|Reporting and Analytics||Free with a Campaign Monitor subscription||Track conversions and monitor the success of your email campaigns.|
Analyzing basic email metrics like open rates and click-through-rates is useful when monitoring audience engagement. But to really understand the effectiveness of your email marketing strategy and measure ROI, you need to go beyond these results to understand whether your efforts are generating leads and converting those leads into customers.
Google Analytics is a free tool that gives you a deep understanding of your website visitors and customers. You can set up custom dashboards and reports that show you the number of visitors to your site, where they came from, how long they stayed, and how they interacted with each page. When combined with Campaign Monitor, you can use Google Analytics to compare the impact of different campaigns and assess the overall performance of your email marketing program compared with other digital marketing channels.
Once enabled, Campaign Monitor can automatically add Google Analytics tracking to your email campaigns so you don’t need to worry about manually editing URL links in every email you send.
Connecting the results from your email campaigns to the data on your website gives you powerful insights into how your campaigns convert into web traffic, customer conversions, and sales.
