We don't get the utm_source,etc. data in CheddarGetter.

I.e.,

Customer lands on our site perhaps with utm_source=PrintAd5

Then they order from CheddarGetter but that data doesn't get passed along.

One way to do that is with GoogleAnalytics and, I think, Passing in the clientID as explained here:
https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyt...

So,

  1. We'd pass in to our link to cheddargetter.com?clientID=XXXXX
  2. You'd report data to Google Analytics
  3. You MIGHT be able to retrieve the utm_values from Google.

I'm really surprised that your other customers don't also need this. It's critical when doing Conversion Rate Optimization to know where your revenue is coming from.

    Hi Clay,

    Have you taken a look at our What are Marketing Metrics? Why do I care? How do I get setup? and Marketing Metrics Cookie Best Practices. These should get you on track.

    Best,
    Drew
