Understand the Customer and Their Challenges

We start by getting to know your brand, so we can identify your target audience, their preferences, and their behaviors. Then we meet your potential leads where they are — and give them what they want — with compelling, targeted campaigns that grab their attention and spark interest in your brand.

Target the Right Traffic

Using personalized, meaningful interactions, we engage your highly qualified leads, building trust and positioning your brand as the solution to their needs, setting them up for successful conversion.

Upgrow has worked with hundreds of clients and delivers 130,000 conversions per year. Our process will work for you. We’ve driven conversions across various industries:

Better Ad Targeting =

Less Waste & Better Results

Audience targeting is essential for creating a successful and efficient lead generation or customer acquisition program. That’s why we take the time to understand your brand, build customer personas, and review your client profiles and digital marketing history to understand what works and what doesn’t.

We implement custom audiences on Google Ads and load in account-based marketing (ABM) lists to limit unqualified traffic and focus on decision-makers. We also utilize ClickGuard to prevent click fraud that can quickly exhaust the budget.

You don’t need visitors and leads — you need highly qualified leads that turn into opportunities.

That’s why powerful keyword strategies are the backbone of our SEO and Google Ads programs. We also use your CRM’s lead quality data to optimize our approach and ensure that your leads become paying customers.

How do you vary customer acquisition for B2B vs B2C?

Whether you’re chasing business customer prospects or direct e-commerce sales, new customer acquisition is vital to the success of your brand, but the approaches will be very different. 

For example, a B2B SAAS technology company may start with a top of funnel offer such as joining the email list in exchange for quality content such as an ebook, case study, or webinar. Marketing efforts will require planning offering different assets to different audiences to meet their needs at their specific stage in the buying process. CRM’s such as Hubspot are needed to stay organized and connect marketing with sales.


B2C consumer marketers may go straight for the sale by pointing a user to a product page. The user of sales, new product launches, and brand awareness will come into play. There may be additional acquisition channels such as influencer marketing and Amazon.

What is Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) in digital marketing?

This is a simple formula to understand how much you’re spending in advertising to earn a new customer. Ideally you want to keep the CAC as low as possible while still generating as many new customers as is profible.

Formula: CAC = Total Cost / # of Customers Generated

So while customer acquisition volume is important, all businesses want more customers, it’s also important to stay efficient and not repeat the high growth but failing profitability of brands like MoviePass. Smart customer acquisition campaigns start with efficiency and then add scale until the CAC is above their profitability limit.

Are customer acquisition agencies worth it?

Yes, the right customer acquisition agency is definitely worth the cost. A reputable customer acquisition agency can bring specialized knowledge, tools, and experience to the table, helping you generate high-quality leads more efficiently. Teaming with the right agency can reduce customer acquisition cost, optimize customer acquisition efforts, implement a smarter customer acquisition strategy, incorporate new customer acquisition methods, and reduce customer churn. But it’s important to carefully evaluate agencies, consider your budget, and assess the potential ROI before deciding if their services align with your business needs.


How long will it take to see results?

Customer acquisition starts in the first 30 days. Upgrow has made a significant impact on clients in that time. But generally, lead generation is a long-term plan with various factors.  The time to yield tangible customer growth results can vary widely depending on several factors:

  • Industry and Audience: The complexity of your industry and the characteristics of your target audience can influence lead generation speed. Some industries may have longer sales cycles, requiring more time to nurture leads.
  • Customer Acquisition Strategies: Different customer acquisition strategies have different timeframes for results. Some strategies like paid advertising can yield quicker results, while strategies like content marketing and SEO may take longer to build organic traffic and leads.
  • Customer Lifetime Value (LTV): Higher-value customers can take longer to target, nurture, and close.
  • Effort and Resources: The level of effort, resources, and budget allocated to lead generation initiatives also impacts the timeline. More resources might expedite the process.
  • Testing and Optimization: It’s common to test and optimize lead generation strategies over time. Initial efforts might take longer as you refine your approach for better results.
  • Market Conditions: External factors like market trends, competition, and economic conditions can influence the speed of lead generation.

In general, it’s advisable to view customer acquisition as a continuous process rather than a fixed timeline. While some immediate results can be achieved, building a consistent pipeline of quality leads usually takes several months of consistent effort. It’s essential to have realistic expectations and measure progress regularly to refine your strategies.

What if I don’t have any brand awareness?

Completely new brands, that no one has heard of can still have huge success with digital marketing. The secret is to market your product with the keywords your dream customers are searching for and in the social audiences that match. Then designing an ad and landing page that identifies their problem and positions your product as the best solution for them.

We’ll use consistent branding in all ads to create brand awareness while driving paying customers at the same time.  So while other customer acquisition agencies can damage your brand with blackhat tactics, ours increases awareness, creates more loyal customers and boosts customer satisfaction rates.

What customer acquisition channels work best?

There is a time and place for all customer acquisition channels. For example, Pinterest Ads do well for weddings, furniture, and beauty products. Facebook is best for new product categories. SEO is effective for sites with a lot of content and a longer timeline for results. Paid Search Marketing works almost all the time.

Our strategists work with you to build customer acquisition strategies right for your brand and product for more potential customers.

My last customer acquisition agency couldn’t get results, how will you?

Customer acquisition companies can be ineffective for a number of reasons. Most commonly, they don’t fully the funnel and how to build a complete digital marketing strategy. They may be skilled in Google Ads but have no experience with conversion rate optimization, A/B testing, web analytics, or sales copywriting… leaving them unable to put all the pieces together and drive business online. If your previous lead generation or digital marketing agency created an ad account or SEO program for you, we also offer to audit it for free to better understand the gaps.

What is a customer acquisition strategy?

A customer acquisition strategy is a plan or set of tactics designed to attract and convert potential customers into paying clients for a business. It encompasses various marketing and advertising approaches to generate leads and nurture them through a customer acquisition funnel until they make a purchase.

The benefits include:

  1. Increased Revenue: An effective customer acquisition strategy helps bring in new customers, leading to increased sales and revenue for your business.

  5. Customer Loyalty: A well-planned strategy not only attracts new customers but also helps in retaining them by providing a positive experience from the start.

  6. Competitive Advantage: It sets you apart from competitors who may not have as strong or well-defined customer acquisition strategies.

  7. Customer Data Insights: Customer acquisition efforts generate valuable data and market research that can be used to refine your marketing tactics and improve your overall business strategy.

  8. Scalability: A good strategy can be scaled to accommodate business growth, allowing you to adapt as your customer base expands.

  9. Measurable Results: Customer acquisition strategies can be tracked and measured, allowing you to assess their effectiveness and make data-driven improvements.

Customer acquisition agencies managing paid ads, social media, and SEO can contribute to this.
