Getting to know your customers has been a time-honored tradition for businesses across the world. In the digital age, it might feel like there is a disconnection going on. As a business owner, there are still ways to get to know your customers in the digital world.
How can you tell who visits my website?
There are a lot of analytics and data visualization software out there that can tell you a lot about your website visitors. You can learn how many users visit your website, from what sources, and even where in the world they are coming from.
As part of a comprehensive marketing strategy, learning these details about your visitors is critical. These metrics help fine-tune marketing campaigns, branded messaging, and growing your SEO to reach more people.
Before the digital age, agencies and businesses still took into account a lot of these details. They would estimate how many in-person visitors they had, how they heard about their business, and observed the details about what worked and didn’t work for their conversions.
What are the benefits of getting to know my website visitors?
Marketing is all about staying ahead of the curve and your competition. Learning if your website visitors are in your target market, if they are visiting the right pages on your website, and whether they are visiting from a campaign source like a newsletter or social media post is vital to your business.
One of the major benefits is conversion opportunities. Whether it means more appointments, more sales, or more customers served, you can turn new customers into loyal customers with the right messaging. Some of the most reliable business comes from repeat customers, so make the right moves to convert more new customers to returning customers.
The metrics also illuminate whether your overall brand is resonating with visitors or not. Learn what still works and what needs improvement as time goes on and the nature of business evolves.
What tools are used to track visitors?
There’s a plethora of analytics software that can be fine-tuned to a business’s digital marketing needs. The usual contenders are from Google and Facebook since those are two of the most popular platforms on the internet. Knowing how to harness their powers requires some careful thought and communication between business and marketing agency.

One of the most well-known online advertising platforms allows businesses to grow by reaching the right customers. A step in the right direction for any business is to grow a reliable audience and Google Ads provides methods to pinpoint those audiences for businesses.
