About This Class

Everyone wants to grow their business and make their websites successful. But how do you know if you are making progress to your goals? And how do you know what marketing activities are the most efficient and cost effective to pursue?

That is the job of analytics and Google Analytics in particular. Without analytics, strategies, goals and marketing are empty.

This class is perfect for marketing strategists looking to improve the performance of their websites.

You’ll get to know the basics of using Google Analytics to track and evaluate performance and draw insights to improve your business. Starting with basic terminology and key metrics, you’ll build a foundation of knowledge before diving deeper into more complex analytics techniques, including advertising tracking and custom segments. You’ll walk away with a fundamental understanding of Google Analytics’ role in running and operating your business.
