What previous attendees have said about the Advanced Google Analytics training
Thank you for today. It was a fantastic introduction, that has opened up a host of possible applications for my own website and that of my clients. You have answered all of the questions that have been brewing since I was first advised to look at Google Analytics 2 years ago.
Really beneficial information which will allow me to make a positive impact on my clients websites – really useful.
Very useful course. Very well taught. Best training I have done for a very long time! Thanks.
Having very little knowledge of Google Analytics before the training, I feel I am now much more knowledgeable about the tool and can help my team/colleagues understand it better and also the customers I am responsible for.
A clear, systematic guide through the vast subject of Google Analytics. Enabled me to clarify my objectives and plan a campaign.
