Why do EasyWebinar and Google Ads Need to Be Connected?
EasyWebinar is an online platform where individuals or businesses can create webinars, with customers purchasing subscriptions to the EasyWebinar site. Google Ads reporting is a powerful tool to identify ROI of ad campaigns and optimize marketing strategy.
Both platforms contain a rich set of sales data, but there are often significant discrepancies between them due to missing data.
Here are some reasons why conversion tracking built into Google Ads is not enough:
Combining browser and server-side tracking to report conversions via the server-to-server Google Ads API integration solves these problems.
Able CDP allows you to visualise your customer's journey and see exactly which marketing strategies are performing the best for your business.
A Complete Solution for Integrating EasyWebinar and Google Ads
Able Customer Data Platform is the ultimate EasyWebinar and Google Ads integration.
It combines browser tracking with server API integrations, linking website activity with purchases on the back-end to build a complete journey of each customer across EasyWebinar and Google Ads.
This allows you to attribute 99% of sales to the correct marketing source, ad click and landing page and obtain data to inform strategy.
All of this can be done in Able CDP without coding and complex manual set-up of the connection between EasyWebinar and Google Ads. Able already knows how to connect marketing data between EasyWebinar and Google Ads.
How Able CDP Integrates EasyWebinar and Google Ads
Able makes it much easier to report in Google Ads on actual EasyWebinar revenue rather than conversions to leads, attributing all subsequent EasyWebinar revenue to the original visitor and campaign – even if it occurs weeks after the initial visit.
Able CDP combines browser and back-end tracking to:
Able tracks EasyWebinar Event Registration Widget leads and attributes subsequent purchases to their sources. Able offers form tracking that recognizes EasyWebinar event registration widgets installed on the page automatically. It tracks leads submitted through the widget, linking lead details such as email with the website visitor. Any purchases made by the same customer, regardless of when and how, are then attributed to the original website visitor and marketing source. This allows you to report on currently missing conversions that happen after browser analytics and tracking cookies expire or not available on devices, then send conversions with complete customer match parameters to Google Ads, fixing tracking for IOS traffic.
4 Steps to Connect EasyWebinar with Google Ads by Using Able CDP
Complete the sign up form to create a trial account.
After signing up for a free account, Able CDP will prompt you to add code to your website.
This tracking code will record ad click ids and details of the original landing page visit, as well as lead form submissions, allowing to attribute customers to website visitors. Able CDP uses its tracking to capture UTM parameters, referrer URL and landing page URL, store them in its own attribution database together with the personal identifiers such as email or phone, entered by customer in lead and order forms, allowing it to associate all future customer activity with the original website visitor source.
Add lead form URLs to the HTML Forms Tracking section to let Able automatically recognize the sign-up and lead forms you're using. Any standard lead form widgets that we could detect during the account setup will appear in the Dynamic Lead Forms Tracking section.
Press "Generate" in the Get Code section to generate a unique tracking code to add to your site.
Able CDP page view tracking doesn't install its own cookies and relies on third-party identifiers such as Google Analytics Client Id to connect customer activity between website pages. Please enable cross-domain measurement in Google Analytics if your landing and lead/order pages are hosted on different domains.
Tracking purchases made by leads who entered a funnel through the EasyWebinar Event Registration Widget is a common task, crucial to maximize ad ROI.
When EasyWebinar event registration widget is used in multiple-stage funnels, relying on tracking tags and pixels alone allows to attribute to the marketing sources only leads, with exact sources of later sales remaining unknown. Able Customer Data Platform solves tracking of EasyWebinar leads and follow-on purchases in such funnels.
How to Set Up
1. Google Ads Setup.
The first step to start using a server-to-server integration is to configure Google Ads. The Part 1 of the ‘Set up offline conversion tracking‘ guide in Google Ads Help covers two necessary steps to begin: enabling auto-tagging and setting up a Conversion Action – a hint telling Google Ads how to process your conversions.
(Google refers to all conversions that aren’t tracked by its JS tracking code as ‘offline’. They may not actually happen offline, such as in a store, and would more often be a result of online user activity.)
2. Google Ads Customer Data Terms
To make sure that all conversions are processed, the Google Ads account must have accepted Customer Data Terms. This only needs to be done once per account and the Data Terms will be valid for all conversions automatically.
Open Tools - Conversions - Settings - Method for measuring offline conversions. Check that Enhanced conversions for leads method is selected and accept customer data terms.
3. Connect Able to Google Ads
In Able's platform, there is a ‘Sign In With Google’ button that will grant Able access to your Google Ads API, allowing you to send purchase conversions to Google Ads.
4. Create compatible conversion action in Google Ads
To do so, open Tools - Conversions in Google Ads. Click New Conversion Action - Import - Other data sources or CRMs - Track conversions from clicks. Enter desired conversion and attribution parameters and create conversion.
5. Send Able events as Google Ads Conversion Actions
Select the new Google Ads credential, and choose ‘Purchase’ event type. Able will display a list of Google Ads Customers your Google account has access to manage. Choose the one that has the Conversion Action that has been created in Google Ads Manager in the first step.
Press ‘Save’ button to save settings. Able Customer Data Platform will start sending all purchases it attributed to Google Ads clicks to Google Ads API.
“A valuable insight we've got because of using Able Customer Data Platform is that display ads aren't working for us at all... we've been wasting money for years on paid display ads.
Before Able we'd be excited about every lead or email that came through, but after the last year we've determined that those don't convert at all.
And so we've been focusing on paid search, which does have return on investment.”
