Unleash the power of Google Analytics for actionable insights to improve your website.

Google Analytics is a very powerful platform to gain insight into your website visitors, how they got there and what they did. This data can be used to improve your website, helping you to retain visitors and improve their conversion rate, ultimately generating more business from your website.

By joining this two-part workshop we’ll explore the main reports in Google Analytics, explaining what they mean and how to use them, as well as working through how to set it up and the options required to get the most from your data.

Who should attend this workshop?

This workshop is for anyone who is responsible for managing a business website or for digital marketing in their company. It is aimed at beginner to intermediate users.

Please note that this workshop is open to trading SMEs based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Businesses located outside of this area will be unable to attend and instead directed to alternative support.

What will we cover?

  • Setting up Google Analytics including page tagging, Goals, ecommerce tracking, site search and event tracking so that you can measure conversions from sales to file downloads
