As a business, you must be running a lot of SEO and online promotional campaigns for your business either yourself or through agencies and you will be scanning through a lot of reports coming up at the end of every month using Google Analytics, which is the most widely used analytics tool to see user behavior. Right?
If so, in this video I’m going to tell you three important metrics that you must see as a business owner to ensure that your campaigns are moving in the right direction.
Now relevancy is most important. You do not want junk traffic on your website, because that is going to add to your effort and cost and that’s going to reduce your ROI.
Therefore the campaign has to move towards attracting relevant traffic only.
Hence using Google Analytics you can track for relevancy using
What sources the traffic is coming from? What keywords coming from? What devices they’re coming in from? What locations are coming in from? And try to map your business case with this data.
Are you targeting any specific location? Are you targeting a specific set of customers with a demographic?
Please carefully understands and define the relevancy. Once the relevancy is defined then you can clearly see that your campaign is started off well and moving in the right direction.
Once how relevant traffic coming to a website, it is so important to keep them engaged.
Because now you have a potential customer coming in to check your website. It should be able to address his queries his questions, solutions that he is seeking for him.
Because if he doesn’t find them he’s going to walk away.
Therefore your website should be organized in such a way that holds him, it addresses his queries or gives him a chance to interact with you, by filling in some form, or having a live chat or having an email option or a phone call.
Using Google Analytics you can check out
• A bounce rate of visitors
• Time spent by a user on your website
• How many pages he has seen?
• What kind of click follow he has achieved?
• Very specific sections of the website that he has visited
• On what pages he is spending the most time? Or on what pages he is moving on quickly.
All this is so important information to make those important tweaks and findings to your content when engaging and interacting with your customer.
Now you have RELEVANT TRAFFIC, you have ENGAGED THEM.
Now you want to qualify them as a lead. Now your website should have clearly defined
As sections that determine an entry visitor into a qualified lead.
For example, if he does a website and lands up filling up the questionnaire that you have on some page, it will be termed as a qualified lead Or if he browse us through 3 pages that you have to define him to go through & then connect with you through email that would be a qualified lead.
So if those flows are established as qualified leads you will have facilities in Google Analytics to track that and then based on that you can clearly determine the kind of traffic that’s coming in and the kind of traffic that is getting qualified as leads. Isn’t that powerful? You can either learn this yourself or you can hire an agency or freelancer to help you understand this. Make sure you do this every month and keep on improving, keep on tweaking, keep on fine tuning those goals so that your entry level in traffic to your qualification ratio always keeps on improving. Isn’t that powerful?
So these were my three inputs for you as a business owner to look at Google Analytics as a relevant traffic generator, an Engager & Lead qualifier tool.
