Good Marketer know that it's not just about what exists on a website right now. It's about what can be changed to make it better - from a conversion perspective, or a user experience perspective, or both.

The ship sped through space with the confidence that the old -but tried and true - tactic would save them yet again (this is going somewhere, I promise).

Google is shoving the start-to-finish picture in your face and saying, "If you want to use our product, you will start thinking about your analytics this way, and you will become a better marketer."

So let's get down to it...
