Diving into Data - Article Repost
"Without big data analytics, companies are blind and deaf, wandering out onto the Web like deer on a freeway."
As some of you know, I started working with the St. Thomas's Executive Education department as a market researcher. I have learned many techniques and tools and will be publishing a post about what I am terming "digital marketing research" in the coming weeks.
I was fortunate enough to take one of the many marketing courses the department offers: Marketing Data Analysis: Design, Dissect, Decide, taught by instructor, Jeff Sauer of Jeffalytics. Jeff taught us many valuable skills, including an in-depth training in Google Analytics, how to do analyses of competitors' websites and campaigns, digital measurement strategy and advanced digital measurement. I wrote an article about the course and my learnings. I have posted a snippet of the article as well as a link below.
Diving Into Data
This spring, I participated in Marketing Data Analysis: Design, Dissect, Decide through Executive Education. The program, which includes 20 hours of instruction presented over four days, is a deep dive into digital measurement strategy, Google Analytics training, qualitative digital measurement and advanced digital measurement.
I took the course because I wanted to learn how to effectively use Google Analytics for data collection and analysis and wanted to see real-world applications and examples. I also wanted to learn how to construct web and landing pages that are user-friendly and lead to customer conversion.
Because I tend to do a lot of my learning and career development online, I was also looking for an opportunity to connect face-to-face with an instructor and fellow students to help build my network. My instructor was Jeff Sauer, an alumnus of St. Thomas, who has extensive experience in digital marketing as a practitioner, instructor, and speaker. (For more info, check out Sauer’s website, Jeffalytics, where he posts content ranging from podcasts to online tutorials.) READ MORE HERE!
