Checking In

Every week when I sit down and write this newsletter I try and think about past experiences and how they might apply to a lesson in business.

This week I want to talk about you, and only you.

How are you?

It’s been a shitty couple of years. You’ve been through a lot. Even if you didn’t experience loss, you’ve witnessed thousands of others go through it. It hurts. It makes you sad, confused and left feeling powerless.

Are you taking care of yourself?

On the days that feel like everything is going wrong, how do you make something go right? Are you grinding through your days or are you taking it moment by moment, being gentle with yourself? When was the last time you got up and stretched? When was the last time you had some water?

Are the days blurring together?

When you haven’t left the house for days, maybe even weeks, it starts to get difficult to tell the difference between a Monday and a Thursday. Do you have a routine? Is that routine working or does it feel like a drag?

Are you staying connected?

When was the last time you talked with one of your friends or family members? Calling, texting, video chats – those methods can feel tiresome but when the alternative is to hole up in your house in complete isolation, it’s better than nothing. Sometimes all it takes is saying “hi” to start the conversation.

As fun as it is for me to talk about business and AI and marketing – I recognize that behind all that technology are humans. Just people doing their best. This time of year brings added stresses and pressures so don’t forget to take care of yourself.

I’m here if you need someone to say hi to. Don’t be shy!

Data Diaries - Interesting Data We Found

This week’s Data Diaries are… absent. Why? Because it’s the 12 Days of Data!

12 Days of Data graphic

We’re featuring data from 2021 as we look back at the year that was. Some of the key takeaways so far?

  • Instagram continues to be less effective for marketers in terms of engagement, both for brands and influencers
  • Reels have probably eaten IGTV.
  • TikTok’s algorithm is fairly simple to understand in terms of ranking factors

Catch up on the first five entries below:

In the next few installments, we’ll have topics like SEO link decay, content republishing, and much more, so make sure you catch them. And for certain datasets where we have a license to be able to publish the data, we’ll be releasing it exclusively in our free Analytics for Marketers Slack Group, so be sure you’re enrolled there.

  • Are you happy with the answers you’re getting out of Google Analytics today?
  • Are you confident in the decisions you’re making from Google Analytics?
  • Are you secure in the knowledge that you’re set up properly to benefit from Google Analytics 4?

If you answered no to any of the questions above, let’s take some time to get your analytics in shape. Google Analytics 4 is the analytics software of the future. Google has made no bones about the fact that anything new they develop will be in GA4 only. To take advantage of the new features, you need to get your house in order now.

So we’re offering you a Google Analytics 4 bootcamp. We’ll help you:

  • Get your existing Google Analytics account in shape with proper goals, tracking cleanup, and best practices
  • Identify key issues that will block your ability to use Google Analytics 4 and help resolve them
  • Help set an analytics strategy for this that focuses on answers, decisions, and growth rather than pouring more data in your inbox
  • Build a migration plan for Google Analytics 4, including Google Tag Manager and Google Data Studio
