Google Analytics is how Kickbooster tracks for the successful referrals to your campaign page. Without it, we wouldn't be able to know when someone lands on your page, or who sent them there.
What's a UA code?
A UA code is a series of numbers that Google Analytics gives you once you create an account with them. It is sometimes known as the Google Tracking Code. The code starts with "UA-" then is followed by a series of numbers (ex. UA-123456-7).
How do I connect my Google Analytics with Kickbooster?
When you use Kickbooster, you need to have inserted your Google Analytics tracking code to your Kickstarter page before we are able to connect to it.
In this video tutorial, you will learn how to sign up, add your UA code to your Kickstarter page and then connect to it through Kickbooster.
Step 1: Sign up for Google Analytics
Step 2: Turn on Ecommerce Settings (0:36)
Step 3: Add Google Analytics to your Kickstarter page (1:00)
Step 4: Connect Kickbooster with your Google Analytics (1:15)
If you're running into issues connecting Kickbooster with your Google Analytics account even after following the steps in the video, here are some tips from common issues we come across:
- Kickbooster needs to connect to the UA code that you have inserted into your Kickstarter settings. Be sure you are connecting to a Google account that has access to that UA code or else you will be unable to connect. You don't need to sign up with Kickbooster using the same email address as the Google Account linked to your Kickstarter, however you will need access to that Google Account in order to successfully connect.
- Ensure your Ecommerce settings are ON and that your Enhanced Ecommerce settings are OFF.
- You need to have a Google Analytics account just for your Kickstarter page. You will need to create either a new account just for your Kickstarter page or a new property for your Kickstarter page under an existing account. We can't use the tracking code from your website because we need to track activity to and from your Kickstarter page.To create a new property under your existing account, log in to Google Analytics and select the account. Then click on the Admin button (bottom left-hand side of the screen). In the middle column, you will see "Property". Under Property there will be a dropdown menu, click on the drop down menu and select "Create New Property".
