Thousands of firms are waking up to the benefits of sending their staff for Google Analytics training
In the current economic climate, many firms have cut back on things like training. They simply cannot afford to send their staff for training even when in the long-term their business will benefit. Their cash flow problems mean that many firms dare not spend money investing in their staff. However, despite this general downward trend many firms are still investing in Google Analytics training.
The reasons behind this decision are many and varied, but the main reason is that this kind of training provides almost instant financial benefits. The fact that trainees can use their new knowledge from day one to save their companies big sums of money on their on-line marketing campaigns makes it very easy to cost justify this kind of training.
The cost of training is quickly re-cooped by the fact someone trained to use Google Analytics can easily work out which online marketing campaigns are working and which are not. This can prevent a firm from wasting hundreds or thousands of pounds on marketing that is not effective. By focusing on what works, firms can draw in many more customers who are ready to buy and, therefore, sell a lot more products.
Those firms that harness the power of Google Analytics are the ones with the best websites. Using the free data Google provides about where visitors have come from, which pages of a site they visit, and where they go from there, firms can significantly improve their website. They can hone their site so it draws people in and takes them on a short journey that motivates them to actually buy the products and services on offer.
Going it alone or Google Analytics training
However, because a Google Analytics account is free not all firms understand the need for training. That is until they begin using the data. At that point, most firms find the amount of data available overwhelming. They do not really know which data is actually valuable and applicable to their business, so many simply give up. ivantage have been providing Google Analytics training for years and they make working out which data is relevant and useful to a business one of the first lessons.
