Breakout Session: Reporting vs Analysis: How to Gain Real Insights from Google Analytics
Watch Dana’s session:
Prove that you matter.
It’s likely that you have been given a report that did more to confuse you than assure you. You’ve probably delivered a report that was just as bad.
It’s tough to admit, but generally speaking, we’ve all been terrible at reporting.
This session sympathizes with those times you’ve had to fight tooth and nail to justify what you are doing or want to do for your boss or client, simply because you couldn’t prove anything with your reporting. When reports don’t provide concrete insights and direction they do more harm than good.
They make each of us look worse because our bad reports make it hard to build trust. We need to do better.
You’ll learn how to:
- Tell the difference between monitoring and reporting.
- Set goals and decide how to track progress and metrics before projects start.
- Build reports that your boss or clients are excited to get.
