Marketers’ Secret Weapon – Google Analytics

Posted on: June 28th, 2012

If you own a car, you know that it requires a tremendous amount of upkeep. Forgetting to change the oil or rotate the tires could cause serious engine failure. But much like a car, don’t you think your website should be regularly serviced? In fact, when was the last time you checked under your website’s hood?  

Here at Appleton Creative we are professionally trained to diagnose your concerns. A common tool we use to track our client’s websites is Google Analytics. This service is used to interpret detailed statistics about visitors to a website. According to Mashable, around 55% of the 10,000 most popular websites use Google Analytics to manage their online marketing strategy.

Why Should you Track Analytics?

Whether you are a small business or a huge corporation, having an online presence helps consumers build confidence in your brand. But what’s the point of having a website if your audience can’t find you? Below, we list Google Analytics’ top features.

  • Gather information about your customers (geographical location, language, and how long and often they visit)
  • Show where your traffic is coming from
  • Track which keywords are bringing people to your site
  • See what content people are most interested in
  • Analyze how customers interact with your site on their mobile device
