Data Visualization and Expert Presentation
Michele Kiss and Tim Wilson
The best digital analysis in the world is ineffective without successful communication of the results. In this half-day class, Web Analytics Demystified Partners Michele Kiss and Tim Wilson share their advice for successfully presenting data to all audiences, including communication of numbers, data visualisation, dashboard best practices and effective storytelling and presentation.
Requirements Gathering the Demystified Way
One of the things that we’ve learned in our years of experience working with digital analytics, is that business-users are rarely able to articulate their analytics requirements in a manner that can be easily translated into measuring website effectiveness. Simply asking these users what data they need leads to insufficient information and gaps in most web analytics deployments. As such, Web Analytics Demystified developed a process designed to gather information necessary to consistently evaluate the effectiveness of our clients fixed web, mobile sites, mobile apps and other digital assets. In this session, John Lovett will train users on validating existing business requirements and formulating new ones based on stakeholder needs and our proven best practices.
Tag Management Essentials
You’ve no doubt heard the buzz about tag management, but perhaps you’re a bit late to the party. In this session, Web Analytics Demystified partner Josh West will introduce the basics of tag management and show how it can simplify your online marketing efforts. You’ll review concepts like a data layer, how tag management can reduce your dependence on IT, and cover the most popular features of the leading tools in the market.
Testing and Optimization the Demystified Way
Brian Hawkins will share best practices when it comes to growing or starting an optimization program at your organization. Best practices around segmentation, targeting, integrations with internal and external solutions, and test types will be covered.
