Online Marketing: Online Feedback and Measuring Online Success - Queanbeyan


Published on

One advantage online marketing provides is the ability to measure the performance of your website and marketing campaigns. Collecting website statistics is important but must be in the context of what you are trying to do, e.g. site traffic does not necessarily equal success. This workshop covered the basics on how to capture website and social media statistics and what they can tell you to inform future campaigns and online improvements.

Online feedback is another great avenue to evaluate your business both on and offline. This workshop explained to participants how to set up channels to support and encourage open online customer service and provided tips to respond to good and bad feedback through tools such as Trip Advisor and Facebook.

This session is part of the Capital Region Digital Enterprise program. For more information visit
