The community-wide event will feature free school supplies and a brand new backpack available for families enrolled in InspireNOLA Charter Schools as well as students enrolled in New Orleans public schools.

High Level Speech and Hearing Center offers tools to change that through a team of seven speech pathologists and audiologists, currently ranked among the top eight in New Orleans in 2018. High Level Speech and Hearing partners with schools, daycare centers, and nursing homes, bringing screenings to those who need them most. This is a free community event open to all families enrolled in InspireNOLA Charter Schools as well as students enrolled in New Orleans public schools.

Aug 16 Muffins and Metrics: Marketing Meetup

If your job, passion or business involves setting up, managing or interpreting web analytics, Google analytics, and marketing metrics, this month’s meetup is for you!

 

This meetup is designed to bring a variety of business analytics users (Marketing, Sales, Consultants, Webmasters, Bloggers, Entrepreneurs, Managers) into the same room to share information and learn more from each other about the data available to all of us and howe we are using them in different ways as marketers, managers, sales and business owners.

 

Guided discussion of the most powerful, free tool to track, analyze and report your web site’s data. According to the HubSpot’s State of Inbound report, 63% of marketers stated that their top challenge was generating traffic and leads, followed closely by proving the ROI of marketing activities. These two things are not mutually exclusive, and with tools like Google Analytics (GA) at your disposal, the only limitation is how you are using them.

 

Topics that are fair game for discussion:

  • General website traffic, Google Analytics, email marketing, podcasting, mobile applications, social media, business intelligence tools, ppc campaign data, webmaster tools, retargeting campaigns, and other traditional or digital sales or marketing efforts.

  • Tracking the untrackable

  • Other data sources and combining information

  • Stories told by the data?

  • Spotting anomalies (jumps or dips in traffic, why, what to look for)

  • What to track and why

 

What you should bring:

  • Your questions!

  • Your specific issues

  • How you’ve solved data inconsistencies/issues

 

Who Should Attend: Marketers, Product Managers, Brand Managers, Bloggers, Business Owners and Webmasters and anyone else who wants to capture, understand and benefit from the increasing amount of valuable web analytics and marketing data capable of being analyzed.
