This presentation was given at a Web Analytics Wednesday in Amsterdam. My goal was to inform web analysts that there is more to online than just quantitative data collection. Web Analysts are in the unique position to bundle the insights from quantitative and qualitative data, give structural advice on optimizing a website, even with a small budget or contraint technological means.
By using quick and dirty data collection methods analysts can quickly come to understand the users needs, validate this with analytics, and present management with advice on how to optimize. Guerilla Optimization, in all its glory.
The presentation contains 2 examples of using guerilla techiques using tools such as Wufoo, Usabilla, KISSinsights, Mailchimp and CrazyEgg.
