How To Measure Email Fundraising Campaigns With Google Analytics

Are you in the same boat as so many nonprofits? Struggling to measure the performance of email fundraising campaigns?

You can see all of your email metrics like opens and clicks in a colorful report displayed in your email tool, but you have a hard time figuring out how many donors and contributions were generated by your email efforts, let alone how much revenue was generated.

Email tools are built to send email and so they measure the emails that are sent. They aren’t built to measure the performance of your website. You have to measure both pre-click (leading up to clicking through to your website) and post-click (after they have clicked out of the email onto your website) conversion metrics. To see post-click metrics you have to set up and use a web analytics tool like Google Analytics.

3 Key Lessons for Nonprofit Innovation and Facebook Horses

So, my dad is on Facebook… which you would find SHOCKING if you knew my dad. See, my dad’s a child of the 60’s. He listened to Bob Dylan, hitchhiked across the country, spent time at Haight-Ashbury, the whole nine yards. But, like many in his generation, he is largely a technology neophyte. He’s perpetually 15 years behind on every major technology advancement – except for Facebook.

And, like most ex-hippies, his posts are typically equal parts weird and inspiring. For example, a few years ago, my dad invented a fictional horse, and then gave the horse (“Bobby”) a separate Facebook profile in order to document the its exploits in the golden age of silver screen cowboys. It is both endearing... and uncomfortably strange.
