Ecommerce : How do you track your KPIs?

In a previous article, we talked about how important key performance indicators are to evaluate the profitability of your website. Today, we would like to talk to you about how you can use a specific tool to monitor your data, track its evolution, compare reference periods, analyze the relevance of your offer, share the information from these KPIs internally and react quickly to any problems.

Marketing performance indicators and sales performance indicators are essential to ensure the effectiveness of your offer and the proper functioning of your site. Therefore, the number of unique visitors, the time each visitor spends on your site, the number of pages viewed, the bounce rate or the increase of your customer/prospect file all require your attention, as well as the conversion rate, the average shopping cart amount, the abandonment rate, the lifetime value of a customer, the customer retention rate, the return on investment, etc.

How do you track your KPIs?

Share your KPIs

KPIs are essential data, but they are generated by different tools. With Google Analytics, or an equivalent solution, you can measure the traffic on your site and learn more about  your customers' behavior. As for the data related to sales, they are stored in the back office of your e-commerce software. There are several modules that can centralize and synchronize all your data in order to process them within a single interface, without you having to go through all of the tedious manual steps.

Get easy access to KPIs

In order to be reactive, teams need to have easy access to data, a simplified and instantaneous reading of this data, which can then be easily processed and communicated So a tool specifically designed to manage KPIs makes it easier to read them, usually via a dashboard displaying the most important indicators, both in terms of traffic and sales, as well as animated graphs detailing the evolution of your business by day, week or month.

Simplicity & a better insight

The main advantage of a data synchronization tool lies in the simplicity of comparing the various items, correlating the audience and visitor behavior indicators with the customer data. This allows you to analyze trends by period, using historical data, and to go into greater depth and detail, easily and efficiently.

Share your KPIs

When the tool is installed in the back-office of your e-commerce software, all the relevant teams can access and use the information. Automated reports and the ability to export data from different sources in the same format makes data manipulation much easier. This saves time for your analysts, who can focus more on corrective and evolutionary solutions that will benefit your business.
