GA4 Implementation Audits
Is it your implementation or is it GA4? We make sure GA4 is configured to answer your most important marketing performance questions.
Common GA4 Issues:
did we install ga4 correctly or is it something else?
Wondering why GA4 data seems so ‘off’? You aren’t alone.
In the last 2 years we’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly with GA4. Sometimes it’s the implementation, sometimes it’s limitations with GA4 itself. Either way, we can help.
Don’t struggle through it alone, we can help guide you through this process.

it takes a village to properly audit ga4
Our service offering provides you with access to a complete set of analytics engineering skills.
Role: Analytics Architect
The design of an analytics system based on business needs, its configuration, the customer journeys that are encompassed, and the function of the website, app, etc.
What data should be collected (including metadata), what events should be collected (and what should trigger their collection), how the analytics system cooperates with other tech that is in use.
How it should be grouped or rolled up to accommodate answering meaningful questions.
Role: Analytics Engineer
The implementation of tracking such that the analytics architecture is translated into a real-world system. The verification of all events, triggers, and integrity of the data both at time of collection and in the destination systems that collect the data.
Role: Data Engineer
The transformation, enriching, and cleanup of data via a series of logical, well-documented steps that provide the capability of a business to trust the output data.
Through this process there should be singular places to get each piece of output data. The logic behind the cleanup processes should be congruent across an organization.
Role: Visualization Engineer
The translation of clean, enriched data into meaningful dashboards, reports, exploration tools that leverage visualization to facilitate meaningful interpretation of data with as few distractions as possible.
Role: Data Analyst
Through the use of dashboards, reports, and exploration tools (which could include ad hoc SQL work), mining for insights (something different than expected or new opportunities).
This can take the form of answering an explicit question from within a business, exploration for the sake of seeking insights, or at the prompt of a monitoring system.
Role: Optimization Engineer
Pulling the learnings from each step in the process our teams come together to create ideas for iterative testing our clients can use to narrow down the cause and effect of the insights discovered in their data.
This allows everyone to move forward with confidence knowing what each lever in the campaign is doing to contribute to increased ROI.
Solution Design Audit
Review analytics people process and tech to propose improvement plan.
Building out the analytics system created during Solution Design.
A certain amount of hours dedicated to resolving a specific issue.
We Provide the Expert Level Service You Need
The days of a single ‘analytics person’ are long gone. No single contractor has the skills in all the areas you’ll need to build an analytics program. We know, we’ve looked.
You need an Analytics Architect, Data Engineers, Analytics Engineers, Visualization Engineers and Business Analysts to properly create, deploy, QA and leverage marketing data.
You can hire firms to run your website through a template checklist of ‘audit’ checks, or, you can hire thought partners to ensure your data is actually creating an impact.
We help uncover areas where you can allocate additional time and attention with confidence, knowing that your investment will have an impact.
Brands That Trust Their Analytics to adMind
Measuring the Impact of Marketing
adMind Analytics is a team of specialized technical and strategic engineers, programmers, analysts and strategists. We don’t just ‘fix reports.’ We work with brands who want to activate their marketing data from traffic acquisition all the way through customer lifetime values. No technology alone can create the specific and strategic plan your business will need in order to get the most from that data, and that is where adMind comes in.
It starts with a call to discuss your business goals and immediate analytics needs. Then we perform a strategic audit to see if you have the right technology to support your goals, if that technology is configured properly and tracking accurately. This often spans a review of your analytics tech stack, acquisition platforms, CRMs and any other tech toys you may have on the shelf.
Once we know your goals and have diagnosed where you sit today we can create a roadmap for building out a proper analytics practice. You may decide to load all that work into a few months or over a longer period of time based on what is important to know now, and what you’d like to build towards knowing in the future.
Better insights, better outcomes.
GA4 is the latest version of Google Analytics, and it’s designed to provide more advanced analytics capabilities compared to Universal Analytics. Unlike Universal Analytics, GA4 uses an event-driven data model that allows you to track and analyze user interactions beyond just pageviews.
Yes, you can use both GA4 and Universal Analytics simultaneously. However, it’s recommended that you migrate fully to GA4 since Universal Analytics is no longer supported.
To set up GA4 on your website, you need to create a GA4 property in your Google Analytics account and add the GA4 tracking code to your website. You can also use Google Tag Manager to implement the GA4 tracking code.
Yes, you can import data from Universal Analytics to GA4. However, not all data can be imported, and there are some limitations to the data that can be migrated.
The Data Streams feature in GA4 allows you to collect and analyze data from different sources and platforms, such as websites, mobile apps, and other digital channels, in a single GA4 property.
GA4 has several features that help you comply with data privacy regulations, such as the ability to configure data retention settings, control user data deletion, and more.
The Analysis Hub is a feature in GA4 that provides a user-friendly interface for creating custom reports and performing advanced data analysis.
Yes, GA4 provides several ways to track offline conversions, such as through the Measurement Protocol API or by importing data from offline sources.
GA4 uses a new method for cross-domain tracking called “enhanced measurement,” which simplifies the process and provides more accurate data.
Yes, GA4 is free to use, just like Universal Analytics. However, some advanced features, such as Data Studio integration, require a paid subscription to Google Analytics 360.
