1.Setting Up Google Analytics For Shopify Mobile Apps #

Did you know?

According to Statista, about 69.4% of web users utilize eCommerce applications for shopping.

Having a robust mobile application lets you gain a majority of shoppers floating on the web. Yet simply having a mobile app won’t give you overnight success. You need to craft a strong marketing strategy to captivate your visitors. And crafting an efficient strategy needs thorough planning, which could be acquired with analytics.

App analytics provides you with information about what your users want and need. Many apps appear to be losing users as a result of their failure to listen to their users. Big blunder. The job isn’t done once you’ve acquired the user; your role simply shifts. Now you must delve deep into the user app data to figure out how to keep them engaged and using your app. To ensure user retention, you must constantly upgrade and improve the app based on the experiences and opinions of your users.

Now let’s go through a step-by-step guide to integrating analytics in your Shopify Mobile App.
