CPPA: It’s not a typo! Cost per profitable acquisition is the metric to measure
Online advertisers need to consider the value of campaign targeting and which metrics best measure campaign success
Cost per acquisition (CPA) is a common measure to evaluate online campaigns, but may not be effective
CPA does not distinguish between profitable customers and those that may be costing more to service than the revenue they provide
Online marketers may be more concerned with CPA then who they are targeting to begin with
Improve upfront targeting and use cost per profitable acquisition (CPPA) metrics to better measure campaign results
ENHANCE TARGETING: Online advertisers can target households that have similar financial and economic profiles
as current best customers in their online efforts in order to better reach households that are likely to be profitable.
EVALUATE ACQUISITION PROFITABILITY: Then, campaigns can be evaluated by CPPA to show that the cost of online targeting is outweighed by percent of messages that reach
the desired target audience and the conversions in the target segment.
EXPECTED RESULTS: Enhance targeting and reduce campaign CPPA by over 50%
CPA for the targeted group was double that of the untargeted group, but this does not reveal the cost of acquiring profitable customers
CPPA for the targeted group was half that of the untargeted group
