Data Collection: Keeping Tabs on Your Progress
Posted on January 24, 2015 in Blogging by cmblogger
One of the reasons small businesses frequently shy away from doing much Internet marketing is data collection. “I don’t know how.” or “It’s too complicated” are frequent refrains when it comes to managing a Pay per Click or SEO program.
And yet, gathering data about your users experience online is one of the most important and powerful tools any business with a web presence can use in creating an effective online marketing strategy. What does your bounce rate look like?
Where do your potential customers go after they leave your homepage? These are only two of the critical, make or break questions that any credible marketing department should be able to answer for you, and yet, too often, when the marketing department, and the sales department, and the customer service department is say, one person in a small business…these issues fall by the wayside.
