Starting off strong with Google Analytics, a vital digital marketing tool that can assist with several marketing decisions and tasks. With Google Analytics, you can track the performance of your e-commerce business whilst keeping track of your goals. This is important as it can keep you on track with targets and goals.
Google Analytics is the go-to tool for data insights. It presents your team with easy-to-follow and understands data insights and any tasks required to maximise website performance through modifications and changes.
Google Analytics can analyse and understand :
- Website visitor behaviour
- User demographics, including interests, location etc
- Session statistics
- Device information

It works on a bidding strategy, and when you start to create your campaign, you can add landing pages, create some advertisements, offer services, product listings, video content and more.
The pricing models on Google Ads come in 3 different types.
