I recently set out to find a solution for those of us without a budget for such a great tool, but still want to create a visually interesting social hub – either on their website or as a dashboard at an event. That’s when I came across the super cool Wordpress Social Stream plugin by Design Chemical.
The report defaults to a view that shows you the top Client ID’s by count of sessions during the selected time period, along with a set of useful metrics like their average session duration, # of transactions, and goal conversion rate.
The fact that there is a profile silhouette implies that GA may allow integration with other systems to pull in a user’s profile, but time will tell if this turns out to be true.
It’s easy to imagine how useful this report will be, whether it’s identifying your most valuable ecommerce customers, or a publication’s most avid readers.
At the time the report remains in beta and is only available to select users. There is no word on when it will be released more widely, but we’ll add to this post as we learn more.
