In Google Analytics 4 (GA4), if you’d like to track events (instead of sessions), or you want to learn a new method for tracking conversions, this tweet may spark your interest.
Jessica Malnik’s article, How to Track Conversions with Google Analytics 4: 7 Best Practices, is not just an introduction to this, but also (as its title suggests) gives you 7 good practices that you can use to hone your Google Analytics 4 (GA4) skills.
The Importance of Conversion Tracking
Quite simply, conversion tracking is important because, if done properly, it tells you that something important happened on your site (or app). This can be a download, a sign-up, a sale–something you deem is important.
(Of course, there are many things of importance that may happen on your site, so there are many things you can choose from. I would guess that most people would choose to measure things that show that a visitor is at least interested in something, and is a good future prospect.)
Conversion tracking may be one of the most important features of GA4. I mean, think about it: for some, the ultimate endpoint of business is the sale. (For me, I’d say it’s winning a customer, and keeping them for lifelong satisfaction, sales, and patronage.)
In any case, that’s why it’s important to not just learn this, but to learn how to do it without error.
