What is embedded analytics?
Benefits of embedded analytics in an email marketing dashboard
Email marketing boosts revenue by extending your business to more markets. Some of the key benefits include:
- Increasing click rates
- Improving email marketing operations
- Swiftly and easily monitoring customer behavior
- Saving time and reducing cost
Increasing click rates
A high click rate is the hope of every email operation. It encourages teams to keep working on more ways to get subscribers for the business. Using embedded analytics in the marketing department for emails helps the marketing team track key metrics and KPIs such as clicks, click percentage by browser, opens vs clicks by month, and more. Tracking these metrics helps improve emails where clicks are low. It also provides insight on monthly performance, which encourages teams to aim for higher open rates. This increases the click rate, leading to more leads.
Improving email marketing operations
Embedded analytics helps marketing managers improve the email marketing operation by providing insights into key metrics, such as device comparison, opens, opens by country, and more.
This gives managers a straightforward way of planning and focusing on areas to tackle. It helps managers improve their leads and enables their products to reach more people. It also gives them insight into regions with higher open rates where they should do more marketing to increase their leads. By concentrating on open rates, the company attracts more customers and enhances returns in abundance.
Swiftly and easily monitoring customer behavior
Customer reaction to emails is critical. It can build a business or degrade it. Embedded analytics gives insight into customer reactions by tracking KPIs such as spam reports, unsubscribes, requests, unique opens, subscribers, and more. This helps team leads know the reason behind the customer feedback on their products. It also helps them know the reasons that their products are good, leading to subscribers and unique opens. With this knowledge, team leads can strive to increase the company positives by offering quality services and mitigating customer demands. It also helps to improve issues to reduce the rate of spam reports and unsubscribes to their emails.
Saving time and reducing cost
Embedded analytics helps the administration track key metrics such as period, delivered percentage, open rate, conversion rate, and deliveries. This enables the marketing team to work in a strategical way with their customers. It also lets staff increase productivity and cut costs. This happens by scheduling email to be sent to customers based on effective time.
It also helps the administration engage with and know their audience quickly to improve services. This increases customer satisfaction. Having insight into this aspect of the email marketing workflow allows time to budget adequately for the services needed to achieve the prime goal of the business.

How to embed analytical tools into marketing apps
Let’s see how analytics can be embedded into web marketing applications. Bold BI can embed your dashboards in apps for more than 18 web platforms, including React with ASP.NET Core, React with Go, WinForms, Node.js, Vue with Go, and Vue with Core. In the rest of this blog, I am going to explain how to embed dashboards into your Angular applications. Consider a scenario in which your market has a website like the one shown in the following image.
You can embed dashboards easily using Bold BI and avoid building an analytics or BI solution yourself. Follow these steps to embed your dashboard successfully.
Step 1: Create an Angular application.
First, you need to create an Angular application. Create a new Angular project in Visual Studio Code and add the necessary ts files to the project, as shown in the following image.
For more guidance, refer to the sample code in the Bold BI documentation.
In this demonstration, the Angular application acts as the client, and an ASP.NET Core application acts as the server. You need to add several properties in the app.component.ts file, as shown in the following table and screenshot.
Property Value Descriptions
Bold BI dashboard server URL. For example:
For Bold BI, it should be something like “site/site1”.
For the Bold BI Cloud Analytics Server, it should be an empty string.
Your Bold BI application environment.
If using the Bold BI Cloud Analytics Server, you should use “cloud.” If using Bold BI, you should use “enterprise.”
The Bold BI server will use an email address to authorize the authorization server.
Step 2: Create a Bold BI instance.
You need to create a Bold BI instance to communicate between the server-side (any web application) and the client-side (Angular application), which allows you to embed a Bold BI dashboard in the Angular application.
Step 3: Create an authorization server to authenticate the Bold BI server.
Every application that embeds a Bold BI dashboard or widget must be authorized with the Bold BI server. This authentication step requires sending confidential information to the Bold BI server, such as users’ email addresses, group data, and embed signatures. So, in your server application, implement this authentication flow and provide the URL for connecting to your server in the Bold BI embedded instance.
Step 4: Run the Angular application to view the embedded dashboard.
In the Angular application, enter the authorization URL and dashboard URL that were defined in the ASP.NET Core application. Finally, you can see that the dashboard created in the Bold BI server is embedded in your web application.
By following the previous steps, you can successfully embed your dashboard into your Angular application.
Bold BI helps you integrate dashboards in your applications written in ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET MVC, Angular, ASP.NET, and Ruby on Rails.
