Session Description:

“I know half the money I spend on advertising is wasted, but I can never find out which half.” – John Wannamaker. If you run ads for your dealership, or track website traffic in Google Analytics, this quote from the 1900s probably sounds a little too true! But there is a solutuon! During this webinar, you’ll learn how to use UTM codes on hyperlinks so you can track website traffic and monitor which marketing efforts are working — down to the campaign, channel, and promotion.

By using UTMs on your clickable links (emails, social media, etc), your dealership can keep marketing companies accountable and track your website visitors’ clicks in Google Analytics. DealerSocket CSM veteran Brandon Alexander joins us on this week’s webinar to talk all things UTMs, including an interactive demo so you can see EXACTLY how it works in Google Analytics.

If you’re trying to make sense of your website traffic reports, or just wondering where your ad dollars are going, this webinar is for you!
