Strategic Planning & Research
“What are we supposed to do with all of this data?”
Every online marketing platform promises to reward your efforts with endless amounts of analytics, and that’s exactly the problem. Portals like Google Analytics are an overwhelming sea of information, and the challenge of niche digital marketing is knowing where to set course for the insights you really need.
What am I supposed to be looking at?
The first challenge is defining the right metrics and KPI’s for marketing to your unique audience.
What are these stats trying to tell me?
Analytics reveal powerful, actionable insights when read within the context of a larger strategy.
Wait! What just changed?
Massive, paradigm-shifting changes in digital marketing are a constant. When you hear about things like major privacy shifts in iOS, the “death” of 3rd party cookies, or the coming of the “metaverse,” we make sure you’re able to pivot and adapt.
