Event Wrap Up: Understanding Google Analytics August 20, 2012 #SMCHI

What an incredible night packed with great presenters and great audience questions!

Understanding Google Analytics was a hit!

Over 150 attended this event either live or virtually. We had two satellite events on Maui and Big Island. Phew! We’re already talking about the next Google Analytics event we’re going to hold, probably a deeper dive one of the areas covered last night. By the way, we chose this event based on attendee requests and feedback. If you’d like to suggest a particular area, please let us know.
