Background: We have a single web application that multiple external websites link to; users visit www.aaa.com or www.bbb.com and can then click through to our web site at www.example.com.
When we send email comms, the users are directed to their respective client URL.
We require a method of tracking these users from email comms using Google Analytics so that we can see their activity in the Campaigns section.
Issue: The problem is that whilst we have Google Analytics enabled on www.example.com, we are not able to install analytics on client URLs. This means that if we affix the Google tags after the URL in emails, these are stripped out when a user then navigates around a client URL before visiting ours. This then means they do not appear in the 'Campaigns' tab of GA. That is:
trackable --> www.example.com?utm_source=offeremail&utm_campaign=testcampaign&utm_medium=email
not trackable -- > www.aaa.com?utm_source=offeremail&utm_campaign=testcampaign&utm_medium=email
Question: Are we able to start the tracking once a user clicks a link in an email but then accesses our site from another site and then show the results in the campaign tab?
