Google Data Studio Experts

Michael Taylor

Co-Founder at Ladder.io
I'm a power user of Google Data Studio having transitioned our entire agency (50 employees) across to it from an internal system we built in-house. I have set up many custom reports and dashboards for clients, including connecting to BigQuery, or custom population of spreadsheets as sources for things like cohort analysis. I have built GDS reports for companies like Monzo Bank, Time Out and Booking.com.

Too much data can be confusing and overwhelming – Which is why outputting the right data into a dashboard can save you some stress (and drive better business decisions)

“Had a great chat with Michael regarding app analytics and measurement! I loved his unconventional approach to certain metrics! Very much looking forward to our next call. :))”

“My call with Max was about how to best structure a Google Data Studio dashboard and the dynamics at play. We spoke high-level about conversion attribution models and in passing he mentioned about Google Analytics Enhanced Ecommerce tracking and how using it you can track recurring revenue transactions using UserID and therefore measure LTV across channels. #Mindblown that I didn’t know about this. Silly me, just tracking the first conversion value all this time. As a person, Max is very professional, intelligent, and well-versed in all matters analytics.”

Why talk to Google Data Studio Experts?

Google Data Studio (GDS) is a free data visualization tool that allows you to build interactive dashboards for easy sharing and scheduling of reports.

Most people use Data Studio to track key KPI’s, visualize trends and compare performance overtime. You can easily create charts that bring data to life and keep your team on the same page. Fantastic to present to your whole team (or clients) reports and funnel dashboards that reveal what’s working and what needs improvement.

As part of the Google product ecosystem it’s got excellent integrations with Google Ads, Google Analytics, and Google Big Query. It’s also possible to integrate other tools, although you might have to use third-party connectors like Supermetrics if you want to save some time.

Make the most out of Google Data Studio by talking to experts that use it:

  • If you’re not sure whether you even need Google Data Studio in the first place
  • If you’ve got a bad habit of over-complicating your analytics tools and want to talk strategy before you build dashboards
  • If you’ve got customer data in other systems that you want to pipe into Google Data Studio but aren’t sure the best way to do it
  • If you’re new to GDS and want someone to walk you through how to create a few dashboards before you go on your own
  • If you’re curious about how other startups are using Google Data Studio for inspiration

Whether it’s your first time setting up a Google Data Studio dashboard or you’re an experienced data analyst, it can’t hurt to speak to other GDS practitioners to get their take on how to maximize the impact of this tool (so you’re not just setting up dashboards for the sake of it).

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).
