Top 10 Best Tools for Digital Agencies

Digital marketing tools vary. Some tools are more suited for certain strategies than others. While it’s important to have the best tools in your digital marketing toolbox, it’s crucial to understand that it’s the marketer that makes the strategies and not the tools that make the marketer. Nevertheless, if you’re going to use tools, you should use the best that expedite quality result delivery. I’ve curated a list of tools that digital agencies and marketers can leverage to stand out from the crowd.

1. Google Analytics

When it comes to website analytics, Google Analytics is the gold standard. It shows you metrics on where your visitors come from, how they interact with your site, and what drives conversions for you. Every digital marketer should have some level of Google Analytics expertise.

Beyond that, you can set up goals to build an enhanced eCommerce setup, and track events to learn more about user engagement. Google Analytics is free. All you need is a Google Analytics account.
