Challenges

Though the client ran various campaigns on marketing channels, discovering which tactics worked and which didn’t seemed difficult. Identifying the right marketing mix was also difficult for them without proper Google Analytics reports. Consequently, identifying the right audience and understanding the factors that determined goal conversion proved difficult.

Our Approach

I2 Decision’s web analytics experts followed a strategic approach to meet the client’s objectives. Initially, we developed an assessment framework for measuring Google analytics implementation maturity. The framework had five main components including Business Objectives, Google Analytics utilization, Customer Acquisition, Customer engagement, campaign management and Reporting. This framework was used to score each component from 1 to 5. For example, the component Google Analytics utilization was scored 1 if GA was not utilized, scored 2 if default configuration were setup, scored 3 if custom configuration were setup , scored 4 if all featured were leveraged and scored 5 if GA was used as a strategic tool.

 

We audited the Google analytics implementation of the site and found several areas of improvement. We determined the characteristics of the right audience group and then developed strategies to target them. We analyzed the effectiveness of various channels which in turn helped them to make strategic investment plans for various channels. It helped them to have right marketing mix for promotions and awareness.

 

We also analyzed the behavior of users with respect to various segments including mobile vs. desktop, branded vs. non-branded user behaviors and so on which helped us to get actionable insights. We identified the right channels for assisting and converting users which helped the client to make strategic investment decisions on various channels. Using content experiment, we helped the client to take data driven decisions to choose the optimized version of the signup page. We further analyzed various fields in the form using hotjar which provided further actionable insights. We found that most of the people were not entering their age in the form. After we found this actionable insight, we changed the age field to the age group which reduced the form abandonment up to 20%. A simplified version of the registration form was sent as a link through email for the users who dropped off from the registration process. This approach helped the client improve the conversion rate by 15%.

 

To improve the accuracy of reports made various configuration changes such as excluding traffic from bots & client environment. We helped the client to know the brand vs. non-brand search performances. We also created various dashboards and reports to meet their business objectives.
