Are you transferring your leads to Keap but unsure of their origin?

Here’s a method to help you track the lead source in Keap (like organic search, social paid, email marketing, referral, etc.) along with your lead details.

By doing this, you can fine-tune your marketing strategies based on the best-performing sources and create performance reports such as leads by channel, source, campaign, and more.

Let’s get into it.

How to track the source of leads in Keap

How Leadsources collects lead source data

When visitors land on your website, their browser saves information in a cookie: the site they came from, the landing page they accessed, the keyword they clicked, and so on.

LeadSources collects this information, organizes it, and integrates it into your form as hidden fields.

When visitors fill out your form, they input data in the visible fields (name, email, etc.). Simultaneously, leadsources.io automatically adds lead source data to the form as hidden fields (channel, source, etc.).

Once the form is submitted, the lead source data is sent along with their responses to Keap. You can view the lead source together with the lead name, email, and other details in the same Keap entry.

How Leadsources passes lead source data into Keap

Begin by creating an account on leadsources.io. You’ll receive a small code snippet to add to your website, with easy-to-follow installation instructions provided in our detailed guide.

Next, you’ll need to add hidden fields to your form. LeadSources is compatible with any form builder, and we’ve prepared a tutorial to help you embed these fields within your form builder.

When a visitor fills out and submits the form on your website, LeadSources will populate those hidden fields with lead source information:

  • Channel
  • Source
  • Campaign
  • Term
  • Content
  • Landing Page
  • Landing Page Subfolder

Upon successful form submission, the lead source details from the hidden fields are transferred to Keap. You’ll now find this information within your leads dashboard on Keap.

This provides you with valuable insights into where each lead originates!

How to analyze the lead source data

What data is tracked in Keap?

As mentioned earlier, you can track not just the source of your lead but also several details related to that source.

LeadSources can track 7 different data points for each lead. These are:

  • Channel: The type of traffic. LeadSources classifies your leads into 10 channels: paid search, organic search, email marketing, paid social, organic social, referral, direct traffic, affiliates, display advertising, other UTM-tagged campaigns.
  • Source: The specific source or platform that sends the visitors. For example, for “organic social,” the source could be Facebook, Instagram, etc.
  • Campaign: The name of the particular marketing campaign. For instance, when running multiple campaigns on Google Ads, you can track which specific campaign your leads came from.
  • Term: The keyword targeted by a specific campaign. Example: you run a Google Ads campaign called “search campaign corporate lawyers.” LeadSources categorizes your leads by targeted keyword: “corporate lawyer in new york,” “corporate lawyer in miami,” etc.
  • Content: The exact part of your ad that was clicked.
  • Landing Page: The URL of the landing page where the lead arrived. Examples: domain.com/services/corporate-lawyer-miami.
  • Landing Page Subfolder: This specifies the subfolder of the landing page. Example: a visitor lands on the page domain.com/services/corporate-lawyer-miami. The subfolder tracked is “services.”

How to create performance reports?

Leads by channel report

First, segment your leads by channel to see which channels generated the most leads.

Next, focus on a specific channel, for instance, search paid (e.g., Google Ads), and segment your Google Ads leads into campaigns to understand which campaign is generating most of your leads.

Then, to go deeper into a specific campaign’s performance, you can further segment the leads using the “volume of leads by keyword” and the “volume of leads by ad” reports.

Leads by keyword report

Sales source reports

Knowing which ads and keywords are driving most of your leads is great. But do these ads and keywords contribute to your revenue?

By sending your leads to Keap, you can generate similar reports by sales.

Consider the following example:

ChannelsSearch PaidSocial Paid
Leads5075
Sales56
Average order value$150$100
Revenue$750$600

You ran ads on Google and Facebook, and the initial “leads by channel” report showed that social paid ads generated more leads than search paid ads.

After a few weeks, you analyze which leads converted into paying customers and find that the search paid channel generated more revenue with fewer leads than the social paid channel. You conclude that you should increase your search paid budget.
