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 to:

  • Implement Google Analytics and know how it works
    We'll look at how Google's cookies work, and how they send information to Google Analytics about your site
  • Set up Goals and Funnels within Analytics
    We'll walk you through how you can set up your Analytics to know when users have completed your goals (buy something, register, get in touch etc.), giving you insight into what makes users convert
  • Understand what Analytics is telling you
    Analytics breaks all its information down into Dimensions and Metrics and you'll learn how to interpret the information Google is giving you to get real insights for your business
  • Create dashboards and standard reports
    We'll teach you to create visual reports and dashboards to satisfy managers' strategic demands for metrics, showing which marketing channels are working, whether recent campaigns have been effective and what content your users are responding to.
  • Track the microinteractions taking place
    We'll teach you to track smaller Events effectively (PDF downloads, newsletter signups, form completions etc.) to get a better idea of what features help 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.
