Five for Five
Speakers: Florian Giudicelli, Gerry White, Guillaume Lombard, James Cornwall, Paul Cook
This session will allow five attendees to speak for a maximum of five minutes each – time is tight so they will be restricted to one or two ideas only. It is an ideal opportunity for anyone who wants to participate but finds the idea of leading a whole session too daunting. The five slots in this session have been taken but we are still looking for five more people for later in the day.
Speaker: Michael Feiner
Web analytics tools answer the how, where, and when questions. But they’re not particularly good at answering the why questions. That’s where Voice of Customer research such as surveys, polls, usability testing and focus groups come to play. In this session Michael will be focusing on surveys and how you can take your web analytics data up a notch by integrating survey data into your web analytics. It is a painful process at times but you will be rewarded by a wealth of insight you have never been exposed to before.
Speaker: Charles Meaden
Internal or onsite search is ubiquitous these days. However, very few analysts take the time to scrutinise this important customer interaction with their site. Charles Meaden is going to put that right. In this session he will explain why you must analyse internal search data and how to use this data to optimise your site. Don’t be fooled to think this session is all about the search results page optimisation. The implications are far reaching and could impact your content strategy as well as your search engine optimisation and paid search strategies.

Look out for a surprise treat during this session!

Lost in Translation – Understanding Your Business Audience
Speaker: James Gurd, Digital Juggler
As web analysts we think of ourselves as capable professionals.

James Gurd of Digital Juggler will look at the reasons why that happens and what we should be doing to avoid it.
Speaker: Nicholas Redding, Hargreaves Lansdown
What makes for a successful web analytics programme? The answer varies by organisation but some key principles remain the same. In this session Nick Redding, formally Group Digital Analytics Manager at Dyson and now Senior Web Analyst with Hargreaves Lansdown, will discuss three key principles of any robust analytics programme. Namely:
- Team structure – what does a good web analytics team look like? Is a single analyst enough? What skill set, or combination of skill sets, is needed?
- Organisational position – where does web analytics sit in an organisation? Does it belong to marketing, IT, ecommerce, insights or should it be independent?
- Data integrity – how do you ensure sites are properly tagged and data is accurate in an organisation with multiple stakeholders managing multiple websites and marketing campaigns?
Join Nick in what is promising to be a stimulating debate.
