About Google Analytics
Google does a lot of good for us as marketers. Analytics, for example, is an essential part of any marketing campaign. To improve your strategy, you need to see areas where you are succeeding and the areas where you can do better.
This is where Google Analytics comes in. Google Analytics is the most popular tracking tool to monitor visitor traffic and behavior, page views, sessions, bounce rates, on-page navigation paths, visitor demographics, landing page performance, conversion tracking and e-commerce sales. It’s a tool that gives you the insight to grow your business.

Then follow these simple steps:
- Click the Google Analytics Admin option in the bottom left-hand corner of the dashboard.
- Click on Property Access Management
- Click on the “+” icon in the top right corner/Add Users
