Get started with analytics

Analytics can help you better understand your customers and support your digital marketing strategy. This course will help you to apply data-driven thinking to your business.

In this session you will learn:

  • The ways that data analytics can help your business strategy

Compare and share your analytics goals

Participants will be split into small groups to discuss their organisations’ goals for their website and which types of analytics tracking they do to frame and reach those goals.

With facilitation by the Digital Culture Network and Google teams, you will have the opportunity to connect with your peers through sharing experiences, knowledge and ideas.
