A Custom GPT we built to showcase the potential. Lead Gen Guide Preview:  Allows a user to prompt a guide topic, then GPT will write a sample outline, write an introduction, and then offer a follow-up email with an offer you prompt. Click and test if you are a paid user, or we can demo.

Watch the video demo of 4 B2C ChatGPTs we created, from eBook planning to offer strategies. The example is for a ficticious franchise weight loss center but can apply to any business.  Together we’ll use these tools and plan targeted messaging with AI, to generate new prospects and customers. 

Custon GPTs are for paid users of ChatGPT, but we’d be happy to demo this during our discovery call.

Lead Generation Radio

Below are a number of samples of 30-second radio ads, with fictitious companies, to give you intrigue on what could be if we worked together. These are not professionally cleaned up, but just prototypes.  Actual ads, built with a combination of our AI tools and your branding, with top-notch freelancers if needed, are designed to attract attention quickly, and allow time for audiences to remember the vanity URLs (memorable websites that redirect to the actual guide landing page/website we build, or manage with your team). We can do 60s as well, but 30s are the most common length with on-air or streaming radio/digital audio.

Vanity URLs: A Powerful CTA for Downloading Educational Guides

Vanity URLs as CTAs:

Vanity URLs are short, memorable web addresses that replace lengthy website URLs in radio ads. They serve as a clear and convenient call to action (CTA) for listeners to download your educational guides. Here’s how they benefit your radio lead generation strategy:

  • Enhanced Recall: Vanity URLs are easier to remember than complex website addresses, especially for listeners who can’t write them down immediately.
  • Brand Reinforcement: They can incorporate your brand name or keywords associated with your guide, strengthening brand recognition.
  • Professional Appearance: Vanity URLs convey a professional and trustworthy image.

Benefits of Using Vanity URLs with Radio Ads:

  • Increased Download Rates: Clear and memorable CTAs with vanity URLs lead to a higher likelihood of listeners downloading your guides.
  • Improved Tracking: Vanity URLs can be embedded with UTM parameters (Urchin Tracking Module) within Google Analytics 4 (GA4).

UTM Parameters for Tracking Results:

UTM parameters are tags attached to the end of your vanity URL that track specific details about your radio ad campaign. Here’s how they can be used:

  • Campaign Source: Identify the source of the traffic, in this case, “radio_lead_gen”.
  • Campaign Medium: Specify the advertising medium, such as “on-air” or “streaming_radio”.
  • Campaign Name: Distinguish between different radio ad campaigns, e.g., “Guide_A_Promotion” or “Guide_B_Launch”.
  • Campaign Term: Track specific keywords or demographics targeted within the radio campaign.

Tracking Success with GA4:

By integrating UTM parameters with your vanity URLs, you can track user behavior in GA4 and gain valuable insights, such as:

  • Which radio channels (on-air vs. streaming) generate the most downloads.
  • What radio stations within a specific format (news, music) are most effective for your target audience.
  • Which demographics downloading the guides (age, location, interests).
  • The performance of different lead magnets (Guide A vs. Guide B).

Refining Your Strategy:

By analyzing the data collected through GA4, you can refine your radio lead generation strategy. Here’s how:

  • Allocate Resources: Focus your budget on radio stations and ad formats that drive the most downloads.
  • Optimize Lead Magnets: Adapt or create new educational guides based on audience preferences and downloading trends.
  • Refine Targeting: Adjust your radio campaign’s targeting based on demographics with high download rates.

Conclusion:

Vanity URLs coupled with UTM parameters in GA4 create a powerful tracking system for your radio lead generation efforts. This data-driven approach allows you to continuously optimize your strategy to maximize the effectiveness of your radio ads and ultimately convert radio listeners into qualified leads.

Nurturing Leads and Driving Sales with Post-Download Follow-Up

After listeners download your educational guide through a radio ad’s CTA, NuSpark Media Group continues to nurture these leads through strategic follow-up via text or email. Here’s how:

Personalized Communication:

  • Segmented Audience: Segment leads based on demographics or interests from the guide download, allowing for personalized communication.
  • Targeted Offers: Tailor follow-up messages with offers relevant to each segment, such as discounts or consultations related to the guide’s topic.

Compelling Content and CTAs:

  • Value-Driven Messages: Provide additional value in follow-up messages with actionable insights, bonus materials, or exclusive content, keeping your brand top-of-mind.
  • Clear Calls to Action: Include concise CTAs guiding recipients toward actions such as visiting a landing page, scheduling a demo, or making a purchase.

Engagement Strategies:

  • Drip Campaigns: Use automated email drip campaigns to deliver a series of messages over time, nurturing leads and maintaining brand visibility.
  • Interactive Content: Incorporate elements like surveys or polls to gather insights and engage recipients with your brand.

Planning Mobile Offers

When prospects fill out forms on landing pages we would build, they get immediately put into a text keyword list, as long as they agree to offers, for promotional follow-up drip campaigns that we would plan together with the texting platform.  We can email as well.

REDEMPTION OPTIONS For Mobile Coupons

This setting allows you to choose a redemption type for your coupon. You can choose between the ‘standard’, ‘barcode’, ‘image’ or ‘redirect’ redemption types.

  • The standard redemption type simply shows the redemption code that you provide when the user redeems the coupon.
  • The barcode redemption type shows the redemption code that you provide in a scannable barcode format when the user redeems the coupon.
  • The image redemption type shows an image that you upload when the user redeems the coupon.
  • The redirect redemption type allows you to provide a URL to redirect the user to after they click the button to redeem. With this redemption type, users will not see the redemption screen of the coupon. They will immediately be redirected to a URL that you provide.

Campaign Measurement

Every radio test will include a text keyword to start. Since this is radio and using vanity URLs to web pages, the actual keyword is a list name that prospects will enter.  In this example, the form name below is called Spotify-guide, denoting the platform we are buying.  Each buying strategy will have its own keyword for tracking.

With the form saved, we embed the form code onto a website or landing page for the guide to be downloaded, alllowing prospects to enter their information, and then the contact info is sent to the text platform for the Spotify Keyword list.   Then we can plan follow-up promotions, like the example below for a Fitness Center.  Promotion will include a promo code, or other redemption options. This is a plan we would work on together. 

Now our approach to reporting. We’ll enter the media partner and type, the target segment, the content name and URL where it can be downloadedm as well as the selected vanity URL for the redirection. For Google Analytics conversion tracking, the guide URLs will need UTM parameters. In this example, Source is Spotify, Medium is Radio, Content is w2534 (using the content parameter as target audence segment here), and Campaign is Supplement Guide. Then for each segment we can track leads, media cost, and cost-per-lead.

Mobile Coupon

For each list we developed, we’ll create a drip text promotion, complete with promo code and redemption as shown above. Note if we send the prospects to a URL to redeem, again, we’ll set up GA4 tracking parameters for the URL, to measure the source, campaign, or segment sales came from.  Whether it’s website or landing page, with a web form and a place for a discount code, we’ll measure the results of the campaigns with rigor.
