Web Analytics Basics: How to Demystify Your Nonprofit’s Website Training

Your nonprofit’s website is up and running, but have you ever wondered:

How many visitors are coming to your website?
How did they get there?
What actions do they take once they arrive?

Web analytics can answer these and many other questions and our training on December 3 from 10-11:30am at Hands On Atlanta will show you how. During this training, you will learn how your nonprofit can utilize web analytics to collect, analyze, and act on valuable information and data about your website. The information collected through web analytics provides valuable insight into what PR efforts drive most traffic, how visitors use your website, and whether your website is meeting organizational goals. In addition, you will discover free web analytics tools and useful key performance indicators to track progress, so your nonprofit can easily put web analytics into action.

HandsOn tech is excited to have a talented local professional present this training. Meier is a partner at CliXelerate LLC, an online marketing and eCommerce consulting company in Woodstock, GA. She helps businesses and nonprofits achieve online success through online marketing, SEO, and website architecture improvements. Meier also has enterprise-level experience working for companies like eBay and Exodus Communications.

First training of the year: Google for Nonprofits

Our first nonprofit technology training of year 3 was a success! Jelissa and Sara of the HandsOn Tech Atlanta team presented on the Google for Nonprofits program to a group of 20 nonprofit staff, volunteers, and board members as part of the Hands On Atlanta Referral Agency Training. The team discussed the benefits of the Google for Nonprofits program, how to apply, and an overview of what organizations in the program receive. We appreciate all of the positive feedback we received from nonprofit organizations in attendance. We hope that attendees will be able to utilize the Google for Nonprofits program to better fulfill their missions.

This can be your nonprofit!



This year the HandsOn Tech Atlanta Team will work with 33 qualified nonprofits on projects that will implement solutions that will build capacity and generate positive impact. We are currently working with a number of nonprofits and skills-based volunteers to achieve this goal.

The month’s highlight is Transition House, Inc.!

Transition House and the VA Medical Center work together to foster the recovery of men and women in the veteran’s program.

After applying to our program, we were able to connect the organization with a Web Developer, Tyler Horne and later, a Copywriter, David Chesnut. The organization did not have a clear logo or a functional Website. Through Tyler’s connections, a graphic designer created a new logo for Transition House. Tyler is now working with David to finalize the new Website.

This can be your nonprofit!
