It’s not too late to beat the Universal Analytics sunset
Transition from UA to GA4 NOW
Fast-track Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4 transition, right on time
Still seeing the annoying message when you log into Google Analytics?
Even though you thought you had it sorted out already…
Worst of all –> If you don’t go through the setup procedure right, Google will make decisions for you. That always goes over well. 🙄
But what if you didn’t have to figure it all out on your own?
What if there was a way to sail through this transition smoothly, without disruptions, without losing data & without learning to speak ‘Google-ese’ overnight?
I know exactly how annoying that countdown message is.
I was hoping Google would just delay again or make it easier with enough grumbling.
I wanted a solution to take away the headache. But it didn’t exist… so I created it.

Renee is a lifesaver! I‘m fairly savvy, having run websites since 2013. Even so, the email flood about the GA4 switchover was overwhelming. I tried setting things up myself, and thought I did a great job. Boy am I glad I reached out to Renee! Even though I followed the directions in the emails, I‘d set things up wrong. Renee‘s guidance was the key to navigating the GA4 migration smoothly and efficiently. Now, my GA4 account is set up right, data is flowing, I‘m seeing how GA4 data is far more robust than UA ever was, and I can focus on my business. Renee deserves all the stars. Save yourself the time and effort of a DIY-data-gone-wrong. Work with Renee!

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens to my historical data?
Universal Analytics does not feed into your Google Analytics 4. They are completely separate, but by getting GA4 installed, you’ll start collecting a history.
Can you transfer my UA history to GA4?
Unfortunately, no. While it may not feel like it now, Google did some work to make GA4 more robust. The down-side is that the data is not a 1 for 1 copy/paste like you’d think.
But let’s get you migrated & then we can talk about those possibilities for your site when you’re ready.
What kind of access will you need to my Google Analytics account?
We will need ‘Edit’ level access to your Google Analytics account. This allows us to create properties, view settings, manage users, and implement the necessary changes for the transition. Rest assured, we treat your account with utmost respect and privacy.
We’ll share the process to grant & revoke access to make this simple. You’ll also have a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) for additional peace-of-mind.
How long does the process take?
The transition process typically takes between 24 to 48 hours, depending on the complexity of your current setup.
What is an NDA, & what's it for?
An NDA is a non-disclosure agreement meant to provide legal confidentiality. Some site owners are concerned about sharing site details of this nature, and this is an avenue for documented protection of your site and analytics.
What will happen if I don't make the transition from UA to GA4?
Universal Analytics STOPS collecting traffic 7/1/23. Period. You’ll lose the ability to see how your site is performing.
How does the Last-Minute Lifesaver: UA to GA4 Transition Service work?
First, you’ll answer a questionnaire with enough detail for me to get you a Non-Dislcosure agreement & for me to start thinking about your transition along with an invoice through email.
Once processed, you’ll receive instructions to grant access to your Analytics account. Then I’ll work on your migration. All changes will be documented, so you can have a record of what steps were taken on your site.
Once I know data is flowing as expected across all of the nuances of your site, I’ll send over that documentation with a link on how to remove my access (just a reverse process of granting access).
Can I see UA data in GA4?
Unfortunately, no. Google made some changes to how it collects and stores information in a way that made the 2 systems out of alignment just enough to make this a no-go.
Just know that there are some interesting customization improvements in GA4 from those changes to make it way more flexible to track to your specific business’ goals.
Do I need to have technical knowledge to use GA4 after the transition?
While GA4 has a different interface and features compared to UA, I’ve designed the transition service to set up the key features and configurations for you.
This should make it easier for you to navigate and use GA4. However, some degree of familiarization will be beneficial. That’s why we’re including a bonus to understanding GA4 – to help you understand and use GA4 effectively.
This service is PERFECT for you if you’re a
content creator or small business owner who:
