Overview

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.

Why integrate?

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.

More highlights of the Google Analytics integration:

  • See exactly how much revenue your campaign generated: As well as the total revenue generated, you can also see exactly how many transactions your campaign generated, the average value of each subscriber, and the percentage of subscribers that converted into a sale.
  • Track how many subscribers converted: By setting up conversion goals in Google Analytics, you can see how many subscribers completed a desired action, such as completing an enquiry form or adding a product to their shopping cart.

How to get started

  1. Sign up for a free Google Analytics account and add analytics tracking to your website. You can find Google’s comprehensive guide to getting set up here.
