After 10 years of data & analytics consulting I still love to create tracking plans – even after the 50th.
🛠 A tracking plan is creating a model for how a website or application works. What user journeys happen? What information is useful for later analysis?
📓 It’s a document you can use as foundation to discuss with all stakeholders, what events are important in your service and especially “how do we name them” – so everyone understands them
🧑🏻🚀 It’s a bit of engineering how abstract I do the events. How much information gets into the event attributes? What is a good amount of events? When do we have to many?
🤓 It’s a written promise of cool data analysis possibilities in the near future. “How cool will it be when I can segment my traffic by…”
