If you’re running a Business online, I’m pretty sure you would have used different analytical reports to assess your business. Sometimes you would have also had to share the data with your team, business partners or even your clients.
Sharing your data can be a great way to gain trust with your customers, business partners and even clients. But granting them access to your Analytics account to view the reports can be difficult as your website data is very confidential. That said, you can still share your desired Analytics report with them.
So in this article, I’ll show you how to share your Google Analytics report with others without granting access to your Analytics account.
Instances Where You Might Have To Share Your Google Analytics Data
Every business is data driven and by sharing data with your customers or clients is a great way to build trust with them. Below are few instances where you might have to share your Google Analytics reports:
- Share Performance Reports With Clients – If you’re a marketing agency that handles many clients, then you will have to share your Google Analytics reports to keep them updated on the performance of their websites.
- Keep Team Members And Other Departments Updated – If you work in an Organization or a company, you might have to share reports with other team members or department to keep them updated on different stats without giving access to your Analytics account.
- Form Partnerships With Other Websites – When you plan to form a partnership with another company, you’ll most likely be asked to share your website statistics. So sharing specific statistics is safe and easier.
- Increase Website Conversion – You can convert your website visitor into a buyer by showing them how many people are already using your product and for how long.
How To Share Your Google Analytics Reports
You can easily share your Google Analytics reports with the following four steps and without having to worry about giving access to your Analytics account.
1.Get Weekly Website Stats With Email Summaries
If you’re running an agency and handle many clients, your clients will likely require weekly performance reports of your website.
MonsterInsights Email Summaries easily help you solve this issue by getting important statistics of your website delivered straight to your email inbox.
The reports are easy to read and understand and also lets you know how your website is performing, so you can make better business decisions.
To view your summaries, go to your WordPress dashboard and then navigate to Insights >> Settings >> Advanced and then scroll to Email Summaries.
Here you have an option to add up to 5 email addresses to send out the email summaries to. You can also send out a test email to see how it looks. And the cool part is that you can make changes to the header by adding your own branded logo to give a personal touch to your reports.
And if you own an agency, you can send out weekly emails to your clients with your logo on it so that it adds value to your brand and also it shows your clients how their website is performing.
2. Export Your Google Analytics Reports as PDFs
It is very easy to download any report in a PDF format and share it with anyone if you’re using MonsterInsights.
The old method of downloading your reports was very problematic as you had to spend several hours to fix the formatting. And that’s because the graphs and the numbers would be all over the place.
Now things have changed with the Export PDF Report option which you can find at the top of all your MonsterInsights reports. You can simply click on the Export PDF Report button and get proper formatted report to share with others.
3. Give Permission To View Google Analytics Reports
There might be situations where you might have to give access to your Google Analytics account, so others may see your reports.
The good thing here is that you can control different user roles and allow only a few people to view your Google Analytics reports. You can also control who can save settings in Analytics and who can’t.
Using MonsterInsights, the process is simple and efficient. It also helps you easily manage Google Analytics permissions from your WordPress dashboard.
To do that, just go to Insights>>Settings>>Advanced and then the Permissions. This is where you can see which user roles can view reports, save settings and which roles are excluded from tracking.
4. Share Google Analytics Reports in Other File Formats
Earlier you saw how MonsterInsights allows you to download your Analytics Reports as PDF format. But what if you need the reports in another format to perform more analysis?
In Google Analytics you have the option to export your reports in different formats such as Google Sheets, Excel file or CSV. Once you download your report, you can clean it, format it according to your needs and then share them with others.
To do that, you need to log into your Google Analytics account and navigate to the desired report you want to share. And in the right corner you’ll find an Export option for almost every report in Google Analytics.
Click on the Export option and select the type of format you want to export.
Once the report is downloaded to your computer in your desired format, you can now share the report with your customers or clients easily by emailing them or sharing a Google drive folder.
And this is how you can quickly export your Google Analytics Report and share with others.
