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.

This article walks you through how to find Leadfeeder Google Analytics Connector data in your Google Analytics account, including examples of interesting reports you can gather.
