Get More Out of Google Analytics With the Help of These 4 Premium Tools

website analytics

Data is everywhere. But it can be time-consuming to have to gather it from multiple sources and then analyze it to decide the next course of action for your business.

Many of us think of Google Analytics as a clunky platform that is only capable of providing cursory web traffic information and a tool that could use some usability improvements. While much of this criticism is true, Analytics also happens to be a highly customizable platform that plays well with third-party integrations.

Adding tools to your Google Analytics setup, however, gives you the ability to see more information from within a single platform, so you save time and can focus on getting things done. Plus, the data will help you see traffic patterns so you can use them to your advantage—or spot issues before they start impacting your bottom line.

Here are four premium performance measurement tools that integrate especially well with Google Analytics, giving you the power to take action and make meaningful business improvements quickly.

1. Reach out to unknown site visitors with Leadfeeder

Imagine if you could figure out who your website visitors are and connect with them on social media to start the relationship-building process. With Leadfeeder, which integrates with your Google Analytics account, you can reach out to these leads on LinkedIn and connect with them. You can also export the information to build custom audience targeting lists for social media ads.

Leadfeeder works by referencing the IP addresses of visitors. The tool then finds the company that each visitor is associated with and displays this information alongside comprehensive logs of the pages the visitor checks out on your site.

This is valuable data, which is also useful for identifying bottlenecks in your lead nurture processes, so you can refine them to increase conversion rates. Leadfeeder takes just a few clicks to set up, and you don’t need to reach out to your webmaster to install a script to get it done.

2. Track funnel progress with Bizible’s Salesforce integration

If your business uses Salesforce to manage customer relationships, you can get a clearer picture of what’s actually going on in your business by connecting it with your Google Analytics data. For B2B companies, Google Analytics alone doesn’t really cut it, since it won’t show you much in the way of data relating to individual website visitors.

However, if you combine it with your customer relationship management (CRM) software, you can match your data to your leads. You can see everything from device and location to the source, medium, campaign, the landing page and referral source, and split testing experiments and variations to better determine what’s working in order to increase your conversions.

Salesforce does offer its own Google Analytics integration, but if you opt for Bizible’s version, you’ll get even more reporting value. What Google Analytics gives you is usually relegated to only last-click attribution, whereas Bizible includes insights into anonymous visitors, and can even report the first click source when each lead is created. With Google Analytics alone, offline conversion reporting is limited to 90 days from click to close; if you routinely have deals that close after this window, you won’t be able to follow the buyer’s journey. Bizible can also help you with attribution model setup, so your data will show you exactly what you need it to.
