Introduction to Showell Analytics

With Analytics you can identify trends on content usage, user activity and group performance in the past days, weeks, months or years.

For Users: Analyze your Shares

Share analytics provides valuable tracking information that allows you to gauge the level of interest your prospects and customers have in the content you share. By identifying the most popular content, you can focus your attention on what is truly interesting and worth following up on. Analyzing how potential buyers perceive the shared content enables you to continuously refine and customize your share links.


With Share analytics, you can:

  • Identify who has viewed your share
  • Determine when they viewed it
  • Track which files and individual pages have been viewed
  • Determine how much time viewers spent on each file or page

This information allows you to evaluate and understand customer interest, identify decision-making barriers, and determine the value of developing and personalizing materials.
