How to Use Search Data to Improve Your Communications Strategy

Search data is the best and fastest way to understand what your audiences need—and to boost the impact and efficiency of all of your communications. It’s especially valuable now when many nonprofits are seeing an influx of new audiences to their online platforms due to the pandemic. Yet search data is currently under-utilized at most organizations. 

In this recorded webinar, Stefan Byrd-Krueger, our Chief Analytics Officer, shows you the various sources of search data you have at your disposal and what they can be used for. He then explains how you can immediately get started in extracting insights from your own data to inform your communications strategy.


In addition to the information in this webinar, we have a handful of further resources to support your journey to making more strategic use of search data:
