Where should you start with your mobile app analytics?
If you’re launching a mobile app, you’ve likely considered the differences between optimizing a simple site and a mobile app or game. But have you considered how the measurement and data analysis process will be different?
Without a definitive plan and deep understanding of the fundamentals, your mobile app data will get complicated quickly. There are new tools, new terminology, new reports, new rules for efficiency, and so on.
According to Econsultancy, up to 30% of ecommerce visitors use internal site search. Due to the increased level of purchase intent from searchers, they’re known to convert up to 5–6x higher than the average non–site search visitor.
Yet how many sites pay attention to site search? Too often, it gets ignored. This post walks you through opportunities to improve your internal site search.
Retention is the key to building a great business.
When your core product experience brings your users back time and time again, you gain some incredible advantages. You spend less on acquisition, learn from your users faster, and start building a community through word of mouth and referrals.
If you can’t retain your users, you’re going to spend more on acquisition while not growing as quickly. You’ll spread distaste for your product, not delight. Soon, you’ll find that there are no more users out there to churn through.
Customers don’t usually see one ad and then click over to purchase.
In reality, the path is much more complex, and usually includes various marketing channels – organic and paid search, referral, social media, television.
But if you’re a rigorous and data-driven marketer, the question has to cross your mind: how much credit can I give each channel for this conversion?
No one ever said optimizing any website is easy. But at least if you’re working on an eCommerce site, you have clear metrics to hit. You have goals on which (probably) everyone agrees.
But what if you’re an analyst, optimizer, or digital marketer and working on a site without a clear conversion?
