Google Analytics are important tool to analyze user behavior. After integrating these instruments with your campaign, you’ll be able to better assess the efficiency of your marketing campaigns and improve your results.
Google Analytics allow you to track the number of contacts collected from a particular campaign, how many of them continued surfing the website and proceeded to the cart, what the average purchase size is etc.
To integrate an analytics tracker system with your campaign, add UTM parameters to the links from your email. You can create a UTM tag yourself or configure it using Selzy tools applying the following parameters:
- Campaign Medium (a traffic type, use utm_medium) — identifies the channel that brought the user in. For campaigns, it is an email (default value).
- Campaign Source (the source for your campaign, use utm_source) — for example, it can be a newsletter, either a trigger or a transactional one. Default value - Selzy.
- Campaign Name (the name of your campaign, use utm_campaign) — for example, the name of your promotion or strategic campaign given in the Latin alphabet without spaces and special symbols. Default value - ID of your campaign.
- Campaign Content (additional information, use utm_content) — for example, if there are several blocks in your automated email series, you can tag each of them with a different UTM to compare their efficiency.
- Campaign Term (метка utm_term) — is used by marketing specialists for paid AdWords campaigns to note the keywords attracting traffic. In email campaigns, it can be used to give some additional info.
Here you can learn the main ways to add UTM parameters to your Selzy account.
You can configure the tracker at the last step of your campaign creation while setting up its parameters for email delivery.
To proceed to the delivery step, create an email in the Campaigns-Emails Section.
If the campaign has already been created, click on the name of the campaign needed or the Continue button next to it in the Campaigns-Emails Section.
At this step, click on the Additional Settings option.
When in the Additional Settings Section, tick [v] Integration with Google Analytics / Yandex.Metrica.
Then you will see a block with fields for your UTM parameters. Please, add your tags there.
Your parameters can be personalized, for example, by giving a short and clear name to the campaign in the Campaign field rather than a digital ID, such as Promo_black-friday, as well as by giving a short description of the campaign or the name of the list in the Content field when you send several similar campaigns at once.
To see default personalized tags, click on the Personalize button next to a parameter field you need.
To finish configuring the parameters, click on the Save and Quit button or the Send Campaign button.
After doing this, you have the same UTM tags added to all the links in your email.
If you want to use your own UTM tags, create your tagged links in a URL Builder and add them to your campaign’s template. In this case, it is advisable to deactivate the default Selzy instrument for adding UTM parameters, because the system might overwrite your parameters.
You can add links tagged with UTM parameters in automated series as well.
This is how to add UTM tags for the whole series, and for separate nods.
