The Power of User Analytics for Marketing Teams (and Beyond)

The Power of User Analytics for Marketing Teams (and Beyond)


Try Explo. Customer-facing analytics for any platform

Get started

With user analytics, you can give your customers the data they need in real-time.

If you're a marketing lead, you're probably using Google Analytics to get data to your clients. But that might not be the best answer to your needs.

Integrating a white-label dashboard solution for your customer-facing analytics can be a game changer — for your brand and your UX.

But how do you know which dashboard is right for you (and your marketing team)?

User Analytics in Traditional BI vs. Customer-Facing Dashboards

In case you don't know the advantages user analytics has over traditional business intelligence (BI), here's a quick overview:

Traditional BI has restrictions on scaling, workflow, and customer-facing capacity.

User analytics in customer-facing dashboards surpasses the limitations of traditional BI and improves customer engagement and experience:

  • Grants autonomy to customers through self-service programs
  • Integrates with existing applications
  • Good for user engagement — users interact with data instead of passively consuming it

Visitor Analytics Helps Your Marketing Team Understand Customer Journeys

Your marketing team can use analytics to increase website traffic and improve business. But to do this, they need to know how to interpret the data they're gathering.

That's where Visitor Analytics comes in.

This company's analytics product has the following features:

  • Easy installation for your marketing team
  • User-friendly design
  • GDPR/CCPA-compliant app — Visitor Analytics adheres to security best practices
  • Ability to track web activity and observe each user's unique path across your site

"But what about Google Analytics? Doesn't it do all that?"

Visitor Analytics vs. Google Analytics

You know it, and maybe you love it or hate it (or both): Google Analytics

It's the standard, but let's talk about some downsides:

Platform Privacy

Google tracks all user behavior across its products and services, including your Gmail, Drive, Adsense, Search, etc.

Google uses that data — your data — for its own purposes. Maybe you don't care, but what about your customers? You're sharing insights with them too. Data security is a serious and legitimate concern that can lead to a sales objection.

You don't want to lose a sale over Google's data sharing.

Visitor Analytics is serious about data security. They comply with best practices and emerging laws regarding the security of user data.

Ease of Use

Google Analytics isn't exactly easy to use. Google even takes the old-school approach of offering certification in its analytics platform — i.e., a test (because it's complicated).

On the other hand, Visitor Analytics has a simple, easy-to-understand visual interface designed specifically with end-users in mind.

Data UI and UX

Google Analytics' main menu only offers an aggregated view of your information. It works well for large-scale trends, but what if you're interested in tracing customer journeys?

Visitor Analytics gives you that option. Want to see how your customers are proceeding through your site? Visitor Analytics has that.

Want to see replays of actual customers using your site? Visitor Analytics has that, too — going way beyond the stats to tell a user story.

Platform Integration

Sure, Google Analytics has platform integration. But it'll suck up some of your engineering bandwidth to implement it.

Visitor Analytics integrates easily with any platform, and there's a series of helpful tutorials to assist you. If that doesn't get you there, their team is happy to schedule a call to help out.
