Tracking External Links In An Email Campaign

Ever wanted to track a video link or social media link in an email campaign? If your email campaign host does not track this for you, how do you know how many people have engaged with your content? If you want to see this information in Bime you will need to make sure Google Analytics records it. Here is a simple way to get around this problem.

One suggested solution:

  • Use the Google URL builder to tag the social campaign link.
  • Redirect the user through a page that contains your Google Analytics Tracking code (e.g. a specially-created page on your website) - make sure that the code has executed before completing the next step!
  • Then set an automatic redirection from your website to the social media item/video etc.
