Her name is Becky and is 33 years old. She lives a few blocks away from where my clothing enterprise is located. Becky is a jovial and outgoing person who has a clear vision in her life. She always comes to my business 3-4 times in a month for some items especially the latest dresses and high heels. She told me she recently graduated with a master’s degree and looks forward in pursuing her doctorate. Becky works as an executive director of a food service restaurant.

The unique proposition for the client is: “Wondering what to wear for the occasion, get the latest dressing tips and fashions today at no extra costs.”A majority of our clients normally don’t know what to wear when they want to attend or participate in different activities. We do deliver on our clients’ needs because I understand what they are looking for in the clothing and fashion sector. When Becky came to our shop for the first time, she didn’t know what to wear for her interview. I simply gave her some tips on how to look presentable when attending the interview. After that, I chose a couple of official clothes for that occasion and from that day; she decided to be a long time customer.

Running Head: ANALYTICS ACCOUNT Module 02 Course Project Implementing an Analytics Account Matthew Marquette Rasmussen College B434/MAR4355 Author Note This paper is being submitted on February 24th, 2019 for Professor Warren Eck B434/MAR4355 Section 01 Web Analytics - Online Plus 1 ANALYTICS ACCOUNT 2 ANALYTICS ACCOUNT. Part one Web analytics is an essential feature in online marketing that guides a user in knowing the source and density of traffic on a website. Conversion metrics are significant because they indicate the performance of a business and whether its goals have achieved within a given time frame. The following is the process of implementing an analytics tool for a client. First is to come up with the business objectives and KPIs. Business objectives are the goals of the business and the steps involved in the goals. Then the next step is assigning appropriate KPIs. For instance, the conversion rate and the number of active users is one of the KPIs the client can use. Come up with steps to accomplish every task in the website features. The measures will help to visualise the actions that the user performs to accomplish each task. Next step is to transform every user action into an event. Transformation is achieved by giving your events different levels of importance and determining the best metrics according to the KPIs that are in use. Some of the ways to track actions of the users include keeping track of specific URLs, track how much time the user spends on a particular page and also the number of pages a user goes through before they leave. Next step is to formulate a plan to track your users. Often a spreadsheet is used is very convenient for this type of work. Next is to choose an analytics tool that you will use and it must meet the requirements. Next is to put your analytics tool into use. Add tracking code and modifications necessary to track additional things. Design and set the user interface of your analytics and should maximise on the events outlined in the tracking plan. Analytics will help to achieve your objectives. There should be some different views as well as different filter for the user to choose what kind of data he needs to view and in what type of format. Permission should ANALYTICS ACCOUNT 3 also be available to users for them to see reports of their choice and even the dashboard. Next is to create a panel and unique descriptions for each data view. They should include some more information about the user actions on the website. Make sure that the reports are accurate and give the desired output. The following are types of analytics reports that are used by the client. Reports are a critical tool for maintaining the right track of your goals and how far you have gone to achieve them. For a successful generation of substantial reports, there must be great attention from the business end users and computer professionals. Some of the types of analytics reports used by the client include: Dashboard reports- They contain company data that consists of the performance and comparison indicators. At a glance, the manager can have an overview of the business. Dashboards report on how the key performance indicators, metrics and analytics are at a particular time. For instance, you can have a panel that displays the sales revenue generated in a certain period presented on a pie chart. Multidimensional reports- Mostly they contain information ranging from different varieties; however, you can still filter this information to get the descriptions of your choice. The wide range of data allows for more precise and meaningful reports. For instance, you are having the sales revenue generated by each item category and then presenting it in a table format. You can opt to filter for the items according to your liking. Technical reports- They involve research none on the business metadata by the data analysts and also data modellers. For instance, you can have a user's data on the most clicked item on the ANALYTICS ACCOUNT website and even the page he spends his most time on and from this two data sets be able to predict what his interests are. 4 ANALYTICS ACCOUNT 5 References Burby, J., Brown, A., & WAA Standards Committee.

ANALYTICS ACCOUNT 6 Part 2 How a google analytics account can be implemented Google analytics is a free tool that provides statistics for your blog or website for the sole purpose of marketing. Any person with a Google account can open a google analytics account for his business. Google Analytics account gives you an overview of channels that are making your website have high traffic. Some of these channels include searches performed on your website (search traffic), social media links on your website if another website links to a page on your site and someone clicks the link (referrals) and also when people type the address of your site manually (direct traffic). Google analytics will be implemented on my client's website in the following ways: Tracking. It is vital since it makes you aware of how many people visited your site, and also their location. Google analytics helps you to set up goals when a particular event is complete on your website. Through this, the client will have items that she loves viewing on the first page when she logs in. Interaction- google analytics allows you to get statistics on how well users get to interact with your website and how efficiently they accomplish tasks. These metrics give information on how the customer has associated with your website. The bounce rate shows the percentage of users who defect from your site without interaction. Pages provide the average number of pages visited by a user. Session time involves the period spent by a user on the site. ANALYTICS ACCOUNT 7 Device analysis- shows the kind of device the traffic is coming from and thus showing how efficient is the website in that device. This includes the desktop and mobile version and how active they are. Functions that a google analytics account provides Google analytics account keeps track of the visitor actions on the website. Thus providing its functionalities. One of its tasks is to show when visitors enter and leave your funnel. This will help you know where in the funnel path do people tend to move away from your website, what is making them go and where is the best part of your site that people spend much time. Google analytics keeps a database of the previous time and performs comparisons of the current and past. This helps you to keep track of your objectives and see if you are fulfilling them. It is thus helping you to monitor your goals closely. Google analytics provide annotations. They tell you why traffic on a particular day was low or high. This is important since it gives you a rough idea on when the website is busy to maximise on it; however, they are less useful if frequently used. Make sure you reserve them for the essential tasks. Reports in Google Analytics account. Mobile performance report: this report indicates how well your website responds to a mobile browser. It also includes suggestions as to how they should make improvements if your website is not up to standards. In my client’s website, this report will help in ensuring that the site the client is using will give the optimum performance and efficiency in performing all the activities. ANALYTICS ACCOUNT 8 Traffic acquisition report: this report gives an overview of the channels that generate traffic on your website and whether or not it is translating into tangible results. This report will be incorporated into the client's website to give a good idea of how productive the site is and what can be done to maximise the conversion rates. Content efficiency report: This report is developed to generate essential metrics that will come in handy to help you identify which website is performing well content-wise. This will help to remove the kind of content that is less important to the client and add much of what is mostly viewed. Keyword analysis report: this report analyses the most frequent incoming keywords to your website. This data is then used to figure out the kinds of keywords that are contributing to your goal. This report will help to know which keywords will make my client's site available to a more significant group of people and making use of them. Bounce rate versus Exit rate report: this report gives a comparison of the percentage of visitors who leave your website without taking any action and the visitors who visit more than one page before going. This report will be vital since it will help in identifying the reasons as to why the users leave when they visit a specific page and make sure I remedy the situation. The Comparison of Google analytics tools to other analytics tools. Google Analytics is a well-known tool used for tracking, analysing, and reporting website data.

Webtrends is one of the companies that offer analytics services that are provided in the SaaS model. Webtrends is one of the highly customizable tools and serves thousands of customers and enterprises. One of its best things is the presence of a heat map feature, that allows you to make decisions associated with the design. However, it has fewer integration capabilities with other products.

The CRO and LPO hashtag analytics
According to various researches and studies, the #CRO and #LPO are critical elements
evident in social media platforms like Twitter that play a vital role in online marketing. Just to
mention, both include various actions on webpages that are meant for marketing purposes.
Important to note, well designed and modified webpages play a critical role in attracting more
visitors who are in turn converted into customers before they leave the webpage ("Hashtag and
Landing Page - B2B Marketing Zone", 2019). In other terms, Conversion Rate Optimization
(CRO) is the process of enabling people to take action immediately they visit a given website.
Using the CRO strategy, a business is likely to increase the number of customers and optimize
their values. On the other hand, Landing Page Optimization (LPO) is a section or part of the
internet marketing technique. It entails the magnification and decoration of various webpages to
attract more customers at the end of the day. Its major agenda for the LPO is to achieve a specific
objective in terms of the quantity and quality of the visitor's response. In this essay, insights of
various articles on the #CRO and #LPO will be critically analyzed.
Fast forward, various researches indicate that the Conversion Rate Optimization is a vital
element that promotes product marketing to a very great extent. Since the technique categorically
deals with the online marketing of items, it's essential to make all online marketing platforms
appealing and attractive. By doing so, more customers will be attracted to certain websites more
than others (Bullock, 2019). For the #CRO the webpage must attain certain given conditions to
optimize its objectives. However, most of the conditions to be attained in this context are majorly
aimed at making the website look appealing and attractive. Consequently, this will enable the site
to attain popularity and fame.
