Google analytics is without a doubt one of the best tools available today for marketers. It is a tool that will not only increase your potential for sales, but it could actually increase your sales.  That’s right, you could actually use Google analytics to make sales rather than just set up potential leads.

While Google analytics is available to everyone, not everyone is certified in the program. You don’t have to necessarily be certified to use the program, but when you do get your certification, it shows that you are credible. It’ll verify you are a certified user of the program with official knowledge from Google. How does one go about getting certified?
