New month, new updates! In this article, we’ll walk you through the latest product improvements, new connectors, reporting templates, and content.

Skip ahead:

Keep calm and save your historical Universal Analytics data

Let’s address the elephant in the room. If you’re using Google Analytics, you probably received this reminder from Google.

Universal Analytics is going away for good, and so is your UA data—if you haven’t moved them into a data warehouse. Saving historical UA data in a data warehouse helps you:

  • Eliminate the risks of losing important data and reports while setting up your GA4 property
  • Centralize your Universal Analytics data with other marketing data
  • Feed the data to a BI tool like Looker Studio or Power BI for data visualization
  • Perform historical and long-term trend analysis
  • Benchmark the metrics against the new ones in GA4

We’ve put together some useful resources:

Marketing Intelligence Cloud updates

Introducing Supermetrics Storage

The best way to deal with slow Looker Studio reports is to store your data in a data warehouse before visualizing it. However, setting up a data warehouse can be challenging if you don’t have the technical knowledge in-house to set it up and maintain it.

That’s why we’re adding Supermetrics Storage to the Marketing Intelligence Cloud. It’s a secure and easy-to-use solution that gives you the same benefits you’d get from a data warehouse without the technical requirements. You can start building your data repository and experiments with more complex reports without worrying about slow loading time.Supermetrics Storage is opt-in by design, so you can choose which data you want to store. Note that Supermetrics Storage is available as part of the Marketing Intelligence Cloud.

Product updates for Custom Fields

Custom Fields is a data transformation feature in Marketing Intelligence Cloud that allows marketers to customize and get the exact data they need. We’ve made several updates to improve your experience when using Custom Fields.

Custom field templates

Creating custom fields just got a bit easier. We published templates for our most used custom fields, currency conversion, extract text & pick part, and changing date formats. 

These templates automatically suggest what to transform—all you need to do is select which data source from which you want to do it.

Preview window for the ‘Split text pick part’ function

Splitting your text field, such as the campaign name, into multiple parts using the Split text pick part -function is one of the most popular use cases for Supermetrics Custom Fields. To make this even more accessible, we’ve added a preview window to see which part of your text field the function returns before you even create the field. 

Suggested fields

Suggested fields help you find the most suitable fields based on your selected function. You won’t have to search through a long list of metrics and dimensions. For example, if you want to convert your currency, you’ll immediately see a list of different types of budgets you can add to your report.

New early-access connectors

This month, we’re bringing you two new connectors, including:

  • Google Search Ads 360: As Google is deprecating the old Search Ads 360 UI, we’ve released a new Google Search Ads 360 connector to accommodate the change. With it, you can centralize all campaign data across different search engines in one view and uncover insights.
  • Kwai Ads: Kwai (Kuaishou) is a social network for short videos and trends. With this connector, you can pull your ad campaign data from Kwai and report the performance and spending to your reporting tools.

To access these connectors, log in to your Supermetrics Hub, click ‘Connect’, choose ‘Data sources’, and search for the connector you want to try.

Customer success story: How Benefit Cosmetics boosts reviews, analyzes performance, and makes better decisions with Supermetrics

Benefit Cosmetics is a global beauty leader with over 8,000 stores. The team relies on customer reviews to inform its marketing strategy. They pulled review data from Google Business Profile (Google My Business) directly from Google’s API. However, Google deprecated the API, making it impossible for Benefit to get data. They needed to find a solution to maintain the company’s competitive edge.

We caught up with Rebecca Friedberg, Director of Marketing Analytics & Insights at Benefit, to learn how they use Supermetrics to:

  • Analyze reviews and rating data from Google Business Profiles
  • Identify underperforming markets and optimize their presence in every market
  • Streamline data integration process
