Why We Love Tracking (And You Should, Too!)

Tracking Is Creepy & Useless Without An Engagement Strategy


Do you want qualified leads for your business with full contact details segmented by lead strength?  Our online tracking tools & dedicated staff provide you with insights on how to generate even more business through our platform.




1. Easy-to-use tracking report


With XPRT, you won’t be in the dark when it comes to measuring your performance. Your tracking report dashboard provides you with top-line visitor & lead data on one screen, allowing you to evaluate how your results have evolved over time. But what’s great about the report is that you’re one click away from viewing full contact details of the leads who have interacted with your storefront and how they’ve interacted.

2. Generated leads


Your report stores all your generated leads and contact details then segments them by order of priority. Direct messages, including requests for quotation, are stored in your own inbox. Next comes a list of prospects who have interacted with your storefront, where you can filter out who’s viewed a video, downloaded a brochure, clicked through to your web & more so you can follow up. Lastly, you get a list of logged-in users who have visited your storefront. All leads can be easily exported to your own CRM.

3. Top content



This report shows which pages of your storefront are getting the most pageviews and who has viewed those pages. This can give you a better idea of which content is most popular and which content may need to be improved.




4. Geographical breakdown



This report shows where in the world visits to your storefront are coming from so you can make sure you’re reaching the right markets. We offer online tools where you can specify which locations you serve, as well as geo-targeted campaigns that can help you optimize geographical reach.


5. Email notifications



Whenever anything important happens on your storefront, we send you an immediate email notification. We all know how important it is to follow-up on urgent requests, but we take that a step further by immediately notifying you of other important activity, such as when a prospect has downloaded a brochure, viewed your contact details or clicked through to your web. That way you can follow up with these leads to ensure they’ve found the info they need.


6. Personalized customer care


Monitoring performance is only valuable if you interpret the data in order to make improvements. We know that’s easier said than done, so you will have a personal account manager available to help you evaluate the results and take actions to improve. Our customers are never treated as numbers. We take time to understand your needs and ensure your campaign meets your specific goals.

4. Enhanced search positioning & exposure


We can put you on the inside track by enhancing your positioning on all relevant search result pages of the site. You’ll also be more likely to appear within prominent site modules on high-traffic pages of our site, including the homepage. Your company logo and product images will get priority treatment on related companies & products modules that appear on your competitors’ storefronts.




5. Showcase campaigns


Launching a new product? Hosting an event? Running a promotion? Generate a high volume of leads in a short period of time. Think of it as a campaign within a campaign. As a sponsor, you’ll always benefit from high visibility, but for those times when you need more, you can start a month-long showcase and achieve your goals. Get higher positioning, include your product or event in an e-bulletin, feature an accompanying news story or article, and tack on an optional direct email blast.

6. Remove 3rd party ads from your storefront


If you have a free profile, you may notice your competitors sponsoring parts of your storefront. By upgrading to a bronze, silver or gold level, you can flip the coin. Get rid of third-party ads on your storefront and promote your business next to your competitors’ content instead.

By publishing great content users & buyers will find you via either a keyword search or by navigating through the site. Most searches are very specific so you would be found.

We have an internal logarithm like Google that

Getting the Right mix of Strategies can be a challenge …

Have you thought about …

How do I ensure my company and products appear under the right keyword & category searches?

The best way to ensure your company and products appear under the right searches is to ensure your content is keyword-rich. Here are a few tips:



  • Try to mix in keywords naturally. Don’t force them into the text or you`ll be sacrificing clarity for SEO. Above all, keep your customer in mind and write for them.

  • Do not use keyword lists. These are considered as spam by XPRT, our users & Google.

  • After submitting your content to XPRT, you may visit your live content the next day to see which keywords our system has detected.  These appear in a section called “Most popular related searches” at the bottom of your content pages.

  • No matter what keywords appear in the related searches section, your content will be searchable by all the keywords included within your content. The related searches section simply includes what we consider the most important of those keywords.

  • Priority is given in the search results to exact matches. If, for example, you’re selling a solution for hazardous waste, make sure the words “hazardous” and “waste” appear together in your content to increase the chances that a user searching on “hazardous waste” finds you.

How to write good Content on Environmental XPRT that will capture Leads …

So what does Environmental XPRT see as great lead-generating Storefront content?


First and foremost, our algorithm takes keyword search relevancy into account.  As an advertiser trying to optimize content to improve your Lead Generation, you should do the following:


  • Make sure your product titles include the brand name, standard name of the product (i.e. waste compactor, wastewater aerator, point source bailer) and model number.

  • Ensure the basic, 1000-character descriptions of your products & services are rich in relevant keywords.

  • Make use of extended descriptions to include additional keywords relevant to the product or service you are promoting.

  • Avoid keyword stuffing tactics: long lists of keywords, hard-to-read copy written for the sole purpose of including the maximum number of keywords possible.


While relevancy is the number one factor in achieving good search ranking, if you`re a bronze, silver or gold sponsor, you get priority & extra exposure on the site.
