In many organisations web analytics is about reporting endless website statistics. But how do you cut through masses of data to uncover insights that enable you to truly improve the critical outcomes on your website?

The web analytics and optimisation course will equip you with the knowledge, tools and techniques to take your organisation from a reporting culture to a culture of data-driven improvement of the entire visitor experience and conversion process.

This training course is software independent and is equally relevant for users of Google Analytics, Adobe SiteCatalyst, Webtrends, Coremetrics or other products. It also compliments our Google Analytics training course.

The course provided a very useful overview of what web analytics can do, how this may apply in my organisation and what actions were needed to take this forward.

This is the second Emarketeers course I have attended and yet again I came out brimming with ideas for how to take my organisation forward.

This is the second Emarketeers course I have been on and have been extremely impressed by both. I have taken away so many useful tips and techniques that I can apply to the work I do every day, which for me is the essence of a great course.

This course was very informative and gave a very comprehensive overview of everything you need to know to implement a successful web analytics and conversion strategy within your business.

A great session with Emarketeers, providing a really good overview of the web and social analytics landscape.

The trainer and course content were both very good. Facilitated by videos, real time online analytics examples and high level strategy explanation and directions were very helpful. I would recommend this course as an introduction to Web Analytics.

This course was packed full of interesting tips. From strategy, to metrics, to selecting the right online platform, it gave me lots of new ideas as well as the practical advice that I needed.

The web analytics course was very interesting, I took away so much, and there are great resources after the course to help your learning.

The web analytics and optimisation course is absolutely brilliant. The combination of best practise theory, real life case studies and practical exercises means you walk away with a tonne more knowledge than you walked in with.

This was an extremely enlightening course that has really got the cogs going! Very beneficial to anyone who wants to understand their site, their customers and continually develop their business.

I would highly recommend this course, whether you are new to web analytics or have average knowledge. It introduces you to new ideas and tools to increase your ROI.

An incredibly clear yet thorough course that, when put into practice will help us acheive our long term objectives.

I took so much from the course I just hope I'm able to absorb it all!

I've attended both the Web Analytics and Social Media courses with Emarketeers and have found both very insightful, helpful and relivant. I have come away both times with a lot of food-for-thought and inspiration!

The course was very informative and it's great to have an expert on hand to ask any questions and give their advice on. The group size was small which was good as you get to learn more and get to ask more questions when you get stuck!

A great introduction that pushes your ability and puts you on course for getting the most out of your website.

The course was brilliant. The instructor made Google Analytics easy to understand as he was asking us to implement the different tools live on our own account. I feel like I understand Google Analytics inside out now.
