Web Analytics: Online Marketing Measurement

Good news: I’ll be returning to the classroom for the first time this Spring since “Marketing with Digital Media” at Columbia College way back in the mid-90s; teaching a new course that I’ve developed this time at my alma mater .

Here are the main areas that I’m planning to cover in Web Analytics: Online Marketing Measurement:

  • Develop a plan to measure online marketing based on solid best-practices
  • Know the essential technology of Web analytics and industry terminology
  • Learn how to use industry-standard tools like Google Analytics and Quantcast
  • Prepare meaningful actionable reports that communicate essential findings
  • Make fact-based recommendations and identify opportunities for optimization

Analytics has so many definitions – depends who you ask. What do people want to see?
