Learn the Power of Google Analytics for your Business

The Estes Valley Library and the Estes Park Economic Development Corporation (Estes Park EDC) are partnering with the Larimer Small Business Development Center (Larimer SBDC) for a special workshop titled “Google Analytics” to be held Wednesday, April 22 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Google offers a comprehensive package of analytics tools offered for free, but leveraging these tools for your business can be intimidating and overwhelming. Google Analytics shows you the full customer picture across ads and videos, websites and social tools, tablets and smartphones. That makes it easier to serve your current customers and win new ones.

In this workshop, Reu Smith of The Marketing Lab will cover how to use Google Analytics to: 

     • Read and set up analytics reports
     • Evaluate the information you read in the report

     • Change your site to see improvements in your ranking

     • Gain insider tips, tricks, and practices 

To take full advantage of all this workshop has to offer, please sign up for a free Google Analytics account at www.google.com/analytics. 
Come learn from a pro how to harness the powerful tools available to get your search results to where they should be, #1!
There is a registration fee of $30. Register by following this link and please call 970-498-9295 to pre-pay. A 48-hour notice of cancellation is required for a refund.
