Make the most of A/B testing tools 

A/B testing can seem like a daunting prospect, but there are tools available to do the hard work for you. By testing different versions of pages, you can gain insight into which content, visuals, and calls to action resonate with your audience.

A tool like Unbounce can be a simple solution for easily testing landing pages for events or limited-time offers. This process helps you continually improve your website performance.

Business analytics tools can help you track user behaviour 

Knowledge of how visitors interact with your website puts you one step ahead of the competition. Metrics such as page views, time on page and user flow are invaluable for knowing where and why users drop off along their customer journeys. This information can help shape content strategy because you will become more aware of your audience preferences.

You can track these metrics through Google Analytics. Google Search Console can also be extremely useful for a deeper understanding of your stats. The console will allow you to peek at the stats for individual pages and find out how they perform on Google Search.

Regularly review your data analytics strategy 

Using analytics to get the most out of your website is an ongoing process. You need to review your data regularly to monitor progress and identify new opportunities. All of the tools in this blog can be useful to empower your marketing, however, you will still need to be flexible and consistent. We recommend constantly amending your strategies to help you get the most out of your website.

Website analysis can be a time-consuming regular activity but it’s a practice that pays off in the long run.
