Google Data Studio Partner Connector – Another First for Mediahawk

We’re thrilled to announce that Mediahawk is the first UK-based call tracking provider to have a Google Data Studio Partner Connector.

Data Studio has only been available since late 2018, but has fast become a valuable part of the digital marketer’s tech stack.

Our connector is available out-of-the-box with your Mediahawk subscription. Simply head over to Data Studio sources page and search for Mediahawk.

Every single one of Mediahawk’s 80+ data points is available in your Data Studio report or dashboard.

What is Google Data Studio?

If you haven’t used Data Studio yet, it’s a reporting and dashboard tool that’s fast, and easy to use and share. You can use it to pull all your marketing data together from apps such as Google Ads, Analytics, HubSpot, and Mediahawk. The data can be transformed into visually engaging graphs, and dashboards and reports can easily be shared with others.

You can read much more about it on their support page.

All your data in one place

The tech stack of a digital marketer grows taller by the day. Bringing all that information together in a single place is critical if you want to make sense of it all and create an omni view of your marketing performance.

Data Studio does just that. You can create data sources using Connectors – like the Mediahawk Connector – and then use metrics and dimensions to build reports.

There are useful connectors already available, including Google Analytics, Google Ads, Bing Ads, Facebook, Salesforce, HubSpot, and LinkedIn. You can also work with data in other types of connectors like MySQL databases, Google Sheets, and CSV files.

It couldn’t be simpler to get going. Go to the Google Data Studio page:

  1. Click ‘Create
  2. Click ‘Data Source
  3. Search for ‘Mediahawk‘ and select the connector
  4. Choose your data range
  5. Click ‘Connect

You now have access to all Mediahawk’s data points for your report or dashboard.

Blending data for smarter insights

This is where the fun really starts. You can blend your call data with your other data sources to create highly informative and actionable reports.

Let’s take a simple example: you’ve captured a bunch of leads in your CRM or a spreadsheet from people who’ve called your company and shown an interest in your product – great! Some of them have converted and bought your product – even better.

Blend the lead records with Mediahawk’s call tracking data by using the caller’s telephone number or an ID. You now have chapter and verse about exactly which marketing generated the telephone lead and whether it generated any revenue right in Data Studio. All this is available with no extra work when each new lead is entered into your CRM.

Ready to create your first report?

Get over to the Data Studio site and start building. If you think you’ve created the report to rule all reports, why not share it so that others can make use of it with their own data?
