What is Tracking?

The ultimate benefit of using an all-in-one system like Ontraport is that all your data is in one place, meaning you have the most comprehensive, accurate source of information possible about your customers and your business. With that information at your fingertips, you’re primed to make smart decisions about how to create better experiences for your customers so that you’ll generate better results, how to allocate your budget and resources to optimize your marketing campaigns, and how to tackle your greatest opportunities for growth.

In Ontraport, there are various ways to view and analyze your data and numerous tracking features that work together to accumulate the data. Ontraport is constantly tracking all of your contacts’ interactions behind the scenes, including which emails they open, which pages they visit, and which products they purchase.

Overall stats

Think of the dashboard as the place to go when you want to see an overview of all the stats you are interested in across your whole account. There are two ways to view this data:

  • Trends Dashboard: Use your Trends Dashboard if you want to see your stats displayed in graphs that show you your business metrics over time. Every chart has unique filters that help you see the exact information you want. Plus, you can customize the layout of your trends page to organize your charts and choose which ones you want to display.

If you know the stats you want to check in on every day, build a metric for it and Ontraport will automatically track it for you. You have the option to name, categorize and refine each metric, and your dashboard can be as simple or in-depth as you want.
