How to Use Metrics to Inform Strategy

This podcast guest changed my life.

In addition to being my friend and changing my life that way, Alesia also changed it by showing me how to use metrics to inform strategy when it came to my podcast.

I hired Alesia Galati of Galati Media to do a podcast audit of the She Built This podcast back in early March 2023. We sat down and went through all the numbers, and Alesia dug in and asked me about my goals for the show. 

It was in learning more about podcast performance metrics and having Alesia make sense of them for me that I was able to use the metrics to inform my strategy moving forward. 

In this episode, Alesia and I get into the importance of tying things that you measure in your business (metrics you track) to your goals, and how doing so can help you make clear decisions and inform your strategy. 

In this episode on how to use metrics to inform strategy, Alesia Galati and I cover: 

  • Why metrics are important in your business

  • The metrics that Alesia tracks in her business and why

  • The metrics/numbers Alesia doesn’t waste her time tracking

  • Specifically for podcasters, how to evaluate the goals you. have for your show and use your numbers to inform your strategy

  • When we might need outside help in knowing our numbers

  • And more!
