IF YOU WANT CUSTOMER DATA
Google Analytics only tracks
Most people use Google Analytics to look at top trends and overall traffic performance.
At its core, Kissmetrics ties every
action on your website to a person.
Your business is based on real people. Your analytics tool should be, too.
Find any group and their details in Kissmetrics
“It’s great because Kissmetrics provided us the ability to track unique events and segment who the users are and what each user is doing. Google Analytics doesn’t allow that.”

IF YOU WANT MORE ACCURATE DATA
Google Analytics assumes each visit
is from a new person, even if the same
person is on a different device.
Your conversion rate will be unreliable when based on separate visits and sampled data.
When someone uses multiple devices
and browsers, Kissmetrics connects all their data to a single person.
Your data will always be complete - never sampled. And you can rely on your calculations..
IF YOU WANT TO SEE
THE ENTIRE CUSTOMER JOURNEY
Google Analytics will tell you what’s
happening on your website before
Kissmetrics shows you drop-offs
throughout the entire customer journey.
IF YOU WANT INSIGHTS TO HELP YOU OPTIMIZE
With Google Analytics you’ll see
the basics plus a mysteriously-calculated "engagement" score.
But this doesn’t tie to your marketing funnel.
With accurate data on people in Kissmetrics, you can optimize your site at every step of your funnel.
Increase your conversion rates, find roadblocks to your growth and know where to find ready and willing customers.
The Kissmetrics A/B Test Report shows you if your variant truly improved revenue or not.

IF YOU WANT EASY SETUP AND SUPPORT HELP FROM HUMANS
Google Analytics has confusing and contradictory setup instructions, and they won’t give you live support unless
you spend $150k/year with them.
Plans include a dedicated specialist (and clear, simple instructions!) to help you set up reporting and you’ll receive support if you need help down the road via live chat or email with a real person who knows your business.
When should I use Google Analytics?
We recommend using Google Analytics if:
You only want to track visitors and visits. While Kissmetrics can track visitors, it doesn’t make sense to use it if that’s all you want to do.
You want to track simple page metrics. Google Analytics can show you where people are dropping off your website–with no link to how it’s affecting your conversions.
You want to track only sign-up flows or e-commerce
checkout. You won’t be able to track the number of people who put an item in the cart, but you can go with Google
Analytics to see overall numbers.
You need simple, canned reports with limited customization and filtering.
When should I use Kissmetrics?
We recommend using Kissmetrics on your website and app to:
Gather revenue data that can help you make better decisions and understand Lifetime Value.
Go beyond sampled data and engagement to see your actual conversion rate .
Discover your customer acquisition channels.
Track your acquisition funnel.
Document your A/B tests.
Get insights into how your customers are using your product.
