Remember the good old days when we could just share the monthly Google Analytics with a client and they were wowed by our prowess? Sadly, those days are gone. One of the biggest challenges facing most agencies is how to help our clients understand the numbers and what they mean. They’re no longer content to see the data, they want to know how to use the information to make better decisions.
If you have someone on staff who can interpret the data and translate it, you’re one of the fortunate few. Most agencies are struggling to level up their internal analytics team to truly deliver on this client demand. I recently wrote a story for Smart Insights on how agencies are solving this problem.
This isn’t going to get easier and clients’ expectations aren’t going to get smaller. How are you prepping your team for this ongoing need? The agencies that get a handle on how to interpret the data and use it to guide future decisions are going to have a very compelling story to tell.
I’d love to hear how you’re solving this need.
