What Next?

Once your data is flowing in you should start seeing results on your dashboard. Most clients find UTM tagging inconsistencies, untracked email links and other data quality hiccups. It's good to fix these small things whenever possible, better data in means better data out.

Once your data is flowing and the easy data fixes are finished, there are some advanced options:

  • Dive into specific campaigns and mediums: From your traffic overview page, you can see comparative performance of all inbound traffic to see which is performing best.
  • Turn on daily or weekly snapshot emails: Get a snapshot of your dashboard right in your inbox every day or every week making it easy to stay on top of new signups and new campaign performance.
  • Connect your AdWords account: Connecting your AdWords account will allow Attribution.io to pull in your cost information and show you your ROI!
  • Iterate: Use your data to change how you conduct marketing and iteratively check your results. Most clients look at each campaign/source and expand those that are working and improve or pause those that aren't working.
