8 essential web analytics tools for digital marketing

Index Content

Measuring results is fundamental to any marketing strategy. Not all users are potential customers of your brand, nor are you going to achieve positive results if you don't have patience, commitment and effective decision-making. And for the latter, you need to obtain data on your marketing actions: cost of acquisition, growth in sales and profitability, visits to the website... In other words, KPIs or key performance indicators. If not, how do you plan to optimise your efforts and resources?

It's good to be attractive. You will always have more chances of having a crush on your audience. But not being just one of the crowd requires analytics, data that allows you to know what users expect from you and anticipate their needs. Imagine trying to understand all your website visitors at a glance. In the end, everyone has their own data, and to understand them you must collect, measure and analyse them. Fortunately, there are many analytics tools that can convert this information into understandable data.

Our mission today is to explain which ones you should use in your digital marketing strategy.
