Data visualization provides us with the ability to absorb information quickly, uncover insights and make more effective and quicker data-informed decisions.

A dashboard is an information management tool that visually tracks, analyzes and displays key metrics and data points to monitor a process, department, or business. It displays values, charts, and graphs and typically provides a central location for businesses to monitor and analyze performance.

In this course we'll go from 'data' to 'dashboard' using DOMO. We'll cover the following topics:


  • Define 'dashboard'
  • Overview of DOMO and walk through the steps of installing/ downloading DOMO


  • Explore sample data set in raw form
  • Load sample data set into DOMO
  • Overview of the basic layout of DOMO
  • Write the narrative of the data analysis - this will help drive the structure of the dashboard


  • Discuss the DATAcated Chart Selector Guide and sketch the dashboard on paper
  • Design the dashboard directly in DOMO
  • Leverage the DATAcated Visual Best Practices Checklist
  • Publish or save the dashboard

Enrolling in the course provides you with:

  • Engaging video content with several examples
  • DATAcated® Visual Best Practices Checklist
  • DATAcated® Chart Selector Guide
  • Certificate of completion to demonstrate your dedication
  • Access to the DATAcated Academy Slack group

Aaron King

Having spent the past decade-plus driving, measuring, and analyzing results for many advertisers, I developed a passion for data, reporting, and analysis. With that passion, I decided to found an independent consultancy with a vision to help businesses use data to make decisions. Over the years I have noticed that too often, people who are responsible for managing digital campaigns spend lots of time pulling data, and they actually spend very little time managing campaigns. I'm using my experience in marketing and technology in order to make marketers' lives easier.

Such brands for which I have managed data strategy, technology implementation and/or media campaigns include, Crown & Caliber, Carhartt, The Home Depot, Havertys Furniture, Floor & Decor, OTHRSource, Kool Smiles, Liberty Medical, Hoveround, Piedmont Urgent Care, Travelzoo, and Navy Federal Credit Union. 

I have held leadership roles at both Response Mine Interactive and Look-Listen where among many things, I helped build a digital media department, automated internal and client reporting, turned around a publicly-traded company, and mentored many individuals starting their careers in digital media & analytics.

When I'm not working I enjoy cooking, watching sports and spending time with my beautiful family. I live in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA with my wife Michelle, our sons Mason and Jaden, and our 50-lb black Labrador Retriever mix named Rallo.
