You’d like to be more rational and data-driven in your decision making. You know that your museum has been collecting web traffic metrics using Google Analytics, but you’ve never fully understood what those reports mean for you or your department. How can you use this popular software to find actionable data that helps you do your job better? In this session you will get a practical tutorial, led by two Google Analytics veterans at the Smithsonian, who will provide an overview of the current Google Analytics, including some of its newest, most powerful features. The presenters will also discuss the step-by-step process for moving beyond measurement just for measurement’s sake, using real-life museum case studies as examples.
