3. Customizable Dashboards
Aside from its main dashboard, WeChat’s Mini Programs analytics platform (“We分析”) also features similar dashboards that are customizable based on the needs of different industries.
For example, a dashboard analyzing an e-commerce business would display metrics like traffic, search volume (i.e., to reveal best-sellers), customer profiles and behavior, and user journey data. On top of that, it would showcase a broader data breakdown of the entire e-commerce industry.
This helps businesses quickly assess their online store performance in comparison to the industry benchmark.
