settings (for example, Facebook), and Google Tag Manager setup.
«More than 80% of the events in the account are associated with watching a video. At the same time, some of them do not indicate how users watch videos, which, in our opinion, is more important.
We would recommend replacing the "progress", "seek", "buffering" and "pause" events with "view 25%" and "view 50%". Then it will be possible to build a funnel:

Started a video → 25% watched → 50% → watched till the end»
Email and retention marketing audit
Checking email marketing setup and customer retention systems. We study forms for collecting leads on the website (including forms with certain offers: coupons, personal discounts, sweepstakes), segmentation of the contact base, triggered emails setup, deliverability, push notifications and chatbots. We detect errors.

This is an example of clear recommendations that our Clients usually get.

All basic settings needed to send marketing emails — DKIM, SPF, DMARC — are done correctly. It's good practice to use a subdomain on a dedicated server, especially with such a high sending volume. In this case, that would be delivery2.client.com.

Check the results from the Esputnik test sending here (link).

To improve mail security, we recommend setting the p=quarantine and sp=quarantine policies in DMARC. Note that these records should be introduced gradually using the pct=5% tag, periodically increasing the percentage by 5-10% while monitoring the results.
PPC Ads audit
As part of the audit, we provide recommendations on account structure, breakdown by region and device, use of strategies, search terms grouping, Ad formats, additional tools, use of UTM tags, remarketing campaigns setup and using scripts.

Here's an example of just one suggestion for a Client out of 14 in total.

Here's an example of just one suggestion for a Client out of 14 in total.
Given that groups contain a lot of audiences, it's important to make adjustments at the audience level (currently impossible due to the automatic bidding strategy).

For example, in the "Audiences converting" group, the "X1" audience spent only $14 in six months, and the cost per lead for this audience was only $0.39. The "X2" remarketing audience spent $356 with a lead costing $1.2 there (plus, this audience is included in another Ad group).

You can adjust your bids using manual bid adjustments so that the more effective audience gets more budget and can generate more leads.

WHAT DO YOU GET

Not an essay, but an audit
Some agencies sell automated or templated reviews disguised as an audit. Such "specialists" only point out absolutely all detected "errors" without prioritizing and analyzing them, and simply recommend correcting them all.

To briefly retell their audit, it boils down to a quote:

Fix anything that's wrong
However, just because you fix all the flaws in the layout, business results will not improve. Wikipedia and Google also have errors in code validity or specific technical aspects, but this does not prevent them from being successful projects.

Consultation
You can ask any questions regarding the audit: leave a comment in Google Docs or directly at a personal meeting. Our presentation of the audit findings often lasts 4 to 5 hours. And the Client comes out with a huge amount of insight and understanding of what to do in the coming years.
Earn more or spend less with the same number of conversions
In our experience, audits reveal holes that allow you to save 20% to 30% of the budget.

For example, iDeals ordered an audit from us, and following it, we reduced their advertising costs by 35% while preserving conversions, with a budget of over $100,000 per month.

If you want to spend more, we will help you increase conversions as your budget grows.

We ordered an email marketing audit. We received a detailed audit with a lot of advice: from the integrity of the database to email collection, checks for spam filters, and other aspects. Guys from the agency analyzed each case separately. According to the report, it was clear that all the information had been double-checked several times. Read the full review

The audit took more time than we had expected initially, but we got a tangible result. Not only did Roman's recommendations pay off soon, but, eventually, they also generated profit for our company. Besides, as a bonus, we received several recommendations not directly connected to PPC. Read the full review
