Hi, I’m Sheila, a technology consultant, web designer, project manager and author. I help heart-centered business owners, the lightworkers of the world, with technology. I build websites and make technology work for them, so they can spend more time focusing on growing their business and doing what they love.
Have you ever thought about using Google Analytics to increase traffic to your site? Are you taking advantage of the Reports in Google Analytics? Do you ever login and look at your traffic? There is a wealth of information in Google Analytics, yet it can be hidden and hard to find. My favorite thing to to is setup reports that are sent to clients weekly so that they see their latest search data. In the world of attraction, what we put our attention on grows. What we are grateful for brings more of the same into our lives.

Ritual for Receiving the Email

Take a deep breath and bring awareness to your heart and a feeling of gratitude

Open the PDF and look at it with eyes of admiration. Be grateful that there are tools that show you these amazing statistics. Be grateful for the visitors that found your site. Send a loving thank you from your heart to theirs.

Take a moment and imagine looking at future reports and how you will feel when the numbers increase each week. Be grateful and trust that you will be guided to take the actions that will increase your traffic. Be grateful and trust that new people will find your site.

Take a final deep breath and say “Thank You”.
