Our Goal

Web analytics is one of the necessities of digital marketing. You use analytics to get data so you can make decisions in your digital marketing campaigns (SEO, PPC, social media, analytics, email, and so on) to increase leads, sales, and ROI. The course includes lecture to cover the menus and options, followed with hands-on walk-through of Google Analytics (and you can review the presentations again to make sure you get all of the details).

What You’ll Learn

In the Fundamentals session, we learned how to install and configure Google Analytics. By now, it should be producing good, clean data for you.

In the Intermediate session, we will go through the first two major report sections of Google Analytics. This covers Audience and Acquisition.

We will cover the first two major sections of Google Analytics:

  • Audience: Who is visiting your website? You will see how to find the demographics of your visitors: age, sex, and interests. You will also see where they are (location) and what languages they are using. We also look at whether they are using desktop browsers or mobile browsers to visit your site.
  • Acquisition: How did those visitors find your website? This gives you specific details on how they came to your website: search engines (and which ones), social media, direct, or referral from another website.
  • You’ll also learn how to segment analytics data so you can separate the strands of data. For example, you can separate and compare the traffic by desktop versus mobile users.

By knowing your visitors, you can make changes to your website that will appeal to your audience. You will also know where to focus your marketing effort. If your audience is arriving via search engines, then you can do more with search engines. But if they are coming via social media, you can put your efforts there. Analytics gives you understanding of your audience.

This helps you in internal meetings that discuss where to allocate budget and staff. Should the website be translated to French? Is there a market in Mexico? Should your website be designed for desktop users or mobile users? All of this, and many more questions, can be definitely be settled with analytics data.

We will go through the Audience and Acquisitions reports, menu by menu, and then a live walk-through of the data so you can see how to find information.

There will be lots of opportunity for your questions.

Key Takeaways

  • You’ll understand how to use Google Analytics to quickly understand your website’s audience
  • You’ll know your audience’s age, sex, location, languages, devices (desktop, mobile), interests, and much more
  • You can use this to choose better ads, content, and images for your marketing, including SEO, Google Adwords, email newsletters, social media, and so on

Bonus Material

  • You can listen to the complete presentation with audio as often as you like

Three-Part Course on Google Analytics

This is the second course of the three-part course for Google Analytics. You can continue with the Advanced session, which covers the last two major reports in Google Analytics: Behavior and Conversions.

Who Is the Course for?

  • Senior staff, managers, and directors who are responsible for digital marketing

  • Agencies can improve their Google Analytics services to clients

Part 3: Google Analytics Advanced

Individual workshops $250 each, Now $200 each. Enroll here for Google Analytics Advanced only.

Special Series Pricing: All three Google Analytics workshops for $750 $425. Enroll here.

This is part three of the three-part series on Google Analytics, led by Andreas Ramos.

Our Goal

Web analytics is one of the necessities of digital marketing. You use analytics to get data so you can make decisions in your digital marketing campaigns (SEO, PPC, social media, analytics, email, and so on) to increase leads, sales, and ROI. The course includes lecture to cover the menus and options, followed with hands-on walk-through of Google Analytics (and you can review the presentations again to make sure you get all of the details).

What You’ll Learn

In the Fundamentals session, we learned how to install and configure Google Analytics. By now, it should be producing good, clean data for you.

In the Intermediate session, we went through the first two major report sections of Google Analytics: Audience and Acquisition.

In the Advanced session, the third and final session, we cover the Behavior and Conversions reports, menu by menu, and then a live walk-through of the data so you can see how to use these.

  • Behavior: What are your visitors doing at your website? Now that we know all about them and how they came to your website, let’s look at what they’re doing at the website. Which pages are they looking at? What is the bounce rate? By knowing which pages attract visitors, you can get more visitors by improving those pages. Bounce rate is one of the key metrics for a website: it shows whether visitors think your webpage is interesting or boring. When you make changes to the page, the data quickly shows you if the changes were good or bad. You can optimize a page and get more visitors and conversions without additional marketing, just by keeping the traffic that you already get.
  • Conversions: The fourth and final report in analytics covers conversions. Conversions can be downloads, registrations, signups, visits to specific pages, and sales. Analytics shows you the visitors are buying or registering at your website. By knowing that, you can focus your efforts to find more of those visitors. You’ll see how to install conversion tracking. The conversion funnel shows you each step of your visitors’ path to conversion and where they are exiting the path. By knowing that, you can improve the path to get more sales. The cool thing about analytics is that you don’t have to be an expert at marketing: you just look at the data, see where there are problems, and then make changes and see which ones improve the results.
  • We’ll close with notes about the reality of using Google Analytics at companies
  • There will be lots of opportunity for your questions.

Key Takeaways

  • The Behavior report is practical information: you can use this to make changes to your website. You quickly see if the change was good or bad so you can make further changes. Instead of doing SEO work on 500 pages, you can fix the ten to fifteen most important pages. By improving the bounce rate for a page, you’ll have more visitors. In addition, the better the bounce rate, the higher the page will show up in Google.
  • The Conversion report also gives you practical, immediate information. You can see if a page in your conversion path is leaking too many users. By fixing that page to get the users to go to the next step in the conversion path, you can increase conversions without additional marketing. You’ll also see how to set up conversion tracking and visualize the data with a conversion funnel. This is very useful with clients and decision-makers.

Bonus Material

  • You can listen to the complete presentation with audio as often as you like
