Tyne and Wear Archives & Museums

Google Analytics training

The Tyne & Wear Archives & Museum report on web stats for their nine venues. Their comms team, who do the reporting, use google analytics, but are limited by resources and available time. The sense across the TWAM team was that although they are quite adept at delivering concise stats to their stakeholders, they wanted some help understanding levels of engagement - and, more importantly - what “success” means for each of the venues and across the service.

The training had three parts to it:

> Working with the TWAM team – both face to face and via phone / web interviews to understand and help flesh out their high-level strategy for the venues online – thus helping everyone understand what “success” is, and how we might measure it.

> Helping determine which tools might be of best use to plot trends and easily see, analyse and make their stats available.

> Development of relevant custom reports within Google Analytics to help the team query their stats against success criteria.

Thirty8 Digital developed a Google Analytics workshop for a team of our staff with a wide range of digital competencies. Mike tailored it perfectly to the needs of the group and was a thoroughly engaging speaker/facilitator. What was made this session particularly useful was Mike’s comprehensive knowledge and experience of how to develop digital engagement in the cultural heritage sector. Highly recommended

  • Half it in size. Then half it again.

    I’m sitting looking at my inbox. It’s a bit full – I’ve been away for a week. I’ve done a bunch of culling but in there are three newsletters catching my eye, all from museums or museum related people. Out of interest, I just pasted each one into http://wordcounttools.com. They average 1,400 words each. Here’s my mental […]
