DartMedia will help! Our team of electronic marketing consultants is ready to assist you with Google Analytics. Read on for more details of how we will help or call us to schedule a consultancy session.

Audit & Validation

Is my Google Analytics Configured Correctly?
Our clients ask us, “What is involved in validating my Google Analytics implementation and how much is it going to cost me?” We’d love to give a direct answer, but in most cases, we can’t - it would actually be a disservice to give you an answer that wasn’t meaningful and unique to your needs. We offer a comprehensive customized audit & we always take into consideration your target markets, audience, budget and business objectives then structure the implementation to identify and track your key metrics.

Implementation and Support Services

It’s easy to set up a Google Analytics account - just sign up and add the tracking code to your website! It is really that simple. But without a trained specialist, you could end up with unrecoverable data inaccuracies, reviewing inflated reports, capturing incomplete data, mixing paid and non-paid search engine traffic, and missing out on the wide array of benefits that the tool provides.

As GAAC’s (Google Authorized Analytics Consultants), DartMedia will make sure you’re using each of Google’s valuable tools to their highest potential and benefit to
you, so you’re analyzing exactly what is happening to your website, not confusing data.

Implementation Best Practices

So, what are the best practices for a GA implementation? Review, and if necessary redefine the purpose of your website.

  • In order to accurately implement & track meaningful analytics data, goals need to be identified & analyzed. You cannot identify website goals if there is no clear purpose for your website.
  • Install the most up-to-date version of Google Analytics Tracking Code (GATC) correctly & in the correct location.
  • Configure the Google Analytics Tool in the most effective way based on your business & technical set-up.
  • Tag external links.

We’ll help you determine the optimal configuration & make sure you know how to make changes in the future. Our goal is to make sure your set-up is correct to start with and you spend your time improving your ROI.

Support Services

You have completed your implementation and are confident of the accuracy of your analytics data, but you can’t segment your data the way your stakeholders are expecting to see it. You have a flash movie you want to track, or you want to filter out your own internal traffic and are not sure how.

Our Google Analytics specialists will work closely with your team to support your technical and analytical needs, whether it is basic tag implementation, custom code, or Google analytics tool configuration.

Consulting and Business Analytics

Guiding You Through the Maze of Metrics

“What do I do with all this data?”

“Which Google Analytics eCommerce report should I review and send to my manager?”

“Which Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) should I track and trend for my B2B Lead Generation site?”

“I hear ‘Actionable Insight’ but I can’t figure out how to get the insights?”

“I need help in creating a measurement-based culture within my organization.”

These are typical challenges marketing managers and business stakeholders struggle with all the time. Engage our analytics and marketing consultants to help you answer and solve these challenges. We guide you through the maze of available metrics + reports by guiding you with Best Practices

We help you identify the Top 10 reports most relevant to your organization and your marketing goals. Your own unique report set will serve as the foundation for analysis, proactive problem detection, highlight successes and areas of improvement.

Segments, Filters, Pivots, and Secondary Dimensions

What?!?! All of these enterprise features and functionality wrapped up into one cool tool? Yes! These features help us perform deep dive analysis!

  • Segment the Data: On the Fly, predefined, or newly created segments allow for robust comparison of data subsets.
  • Filter: Remove the stuff that is collected but doesn’t provide insight or zoom in on what matters to you most
  • Pivots & Secondary Dimensions: Diving deep into cross-tabular analysis on one table instead of running multiple reports, saves times!

Executive Dashboard and ROI

Act on Findings - People and Process

  • Ensure your staff is up to date on goals, monthly reports & key metrics. Making sure your team members are informed and trained is just as important as defining your key metrics! Establish a internal process to make measurements and analytics integral to your organization.
