When passing UTM parameters, GCLID, and other parameters to your website it stores this info via a browser cookie for 30 days.
It can then be inserted into any lead generation form on your website. It automatically adds this extra information as hidden fields on your HTML form.
- Track the source of email submissions
- Track ROI of your Google, Bing, and Facebook ad campaigns.
- Know which source of traffic is more profitable.
It automatically works with most HTML form submissions such as:
* Contact Form 7
* WP Form
* Salesforce CRM
* Ninja Forms
* Caldera Forms
No code changes is needed with your website. Just install this plugin and go. You do need to add support of passing these fields to the service used.
What happens if someone visits a bunch of pages on my website/blog before filling the form?
It doesn’t matter. As soon as they land on your website, the script saves the information in a cookie. This cookie is valid for 30 days. It adds this information automatically to your form from the saved cookie.
Where can I find more about UTM parameters and how to properly use them?
I recommend reading this tutorial on using UTM parameters, standardizing the naming and tracking them.
