We’ve covered the basics of Data Studio here, so if you’re new to the platform, then there’s plenty in there to get you started. This eBook will deal mostly with the next step in the process – when you’ve gone beyond the basic Analytics report and are looking for something to offer a little more depth and insight to your reporting while facilitating ease of navigation and understanding for stakeholders.

The importance of collecting data has been made countless times in the digital marketing industry, but what we do with it and how is often overlooked – good reporting can be more than just representing the success or failure of a campaign, it can be an invaluable resource.
