Join Social Media Club in North Hawaii for Google Analytics Program


Since it began offering public meetings almost four years ago on O‘ahu, Social Media Club Hawaii (SMCHI) has shared their events via live video stream. The streaming events have helped connect social media, PR Communications and marketing professionals working on the outer islands.

Now, to take things to the "next level," I will be hosting a small get-together in Waimea where we can all watch the next Live Stream event, Monday, August 20th from 5:30-7:30pm.

We will be meeting at Conference & Tea Room in Waimea, upstairs in the green "Moon Center" building, above Lava Rock Realty, 65-1298 Kawaihae Road, across the street from Red Water Cafe.

You're welcome to bring food and drinks, but please don't feel obligated to do so. I'll probably pick up a pūpū plate or some poke if a few people register. We can snack and socialize from 5:30 to 6 and the program will start at 6 pm.

Speaking of registration -- please let me know if you plan to attend! Use the registration form below to sign up. That way, I can estimate what size pūpū plate to bring and what, if any, beverages I might want to throw into a cooler. Also, you'll get a reminder the day before with a map to the venue and any last-minute updates if you officially register.

August 20, 5:30-7:30 pm: Understanding Google Analytics

The O‘ahu event will feature three expert presenters showing how to best use Google Analytics on their blogs, including getting social stats. Here, on Hawaii Island, we will watch the live video and have our own Big Island-centric networking and discussion group. There will be a live demo of Google Analytics, and a discussion about the following:

  1. Which stats help your business the most?
  2. Insight about your traffic sources, keywords, time on site, unique visitors, and what these all mean
  3. What "bounce rate" is and why it's important
  4. How to look at social media numbers
  5. Setting up goals & tracking E-Commerce
  6. Q & A Session

If you're a Google Analytics expert living on the Big Island, please come and add your own mana‘o to this event. For example, Brent Norris is one of the top Google Analytics experts in the state, and if he comes he'll have a lot to add. I'm probably going to add my two cents as well. There are many other highly qualified experts living here. The more we get to know each other, the more we can refer business to each other. You can see who the current Google Analytics speakers are here at the SMCHI website.
