Introduction to web analytics
A Picture the scene: you’ve opened up a new fashion retail outlet in the trendiest shopping centre in town. You’ve spent a small fortune on advertising and branding. You’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that you’re stocking all of the prestigous brands. Come opening day your store is inundated with visitors and potential customers. And yet, you are hardly making any sales. Could it be because you have one cashier for every hundred customers? Or maybe it’s the fact that the smell of your freshly painted walls chases customers away before they complete a purchase. While it can be difficult to isolate and track the factors affecting your revenue in this fictional store, move it online and you
have a wealth of resources available to assist you with tracking, analysing and
optimising your performance.
To a marketer, the Internet offers more than just new avenues of creativity. By
its very nature, it allows you to track each click to your site and through your

track almost every detail of any campaign.
Most analytics packages can be used across all digital marketing activities,
allowing for an integrated approach to determining the success of campaigns.
While it is important to analyse each campaign on its own merits, the Internet
allows for a holistic approach to these activities. The savvy marketer will be
able to see how campaigns affect and enhance each other.
The connected nature of the Internet has made it possible to reach out to
far greater audiences, and for people around the world to interact, create
and share. The same connected nature is what makes it possible for website
owners to track and analyse how users around the world interact with their
website, and to optimise it for those users.
