The Magic of Metrics: Using Analytics to Boost Your Business With Brian Sierakowski [Ep. 64]
The best way to achieve success is by capitalizing on your strengths and mitigating your weaknesses. The question is, how do you identify what those strengths and weaknesses are?
This is where your site metrics come into play. Metrics reveal a wealth of information that can help you scale your business and maximize your ROI.
In this episode, we’re joined by Brian Sierakowski, the Director of Operations at Baremetrics, a software that translates metrics into analytics and insights that help business owners make profitable, data-driven decisions.
Brian helps clear up the confusion around metrics by guiding us through which data points to focus on and which ones simply add to the noise. According to Brian:
“If you get your metrics just right, you can craft the data to show you something that gets to a level of specificity. Then the answer to the question of, “What should we do next?” becomes obvious.”
Brain explains how tracking your site metrics can help you make more informed decisions, and how the data that is revealed can help you create effective scaling strategies for your business.
