When is it advisable to configure a Campaign from parameters ?

The configuration of a campaign from parameters allows to aggregate traffic coming from many different domains and to attribute it to a single campaign, which will be presented in reports as a source of traffic on its own.
To configure a campaign from parameters, it is necessary to add to the campaign destination URL the parameters given by ShinyStat so as to generate a special tracking URL.
To attribute the tracked data to the configured campaign, it is enough that the banner or the advertising message, present on the different websites, point at the generated URL.
By configuring a campaign from parameters, ShinyStat Business allows you to know the number of visits coming from an advertising message containing the campaign parameter.

Campaigns from parameters are suitable in the following cases:

- CAMPAIGNS ON DIFFERENT WEBSITES, in order to aggregate data coming from different domains and to consider the campaign on the whole.
- E-MAIL MARKETING, NEWSLETTER: in order to verify the return from e-mail marketing actions in terms of clicks ,visits, conversions.
