Google Data Studio is a powerful tool that turns data into reports that ease decision-making and lead to better business outcomes. Google Data Studio is easy to use, free and works seamlessly with applications within and outside of the Google Marketing Suite. You can use Google Studio to connect and integrate data from 100’s of applications including Facebook, Constant Contact, GoogleAds, and more. You do not need an advanced background in data, statistics, or graphic arts to create meaningful reports that tell data stories, improve understanding of complex situations, and allow users of all skill levels to analyze data. By the end of this project, you will learn how to create an account, how to navigate the platform, and will create your first report! Together we will explore the basics of business data and visualization and you will surprise yourself with how easy it is to understand and use data.
