Funnel Tracking Problem in Clickfunnels Solved!

The primary problem with collecting data on your Clickfunnels website is that when the user moves from one funnel to another, there is no connection between the two, and the same user is shown as a different user. 

This creates confusion in mapping the entire customer journey. People also find it hard to integrate Clickfunnels with Google Ads. Therefore face troubles in sending the data without signal loss to Google Ads. 

To overcome these problems, you can use a solution like CustomerLabs CDP. It helps you collect the data across the funnel, map the user data, create 360-degree profiles, and activate the data across Google Ads (Search Ads, Display Ads, RLSA, etc.)

Google’s Recommendations

Google’s ad algorithms are updating every day and are becoming data-craving machines. AI-powered Machine Learning-based campaigns like Performance Max seek first-party data from marketers. These campaigns use first-party data audience signals to train themselves. It helps them to expand their audience net in the right direction, targeting the right people with relevant ads.

To send the audience signals without loss, Google recommends collecting the data and sending it on the server side i.e., to implement server-side tracking. 

Turn on enhanced conversions in Google Ads after you set up server-side tracking. The enhanced conversions will automatically track the form fields on your website (first-party data) and send it to Google Ads. This helps Google Ads map the conversions accurately to the ad campaigns.

Track conversions across funnels without any data loss

Using CustomerLabs CDP, you can track conversion actions of the user across your website, and funnels without any data loss.

360-degree profile and Customer Journey Mapping

Map the user data across multiple landing pages and sources, to create a 360-degree profile for each user. This 360-degree profile gives you a complete picture of the entire customer journey. 

Whenever the user lands on your website, CustomerLabs automatically creates a user and assigns a unique external ID. This profile is updated as the user takes actions on your website, across their entire journey. Assigning these external IDs and sending them to ad platforms increases match rates, event match quality, etc.

Custom audience segmentation

Segment the users based on your funnel strategies & their behaviors. These custom audience segments help you run behavioral retargeting without having to share the behavioral data directly with ad platforms. (Meta is banned for behavioral targeting in the EU. In such moments, this first-party data is what comes to your aid and saves your ad campaigns.)
