How to setup your lead generation campaign on Google Ads.

AnyTrack setup

Get Started with AnyTrack

To start tracking your funnel, you will first need to add the AnyTrack tracking code to your site. Very much like adding Google Analytics, you simply need to add the tracking code in the head section of your site. As soon as the code is on your site, it will start collecting traffic data.

Direct Integration

CRM Integration

AnyTrack has an extensive integration catalog that allows you to easily connect your AnyTrack account with any CRM or Lead Generation software. AnyTrack provides you with a pre-configured Postback URL which carries the required parameters to track conversions.

Alternatively, you can use webhooks to track conversions back to AnyTrack.

Landing page & Form setup

Automatic form submission tracking

AnyTrack makes it easy to track form submissions (opt-ins) and pass tracking data to your CRM.

Add a hidden field to your form with the default value {click_id} and AnyTrack will automatically substitute the field with the tracking data:.

  • Field name: clickid
  • Default value: {click_id}
*Configure your form to pass the form data during the form submission.
Google Ads Settings

Google Ads Account Settings

Since tracking starts with accurate click tracking, you need to update two settings in your Google Ads account. Both settings will apply across your account and will guarantee that Google passes all the required tracking parameters.

  • The Tracking URL template
  • The Auto-Tag Settings
 
Note: The Tracking URL template is located in your AnyTrack account, under traffic sources.

Conversion setup

There are several configurations that you need to perform before you track and optimize your campaigns based on conversions coming from your CRM or Lead Generation software:

  • Import conversions from Google Analytics
  • Configure the imported conversions
    • Conversion type (i.e. purchase, lead)
    • Attribution window

 

Note: Google Analytics conversion goals were created when you connected your Google Analytics account in AnyTrack.

Campaign settings

Now that your account is properly set up, you can create your campaigns, set your bid strategy and select the conversions you want to optimize the campaign with:

  • Select your bid strategy
  • Select the Conversion Goal(s)
 
Note: you can create several campaigns, each optimized for a different conversion goal.

Ad Setup

The last step of the campaign setup is your ad and specifically the Final URL.

Reminder: The Final URL is the page that visitors reach when clicking on your ad.

Since you’ve previously added the tracking URL template and enabled Auto-Tagging, you simply have to add your landing page URL to your ad.

Don’t work hard for your data.

Make your data work harder for you.
