The three tools for tracking:
Use this spreadsheet to help you record your numbers.
(Some of these are affiliate links and I earn a commission when you sign up. I only recommend partners I have vetted and tools I personally use.)
What should you be tracking?
- Number of subscribers
- Open rates
- Click rates
- Advanced: how many buyers you get from an email
Tool for this is your email newsletter program.
Tool for this is the Insights/Analytics on the different social media tools
For your course:
- Number of visitors to your sales page
- How many sales you make
Tool is hopefully your course hosting software.
- Clicks from your affiliates
- Sales from your affiliates
- Payments needed and payments made
Tool is whatever program you are using to manage your affiliate program.
- Downloads an episode gets
- Unique listeners
- Downloads per episode
My software hosting tool – Simplecast – tracks all this for me.
- How many clicks a link gets
- What actions are taken
This is a big project to set this all up so just start with a small piece and get going with one of the link tracking tools. It will evolve and build over time.
