Cost Per Conversion is one of the most relevant metrics in marketing. Also known as Cost Per Action (CPA), Cost Per Conversion shows how much money obtaining a real customer who will make a successful conversion actually costs. A conversion could be signing up for something, making a purchase, or watching a video. Consequently, the definition of a conversion depends on the campaign objectives. Moreover, Cost Per Conversion is a measure of how effective an ad is in achieving campaign goals.
Optimizing Cost Per Conversion is essential for businesses. This sounds reasonable as businesses always look to cut unnecessary expenses.

To address the challenges identified, The Good Marketer held a research and planning meeting with the Founder of Skylab who was able to share with them her thoughts on the issues which then made it possible to put together a comprehensive plan of action.
As part of this plan of action, they suggested a Facebook Advertising Campaign targeting Females aged 18-38 (based on existing customers) to drive Sign-Ups to the Taster Sessions which would not only drive brand awareness of Aerial as an exercise and it's benefits but the attendees of these Taster Sessions could then be up-sold too.
Subsequently, the team also identified a separate target audience which was those who were already aware of Aerial and it's many benefits but were looking for a place where they could practice and learn more therefore, they setup a Google Ads Campaign targeting popular keywords.
