Reference: UTM Parameters to Use in Landing Page URLs

  • Updated

As explained in Landing Page URL and UTM Parameters, it’s important that you construct the landing page URL for a campaign ad by appending UTM parameters to the core website address that points to your online content. There are three UTM parameters that we recommend you include in your Demandbase ad campaign landing page URLs:

  • utm_source
  • utm_medium
  • utm_campaign

UTM_SOURCE

The UTM_SOURCE parameter identifies the source of the traffic to your landing page. The value for the parameter can be the name of the vendor (for example, demandbase) or whatever else helps identify the source.

UTM_MEDIUM

The UTM_MEDIUM parameter describes the specific marketing element that the user clicked, such as a display ad, email, social media posting, or cost-per-click. Typically, the value of the parameter for Demandbase customers assigning a landing page URL to a campaign ad refers to a banner ad placement or size (for example, display).

UTM_CAMPAIGN

The UTM_CAMPAIGN parameter refers to the overall campaign associated with the ad where you’ve placed the landing page URL. For example, a possible value for this parameter is a short description of the campaign, such as ProductA_Launch.

EXAMPLE

Here's an example of a landing page URL used in a Demandbase ad campaign that includes all three of the recommended UTM parameters:

https://www.acme.com/product_page/?utm_source=demandbase&utm_medium=display&utm_campaign=ProductA_Launch

Tip: For more information about creating a URL with UTM parameters, see the URL builders page on the Google Analytics website.
