Why do you need to know the data from your website?
The sheer amount of data you collect from your website analytics can be overwhelming but if you want to improve your online sales you need to understand what all the numbers mean. Being able to read and understand your website traffic, new visitors, traffic sources, customer journey etc is vital if you want to improve your customer experience and ultimately increase online sales.
The information you get will give you indications of how you can improve your website to increase visitor rate and sales such as redesigning your homepage to make it more user friendly or ensuring it’s mobile friendly if it appears most of your visitors are using a mobile device.
How does it help with each marketing channel?
The information you get from your website analytics data will give you great insight into where your visitors are coming from such as an organic search using a search engine, paid search (Google Ads etc), referral from blogs, social media or email. You’ll be able to see the biggest drivers of website traffic and it will also tell you which channels you need to focus on to see improved traffic flow.
In order to get a real understanding of the numbers you need to look at each marketing channel's analytics as well as your website analytics. Understanding how well a certain email campaign has performed compared with a blog or social media post can help you see where you need to focus your attention.
How can you find out this information?
It’s really important that you use all the analytics tools available and measure everything you do. Focus on one marketing channel at a time, really get to understand it and build on this. Make it manageable for you and your business - if you find it tricky to get your head around or you lack the time and patience, get support from your web designer.
Understanding your numbers
If 100 people visit your website how many of those turn into a call, enquiry or an order? If you’re finding the number of conversions is dropping it’s worth reassessing your website. Perhaps your homepage isn’t clear - is it obvious what your products or services are? Or maybe your Contact Us form asks for too much information. If a customer is taking those first steps you don’t want to scare them off with lots of questions. Fundamentally you need to understand your customers so that all your marketing and content is relatable and relevant to your potential customers.
