In an earlier chapter we went through the Shopping Behavior Report, which delivers an overview of your sales pipeline by seeing what percentage of visitors to your website get through each stage of the funnel, and where they abandon ship.

In this article we’ll have a look at how to build Google Analytics segments using this report. Using the Shopping Behavior Report to create segments will enable you to analyse the behaviour of groups of shoppers based on where they reached in your sales pipeline.

So for example, if you want to create segments based on people who completed or abandoned the shopping process after major eCommerce steps such as Viewing Products, Adding to Cart, Checkout or Purchase, you can use the Shopping Behaviour Report to achieve precisely this.

You can click on the Shopping Behavior Report chart to identify an area that you want to create a segment from.

While there are a wide variety of segments that you can create from the Shopping Behaviour Report, examples include:

  • All the sessions where the visitor viewed products, added to cart, went to checkout or completed their purchase;
  • All the sessions where the visitor abandoned their shopping process after coming to the shop, viewing products, adding to cart or getting to checkout.

The image below provides an example of analysis derived from the Shopping Behavior Report:

To create a segment of Sessions with Product Views from the Shopping Behaviour Report, you just need to click on the part of the report you are interested in deep-diving and it will automatically populate the segment name. You can enable the segment for any view, or a specific view, depending on how you have your analytics configured.

Creating segments with the Shopping Behavior Report makes it possible to compare different groups of people based on behaviour. It is a simple interface and so it is certainly worthwhile to take the time to create these, regardless of the size of your business. We’ll discuss how to use these segments to get great results in the article How to use Segmentation Analysis to Identify Opportunities and Increase Conversion.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Petra over the last year and a half. 1834 Hotels centralises marketing for over 20 hotels around Australia, all with different branding and websites. On an analytics level Petra’s skills have allowed us to monitor and track our marketing efforts in the digital space. Bringing Petra onboard to manage our Google Ads was one of the best marketing decisions we have made. Her thoroughness and attention to detail is incredible, her insights have helped develop better marketing strategies and demonstrate to shareholders return on investment.

Here at 1834 Hotels we centralise the marketing for many different hotels. It can be an enormous undertaking to monitor and track the performance of each one, especially when they are all on separate webpages.

Petra helped to resolve this difficulty by creating a central hub in Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics with Cross-domain tracking and Ecommerce as well. She created many valuable analytics dashboards and reports that draw from the centralized source. Now that we have all the analytics tracking working it has improved the accuracy of our reporting and the insights have helped develop better marketing strategies.

Petra’s skills and wealth of knowledge is fantastic. I would recommend Petra without hesitation.

I recently worked with Petra to improve my understanding of Google Tag Manager.

Petra not only provided a solid overview of GTM set up and event tracking, she also provided many tips on best practice, and answered the questions that I didn't even know to ask!

Petra is patient, fun to work with, and her analytical programming mind is hell bent on finding the BEST solution to any data, analytics or tracking problem.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.

Hi Petra, Hope you are well, I checked out the Google Analytics and all I can say is AWESOME. You have essentially doubled her revenue in a month and the Google Ads seem to be popping off!
