Hey guys, listen up! Wouldn’t be helpful to be able to share WordPress site data with your clients, your partners, and your team members?
Did you know that exporting data is a native function in Google Analytics?
Come, come, let me be your analytics guru one more time and tell you exactly how to quickly export your WordPress analytics with Google Analytics but as usual, we are using MonsterInsights.
We know that sharing data is a great way to earn the trust of our customers and clients. Just the other day I got hired to do a job and the client asked to see my work. They wanted solid data and evidence that I knew what I was doing and thankfully I had it.
However, the one issue is that when sharing your data through analytics you may have to give them access to your Google Analytics account. And that’s a risk I’m not sure you will be willing to take.
Neither does MonsterInsights.
In this article, I’m going to show you how to share your data with your clients without compromising your privacy and it’s not as hard as you think.
Top Reasons for Sharing Google Analytics Data
Sharing your data convinces people to come to your side and shows that you know what you are doing or talking about. You gain the trust of many by showing your solid statistics.
So you may share data in order to keep your clients updated on their site’s performance or you can share data with your team members to update them on different statistics without granting them access to your Google Analytics account.
If you are forming partnerships with other websites, they will no doubt need to see your website statistics, or even if you are selling a product and you want to increase website conversions, turning that potential customer into an actual buyer, then your data will surely come in handy.
And these are just a few reasons why we share our statistics but you want to do it safely and easily and that’s where MonsterInsights comes in.
Export Reports as PDFs
With MonsterInsights you can easily download your reports as a PDF file and then share them. With the Export PDF Report button on the top of your reports. By simply clicking the button you can properly format your reports to share them with others.
Export Reports in Other File Formats
So you want to perform more analysis and need your reports in a different format? Using Google Analytics you can export your reports as Google Sheets, Excel file, or CSV format.
When you log into your Google Analytics account, go to the report that you want and at the top right corner, you’ll find Export. Simply click and download your data and then clean it up. Format it and share them.
Sharing Saved Reports
Saved reports are when your settings are already applied to the reports and this saves time.
Since your saved reports are only available to the person who created them, you need to go to Customization > Saved Reports and choose the report you want to share, and choose the Share button.
When the screen popups enter the email addresses of your clients or partners that you are sharing the report. You can also choose what format they will see the report in.
Click Send when you’re done and there you have it, you have successfully shared your saved Google Analytics report.
