Finding areas of improvement using analytics is vital to informing our A/B testing strategy. The idea is that your benchmark “A” version of the user experience is the “unoptimised” version of the experience, whereas the “B” version is the new experience we hope will work better. If it does work better, we keep it. If it doesn’t, we design new tests until we get it right and you start seeing successful results.
In depth analysis of data, digging deep and investigating why things happen like they do is the most enjoyable part of any analysts work in Quru. We look at different types of users that come to your website – new visitors versus repeat visitors, customers versus prospects, men versus women, tech versus tech, visits that read your content versus visitors that don’t. We do this to understand the user journey and the way different traffic sources contribute to the visitor experience and usage.
No-one wants to do campaigns that aren’t effective. You can’t manage what you can’t measure. Google Analytics is a tool that allows us to understand how efficient your website and digital marketing campaigns are at providing value to your customers rather than spamming them. Quru are the first company in Finland to hold GACP certification and be an Analytics 360 reseller.
