BONUS-3: Google Analytics Phone Call Tracking Set up (31 pages)

If your website has been set up mainly to generate leads through phone calls then you have to attribute phone calls to the correct traffic source.

Understanding exactly which marketing channels and keywords are driving phone calls is invaluable.

Attributing phone calls to the correct marketing channels/keywords means you can increase the budget of the marketing channels/keywords which drive phone calls and reduce the budget of those that do not.

The phone call tracking in Google Analytics let you do that.

2) Learn to send Google ads data to Google Sheets.

Once you have sent Facebook and Google Ads to Google Sheets you can manipulate the data there for reporting purpose or send the data to Google Data Studio.

BONUS-5: Regular Expressions Cheat Sheet for Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager (31 pages)

Regex is an expression that is used to check for a pattern in a string. For example ^Colou?r$ is a regular expression that matches both the string: ‘color’ and ‘colour’.

Regex are very useful while setting up Google Analytics tracking.
