Let’s start rocking marketing reporting in Excel!
Excel is a perfect tool for in-depth analysis and reporting. Firstly, it can handle large data files with billions of cells while other online-based spreadsheet tools are limited to millions of cells only. Secondly, Excel offers rich formatting options so you can create simple to understand and visually appealing reports.
And thirdly, the main power of Excel comes from its amazing data-crunching features. Take advantage of a long list of advanced formulas to get insights from your data. This deep analysis will help you see what is performing well and where improvement is needed.
Turning Excel into a Swiss Army Knife for Online Marketing Reporting
Supermetrics for Excel is extremely easy to get started with and it provides all the features you need for successful marketing reporting in spreadsheets. This product has multiple superpowers, let’s find out what those are.
Superpower #1: No more boring manual work
For example, you want to create a stunning PPC marketing report in Excel. Without Supermetrics you would have to manually copy paste the data or download tens of CSVs from each platform and pull those files together. This task is tedious, boring and unproductive, but even more importantly it is prone to human error: one small mistake and your whole report will not be correct.
Supermetrics not only helps automate the process of data collection but also ensures data accuracy to help you get excellent reports with precise numbers in a matter of minutes!
Superpower #2: Easily combine data from multiple sources, all in one dashboard
With Supermetrics you can pull data from PPC, SEO, analytics and many other platforms together into one dashboard in just a few clicks!
For example, you can create a Post-Click Analysis report which combines data from a particular social network where your ads are run together with the metrics from Google Analytics, to see how well the visitors from your campaign converted into paid customers.
Another scenario is to create a Paid Channel Mix dashboard. This report will provide you with the campaign performance overview on different social networks.
Supermetrics for Excel is constantly developing with more data sources being added all the time, so you will be able to create even more advanced reports!
