Online data masterclasses

We love data. But using data in the right way can be a challenge. We'd hate for you to not make the most of your editorial analytics tool, and the smartocto webinar is here to help. In these free online masterclasses we discuss the use of data and the challenges that come with it, but also the benefits it can bring when used well. But we also look beyond data, at developments in the industry and new ways to help optimise your online publishing strategy.

Together with experts from the field we share best practices, tips and tools that help make content optimisation and storytelling with data a success.
