Analytics is an essential part of any digital or social program. It gives you the cadence on how your program is doing, whether you are meeting your goals and if your customers are happy. In this week’s (inaugural) Voce Nation Podcast, I chatted with my co-worker, John Gilloly, whom I always go to whenever I have a measurement question and whether the content I’m publishing is making a dent in the client’s overall program. John’s official role is the VP of Analytics and Measurement West Coast based out of San Francisco. His dad was a sports writer yet vows to this day that he hates anything with sports, especially watching. Listen below and comment with your questions on analytics.
