Frequently asked questions

"I'm already an expert on Google Analytics, I need to get up to speed on Matomo as soon as possible. Is it possible?"

No problem, we can consider a training session on one day to make you discover the functionalities of Matomo:

  • Installation and configuration
  • The different reports and dashboards
  • Matomo Tag Manager and differences with Google Tag Manager
  • Configuration of the plugins
  • And always, a Matomo Analytics expert will take care of your most urgent questions

"Are you tackling the more advanced features such as Matomo custom reports, funnels, multi-attribution or e-commerce?"

Absolutely, depending on your Matomo configuration and your needs, we will deal with these points in a practical way in order to answer your questions and real situations.

"We're looking to connect Matomo with Google Search Console or Google Ads, like we did with Google Analytics 4 (GA4). Are these points covered in the training?

These elements and others (Matomo, Google Ads, Bing Ads, Google Search Console or Webmaster Tools) are obviously discussed during the training, their integration with Matomo being specific and essential.

"Why choose your training? I admit that I hesitate..."

The goal of this Matomo Discovery training is to make you autonomous in the use of Matomo Analytics as soon as possible. Whether you have marketing/communication or web development skills. We cover the key points of Matomo from a theoretical and practical point of view, creating bridges between Matomo and Google Analytics Universal Analytics or GA4 if you already have some knowledge of these tools. We carry out a preliminary interview and a pre-assessment questionnaire before the training to make sure of your level. Above all, we deal with your concrete problems and try to solve them during the training (which is more like consulting + training). Finally, the learners are evaluated at the end of the period and we review together the necessary elements. More advanced points (Matomo Tag Manager for example) are also addressed to allow you to go further in the future.
