In today’s marketing world data is more valuable than ever. It helps you make more informed strategic decisions and get you the results you need -- but only if you take action on it. Luckily, Google Analytics (GA) provides concrete data on what’s happening on your website every day and help you find and take down red flags before it’s too late.

“It’s not you it’s me.” You’ve probably heard this phrase a million times in romantic comedies or maybe in your own life, but have you heard that from a client? Probably not. In my experience, you’re more likely to hear “It’s not me, it’s you,” when dealing with a client or customer breakup.
Instagram is by far my favorite app. I constantly check my feed to see what my friends or favorite celebrities are up to.
