Google Analytics 102: How to Build Google Analytics Dashboards like a Boss

The first step toward building a data culture is to make data accessible to everyone in your organization. And since Right-Sized Data is trumping Big Data these days, analytics dashboards are a great way to whittle your huge mountain of data down to a manageable — and actionable — molehill. It is one of the easiest ways you can make data digestible and more fun for every member of your team (yes, I just said fun). I promise: If you build it, they will come.

A dashboard is any way of displaying a data in a meaningful way. It’s not a specific set of data, but rather a framework that you can easily pull data into and make it easier to understand. In this short lesson, we will show you how to create dashboards in Google Analytics using Whole Whale's downloadable dashboard bundle.
