Hear what people are saying...

Most knowledgeable GA trainer in the domain, period.

By Zach Day, Sr. Manager Digital Analytics & Strategy, Salesforce

"Krista is the most knowledgeable Google Analytics trainer and educator in the domain, period. What especially differentiates Krista is that her expertise extends beyond just knowledge of the tool. From her time as a web analyst, digital analytics evangelist, Google Analytics product manager, and executive, Krista understands digital analytics from many perspectives. Because of this broad experience her training is very well-rounded, ensuring that users learn how to generate actionable insights and answer key business questions rather than just creating data dumps."

Actionable & Accessible!

By Oli Gardner, Co-Funder, Unbounce

"Krista is one of the few who can make Google Analytics accessible to everyone, always sharing actionable insider tips and custom reports. AND, she's a remarkable role model for diversity where she volunteers her time to coach women in marketing to stand up and speak."

Practical, Tactical Learning!

By Jim Sterne, Founder, Digital Analytics Association

"Krista's style is at once self-confident and transparently vulnerable. Audiences hang on Krista's presentations as they are a perfect balance of practical, tactical advice and insightful, life-affirming guidance. She's been there, done that, and knows how to help others through her stories and and hands-on experiences."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the format of this course?

    This course is run in an On Demand format. Lesson content is available as pre-recorded videos, so that you can watch and learn at your own pace. It is recommended that you go through the content of the course over at least 3 weeks to give yourself enough time to digest the content and apply your course learnings. You can attend monthly office hours hosted by Krista to get answers to your most burning questions in real time. There is also a Slack community where other students and Krista will be active throughout the course to help answer your questions.

  • How is this course different than the Google Analytics Academy courses?

    In terms of course curriculum, Krista Seiden wrote both the Analytics Academy courses for Google, and her own Google Analytics Masterclass and Google Analytics 4 courses, and can assure you that the content is quite different in depth, style, and delivery. The Analytics Academy courses are great, but they stick to high level concepts and do not go into a lot of real life examples. In KS Digital Academy's courses, we go through many real life examples, using both slides decks and direct interaction with the GA UI, to help you really grasp the concepts and how to use them.

  • GA4 is constantly changing, will the course be updated?

    Yes! As GA4 grows and matures, KS Digital Academy will continue to release new modules to ensure you are up to date with all the latest info. You can come back anytime during your course enrollment to review the new content.

  • Can I upgrade to the full Reporting & Analysis course?

    Yes! If you'd like to upgrade to the full Reporting & Analysis course after completing the introductory course, we'll provide you with a discount code to get the full introductory course price credited towards your enrollment in the Reporting & Analysis course.

  • How long will the course materials be available for?

    You will have lifetime access to course materials after you enroll so that you have enough time to complete all of the curriculum at your own pace and earn your certificate of completion.

  • I'm an Adobe Analytics user transitioning to Google Analytics, will this course help?

    Yes! Krista has personally worked in both tools, and trained many analysts making the switch, so she knows first hand some of the questions you may have and will do her best to answer them in the course content and throughout live Q&A and Slack. Check out the testimonial from Zach Day of Salesforce at the bottom of the course page for direct feedback from someone whom Krista helped train to switch from AA to GA360.
