Keyword planning is an element of SEO that cannot be ignored.  There are lots of tools available on the web for this process, the main thing is that you have some words and phrases you are targeting, and you have some data to support the goals you have. 

Google Data Studio

  • Set up automated email reports to keep track of your data

Marketing is best driven by data, and data studio can be customised to give you a lovely executive report, weekly or monthly, so that over time your marketing engine improves as you make data driven decisions. 

An executive report can be basic, or more complicated.  With Google Data Studio, you just include the most meaningful data for you.
