Maximise the potential of your website
Google Analytics is a powerful tool that can help you understand and then optimise your websites performance. It can give you valuable insights into how your users behave.
Here are 3 important reasons why you should be using Google Analytics for your online business.
You can discover the source of your website traffic
Google Analytics can tell you how a visitor found your website. Did they come to you directly, through a search engine, from a social media post or a paid ad? All this information is readily available. This data is vital to help you understand your users. If you are putting a lot of effort into social media posts, are they paying off? Could you write more original content to help users find you on search engines?
You can track user behaviour
So, it’s great to know how people got to your website but what do they do once they get there? A lot of people want to be top of Google or focus just on the number of visitors but what you really want are quality visitors. If a large number of people come to your website and immediately leave that could be a problem. You want users to be engaged with your website, look around, find what they are looking for and hopefully contact you to find out more.
Google analytics can track user behaviour, from which pages they visited to how long they stayed. This data can help you tweak your website to aid the visitor experience. Maybe you need more Calls To Action or the flow if the website needs to be refined.
You can monitor user conversions
Websites have different purposes. For some businesses the ultimate aim is for the user to fill out a contact form or it could be to click on an email address. Google Analytics allows you to track how users complete these conversions. You can also see what traffic sources provide the most conversions allowing you to see which channel provides quality visitors. This information can help you better plan your marketing.
