Advertisements are important tools to build brand awareness and drive prospective families to an open house or other admission event but not all advertisements are created equal. While digital ads often give you great metrics like impressions and click-through-rate, print ads can be appear in local papers or prestige publications. So how do you calculate ROI on print ads?
One way to track the ROI on print ads is to create a custom landing page on your website and then direct families to that page from your print ad. If you have multiple ads in multiple publications just create duplicates of your landing page with slightly different URLs. Hide those pages on the navigation so traffic to the pages is only coming from your print ads. Make sure to have a form on the page where families can provide you with their email address. Now you can track visits to your website and leads from individual print ads.
