National Geographic Google Analytics Case Study
Complex Analytics Upgrade
The National Geographic Society is an educational organisation focusing on anthropology, history, culture, and the sciences. The company runs one of the most popular sites in the world and has millions of monthly visitors.
The digital marketing team at the National Geographic website needed to upgrade an old, heavily patched in-house GTM system. They needed to upgrade the system because they were struggling to understand what visitors to the site were doing. This limited revenue potential from the site.
The National Geographic website required a significant amount of work. The various sites used an old, heavily-patched inhouse system. They wanted to transfer to a newer, better functioning Google Tag Manager. More than 500 tags would need to be transferred.
There were also six individual CMS systems that had to be compiled into one! The process had faced delays due to its complexity. This meant the task needed to be completed within just three-months.
The goal was to create a website that could function and provide the business insights the digital marketing team needed. Accelerate first reviewed overlaps and functionality issues present in the existing Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics accounts. We eliminated duplications, resulting from badly organised naming conventions, and reduced the numbers of triggers and tags by more than a third.
Another major task was improving the website management. We needed to move content from six CMS onto one while keeping the site accessible to users. During the transfer, page edits were limited. This ensured no information was lost. Standard trial procedures, including A/B testing and other methodologies were then used to improve CRO.
To guarantee against problems, failsafes were installed. Thankfully these didn’t need to be used. Finally, staff training sessions were held for key personnel so they understood how to use the new consolidated system. This was all done within just three months.
As a result of this work, National Geographic had improved oversight on what was happening across the website. The enhanced system means that the digital marketing team could run remarketing campaigns, there was better revenue tracking, and reports could be created faster than before. As a direct outcome, National Geographic managed to increase site revenue and identify and resolve UX issues faster.
Tipico.de Case Study
Tipico.de is a German website, and one of the most popular and profitable betting websites in Europe. The business is based in Malta, with prominent branches in Germany, Croatia, Gibraltar, and Colombia. With a significant amount of operation, the company wanted to improve conversion rate monitoring and increase search engine rankings for Tipico.de.
The company was operating multiple Google Analytics and Google Adwords accounts. This situation meant it was impossible to accurately determine a baseline for the number of people who were registering with the system from the website. They were also unable to determine where visitors had come from, and what the conversion rate was from each channel.
After KPIs and objectives were agreed on, Accelerate began a three-month contract with Tipico. The majority of the work involved clean-up initiatives and consolidating how the website functioned. The ultimate goal was to substantially increase the number of people registering through and using the website.
The first stage of the evaluation involved reviewing their Google Analytics account, which was previously a Google Analytics premium account. The account was adapted to meet their business needs. We then centralised and consolidated 40 different Google Tag Manager accounts into one place.
One concern was a need to identify where website traffic originated. Tipico believed that 50% of traffic was direct, but this figure was the result f inaccurate data collection. Therefore, we enhanced the site’s Google Analytics, which indicated in clearer terms how people got to the site and engaged with the content.
The Accelerate team also conducted training sessions to ensure staff could monitor and alter the Google Analytics and Adwords functions according to their needs. We offered support in using tools such as the Datastudio dashboards to visualize data, to demonstrate how the site was operating to their management.
The work was completed within three months, in the required timeline and within budget. By helping the company determine where their customers were coming from, Tipico immediately saved an estimated USD 75,000. Further savings and revenue increases resulted from having a clearer overview of what were the most effective marketing channels for the company.
