WHAT THE HECK IS GOOGLE ANALYTICS?
How to Use This Free Web Service to Sell More Books
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, 2015
Ever wonder if your website is working for you and how to improve it? At our June PALA meeting, digital marketing expert Adam Singer will explain the ins and outs of the free website analytics service called Google Analytics. You’ll see how it can help you start making better book marketing decisions.
- Whether your website template is accomplishing what you want it to do
- Where your website visitors are coming from
- What pages people visit, the length of their stay, and the route they take to leave the site
- The best and worst web copy on your site
- Other activity on your site, such as watching videos or downloading files
- What content of yours is being shared the most on social media
- Which social media channels make the most sense for you
In addition, Singer will discuss the reports that are available for you, which ones make the most sense as a publisher or an author, as well as how to begin analyzing them.
