(music playing) Hi, I'm Matt Bailey, author, speaker, and president of Site Logic, an online marketing agency. Very early in my online marketing career I discovered information that saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars in adspend. I found that a source of visitors was not only my least amount of cost but also my greatest amount of business. Information like that can radically change a business as you find out which actions lead directly to revenue and profits rather than muddling through and guessing which direction to take.
Analytics is misunderstood to many as a boring, tedious job of combing through numbers and reporting information. In this course, I'm going to teach you how to transform your thinking and your approach to what analytics is, what it can do, and how it will change your online business. I've consulted with some of the biggest brands in the world. Teaching them how to implement a common sense analytics plan. And now I have the opportunity to share this knowledge directly with you. You'll learn what the terminology actually means and how current analytics is remarkably insufficient. Starting with your business goals, you'll learn how to apply value measurements to your website, and learn which pages push people away, and which pages push people to become customers.
You'll also learn how to integrate and measure your search engine optimization and social media campaigns, so that you can measure the full benefit of each. Finally it all comes down to understanding human behavior. When seeing some of these reports and what is possible, you'll find that you are only limited by the questions you ask. The answers are always in the data.
