Understanding Your Customer's Journey

Cost Per Acquisition Explained

Client: Casa Mate Organic Tequila

What is Cost Per Acquisition (CPA)?

When we talk about CPA, we're delving into a narrative – the tale of a car buyer’s adventure. Let's call our buyer Alex.

Alex is hunting for a new vehicle. His journey starts when he notices an online ad about the latest SUV model. Intrigued, he visits the SUV's landing page. Over the next few days, he encounters reviews, testimonials, and even chats with a bot for financing options. Alex hesitates after seeing the price, wonders about the resale value, considers alternate models, and even a test drive. Weeks later, after an enticing price-drop email, he finally makes the purchase.

Your CPA? It's the cost of all efforts to bring Alex from that first click to the final purchase.

Why Does the Journey Matter?

Every hesitation, every contemplation Alex experienced? Those are your moments to standout, to connect, and to persuade. Understand his car-buying journey, and you're better equipped to optimize each touchpoint, thus reducing your cost per acquisition.
