Why Google Analytics?
Imagine going to the grocery store to buy the week's groceries. You know your budget is $100 and you have a ton of stuff on your list to buy. You are going to have to be careful here or you'll run out of money and miss out on getting a ton of stuff you want. Here's the bad news, you went to a store that doesn't list any prices on the food. You are just going to have to guess your way through this...
All too often, this is the way digital marketers spend their hard earned budget on their marketing efforts. But it doesn't have to be this way! Google Analytics can ferry you away from that horrible situation and provide real world information that will not only help you decide how your current digital marketing efforts are working (critically assisting in tracking lead generation), but also how to create new and improved strategies based on your previous efforts. By using Analytics and understanding its full capabilities, your marketing team will not go hungry, because you will be able to prove definitively how valuable your digital marketing efforts are towards your company's bottom line.
Why This Series?
This 10-week Google Analytics Series is a joint effort brought to you by the Indy AMA and the B2B Marketers of Indiana and will be led by Jennifer Denney, a Google Certified Specialist and long term digital marketing professional. During this series you will learn to set up and truly analyze the results of your Google Analytics data. The end result of finishing this series is for you to not only leave Google Analytics certified but to make sense of the numbers that make up your own website's data and create truly actionable takeaways.
If you are already a member of either the Indy AMA or the B2B Marketers of Indiana, we have a special treat for you - a 40% savings on the full cost of the series! If you are not a member, you may also sign up for both the series or individual sessions (though we highly recommend signing up for the entire series in order to get the most out of it).
We expect this event to sell out and only 25 seats will be sold per course!
This will be a 10-week course in which Google Analytics will be taught in great depth. This will be hands on with your own data as well as data for demonstration purposes. We will leave time at the end of every class to work on anyone's specific analytics accounts.
Site Strategics will serve as our event sponsor and host, offering the use of their learning classroom with plenty of monitors to follow along.
Goals and Learning Environment
This course is meant to be interactive and a learning environment. There is no question that is a dumb question when it comes to Analytics. The goal of the course will to be for each attendee to pass the Google Analytics exam that will be taken on the last course day. It is not guaranteed that each person will pass, but this course will prepare you. You may sign up for courses a la carte, but we are offering a discount for signing up for the entire series!
