Google Analytics

Overall Satisfaction with Google Analytics

In our workplace, different online and offline marketing teams use Google Analytics. It allows us not just to analyze different channels but also gives us insight into our end users. So far, it's helped our desktop team understand where the user drops off and how we can improve those drop-offs. Based on the data we analyze, we create content that allows us to retain users for a longer period of time and reduce drop-offs.

Comparing to its competitors, Google Analytics has all the bells and whistles. Some components are missing in terms of customizations. Some of the other analytics platforms allow you to have a lot more customizations compared to Google Analytics. However, Google Analytics is great for tracking users in real-time to measure your acquisition channels for the basic needs. You can link Google Analytics to your Google Ads account to go further in analyzing data and getting a better insight into your existing users/new users for more advanced users. Conversion tracking is OK. It seems like it is a bit out of touch with reality, and the numbers seem to be overly inflated. Also, setting up Goals can be tricky per our experience.
