“I am a huge fan of the Analytics for Agencies course. I had a pretty good basic knowledge of GA4 (emphasis on “basic”).

The cost of KP-Playbook has already paid off! Yeah!!”

“I was completely intimidated by the learning curve required to transition to GA4. The Analytics for Agencies course was the best investment I could have made. The go-at-your-own pace tutorials and ready-to-use templates enabled me to learn while doing. With the help of this course, I was able to get our clients up and running with GA4 in a fraction of the time, and at a much higher level of quality than I would have been able to produce on my own.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely and we do already have people who work in-house taking the course. When we say “client”, think about your company’s leadership — they are essentially your clients! Depending on the size of the company that you work at, you may already be wrestling with multiple analytics properties, like an agency would. Plus our bi-weekly office hours and community give you opportunities to ask specific questions.

  • Each lesson is in video format with screen-sharing, closed captioning and transcripts (currently in English only).
  • The majority of video lesson are voice-over screen recordings that include demos so learners can see step-by-step how to complete a task.
  • There are also  additional resources (documents, pdfs, etc) and suggested further reading URLs provided in every module.

When you enroll in the Analytics for Agencies course you get:

  • Instant access to all video lessons (90+),
  • Live Office Hours to ask implementation questions and get help directly from your instructor, Dana DiTomaso,
  • Community hosted in Circle where you can connect with other leaners and ask questions
  • Client-ready templates, a complete guide on GA4, Google Tag Manager, and Looker Studio!

I<3GA4 (😉 secret code)

No! Feel free to jump around the course and watch the lessons that you are most interested in first or start with areas that you’re struggling with. It can be a choose your own adventure learning experience.

We’ve broken up the videos to make it easy for you to find specific how to items instead of having to search through an hour-long video.

Related lessons are always mentioned and linked to in a resource as well, and if you start a lesson with supplementary content we’ll always reference the other lessons in our Resources section.

The Analytics for Agencies course consists of 11 modules with individual video lessons. Modules include templates, additional resources, tool recommendations, and suggested further reading for those who want to dive deeper into a subject.

Yes! You don’t lose your access at all, even when you’re done. Office hours can still be attended, you can engage in our community, and you’ll continue to get course updates.

No minimums are required! We have people taking the course who have just one or a few clients, all the way up to larger agencies.

You definitely don’t have to use Looker Studio. The reporting templates we supply are built in Looker Studio but you can take our recommended reporting elements and build a dashboard in any other tool using our template as a guide. We also cover GA4, which is useful no matter what 3rd party reporting tool you use.

You do not need to have GTM experience. The videos cover how to use GTM and walk you through how to implement our default container step-by-step, plus we’ll be adding a GTM reference module to the course. That reference module will help you create your own tags/triggers/variables that we don’t cover in our default container or in our How To module.

You don’t need to be able to code at all — but being able to look at HTML and be able to determine what class or ID an element has will help. We have a recommended tutorial in the Community to check out.
