Power Funnels Introduces New Analytics Tracking Dashboard!

50+ Metrics That Will Help You Gain
The Advantage Against Your Competition!

> NOTE: This blog post is focused on our E-COMMERCE clients as metrics will be different compared to our service based clients. 

The blog post for our service based clients will be rolling out the week of January 31, 2022.

We always say to our clients that we’re entrepreneurs and business people, too. We understand first-hand that you have to make a hundred decisions – today.

 

But, the last thing you should worry about is not having the clear-cut data to be able to capitalize on opportunities that could catapult your business to the next level.

 

So, how did we get here? 

 

Since Power Funnels’ inception in 2013, our team has accomplished many great things, such as:

  • Successfully launching over 55 businesses
  • Spearheading 3x New York Times Best Seller launches
  • Working alongside with the top serial entrepreneurs, such as: David Keesee, Melonie Dodaro, Matt Astifan, Dave De Meyer, Mindy Paul
  • And too many other accomplishments to list here! (You’ll be reading for awhile)

If you haven’t noticed already, Power Funnels is absolutely obsessed with client results, superior customer service, and digital innovation.

And, this leads us to the digital innovation aspect of Power Funnels Marketing Agency. 

 

Ever since the Facebook ios-14 update which caused more headaches than one could imagine, we took it upon ourselves to be proactive and to innovate our analytics tracking process to ensure a better client experience, and a clear-cut reporting experience. 

 

This is why we have been working diligently over the past 120 days on testing 9x comprehensive digital analytics tracking dashboards. 

Although, we’ll be honest. It was a major challenge to find a suitable tracking dashboard which supported the variety of services that we offer to our clients. 

 

Through immense research and testing, we finally identified and selected our official comprehensive analytics tracking system, and we’re very excited to share it with you! 

 

Let’s get into it!

Our new analytics tracking dashboard is called Agency Analytics, and it’s been named as one of the top analytics tracking solutions digital marketing agencies which offer upwards of 6+ services such as Power Funnels.

 

 

How it Works: 

  • Before your next performance report date, you will receive an email from our marketing team sharing with your login information.
  • Then, go to the Power Funnels website and you will see in the top right corner there is a “CLIENT LOGIN” button. Click on that button, and a new window will open with your client portal.

 

 
  • Fill in your login information on the client portal page, and then you will automatically be redirected to your analytics dashboard.
 

The first thing that you should see is the “BUSINESS HEARTBEAT” section. (Refer below) 

 

>NOTE: We would like to make it very clear that even though we’ve tested the analytics dashboard in detail, there may be glitches, changes and new features in the dashboards, process and metrics. What you are about to view is Version #1, and as time goes on and we receive client feedback, we will roll-out new versions to better improve our reporting and client experience.

BUSINESS HEARTBEAT:

“BUSINESS HEARTBEAT” as you would assume is the essential heartbeat of your business, showing you the most important data from a quick glance.

 

NOTE:

  • All metrics in BLUE are considered as “healthy” analytics. Healthy = Above industry / vertical average. 
  • All metrics in RED are considered “unhealthy” analytics. Unhealthy = Below industry / vertical average. 
  • By colour coding the healthy and unhealthy analytics, you will immediately discover the areas where there is opportunity, and the areas that need immediate fixing.

 

Included below are the key metrics of your Business Heartbeat and why you should care:

 

  • Gross Sales: The total number of revenue, and does not include deductions of expenses and or overhead.
