Many dealerships like to view their PPC Ad performance inside Google Analytics. AutoLeadStar sends UTM codes for Google and Facebook traffic which can be easily viewed inside Analytics to monitor Acquire preference.
Acquire sends the following UTM codes:
utm_source = google / facebook (according to the platform)
utm_medium = cpc
utm_campaign = Name of the Objective and Bundle
utm_content = search / display / social (according to the channel)
