Description HeapThe main objective behind most websites is to achieve profitable conversions over the long term. Thus, it is important that the goals you set, such as clicks, login or add to cart, are actually able to lead to sales. In this regard tracks every action of the visitor like page view, click, form submission and more without any work on your part. To understand how this incredible tracking tool works, I invite you to read this article.
What is Heap ?Heap is a perfect tool that you can use to generate funnels on your website or app. One of the main tasks of conversion rate optimization is to align each individual web page with a relevant business objective. In the case of blogs, you will be more interested in metrics like time spent on your website and number of pages viewed by a user. With Heap, you can define your key indicators and set up automated reports to monitor your conversion rates and analyze any interaction with your product. Indeed, the platform comes with powerful features like data capture, event viewer, and marketing funnel tracking. Heap makes it easy for businesses to get a detailed profile of their users and track interactions. With Heap, you’ll get real-time event tracking, as well as history-based reporting.
How does Heap work?In a nutshell, Heap works to monitor every user action on your website to describe their behavior to you. The tool has a sensor that allows it to automatically capture every action taken by the user, such as clicks or swipes, to give you an accurate idea of their journey on your website. To better understand the concept, Heap offers us a user journey model on its website. When using Heap, a user’s visit time to a website is defined as a section. And any action taken by visitors on the website is known to be an event according to how Heap works. Thus, each event is associated with properties that constitute blocks of tracked metadata that describe the behavior of the user vis-à-vis the product. As a standard example of property, one can find the country from which the user’s interaction with the product originates as well as the type of device he uses. When configuring the tool, you will be asked to define an event either by using the event viewer or by proceeding manually using CSS selectors. In any case, you must initialize the software on your website to be able to use it. In this tutorial, we will configure events using the event viewer. After clicking on ”Launch”, you will be redirected to the ”Viewer” page events”, where you must enter the URL address of the website for which you want to track events. Once you enter a URL and click on the ”Launchpad” button, the relevant website will automatically open in a new tab with the event viewer. There’s also a red highlighter that appears, called the Element Picker, whenever you hover over different elements on the page. Now, to define an event, you will simply click on any element on the page. For example, to understand the number of times the ”Connection” button has been clicked, we will use the event viewer to click on this specific button. Next, a window appears perpendicular to the screen with useful data as well as customizable options. We can therefore directly read the number of clicks made on the ”Connection” button for a given period. If an event already existed, the tool can alert you when you try to create a new one to avoid duplicate events. To make it easier to identify each element of the website, Heap defines the events using the HTML/CSS of the site. As we said before, the second way to define events with Heap is to use the manual method. To do this, you must access the ”Events” tab in the ”Definitions” section to create a new event by clicking on the ”New definition” button. It will be a question here of defining the category, the name and the definition of the event. You also have the option of using filters to define the event for a specific audience. For example, you can choose to track the number of people who click on your login button in France only. Once the event is created, you will get data like:
- The number of people who triggered the event;
- The page from which the event was triggered;
