Contra Pro members can take it a step further, gaining access to Contra’s Pro Analytics, providing insights that Independents can turn into earnings. 

Here’s how it works:

What information is available to Contra Pro members?

From the Dashboard, Contra Pro members can see:

✦ Who viewed your profile or portfolio, directly or through search (aka Contra’s Discover)

✦ The specific channels leads are coming from, like Instagram, Google, Discover, or directly

✦ Keywords that most commonly drive leads to your profile or portfolio

✦ Projects and service views, and which are getting the most traffic

You can adjust the timeframe to see those insights for the past week, month, or year, so you can understand if anything changes over time.
