Best Practice: MindTouch Dashboards for Google Analytics (MT4)

Use Google Analytics and MindTouch to generate a detailed view of your prospect, customer, partner and colleague knowledge activity.

Why should I setup a Google Analytics dashboard?

Each stakeholder plays a different part in the success of your  site and will ultimately measure themselves differently. It's important to keep multiple perspectives in mind when analyzing your MindTouch success.

For instance, you may look at MindTouch to:

  • measure your investment (executive)
  • confirm your team is executing objectives (director)
  • identify high impact tactical steps to improvement (contributor)
  • measure the impact of your knowledge (support manager)
  • educate prospects (sales)
  • seize the market (marketing)
