How to Apply Analytics Data to Make Better Content Decisions

February 3, 2017
AS A CONTENT MARKETER you should be well-versed in analytics, no matter what your specific roles and responsibilities are in working with the discipline. Without analytics, you have no way of knowing whether or not the work you do is helping your business achieve its desired results, or how to make adjustments to keep your program running in top condition. However, we realize not every content marketer is comfortable working with numbers at all, let alone truly deciphering what all those figures, charts, and setting options really mean; so many simply dump the data they receive into a spreadsheet, chart, or graph, and hope that the trend lines continue to go “up, and to the right,” rather than down. But by skipping the analysis process, content marketers are wasting a tremendously valuable source of insights. Data in its raw form has no impact on your marketing outcomes — it’s just an observation of actions that have already taken place. Yet, the data in the Google Analytics reports you generate can be used to tell a much richer, more informative story about your content and about the people who are consuming it. It can also reveal specific actions you should be taking to drive better results — you just need to know how to translate it into the answers you need.
