Web Business Intelligence
Web intelligence is a combination of web analytics (statistics that display how your web visitors interact with your overall Internet presence), and business intelligence (the process of data mining and analysis in order to understand your customers’ mindset, demographics, and purchasing behaviours).
The challenge is, most marketers and business leaders do not understand the analytical capabilities of their web presence and therefore neglect:
- proper analytical measurement
- proper goal-setting for your web presence
- proper reporting for senior management
As a result your web business intelligence is suffering.
Unlike most other marketing vehicles and tactics, Internet marketing has a distinct advantage with its ability to offer precise analytics measurement towards conversion, return-on-investment (ROI), or return-on-engagement (ROE) metrics.
Using analytics properly aids your company’s business intelligence online. Clickside works with decision makers to establish business goals to measure your digital communiations & marketing programs. Those goals can be measured through your website, Internet marketing, and social media analytics.
