Website Audits- Maintaining Your Marketing Stack
Knowing your marketing tech stack is the first step to knowing how to make the most out of it. Website audits are a great way to find how to improve your number-one digital marketing tool. Think of a website audit like car maintenance. When you have a mechanic check under the hood, you get a chance to repair those problems that you didn’t know were even there. And tune-up spots, preventing issues in the future.
Auditing your website once or twice a year ensures that your website is working hard for you by spotting any issues before they become big problems. Small fixes add up to greater visbility in Google searches and creates a remarkable shopping experience for your prospects. Filling in correct meta data and alt tags lays the groundwork for great SEO (Search Engine Optimization) on your website.
Bridge the gap between digital marketing efforts and real life attribution with goals in Google Analytics.
We suggest looking at usability and accessibility features that have a big impact on the user experience. Meta data and alt tags affect a user’s experience and how you rank on Google. Evaluating the tools you use for tracking activity on your site is extremely important to knowing if your website is performing how you want it to.
Google Analytics allows you to measure important steps in the customer journey like contact form submissions, phone calls, tours scheduled. If tracking for these aren’t set up correctly then your team will have a hard time knowing what efforts are truly working and where you can improve next. Measuring the success of digital campaigns with Google Analytics bridges the gap between digital marketing efforts and real-life attribution.
