Just like me, you are running multiple campaigns that require tracking. Good campaign tracking is a major part of your success as a digital marketer. It’s great that there are tools like this by Google and this one by Facebook, that allow you to create UTM tags on the fly. However, what if you have multiple clients or multiple campaigns to track. Where do you organize all your campaign URLs?
The solution is simple. Why not build and manage all of your campaign URLs from a single Google Sheet? There’s nothing new or groundbreaking here. I’m just sharing one of my campaign UTM generator / builder templates that I’ve used over the years. I hope you find it useful too.
This Google Sheet template for UTM tag management will help a number of user types including…
Digital marketers and agencies
You manage a great number of clients. Each client may have several campaigns at any given point in time. It’s convenient to keep all tracking URLs in a single place.
What if you need to create more UTM tags for a campaign you’ve just run? No problem. Use this UTM generator to drag the cells down the sheet and your campaign URLs will auto-populate.
Small business owners
You’re running a multi-channel campaign for your business. Yes, Google Auto-tagging does the trick for Google campaigns, but what if you’re driving traffic from Facebook and Twitter all at the same time and within one specific campaign?
Organizing all your tracking URLs in a single spreadsheet will help you keep your URLs organized. If you need to generate more UTM tags for future campaigns, just drag the cells.
