The analytics renaissance - The approaches for making your website work harder is going through somewhat of a renaissance. In a world where we are awash with data, collating interesting statistics about your web's performance is pretty routine and one dimensional at best. The perfect web strategy relies on so much more: it's not just about what has happened but what is possible. It is where analytics ends and insight begins.

    If you have improved, analytics can’t tell you why and how to repeat this.
    KPIs give a general indicationbut not necessarily insight.
    We need to be smart
  • There are plenty of meaningless data available, so it’s critical to strategically plan your approach to analytics and to insight at the outset before you starting actually doing it.
  • more tables, graphs or metrics
    or do you need a better visual understanding.
  • We first we need to understand what the constituent parts of success
  • So to achieve success, what do we need to track and measure?
    Which sources provide good visitors?
    Which sources provide most revenue?
    What is my ROI on each channel?
    Are there channels I didn’t know about?
    What experience are they having?
    How are they navigating?
    What are they seeing?
    Where are they clicking?
    What are they reading?
    Which content influences them?
    What content should you create?
    How does this differ on mobile?
    How does this differ for each audience?
    The cross between where data as a science meets creativity
  • 49% of people are changing their content weekly
  • People track offsite content, but not online. And this part of our mission.
    significant opportunities lost in time, resource, spend and revenue
    if you do, you’re smart.
  • Once you’ve worked out what you would like to find out then, then you need to decide whether you have the tools you need? I hope you'
  • In our opinion, traditional analytics such as google, are brilliant at reporting metrics but no so good at providing insight that can be used to action changes.
  • Understanding…
  • this is not about getting rid of free analytics tools but to understand the limitations and the data that is really useful to impact performance
