Connecting Your Website With Moosend To Track User Activity
Make the most of marketing automation and reporting features by connecting your website or Ecommerce store with Moosend. Watch this video to learn how to do this manually or with a plugin and create highly personalized campaigns.
Hello! Welcome to another Moosend tutorial!
In this video, I will show you how to connect your store or website to Moosend. This way you will be able to use Moosend Website Tracking that lets you track your visitors’ actions and tie them to your campaigns.
By tracking these actions you will later be able to create highly personalized experiences for every visitor by setting up your own automations.
But we’ll talk about this in another tutorial.
There are two ways of connecting and tracking your website with your Moosend account.
If you have a custom website, you can install the tracking code manually. In that case, you will have to add the code snippets to the head of your website HTML.
If you are using a CMS platform you can use one of our tracking plugins.
For the example of this video, I will show you how to connect your website to Moosend by using a WordPress demo website and the Woocommerce plugin.
On the Moosend Dashboard, click on the Settings button.
On the menu that appears, click the Websites option.
Click on the Add Website button to add a new website to your list.
Fill in the domain of your website on the Website Domain area.
Click on the Next button.
Now it’s time to install the tracking plugin. You can either click the Install on the plugin you want to use, download and then upload to your website admin area, or install it directly from your website admin area, or Dashboard as we call it.
We’ll go with the second option!
On your website’s Dashboard, click on the Plugins option on the menu. Then, click on the Add New button on the top.
On the Search bar, type Moosend website tracking, and when the plugin appears, click Install Now. Once it is installed, click the Activate button.
Now, let’s go back to your Moosend account. Once you connect your website, a website Id is generated automatically. Copy this, and go back to your website admin area.
Click on the Settings option of your Moosend Website Tracking plugin, and paste the website Id on the field there.
Then click Save Changes.
A confirmation message will appear on the top.
Keep in mind that your website will be verified as soon as the first event is tracked.
This means that someone has to visit your website, and browse a page or view a product as we do here on this website.
When this happens, go back and check the tracking status of your website, and it will be verified.
This means that your domain is successfully connected with Moosend’s tracking system.
Once your website is connected to your Moosend account and verified, a new mailing list will be created automatically, when the first user subscribes and becomes identified.
Simple as that! Now that your website is connected to Moosend you can start tracking your visitors’ actions and create highly personalized campaigns.
Happy email marketing!
