Webinar #6 – How to Get Better Insights in Less Time With Google Analytics

So you’ve just logged into your Google Analytics profile. And you start looking around. You see that you’ve had 1,241 visitors this month and 3,292 pageviews. That’s cool. Let’s hop on over to the traffic sources.

Organic search from Google sent you a couple hundred visits. So did Facebook. Looks like the organic search has a 2.54 pages/visit and a 53% bounce rate. Facebook had 1.89 pages/visit and a 48% bounce rate. The rest of the traffic is split over a bunch of random blogs and social media sites.

But how has this data helped you? I’m not asking if it’s interesting. Of course it’s interesting, that’s why we’re all addicted to looking at it. The real question is: How has this data helped you build a better business this month? Or any of the last 6 months?

We’re in the 28th week of the year. So if you spend at least an hour in Google Analytics each week, that’s quite a bit of time you’ve spent for data that’s merely interesting.

The issue here is that we keep looking at vanity metrics. They make us feel good but they don’t help us build a better business.

What we need is actionable metrics. And I’m going to show you where to find them in Google Analytics.

Right here, right now, I’m going to make 3 promises to you. By the end of this webinar, you will know:

ONE: The 2 most critical things you need to set up in Google Analytics right now (and I’m going to give you step-by-step instructions too).

TWO: The 4 reports that give you the best actionable data in the least amount of time.

THREE: Where the data gets inconsistent so you don’t get blindsided later on.

Sign up for this webinar to learn how to get free data from Google Analytics that actually helps you build a better business.

One of the 2 things we absolutely need to set up might just be goals… but shhh! You didn’t hear that from me!

  5. Another great webinar. I have always used Statcounter and GWT to study all of the data for all of the sites that I have owned, but may have to give Google Analytics a try. Have always held back as it was quite sluggish when I initially used it, but the data does look impressive. Cheers.
