Free Raven Tools and Resources

“Do more, spend less.”

It’s long been a motto of Raven’s, but sometimes we focus mostly on the “do more” part (Can you blame us? We integrate 25+ data sources into a gajillion useful tools).

So here’s some info on the “spend less” part of the equation. Raven is the choice of thousands of marketers around the world, and with a starting price of $99 a month, we think it’s a steal.

And because we love marketers so much, we also offer a lot of extra tools and resources completely free of charge. Here’s a rundown of free Raven tools and resources.

GA Config

Google Analytics Configuration Tool

If you love Google Analytics but need a hand setting up accounts, goals and/or KPIs, our Google Analytics Configuration Tool is here to help.

GAConfig offers support for 17 configurations. Here’s a sample of what you can do with GA Config:

“I just found your Google Analytics Conversion Tracking tool. This is better than sleepy kitty videos!”
-Marcus Snyder

Schema Creator and plugin

Schema Creator

Structured data is a way for search engine machines to make sense of content in your HTML. Google and other search engines created a structured data standard called schema.org.

If you’re like most web designers or SEOs, you might find schema.org a little difficult to grasp at first. That’s why we created Raven’s free Schema Creator — to help you quickly build and get started with schema.org microdata.

We’ve included some of the most popular schemas for you to create. After you create a schema, you can copy and paste the code to your site or add additional item properties to it.

P.S. There’s also a free Schema Creator WordPress plugin!

“In my (completely uncompensated) experience and opinion, Raven’s Schema Creator for WordPress Plugin and Schema-Creator.org tools are invaluable assets.”
-Carrie Hill

    Alan, very happy to hear you love the tool :) We plan on doing a big update to it, but right now we’re 100% focused on a major redesign to the platform, which will be launching soon: http://raventools.com/simple We’ll hopefully get GAConfig updated within the next 2-3 months.

  2. Alan says:

    Hi, I love the GA Config tool; it’s been so handy in the past but now with Universal Analytics being available, do you plan on updating the tool to reflect the new configurations?

    For example, the Event Tracking syntax is different for Universal than Standard.

    I know there’s the option for new account to use the historic code but I think it makes sense for a new site to use the most up to date code which makes the GA Config Tool redundant for it.

    Love to hear your thoughts on this.
