How lead source tracking is done?

Step 1 – Defining Lead Source Origins

Defining lead sources is not necessarily as easy as it sounds. Especially considering the data that many marketing automation systems provide is data we previously did not have access to.

Here are some examples for lead source:

  • - Search (Lead Source).
  • - Organic (Specific Lead Source).
  • - AdWords or other paid search sources.
  • - Web Referral (traffic sent from another website).
  • - Referring website.
  • - Social platforms.
  • - Advertising.
  • - Specific Display Ad Campaigns.
  • - Direct Mail Campaign.
Step 2 – Dynamically Tracking Lead Sources

Accurately tracking lead sources is very important. If you are using a marketing automation system, you should be able to automate at least 90% of this.

Here are some tips that may help:

  1. Creating landing pages for specific campaigns
  2. Creating and Defining Workflows – Creating workflows allows you to define lead sources for landing pages that receive visits from multiple sources. For example, you can create a workflow that says “if someone becomes a lead and their original referral is an organic search, set their Lead Source to “Search” and their Specific Lead Source to “Organic.”
