Introducing Google Analytics Premium

Nearly 6 years ago, Google changed the world of Web Analytics and Online Marketing with the release of Google Analytics – free.  This move began what I see as a revolution and evolution in web analytics by making advanced web analytics tools available to anyone – simply put, making “democratization” of data a reality.  No longer was having data and analysis tools limited to the “elite” marketers at big companies with big budgets – anyone could have great data and do analysis.

Well, today, everything has changed, again.

Why change a good thing?

I’ve been doing Google Analytics consulting since the product was originally released and over those years, the price of “Free” has actually been a barrier in some cases.  Why?  There are many reasons that I’ve heard from companies.  Often they include mis-information about limitations of the free version of Google Analytics, or concerns about the lack of a contract, fiscal relationship, SLA, and support.  If you’re a small business these things are less important.  However, if you’re a large company or just anyone who puts value in an SLA, support, a contract, etc… then the free version does have some drawbacks.

What does Google Analytics Premium Include?
