Only £250 for a half day
I can run a bespoke training course based on your analytics needs. Most people don't really need to learn the full features of GA4. A short one-on-one session with me is all you need. Even total beginners are confident in using GA4 after a session with me. I explain the basics in a way which is easy to understand and cut out a lot of the fluff.
There are many videos on YouTube that give an overview of GA4 free. I would recommend Julius from Analytics Mania. He does fantastic videos and you can learn everything for free just by watching his videos. He does a paid course as well in case you need more structure.
At the heart of my bespoke GA4 training is the idea that you should learn by doing. That's why I believe in incorporating hands-on practice into my training sessions.
This is split over 2 days of around 1-2 hours a day. The aim is rather than to teach GA4, I will just show you what you need to measure events on your site you care about.
All I need is your site and a list of events you want to track. I can also suggest events to track if you are totally new to analytics.
I will list things I will teach you specifically to your needs. There really is no need to learn everything in GA4. For most people just recreating their reports in GA4 will suffice.
Due to client feedback, I have introduced a semi-bespoke training session. This is split over 2 days too. Day 1 is a standard explanation of GA4/ Tag Manager and walkthrough of the UI. I will guide you through a real-life set up, either your own site or a dummy site.
The second session is a Q&A and any outstanding issues from the first session. This training is more for beginners who want an overview but don't have the time to watch a lot of Youtube or read the documentation.
Optional/ Advanced Topics
I can go through e-commerce via woo commerce and reports in Data Studio. I can cover any topic related to analytics or SEO.
GA4 is Actually Simpler than Universal Analytics
Don't believe the hyperbole on Twitter. GA4 is simpler and better in almost every way. Once you have been through my custom training session, you will understand.
Costs – £250 for half a day
The cost of this training is £250 for up to 4 hours of training (2 days, 1-2 hours each). All this is done over Google meet. Other bespoke training providers will charge 4 figures for similar training. I made a business decision to target a lower price point. Its easier to sell 4 courses at £250 each than one at £1000. Some will charge 4 figures for off-the-shelf training.
The session is split over two days to give you time to digest and put into practice what you have learned. Its a much more efficient use of time than one big session. Also, as GA4 takes 24 hours to process the data, certain things won't show up in the reports until 24 hours later so you wouldn't be able to see everything in one session.
The cost is per course, so if you are an agency or have multiple people to train, then it's exceptional value. For example, a course at Brighton SEO will cost more than double per person and be off the shelf. You will still need to go back and implement the stuff on your own site.
Follow up support
After completing your bespoke GA4 training session, I want to make sure you have everything you need to start using GA4 effectively. That's why I offer follow-up support to all of my clients.
If you have any questions or run into any issues while using GA4, just reach out to me and I'll be happy to help. Whether it's a quick question or a more complex issue, I'll do my best to provide you with the support you need to get the most out of GA4.
Online GA4 Training Courses of note
If you have the time, online generic training is the best value for money. You can probably learn everything you need from just watching free videos on Youtube but if you want some structure, you could check out some of these courses. I've not personally done most of them but I have heard good things about them.
Check them out and see if you want to learn Google Analytics or if you just want it to tell you how your website is doing. If it's the latter, you probably are best off with a bespoke training session from me.
You should find a course that suits your pricepoint in there. They should all end up giving you the same information in the end. You can't really go wrong with the Analytics Mania or the Loves Data Courses though. They give so much value on Youtube, I sometimes feel I should sign up for a course myself to pay for them.
