Actions that have real commercial or brand value for your organization. So you need to actively create the conditions for this to happen on your site. And when you’ve optimized your website experience, the next step is to measure the performance of your channels and your marketing activities, and we can do this using analytics tools. The insights that you will uncover from this activity can help you make sound, strategic decisions in relation to your campaigns and what you’re doing.
