Integrating your Ontraport account with Google Analytics is a great way to collect and analyze your purchase activity data. Once set up, you’ll be able to see which Google Ads are converting and gain useful sales insights such as your average order value and the length of your sales cycle.

There are three ways to integrate your Ontraport account with Google Analytics:

Basic setup: Choose this option if you’re using a Basic level account and/or you’d like to add a Google tracking script to your Ontraport page.

Intermediate setup: Choose this option if you’re using a Plus level account and/or you’d like to set up an intermediate integration that sends your contacts’ sales data to Google Analytics when they purchase.

Advanced setup: Choose this option if you have a Pro or Enterprise level account and/or you’d like to set up a more robust integration that sends contact data to Google Analytics based on mid and deep funnel conversion data.

This intermediate setup tracks your sales and sends your information to Google Analytics. To do this, you’ll create a property in Google Analytics, edit your order form’s settings and add a script to your thank you page.

Google Analytics Ecommerce Tracking is available to users with Ontraport Plus accounts and above.

A property is a website or mobile app that is associated with a unique tracking ID. To create a new one:

  • Follow these steps provided by Google to create a Universal Analytics property.
    1. In step 6 of Google’s instructions, be sure to follow the steps to “Create a Universal Analytics property only” so you generate a “UA-” tracking ID.
    2. Create a Universal Analytics property only example

    3. Make sure the currency you select matches your Ontraport account’s settings.
    4. Currency setting example

  • Once you’ve created your property, go to your property settings and copy your tracking ID — you’ll use this when you set up your thank you page.

Deep funnel conversion tracking with Google Analytics

This feature is for advanced marketers with Pro or Enterprise level accounts, and it allows you to set up an advanced Google tracking integration. You can check out our webinar with Three Ventures to see how it all works.

This advanced integration allows you to bridge the gap between the data collected about your anonymous leads tracked by Google and your identified leads tracked by Ontraport, so you can see if your ads are driving traffic that actually purchases from you. When you can see your mid and deep funnel conversions from Ontraport in Google, you can focus your marketing budget on ads that are driving sales — not just clicks or opt-ins.

To get started, you need to enable advanced Google tracking fields in your account, download and publish a prebuilt automation map to send your data to Google, and set up your Google Analytics account to use that data.

Enable advanced Google tracking fields

This feature will allow you to capture the Google Analytics Client ID and GCLID parameters when your forms are submitted, and store that data in two new fields: “GA Client ID” and “GCLID.” As soon as you toggle this feature on, your new fields will be created and automatically added to all of your Ontraforms and forms on Ontraport Pages.

  • Go to profile iconAdministrationAdvanced Settings.
  • Toggle Deep Funnel Conversion Tracking on.
