If you’ve been considering doing content analysis and reporting for your e-commerce business, don’t wait another day. You see, when it comes to e-commerce content marketing, having good reporting and analysis to back it up is the best way to track results. If you want to grow and improve, this is the way to do it. Let’s talk a bit more about it and what you need to look at in order to be successful.

Content Analysis and Reporting

No matter how perfect and flawless your content marketing efforts may have been, know that there will always be room for you to change and improve. You’ll find that some content is outrageously successful and drives fantastic results, while others seem to fall flat and deliver very little. Use every opportunity you can to analyze what you’re doing and improve your strategy.

As a content marketer, it’s important to understand how to track your efforts and see what is driving success and what is bringing challenges. How can you do this, though? You need to know what to analyze.

What do I Analyze?

Now you know you need to analyze your efforts, but what should you be focusing on? The task can feel overwhelming. There are many different directions you could go, but we recommend sticking to some core metrics, metrics that are frequently used to measure success. 

Look at Traffic Metrics

One of your main goals is to drive traffic to your site, right? That’s one of the reasons you’re creating and publishing content. Measuring how effectively your content is driving traffic is definitely something you will want to keep an eye on and often brings with it a lot of helpful details. A few things you’ll be able to see include:

  • Page views
  • Average read depth
  • Visitors to specific pieces of content
  • Time spent on page
  • What the bounce rate is
  • Conversion rate

Content is Key

It should be clear from above that in order for a customer to research, consider and purchase a product online, they need content all along the journey to help them make a decision on what to buy based on their needs. Blogs, website descriptions, and reviews are all critical things to have in order to sell more. The content creation process can take time, money, and more manpower, but it’s worth it.

Once you scale and optimize your content, you’ll find that there are some other key benefits to content creation that will show tangible results. These are both satisfying and will be easy to measure.
