Hi,

So we have an issue. We are using Contact Form 7 on our site, then it sends a webhook to zapier, then zapier sends the data to zendesk sell and creates a lead. The problem is we want to know where the lead comes from, ie: organic or from a paid google ad. Is there any integrations that can help us track whether a user has come to our site organically or from a paid google ad. Maybe some way with google tag manager or google analytics?

Thanks.

@CoolGuy use CF7 Webhooks (plugin wordpress https://wordpress.org/plugins/cf7-to-zapier/) that sends the data over, then setup UTM Tags in your Ads accordingly to your campaign (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033981?hl=en#zippy=%2Cin-this-article). And send the UTMs (https://contactform7.com/getting-default-values-from-the-context/) via this snippet in CF7:

[hidden utm default:get default:post_meta]

Hi,

So i tried the tag:

[hidden utm default:get default:post_meta]

So im not getting any sort of data when the webhook gets sent to zapier, it says ‘no data’. What sort of data is expected? is there any settings or any other setup needed for getting post_meta?

 

Thanks.
