website roi in a jarIf you don't track your ROI, you're not alone. But we do want to help you change that, because ROI is one of the most important numbers in your lead generation strategy. If you understand what investments are bringing you money, you can make smart business decisions—like increasing budgets that produce twice as much money as you put in, and axing campaigns that aren't profitable.
