Google Analytics for WordPress (Part 1)

Start Learning

When you create a WordPress website or blog, what’s your primary goal? It’s a no brainer, really – you want to attract as many subscribers and visitors as you possibly can. But what do you want your viewers to do once they’re on your site? Why have you brought them there, and how did they get there? Which campaigns bring you the most visitors, which web pages do they spend the most time on, and which ones rack up the maximum conversions?

Unless you track these metrics and work toward bending them in your favor, you’re running blind – and your chances of making it big with your content are about as high as they are of you running into Danny Ocean and his band of merry thieves. You see, no marketing professional enters the digital marketing game unless they want to make it big. Which is why nearly every one of them uses Google Analytics.

Google Analytics helps you track, measure, and analyze each of the above metrics, and then some. All you need to do is install a Google Analytics plugin, and you start raking in your data immediately. It’s as simple as that. And the best part? Not only is it free, but even the installation, like all things WordPress – is as easy as pie.

Laying the Foundation for Your Digital Transformation

Start Learning

Digital transformation is a concept that has become so mainstream it has morphed into a catch-all buzz phrase that, at best, is confusing. At its worst, it’s meaningless. Truth is, the idea is going to mean different things for different organizations. Think of digital transformation as being “in the eye of the beholder.”

Let’s agree on this much: It ultimately marks a radical rethinking of how an organization uses technology, processes, and people to evolve its business performance and eventually drive profitable growth and customer success. 

But again, digital transformation can be a proxy for a wide range of innovations and strategies as organizations try to stay on the cutting edge. In fact, it can be as much about how individuals work and the cultures of organizations as it is about technology.

So, how ready is your company as you embark upon this complex undertaking? 

There are some key areas that organizations must get right to ensure a successful digital transformation:

Start Learning

It’s a common conundrum. You’ve worked hard, learned a lot, and are ready to take on your next professional challenge. But…no one will hire or promote you because you don’t have the right work experience. But you can’t get the right experience because no one will give you a shot. The cycle never ends. 

Regardless of whether you’re switching fields, just starting your career, or gunning for your next promotion, if you find yourself stuck in the “work experience” gridlock, you must create your own experiences to make up for it.
