MailerLite tracks engagement in your campaigns for you. This information can be found in your campaign report. However, you can also enable Google Analytics to further record activity in your newsletter with the click of a button.
When you enable Google Analytics, MailerLite adds a UTM tag to the links in your campaign. If you have Google Analytics enabled on your website, then those tags can be tracked in your Google Analytics dashboard.
To enable Google Analytics in your campaign, simply check the box labeled Use Google Analytics link tracking to track clicks from your campaign before sending or scheduling your campaign.
To enable Google Analytics in your automation emails:
Navigate to Automations.
Click the title of your automation to open the workflow editor.
Click on the email step to select it.
In the sidebar, check the box labeled Use Google Analytics link tracking to track clicks from your campaign.
To examine the results of your email campaigns on Google Analytics:
Log in to your Google Analytics dashboard.
In the sidebar, click Acquisitions.
Here you will find the results of enabling Google Analytics in emails sent from your MailerLite account.
If you want to customize your Google Analytics tracking by adding custom UTM values:
