I’m running 4 web analytics clinics during June. How is a clinic different to a normal training course? Well, you set the topics you want to learn about. There’s no set course of lessons. This is an opportunity to get some help and advice, learn some new techniques, take a peek at how other sites set up their reports, and you’ll meet some people from other agencies who have the same challenges and issues that you do. It’s 100% hands-on. Continue reading Web clinics: Google Analytics tips and tricks
