Calculate the complete LTV of paying customers and the long-term ROI of ad spend even when sales happen weeks after the initial ad click with Google Analytics API integration combined with Able CDP first-party tracking and attribution
Google Analytics is the most popular web and app analytics platform, however 30-40% of conversions in Google Analytics often have a 'direct' or incorrect source, as well as not being attributed to the actual landing page that the customer first saw or found in an organic search engine. This happens because Google Analytics creates a separate session for the returning customer when a different device is used or if browser privacy features block Google Analytics cookies. These issues become even more pronounced when a deal is closed offline, in a CRM or when a subscription payment is taken after a trial period, as well as in apps where the subscription event happens on a separate app domain not connected with the marketing website.
Able also connects to the new Google Analytics 4, helping to start accumulate data there before Universal Analytics shuts down in July 2023. Able makes it easy to migrate to GA4 as no changes to tracking are required to integrate with Google Analytics 4 Measurement Protocol API; Able's implementation of the integration takes care of transforming the events as required to be sent to GA4.
Able CDP tracks website page views and form submissions to attribute each customer to the original source. It records Google Analytics Client Id for each lead and attributes all future conversions to it, allowing you to report the complete LTV by source correctly in Google Analytics.
Able offers an off-the-shelf integration between your CMS/CRM and Google Analytics to track each customer payment and their entire journey from the landing page to purchase. Able integrates any web form with any major CRM system, tracking lead sources and sending form lead to CRM and marketing services along with the UTM and referrer parameters. In addition to reporting sales by source within CRM, this allows to visualize journey of each paying customer in Google Analytics.
Able attributes back-end conversion to the original visitor using it's own database. It attributes the purchase conversion to the original visit using first-touch attribution and sends conversions directly to Google Analytics API not relying on browser tracking. This allows Able to track, attribute and integrate purchase conversions that happen long time after the original visit that produced a lead has happened.
Once Able CDP is integrated, it feeds constant data into Google Analytics, allowing to leverage its reporting features.
Able CDP is a low-cost solution that combines browser tracking with server-side API integrations, linking website activity and Facebook or Google Ads click IDs with server-side sales to build a complete journey of each customer across website and back-office tools. This allows to visualise journey of each paying customer in Google Analytics looking up a customer in Google Analytics User Explorer by Client Id.
All purchases made by the same customer are attributed to the past lead and visitor activity automatically and sent to Google Analytics Measurement Protocol API throughout entire customer lifecycle, no matter how long it is or whether the tracking cookies are present at the time of conversion.
Able gets conversions from external systems such as CRMs, e-commerce platforms and payment providers right into Google Analytics without a need for complex integrations or data mapping.

Google Analytics 4, also known as GA4, is a new version of Google Analytics. A major difference many website owners and web marketers notice is its sole reliance on last click attribution. It results in unexpected traffic sources shown for meaningful conversions such as purchases that happen later in the funnel.

“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.”
