Web Analytics BootCamp

Why should I take this 3-day intensive?

Understanding web behavior is important to ensure a good user experience and maximum the conversion rate of visitors to customers. There is an abundance of web data out there.  Knowing what is important and what is not is critical to you being productive and affective. Not understanding what is happening under the hood of Google Analytics will not allow you to be as effective as you can be. 

Some of the biggest mistakes people make when using Google Analytics include:

  • Looking at data only in aggregate
  • Not segmenting
  • Forgetting to filter out internal IP addresses
  • Looking for patterns that do not exist and based on too little data
  • Not tagging your social media links with UTM tags for tracking purposes.
  • Not using a single GA tracking ID to follow your complete funnel from content to conversion

And, of course we could continue for many more pages!
