Google Analytics workshop I
Measuring the effectiveness of marketing and sales efforts is essential if you want to establish a correct business strategy. In recent years, digital marketing has revolutionised the market, generating new business opportunities at more affordable prices than traditional marketing.
Studying user behaviour is fundamental to be able to design effective and profitable actions. In the digital world, the only way to understand user behaviour is through data.
Web analytics is one of the most in demand skills today. The demand for professionals capable of optimising and improving the results of websites has increased in marketing departments in recent years.
Google Analytics is the most used tool by professionals in the sector, as it allows them to follow the interaction of users with the website in real time through dashboards. In addition, the tool integrates perfectly with the rest of Google products, which facilitates the day-to-day work for those who are used to utilizing the applications offered by this giant of the technology industry.
The overall objective of the workshop is to introduce the student to the measurement tool. This workshop aims to familiarise the student with the basic concepts and notions for the configuration of campaign tracking, such as implementing a tracking code or configuring data filters. During this workshop, students will learn how to interpret basic audience, acquisition and behaviour reports, obtaining an overview of the process.
The design of the studies has involved the definition of the general and specific competencies that students must acquire through the workshop. The design has been governed by the principles of an integral conception of teaching and its educational offer has been planned in such a way as to facilitate student learning. Likewise, its curricular organisation is based on interdisciplinary criteria, with the aim of the student acquiring the knowledge and competences of his or her specialisation, as a manager in the professional field corresponding to the specific sector in question.
The objectives of this workshop are the following ones:
- To provide students with the necessary knowledge to be able to interpret the results obtained after the campaigns.
- To promote the initiative of analysis and decision-making based on the management of real utility data.

Practical exercises will be carried out under the guidance of the teaching staff so that the knowledge acquired will respond to the real day-to-day needs of the subjects covered in the workshop.
The teachers will be actively involved in the learning process to strengthen the link with the students and provide support in order to resolve doubts and raise scenarios that contribute to the student learning to generate ideas “out of the box”.
This workshop will be taught in a face-to-face format, with a total of 10 hours of classes, and computers provided by TTS will be available to achieve a complete learning process and to put into practice the examples and case studies presented by the teaching staff.
The dynamics of the Content Plan workshops are not based on lectures, but rather on a model of continuous interaction in which each participant can express themselves and feel part of the team. In this way, each person contributes to the generation of ideas and debates take centre stage, based on the theme of the workshop in question.
As a result of the workshop, a practical level test will be carried out to evaluate the knowledge acquired by the students.
