Adding Users To Your Google Analytics Account

In order for your PPC campaigns to perform at the highest level, Solutions 8 will need access to your Google Analytics account.

Having access to your Google Analytics account will allow us as an agency to link your AdWords account to it, which will allow us to do a number of really useful things.

For instance, once your Analytics account is connected to AdWords, we will be able to track website conversions as well as the paths user took to complete a conversion.

This is extremely valuable information for us as advertisers and for you as a business owner, because it allows us to spot areas of possible strength or weakness along the customers journey. This will in turn aid in the overall strategy of the PPC campaign.

Pretty neat, huh?

So it is absolutely imperative that we connect your AdWords account to your Google Analytics. In order to do that, you or your webmaster will need to ad us as a user in Google Analytics.

If you aren't familiar with the process, don't worry. Simply follow this step-by-step guide, and you'll see it's as easy as a walk in the park.
