Importance of Tracking Your Digital Marketing Campaigns

by Jason

If you are running a digital marketing campaign, you need to track it. By tracking you will know everything that you need to know about your campaign. Some of the things that you will know about it include:

  • Number of unique visitors visiting your site daily, weekly or monthly
  • Traffic sources of your visitors: You will know whether the traffic is organic, direct or referral. Organic traffic is traffic coming from people that visit your site after typing your target keyword in the search engine. Direct traffic is traffic coming from people that have keyed in the name of your business or URL. Referral traffic on the other hand is traffic coming from social media, blogs and other sources that refer them to you. Through tracking you will know where majority of your traffic is coming thus you can concentrate there.
  • The number of readers that you have every day, week, or monthly: You will also be able to know the length of time that every reader spends on your site.
  • Your conversion: This depends on your campaign. If you want to increase your email subscribers, you will know the number of people that are seeing your campaign and the number of people that takes action. If the conversion is too low, you may have to change your campaign.

Features of a good digital marketing campaign tracking tool

There are many tracking tools in the market that you can use, but no two are the same. To have an easy time, you should go with a tool that is easy to use.
