Three free webinars on how to make the most of Google Analytics and Blackbaud Luminate. A follow up to my 2018 Blackbaud Conference session.
Earlier this month I presented a session at the 2018 Blackbaud Conference (BBCon) in Orlando. The session looked at how use Google Analytics to measure and optimize the performance of your Blackbaud Luminate site, and I co-presented with Brenna Holmes.
The conference was a series of firsts for me. It was my first time in Florida. It was the first time my plane had to fly around a hurricane to get home. And it was the first time I realized I had to do a follow up session once I got home from a conference.
There was a lot to cover in our hour long session, where we showed people how Google Analytics could help them raise more money and engage more followers online. From the questions after the session, I realized that people would benefit from a follow up session that got into the details of exactly how to make the most of Google Analytics for their Luminate site. So here are those follow up sessions.

I am running a workshop next week called Website Redesign with Google Analytics
In the two hour workshop, we’ll quickly review the key elements of these Google Analytics tutorialsÂ before applying them to the website redesign process.
What You Will Learn
From the registration page :
During the two hour workshop we will cover
- A brief introduction to Google Analytics, and why it’s particularly helpful with planning a website redesign
- Avoiding the most common and costly mistakes of redesigning your site (solving the baby/bathwater problem)
- Identifying your top content, your biggest opportunities to get more visitors and what’s working and what’s not on your current website
- Dashboards that will help your site redesign go smoothly
- Do you really need to redesign your site, or can you just refresh it?
While this workshop is most useful to people already using Google Analytics on their website, you don’t need to have any previous experience with the tool.
A few people have asked me if this workshop will be offered online in the future. I have not committed to that yet, but if that sounds interesting to you, please let me know!

If you only looked at one piece of information in Google Analytics, what should it be?
Whenever I look at a new (to me) clientsâ€™ account I go straight to this report in Google Analytics that tells me instantly how their website (and online marketing) is doing, and what needs to be done to properly set up Google Analytics.
I am going to walk you through this one report: what it is, how to set it up and what itâ€™s trying to tell you.
Landing pages are the first page your visitors see when they visit your website – their entry point into your site.Â If you want to improve your online results, they are some of the best places to focus your time and energy.

I got an email from a digital agency this week, asking for help. Their client was noticing a 50% drop in the number of visitors to their recently relaunched site over the same month last year.
Could I check out their web analytics to figure out what was going wrong?
