Measuring lift to website traffic from various advertising channels

Quite often, more than one channel is used to increase the awareness of your website. It is very easy to measure the effect of online banners but how to measure the effect of other channels like billboards, TV, Print, and coffee sleeves etc.

One of the easiest ways is to determine the lift in the visitors/day prior to the launch of advertising. The following steps would should be taken:

Step 1: Determine the baseline visitors/day prior to the advertising launch.
Step 2: Determine the visitors/day during the advertising.
Step 3: Determine the percentage lift or difference (visitors/day during advertising – baseline visitors/day) / baseline visitors/day

If there is good news, you would notice a POSITIVE lift.
