Google Analytics training

Harnessing the power of Google Analytics

Google Analytics can provide valuable insights into how people interact with your website and business. Our course will teach you to see how your site is being used, as well as how it can be improved to provide your users with a better experience.

During the training course you'll learn

  • How Google Analytics works and how to implement it - This involves looking at how Google's cookies work, and how they can send information to Google Analytics about your site.
  • How to set up Goals and Funnels within Analytics to help you track user behaviour - Every business has a Goal in mind that it wants its website users to accomplish (whether that's to buy something, to register, or to get in touch). We'll walk you through how you can set up your Analytics to know when users have completed your goals. This will also give you insight into what makes your users convert.
  • How to understand what information Analytics is telling you - Analytics breaks all its information down into Dimensions and Metrics. You'll learn how to interpret the information Google is giving you to get real insights for your business.
  • How to create dashboards and standard reports - Nearly everyone will need to provide reports from Analytics, giving stakeholders information on what marketing channels are working, whether recent campaigns have been effective, and what content your users are responding to. We'll teach you to create visual reports and dashboards to satisfy higher management's strategic demands for metrics.
  • How to track the micro interactions that take place on your website - Before completing your website Goals, your users will likely interact with your site in many smaller ways (downloading pdfs, signing up to newsletters, or filling in contact forms with questions). We'll teach you to track these smaller Events effectively to get a better idea of what features on your website help your users to convert.

You'll login to your own GA account during the course so you can get insights straightaway. If you don't have access then we can provide you with an account to work with.
