Want to know more? Then Google Analytics might be interesting for you: Google Analytics is a common analysis tool for websites, that helps you collect relevant information about the behavior of your customers, e.g.:
- Number of calls of your website
- Where your visitors come from
- Duration of visit on your website
- Search items, landing pages, homepages
All this data is essential for the success monitoring of your websites. The success of your newsletter campaigns can also be analyzed with the help of Google Analytics. Visits on your website are related to your newsletter.
1. How to integrate Google Analytics in your newsletter campaigns

2. Advantage 1: Connect newsletter campaigns with your shop
Additional to the evaluation of your newsletter campaigns, relevant information about the links in your newsletters help you to measure your success. How often has an advertised product led to a purchase in your shop? That’s exactly what a web analysis tool can do for you, e.g. Google Analytics. Define and evaluate aims and actions by integrating Google Analytics. Find out:
- How many visitors your newsletter has generated on your website
- The most successful links
- Which subpages do your visitors click
- How many new subscriptions has your newsletter produced
- Which products are viewed and purchased?
- How many purchases are generated
- How is the turnover of your campaign?
- Were downloads of data like whitepapers of your company generated?
3. Advantage 2: Analyze your newsletters and user behavior
The results from Google Analytics don’t only help you to optimize your newsletters, but also your website.
- User behavior: A large number of dropouts and quick closing of your landing pages indicate that your website doesn’t contain the content your subscribers were expecting.
- Pages per visit: The viewed pages and the duration of the visit also give you insights to whether your page provides your subscribers with what they need
- Turnover tracking: which actions and campaigns are most successful
These values are observed for every newsletter and give you an insight to the success of each newsletter or the entire campaign. To see at a glance if one value has changed above average, there is the radar function. This allows you to monitor certain figures and get notifications about strong fluctuations.
