In order to access the O2O metrics (In-store visits, in-store sales,...) of your business, you have to put 2 Google products into work. Google My Business, in which you can manage your location properly and Adwords for the launch of your local campaigns. Then we can extrapolate those results and start making conclusions.

Store visits: Linked with Adwords and using geolocalized position tracking, Store visits will give you an estimations on how many people came to visit your shop after they clicked on your ad. If you add the average spending to this measurement you’ll have a solid base to calculate your ROI.

Google analytics: It is possible to make the same assumptions with Google Analytics. In this case, you’ll make the same connection as for Store Sales Direct but by adding the conversion data coming from Google analytics you’ll get an even more accurate view on the effectiveness of your campaign and the omnichannel path your customer are going through before buying something in your shop.
