YOUR FIRST 1000 COPIES: the step-by-step guide to marketing your book by Tim Grahl

How to track your analytics

Thanks for reading Your First 1000 Copies!  Throughout the book I recommend tracking everything you’re doing to make sure it’s working.  Below you’ll find my recommended tools and resources for doing this yourself.

Website Analytics – It doesn’t get better or cheaper (free) than Google Analytics.  It’s easy to install and gives you more than enough information to on who is visiting your site, where they’re coming from and what they are doing once they’re there.

Email Analytics – These should be included in the tool you’re using for building your permission asset.  You can see my recommendation for the right email marketing tool by clicking here.

Spreadsheet – This is the spreadsheet I use with my clients to keep an eye on weekly analytics.  The amount of information that the tools like Google Analytics gives you is overwhelming, so I use this to keep a snapshot of what is going on.  Click here to download.
