Why You Need to Understand Web Analytics
Have you ever had an employee that just couldn't do their job to their fullest potential? They had all the credentials, yet their performance just didn't measure up to your expectations? You couldn't figure out why, and attempts at helping the employee would just miss the mark?
When this "employee" is really your website, big problems can arise. A website that does not know how to engage its visitors and do the job you gave it is a waste of time and money for everybody, even customers.
Don't try new things until you fix the old ones
Marketing consultants and online services try to pitch new ideas like using social media or buying ad space to boost traffic and conversions, but those are just more "spokes" that drive traffic to an under-performing "hub" of a website.
The real key to successful website changes lies in analyzing the traffic already coming to you. Your website is logging every detail of every visitor on every page, and by diving into this pool of data you can pinpoint the failures and fix them. Even if you've never looked at a traffic report before, a few simple questions about strategy and goals can guide you through to the right information.
