Helping Cath Kidston get trustworthy data from their Analytics account

  • Trust Analytics audit and reconfiguration
  • 2x Training sessions
  • Support With data interpretation

THE CHALLENGE

Modern vintage fashion brand, Cath Kidston, couldn’t trust their Google Analytics data. The account had been set-up to help solve a specific technical challenge – two years on, and that same Google Analytics configuration was now at odds with the brand’s current business goals. And with a different team trying to make sense of data that provided little insight, Cath Kidston needed Red Hot Penny’s Insights team to review the account and validate the technical implementation – and then make sure the Cath Kidston team could get all the information they needed to help grow the business.

THE SOLUTION

Our Insights team audited and validated the technical implementation of Cath Kidston’s Google Analytics account, putting together a measurement plan before bringing the internal team up-to-speed when it came to getting the most out of their Google Analytics data.

100 things to check: The Red Hot Penny Insights team used their faithful Analytics audit process to check 100 different technical implementation factors for Cath Kidston’s account, helping to make sure the architecture was following best practice (it wasn’t).

Introducing best practice: The Insights team worked with Cath Kidston to confirm what they were trying to get from their Google Analytics package to best support the business. We then created a benchmark best practice account architecture that would glean insightful, actionable data, tailored to Cath Kidston’s goals. Red Hot Penny’s Insights team technically-configured the architecture to ensure all the tools were put in place for future success.

THE RESULTS

Data they can trust: Cath Kidston’s Google Analytics account is now set-up to capture data they can trust, and to record exactly what is relevant to the business today.

There when they need us: The Red Hot Penny Insights team continue to provide ongoing support to help get the Cath Kidston team to a place where all the data they are seeing is accurate, and they are able to use and interpret this data to help achieve their business goals.

It’s all in the detail: The entire implementation was documented into technical implementation details, configuration details, and how this new implementation differed from how the team were using Google Analytics previously. The Cath Kidston team now have this document to refer to as a best-practice Google Analytics guide, to help train future employees.

What our expert said

Cath Kidston knew they couldn’t trust their data, and they knew they could trust our Insights team to fix their data. They had a very technical-heavy implementation they no longer understood on coming to us and as a business, they weren’t sure of the value that data was adding. They came to us to get them back on the best practice page, and I think we did just that. The Cath Kidston team are very happy, and we’re very happy.
