Pinpoint Improvement Areas with Data

Data analysis is one of the primary parts of my role; I tend to look at numbers a lot during the week. Being able to analyze these and interpret the data helps to pinpoint areas for improvement, which is why our clients tend to love working with us. We're able to communicate these areas, plan, and then action our strategies while tracking the impact. In doing this, we can clearly show the positive impact that we have on our clients, which often helps them to understand why marketing is so important. Simple analysis, like identifying lost-traffic pages on a website, is an easy way to get a quick win. If, over the last quarter, you've found that a page has lost traffic significantly, we can evaluate that page and find its weak points that need to be improved. Implementing this process will help you to keep on top of overall performance and keep things moving in the right direction.

Boost Conversion Rates with Analytics

Data analytics became particularly important through our execution of Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) techniques, such as A/B testing, copy optimization, heat maps, session recording, and user surveys and feedback. These methods are prolific data generators, and the challenge lies in efficiently processing this data to glean insights into user behavior. Our analytics platform was configured to not just gather this data but to analyze and interpret it, enabling us to deeply understand how users interact with our website and what drives their decisions.

The software measured the parameters that defined a successful round of CRO, clearly identifying which variations worked and which didn't. Through this detailed analysis, we were able to convert raw data into actionable insights, leading to strategic adjustments that significantly boosted our conversion rates.

Tailor Marketing with Customer Data

Data analytics has provided insights that help us make informed decisions. At Tough Turtle Turf, we leverage data to understand customer behavior, preferences, and trends. By analyzing data from various sources, we tailor our marketing strategies to reach the right audience with our messages. This approach has helped us optimize our campaigns, resulting in higher engagement and conversion rates. Data analytics has also enabled us to personalize our marketing efforts, delivering relevant messages to our customers. In essence, data analytics has become an integral part of our marketing strategy, helping us stay ahead in our market.

Optimize Email Strategy Through Device Data

When analyzing the device usage data for one of our clients' email programs, we discovered that 92% of all opens were coming from two sources: Gmail and iPhone Apple Mail. This single data point gave us insight into where and how our emails were being viewed. So, we rewrote our email code to better target these specific inbox providers and provided a mobile-first responsive design. As a result, our average read time rate increased by almost 10 percentage points.

Enhance Engagement with Analytic Insights

As an agency that prides itself on marrying aesthetics and metrics, we measure the analytic results of all our content and report on those analytics. Every fluctuation in data allows us to tailor ongoing strategies to best support the client's goals. Working with one of our realtor clients, we noticed in her monthly analytic reporting that her newly revamped Instagram account was succeeding in terms of impressions but needed engagement, since her audience was essentially brand new. We made the quick decision to implement a new growth strategy for her account, cross-promoting her content on a personal page and engaging with already established personal connections on her new real estate page. Since improving this growth strategy, her account following has grown by nearly 50%, and engagement is up by 84%.
