Investing in CRO or traffic is a waste of money without robust Google Analytics data

Most Google Analytics accounts have faulty or incomplete set-ups - make sure yours isn't one of them

Companies who increase their conversion rates by 6% in a year are the highest performers – a study by Econsultancy showed that over half of these elite stars have a structured approach towards Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO). To do this, a data-driven strategy that sits across the organisation is a must. The sooner your business understand the importance of Google Analytics for CRO and traffic, the faster you’ll join the top performer ranks: worthy of acclaim, bonuses, and the customary fame and fortune that go with smashing website targets.

If you’re reading this, you know your GA is not up to scratch. At this stage, you want to find out the extent of the damage and to get your seniors on the same level. You need a conversion-growth-focused report.

We inspect your configuration against aspects including data integrity, data organisation and opportunities for insight.

You’ll benefit from the health check if:

  • You’re investing in new website features and want to make the most of your investment,
  • You’re committed to growing online revenue through increasing traffic and through conversion rate optimisation techniques (e.g. A/B testing),
  • You’ve started conversion growth activities already and want to improve your insight for developing better concepts, or you intend to start a conversion increase programme within the next 6 month.

Finally, a Google Analytics audit that shows you
how your data can be used to grow sales

Not another generic, automated audit

Our audit is mostly manual, except for scanning your website for tracking code issues. Before we do it, we ask you what metrics are important to you and what strategies you’re investing in – to prioritise all checks according to your most pressing KPIs.

E.g. when checking goals, an automated audit will tell you how many goals you’re tracking, and if they’re active. This might look nice colour-coded in a report page, but you’ll still be wondering what to do about it.

When checking goals, we’ll look at:

  • if your existing goals are relevant,
  • if the conversion data is correct,
  • if you should track other things as goals.
It’s data you can actually use to plan your optimisation.

“The GA Health Check is not going to transform your business… but it’ll show you where your top data opportunities are. Use it to fix your high-priority issues. Find out where to invest money in next to get a better return.”

Business Ahead Director

Other leading digital agencies use our services. Here's what Nay had to say after we completed a Google Analytics audit for their client:

“Business Ahead have a breadth of experience and knowledge that made them the perfect fit for helping one of our clients gain confidence in their data.

They conducted an Analytics Audit and a Google Tag Manager Audit, and provided an implementation plan for both. These entailed an identification of whether accurate data was being collected; whether the configuration was in line with our client’s marketing objectives; and whether there were additional ways in which meaningful insight about our client’s business, marketing campaigns and customers could be gleaned.

Our client is very happy with the work and feels confident that the data issues have been identified and that there's a clear plan in place for not just resolving them, but for also gaining further insight. It was a pleasure to work with Business Ahead, who were organised and extremely professional.

We thoroughly look forward to working with them again.”
