Our tracking link feature for event ticketing lets you use trackable links when selling your tickets. You can use different links for different channels or assign different links to different team members to see which channel or team member sells the most tickets. You can even give tracking links to your affiliates!
Creating a Tracking Link
In your admin console, go to Registration > Tracking Links
Click Create New Link
Enter the name you would like to use for your tracking link, and click Create
Include your new tracking link in an email, on your website, or on your social media channels, or send it to sales affiliates to track the number of tickets and dollars generated by that channel!
When someone visits or buys a ticket using your tracking link, you can see those numbers in your Tracking Link tab.
Note: The number of visits is the total number of times the page has been visited (not unique visits).
Adding UTM Codes to Your Tracking Links
If you want to segment the tracking links further, you can add more parameters by adding UTM codes to your tracking links.
UTM stands for Urchin Tracking Module. A UTM code is a portion of text added to the end of the URL that enables you to track visits to that URL. This is useful when you’re testing what promotion methods work best and tracking the performance of certain content pieces.
For example, you create a tracking link that will be sent through Facebook, but you'll post several times with different content (video, contest, blog, etc.). So instead of creating several tracking links to track those different contents, you can customize a UTM code for each post that goes out to track the traffic as a whole and segmented.
These are the other types of UTM parameters you can create:
It would look something like this:
Create a UTM Code
You don’t need to be a coding wizard to create a UTM code. The Google UTM generator syncs nicely with Google Analytics. Just enter the needed information, and Google spits out a ready-to-use URL.
Access the Google UTM generator page
Paste in your tracking link in the Website URL field
Fill out the rest of the fields
Copy the generated URL with UTM codes at the bottom
