By integrating Delacon’s call tracking solution with Google DoubleClick Search, you can track call data from paid online advertisements managed in DoubleClick. When a lead makes a call from a website landing page after clicking on an ad, Delacon will fire a conversion event to DoubleClick search. This data can be analysed in both Delacon’s reports and in DoubleClick.
You will be able to track actions and/or transactions. An action contains the Floodlight activities that count the number of times that users have visited a particular webpage after clicking on an ad and a transaction contains Floodlight activities that track the number of sales made or the number of items purchased. You can also capture the total value of each sale.
Before you begin the integration, you will need to contact your Delacon account manager and instruct them to activate the DoubleClick Search options in the Delacon system.
You should also make sure that the DS advertiser is enabled for the conversions API. To follow the standard Google process, refer to this Google support page.
The Floodlight segment must also have been created in DoubleClick. For more information on Floodlight groups and activities, refer to this Google article.
You must provide authorisation to a standard integration email id that Delacon uses.
Please provision ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ in the DS advertiser. Please follow the standard Google process described in this article.
