Tracking your customer’s journey through your website can give you valuable insights into their behavior and interaction with your brand.
This can help you create micro-targeted segments and more personalized automations!
Sendlane Beacon is a pixel-based tracking tool that helps you do just that.
You can easily install the Beacon on your WordPress website or any of its pages to start tracking events and conversions.
Why you should track website visitors
Tracking your customer’s journey can help you understand their likes and dislikes, as well as how they interact with your website.
One way to use this information is to create content that is more relevant to your customers, which will ultimately help improve your engagement and conversion rates.
You could even grow your sales using this insightful data!
For example, ecommerce businesses can track the products most viewed by their contacts to send them personalized product recommendations.
Check out how retail brand Zee and Co. uses website tracking information to send personalized emails to their visitors.
By identifying the pages that shoppers browsed on their website, this company was able to create targeted product recommendations for each visitor.
Website tracking can also help you answer some important questions like:
- Where are your visitors coming from?
- What are they searching for on your website?
- How long do they spend on a particular page?
- What do they do after making a purchase?
Understanding customer behavior can help you evaluate your existing marketing campaigns, see what's working for you and what's not, and create better campaigns in the future.
Website tracking can also help you learn how well your landing pages are doing. Find out what kind of visual or text-based content is doing well or not to minimize your bounce rate.
