Before we get started, let's look at how our Sales Tracking works in Deadline Funnel.
Similar to triggering a deadline, Deadline Funnel Sales Tracking works through a tag being added to your contact in ConvertKit. But instead of creating a tracking record for your subscriber under the 'Tracking Started' section of your Analytics and assigning a deadline to it when the tag is added, it will create a tracking record under the 'Sales Tracked' section. This Sales Tracking record will have the email of the subscriber, the date of the purchase, and the amount and currency that you specify when you set up the tag.
It's important to note that a Sales Tracking record will be added to your Deadline Funnel campaign any time the tag you choose is added to a contact in ConvertKit. So it's very important that you use a tag that only gets applied when the purchase you want to track happens.
How to set up Sales Tracking with ConvertKit
Ideally, you will already have your email platform connected to Deadline Funnel under the Integrations tab. But if you haven't connected them yet, you can review this guide, where you'll find instructions on how to connect your accounts.
Once that step is complete, you can continue with the rest of this guide.
Head to 'Integrations' in the top blue bar and select the campaign:
Now select 'New Integration', then choose 'Create Sales Tracking' in the popup and click next:
Make sure ConvertKit is selected and click next:
Now select your ConvertKit account and click next:
Choose your currency and the value for each sale, select your Purchased tag, and then click 'Create Webhook':
When you click 'Create Webhook', Deadline Funnel will create a Rule in your ConvertKit account that runs the Sales Tracking webhook based on the Purchased tag being added. So now all you need to do is make sure you have a Rule set up that is adding that Purchased tag when someone actually purchases your product, and you're all set!
You can view your results in the 'Sales Tracked' section of Analytics:
