Google Analytics for Charities


Published on

This webinar gives you an overview of Analytics, useful for any non-profit worker with responsibility for their website.

How successfully does your charity's website reach its intended audience? How well are you engaging with people online? What does and doesn't work on your website? How can you tell where your website's visitors are coming from or if they're viewing your website on a mobile device? The free Google Analytics tool provides a wealth of data that you can use to evaluate your success online, and help you make decisions to improve the reach of your website.
