On July 1, 2024, we celebrate a milestone in the world of digital analytics: Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is turning one! GA4 offered a revolutionary approach to data collection and analysis, built for the future of privacy-centric measurement.

As digital strategy experts, we’re thrilled to see GA4 reaching its first birthday. But the real party starts in July! With a full year of data under its belt, GA4 will unlock a new level of insights for your business.

Here’s why a year of GA4 data is a game-changer:

  • Deeper User Understanding: GA4’s event-based model provides a more comprehensive picture of user behavior across platforms (website and app). With a year’s worth of data, you’ll have a richer understanding of user journeys and identify trends you might have missed before.
  • Smarter Attribution: Move beyond last-click attribution and gain a clearer view of the touchpoints that influence conversions. A year of GA4 data will help you refine your marketing efforts and allocate resources more effectively.
  • Future-Proofed Insights: The world of data privacy is constantly evolving. GA4’s cookieless approach ensures you’ll continue to gather valuable user insights even with stricter privacy regulations.

What to Do Now?

If you haven’t already, now’s the perfect time to:

  • Ensure Proper GA4 Setup: Double-check your implementation to ensure accurate data collection.
  • Start Exploring Reports: Dive into GA4’s user-friendly interface and explore the wealth of data available.
  • Set Goals & Track Progress: With a year of historical data, define clear goals and track progress towards them.
