With all the useful insight Google Analytics provides why wouldn’t you use it? It’s free and relatively simple to set up too. As a Teespring seller you can click on “real-time” view and watch as people browse your shop. Also, if you use any third party promotion tools like Mailchimp you can also sync up your email marketing campaigns to track buyer behavior.
So what are some of the main insights Teespring sellers use from Google Analytics? You’ll probably spend most of your time in the “Behavior” and “Acquisition” sections of your analytics dashboard. These sections can tell you where your shoppers come from (acquisition) and how they interact with your content (behavior).

When using the SRC= parameter in URLs to track the source, Google Analytics will treat each visit to a single page with different parameter value as visits to different pages (/my-awesome-shirt?src=fb1 will be treated as a different page than /my-awesome-shirt?src=fb2).
It’s much better to use Google’s standard UTM tags – which are created for this exact purpose – of tracking traffic sources, types of posts, media and locations which works best for you. Using UTM tags, you will see all visits to a given page aggregated, and will be able to break it down by the traffic source. Moreover, all of the data in the UTM tags will automatically be assigned to the sale, so you’ll not only be able to track how much traffic you generate with each post on social media but also how much sales they generate.
