Google Analytics 4 training with Colleen Harris

Data and analytics: They’re what’s needed to judge if your website, advertising campaign, landing page, or business listing is reaching, engaging, and converting your potential audience. Everyone knows you need your Google Analytics, Search Console and Ads installed to gather all the data. Follow that up with “What do you do with that data?” and you get silence.

Join analytics expert Colleen Harris for her two-part Master Class to explore all parts of Google Analytics 4, from finding data to replacing views with custom reporting. We’ll look into all the ways we can find the influence of strategy in data, even if you don’t know the source. We’ll cover building audiences in cross-domain tracking and how “consent mode” works with customer data platforms.


PPC landing page optimization with Brian Massey

In the game of paid search ads, “The player who converts best wins.” Higher conversion rates drive ROAS up, slash acquisition costs, and allow you to out-bid the competition. It’s easy to throw money on ads in an attempt to achieve this goal, but what’s it all worth if you’re funneling users to less-than-ideal landing pages?

Join conversion optimization expert Brian Massey to learn how to invest wisely in your landing pages to drive all of your paid ad metrics deeper into the green. By the end, you’ll have the tools and the confidence to push through winning PPC ad campaigns.


SEO-friendly content marketing training with Michael Brenner

Smart marketers know that SEO and content are essential ingredients for successful search marketing. But even more important is that these two cornerstones work together in harmony.

In this hands-on Master Class, content expert Michael Brenner will equip you with a tactical roadmap that can help get your marketing teams on board with SEO — and help them deliver content that achieves a high level of organic reach, engagement, and conversions.
