Last week, the Sharp Ahead team attended the Search London event in support of our sponsorship. There were some stimulating talks covering areas as diverse as SEO in China with Baidu, the importance of accessibility for SEO, and the complexities of managing SEO priorities in larger teams.

Dr John Woods has detailed some of the highlights in our latest blog.

This month we’ll be attending The Marketing Meetup in Leeds where we’ll be presenting how to “decarb” your digital marketing. Plus we’ll also see changes to SharpSpring as they rebrand the platform. You can find full details about both of these below, as well as an important reminder for Google Analytics users.

If you’d like to know more about our events, the SharpSpring platform or our analytics services please get in touch with us – we’d love to hear from you!

Have a great day!

Data & Analytics: We have the expertise to accurately map the right data against your KPIs

End of June for Universal Analytics Retirement 

In less than four months, Google will decommission Universal Analytics in favour of GA4. If Google Analytics is an important part of your martech stack, you need to act now to ensure your analytics setup will continue working as required. Google will proactively swap some legacy tags, but not all. And it’s unlikely that the results of the automatic swap will be satisfactory if you have any non-trivial configuration in place for UA, including key features such as remarketing audiences, event and conversion tracking and reports. Get in touch if you’d like support with the switchover.
