Getting insight from research and analytics
Industry research and your own website analytics are essential tools for planning marketing and communications activities. We regularly write about recent and relevant industry research to help you better understand your audience, determine your channel selection and–most importantly–create opportunities for meaningful interactions online.

While it’s important to keep up to date with industry research, you should also be visiting your own analytics regularly to do research and develop some insights about your customers. Your own data can tell you whether your online platforms are useful to your target audience and if the site is easy to navigate.
