According to Wikipedia, Web analytics (or statistics) is the “measurement, collection,
analysis and reporting of Internet data for purposes of understanding and optimizing
web site usage.” Simply stated, this means measuring results to make sure your site
is working for you. You must start to measure your Web generated sales results if
you are here to increase your business.
Before you start an E-Marketing campaign you need a base point to start measuring
results. You need to know where you are and where you want to go. Your starting
point is where you are now, and your goal is your desired outcome. As you proceed
further with your strategy, you need to measure to determine your progress along
the way. How else will you know if you are reaching your goals?
When you do something in your E-Marketing campaign you have to determine if it has
a measurable effect. You need to know if you should continue and reinforce your
efforts, or abandon ship and try a new tactic. How do you know that now?
Measuring sticks include sales of products and services, as well as sales trends
and comparisons. This includes recent past history, as well as long term history.
Some of the things you should measure are:
Web generated sales as versus local sales (if applicable).
Unique visitor hits.
Web pages browsed by visitors
Entry and Exit pages, Bounce Rates, Time Spent on Site, etc.
Telephone and email inquires.
Separate local advertising, referrals, as well as Web based sources.
You must try different strategies, experiment, analyze to improve, then try other
strategies. When you try something different see if there is a significant change
in any of the previous results. Some strategies are short term, while others are
long term. Most will probably fail but some will work for you. If you keep on trying,
you will find the key that works and brings your desired results. When you find
that key hit it hard, and continue hitting it!!!!
