How do I track my campaign activity?
It is important to track which of your marketing efforts is/are producing the best results, and which one(s) might not be as successful. You are able to track your different marketing campaigns. This should allow you to evaluate which efforts have been more successful in driving traffic to your site, which ones have converted to the most investments, and which efforts you might want to consider halting.
IMPORTANT: You need to setup your tracking right away because the data will not be tracked and later cannot be reviewed.

We have created a field on the Campaign Options page where you can place the Segment Write Key.
Segment allows a company to place data from the campaign page into over 180 integrations including Mixpanel, Optimizely, Salesforce and Appboy.
There is a fee for this service but if you're looking for more advanced tracking options outside of what we have built into the platform, then Segment would be a great option.
Create unique campaign URLs to track people clicking on content you will produce. You can use tools like this Google Analytics URL Builder which tracks directly through Google Analytics.
