How to Stop Guessing in Your Marketing and Start Making More Money in Less Time
Unknown to most business owners and even some marketing professionals, the world of web analytics or website analysis is the hidden 'glue' that provides remarkable insights into your business.
Up until recently, measuring the precise ROI of your marketing efforts has been a bit of a hit-and-miss operation.
In the "offline" world like a newspaper, radio or TV ad, it's fairly tricky to get any real measurable and meaningful feedback (unless you are following strict direct-response protocols).
In business, most of the time we think of marketing as advertising.
But since the web arrived on the scene, things have changed. Because for the first time in history, you can measure a vast array of performance indicators leading to rapid insights about what's really working and what's not.
To be more precise, web analytics not only allows you to measure the performance of your advertising, it can also tell exactly what impact your website is having on generating leads and sales.
And you can also measure the performance of your social media and email campaigns.
It provides you with extremely useful data about the behaviour of your visitors to your website and helps you figure out what works and what doesn't.
At Conversion Makers, we're huge fans of web analytics because we know it helps our customers make superior business decisions.
Our main tool is Google Analytics: it's a free service provided by Google and which is directly connected to your website (and if you don't have it installed, please get in touch and we'll help you get it setup correctly).
And whilst Google Analytics is very good at the "quantitative" part, it's not the complete picture because it's not so easy to understand why people do what they do on your website.
Which is why we also turn to "qualitative" analytic tools which provides us with valuable insights into how your visitors behave on your website.
These qualitative tools provide us with sophisticated analyses such as 'heat' and 'click' maps which helps us understand the "why" component.
Although these tools are very powerful, the real value in Web Analytics is interpreting the information correctly, gain insights so that we can take action to improve results.
Just so you get a feel of what lies behind Web Analytics, here are a couple of sample reports:
Benefits of Web Analytics
With web analytics, your company can benefit from a significant competitive advantage. Just have a look at some of the things you will discover:
- Which messages and content provides greater interest to your customers and therefore, discover what will generate more profitable results.

- Which sources of traffic arrives to your website and which ones provide the highest returns on investment and probabilities of providing qualified leads.
- Which sectors or segments of your visitors convert the best
