Topics to be covered include how to understand marketing metrics, what tools you should use to measure analytics, which metrics you should pay attention to, and how metrics should inform your marketing efforts.

Panel experts come from both within and outside of the AAUP community, including a business, marketing, and PR consultant who leads the social media strategic planning process and the creation of detailed success metrics dashboards for corporate clients.

Panels will cover:

  • Using web analytics to redesign your website, as well as understanding Google Analytics

  • Analyzing university presses' marketing metrics to find trends
  • Highlighting what university presses are doing right and which areas need work
