Google Analytics is an incredibly powerful tool. It has long been the backbone of every digital marketers’ tech stack but it isn’t perfect: Google Analytics only provides insights on individual visits, not accounts or companies.
This creates a gap for B2B marketers when they’re trying to uncover how their marketing efforts are impacting revenue.
That gap is about to be filled by Leadfeeder’s Google Analytics Connector. The Connector seamlessly integrates with Google Analytics to show company level data as custom dimensions, including company name, website, industry revenue, and more.
The Google Analytics Connector transforms Google Analytics into a B2B marketing tool. By expanding traditional Google Analytics reports with B2B data, you’ll be able to, for example:
Identify the exact campaigns driving valuable companies.
Tie revenue back to your marketing activities.
Reveal the companies that read your blog, click on your ads, or engage with your brand awareness campaigns.
Prove the true ROI of Your Marketing Activities by tying marketing sourced and influenced revenue back to related marketing campaigns and investment.
Gain insight into which PPC campaigns are driving your ideal customers and how they are engaging with your website.

Example 1: Company name attribute
Example 2: Industry attribute
Example 3: Employee count attribute
NOTE: Please note that data received from GA Connector might occasionally differ from data received in your Leadfeeder Web Application due to the fact that GA connector relies solely on IP address to provide real-time data while Leadfeeder Web Visitor has time to combine IP addresses with other resources in our database since it is not real-time. We do not recommend comparing those two products. You can also try to install the Google Analytics script and Leadfeeder script directly into the code.
If you are not receiving any data please go on your website and add the following parameter.
