A half-day 1-2-1 Google Analytics training workshop and course

Google Analytics is a website measurement and optimisation tool freely available online from Google. Organisations both large and small around the world use it to improve their online presence and drive efficiencies in their online marketing spend. Google Analytics can inform you on how engaged your visitors are with your website and from understanding the measurements in its reporting, you can then devise strategies to help generate more leads and convert more customers. To set up Google Analytics, you need to create a free account. Next, from within your account you need to obtain a small snippet of tracking code and ensure it is included in the HTML code of your website pages. Instead of inserting tracking code, an easy option now available for many websites is an appending of a tracking ID (a single string of letters and numbers), again available from within your Google Analytics setup. This bypasses the need to manually add the tracking code to each page. If you’d like to track events like downloading a PDF, this requires more work in the form of a custom piece of code which needs to be added to the HTML of your site. To do this, you can use Google Tag Manager – a free tool run by Google. To track what’s happening to your products on your site, the e-commerce tracking option must be enabled in Google Analytics and further coding script must be generated in Google Tag Manager and added to the relevant area of your website. (e-commerce tracking is a more advanced topic, however some discussion around it will be featured in the below course).

This half-day course will introduce the key features of the Google Analytics dashboard and reports. The aim is to equip the learner with the know-how to interrogate Google Analytics for reporting purposes to help you get the best performance from your website and in turn help you come up with better online marketing strategies to promote your brand online to drive leads and sales. There will be a discussion around the more advanced topics. We will be hands-on, using live data to demonstrate. Google Analytics training course materials will also be provided. There will be a short breaks as you need.
