Analytics defined is the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in data and tracking of that data. Basically, we use tools to collect information, break down statistics and interpret them in the best way possible for you and your business to understand. These breakdowns rely on the simultaneous application of statistics, computer programming and operations research to quantify performance. By forming the information collected into a visually digestible format, we are able to communicate the insights to consumers, customers and stakeholders alike.
The application of analytics to data collected via Digital Strategic Efforts is especially important to businesses to describe, predict and improve business and campaign performance. To further break this down, analytics include subjects like:

Using this information, we can improve the marketing campaigns, site content, information architecture and in turn, start bringing in more “shirt-buyers.”
Digital Marketing techniques (which we also refer to as Attribution Modeling) we frequently use include:
