Have you ever:
- Felt frustrated by the lack of clarity in your website analytics data?
- Known that your social marketing was effective but not sure exactly which part?
- Wished you knew which marketing efforts produced the best tours?
It’s incredibly frustrating to try to make major decisions without accurate and specific data, especially when it comes to online marketing. That’s why tracking should be a critical piece of every Montessori school’s marketing strategy.
