How To Integrate ActiveCampaign with Wicked Reports for Lead Attribution and Email Tracking

The easy 1 minute process to integrate ActiveCampaign and Wicked Reports.

Integrating ActiveCampaign to Wicked Reports sends your new leads from ActiveCampaign to Wicked Reports.  This allows Wicked Reports to track and attribute these new leads to the marketing spend and customer lifetime value from your ad platforms and revenue sources.

An additional benefit of our deep integration with ActiveCampaign is that email clicks are automatically tracked - no UTM setup required.  Wicked can take those clicks, compare cross-channel against other advertising channels, and determine if email receives credit for your daily sales.  This happens automatically after you complete this 1 minute connection process.

What does this mean for you?

  • ActiveCampaign leads get retrieved each day by Wicked Reports and attributed against clicks and sales.
  • You no longer need to worry about UTMs on your Email Links.
  • We’re going to be pulling your historical email click data and attributing historical emails to your sales (even before you used Wicked Reports)
  • Email click counts in Wicked Reports will match ActiveCampaign click counts.
  • Wicked can generate Cohort Analysis reporting between your ActiveCampaign leads and your shopping cart & order system revenue.

Integration Steps

To integrate with ActiveCampaign, we require that you add your API URL and API KEY. You need to get these values from your ActiveCampaign account:
  1. Log into ActiveCampaign and go to My Settings
  2. Click the Developer menu option
  3. Copy the API URL and API KEY into the Wicked Reports Authorizations
  4. Go to Wicked Reports Setup->Authorizations menu option.
  5. Find ActiveCampaign in the Contacts column.  Click connect to start the process.
  6. Paste these values into the appropriate field in the ActiveCampaign Authorizations in Wicked Reports

What Happens Next

Wicked Reports will pull all historical lead data from ActiveCampaign to seed your account attribution.  This allows us to correctly identify these leads as already existing leads in the event they click,optin, or otherwise engage with your marketing funnels.  We can then attribute revenue to their actions using the correct attribution models.

Each morning at about 2am EST we will pull the previous day's new leads and attribute the marketing responsible for creating these new leads.  Anytime in the future when these new leads buy, we can attribute the revenue back to the marketing that created the lead and update the ROI accordingly.

Once you have authorized your order systems, we will pull sales & revenue data and then create cohort reporting between your ActiveCampaign lead data and your order revenue data.

Wicked Reports auto-detects new lead and re-engaged lead conversion points automatically with this integration.  We track these conversions back to marketing clicks and spend, and attribute the future sales and revenue from your shopping cart and order systems using various attribution models.

Note on ActiveCampaign Email Tracking

Wicked Reports will NOT be reporting on the UTMs you use in your ActiveCampaign emails.  Google Analytics will still use them, but Wicked Reports will not. We automatically determine the UTM tracking based on your campaign and email names.

Remember, you still need to be using the Wicked Reports Tracking Code on your entire tech stack for us to track the customer journey for you.
