The Illinois Small Business Development Center, in partnership with the O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce and the city of O’Fallon, will be hosting a Google Analytics Livestream Workshop at O’Fallon City Hall (255 S. Lincoln Ave.,) on Tuesday, March 31.
The workshop takes place from 1 to 2 p.m. with a presentation on how to master Google’s business insight tools. Cost for the workshop is $10 and can be paid online at http://ilsbdc.ecenterdirect.com/events/32267.
Individuals can learn how to use Google Analytics to gain insights about how consumers engage with business online.
