Migrating to GA4: What you need to know

Are you migrating to GA4? It is no trivial task getting ready to switch from Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4. It’s not enough to rely on either the Upgrade Assistant or reworking the tracking code. The migration process is a project that requires significant time and effort, and typically takes months to complete.

What’s more, the announcement of UA’s 2023 sunset created several additional challenges marketing experts and data analysts must overcome:

  • Tight migration deadline
  • Possible loss of data due to deletion of Properties
  • Lack of familiar UA features in GA4

However, tackling the switch from UA to GA4 becomes easier with expert guidance. With the right advisors and careful preparation beforehand, you’ll be ready to confidently start moving and managing your data – with a full year of GA4 experience under your belt prior to July 1, 2023.
