Data is king. But with so much information available, how can you make sense of it all? Enter Google Analytics—a powerful tool that, when used correctly, can transform your website into a data-driven powerhouse.

We understand that smaller businesses often don't have the luxury of time to delve deep into the intricacies of Google Analytics. That’s why we're here to help you unlock its full potential. Imagine gaining crystal-clear insights into your website traffic, understanding your audience better than ever before, and making informed decisions that drive your business forward.

1. Traffic Acquisition

One of the most popular and important reports in Google Analytics is the Traffic Acquisition report. Many marketers are familiar with the basic traffic source report, but diving deeper into detailed reports can reveal much more about your marketing activities, such as email, social media, and partnerships.

By using Analytics to its full potential, you can uncover key insights like:

  • Which social platforms are most effective in driving traffic and interest to your website?

  • Which of your partners are referring the most engaged users?

  • What keywords are users searching for when they find your website?

  • Which of your email campaigns are generating the most interest?

2. Demographic Breakdown

In addition to understanding where your website traffic originates (Google, social media, etc.), Analytics provides valuable demographic information about the users accessing your site. Initially, Analytics can tell you detailed information about user location, preferred language, and the type of devices they use to access your website.

By enabling Google Signals, Google Analytics can provide further insights such as:

  • Gender

  • Age

  • Interests

3. Most Popular Pages

Understanding which content your audience is most interested in will allow you to create more relevant and engaging content for them to consume. Using Analytics' most viewed pages report, you can see which areas of your website users are accessing the most and where they are spending the most time. The average time on page metric helps you identify which pages are most engaging for your audience.

4. Underperforming Pages

Google Analytics is crucial for identifying underperforming pages on your website. These could be pages with a high bounce rate, low average time on page, or a high exit percentage. While Analytics can't tell you exactly why these pages are underperforming, it provides key indicators that something may be wrong. We recommend checking:

  • Is the page broken?

  • Is the content engaging enough?

  • Are the titles clear and relevant?

  • Does the page include images, videos, or rich media?

  • Is the content too long or too short?

5. Conversions & Form Submissions

One of the most important functions of a website is generating leads or interest in your business through form submissions. Google Analytics conversion tracking provides detailed breakdowns of who, when, and why users are completing inquiry and other forms on your website. This is especially useful for making decisions about digital marketing channels and attributing lead information.

Creating Goals and Conversion events that align with your digital and business goals is crucial for maintaining a successful website and marketing strategy.

6. Ecommerce Tracking

Building on conversion tracking, Google Analytics can also track transactions via your website. By using a combination of Google Analytics, Tag Manager, and Google Data Layer, you can report on the number of transactions, source of transactions, new vs. returning customers, and the types of products or donations. If you use paid advertising, the ability to attribute transactions back to the source is crucial for understanding your ROAS (return on ad spend) and other key metrics.

For implementing donation/eCommerce tracking, we recommend using a web developer to help set up and understand the Google Data Layer.

If used correctly, Google Analytics 4 can be an extremely powerful tool for your business. The key to success with Google Analytics is:

  • Understanding your key strategic aims

  • Implementing custom reports and tracking to measure these aims

  • Analyzing the data to make informed decisions about your marketing strategy
