Google Analytics is the de facto, ultimate web analytics tool. It likely does much more than you might think it can do.

I gave this presentation to my Business Analytics colleagues at Perficient on 3/27/13. I found it to be a highly interactive, engaging conversation that gave a powerful introduction to what Google Analytics can do, without wandering too deeply into the weeds.

This presentation covers Google Analytics in broad strokes. It is designed to be intuitive and easily understood by all audiences, especially for business leaders.
