Landing page installation

Why does a campaign have to have a landing page?

The landing page is where all your referrals will land upon following a referral link. The landing page must capture the interest of your referrals and offer them a call to action to get them to convert and subscribe to your campaign.

The landing page is hosted on your domain, with your branding. Your visitors will not notice that you are using a third party solution to track visitors, referrers and referrals.

Through the landing page, EarlyPrarot will monitor and track the following:

  • Unique visitors both referred and non-referred
  • The channel where your referrals are coming from: Eg. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, Skype, Email invite or a Referral Link
  • The IP address of the visitors that land on your landing and hence determine the country of origin of the visitor

How will EarlyParrot track all this?

EarlyParrot gathers information via a javascript that has to be installed on the landing page. Installing the script is very easy and does not require technical expertise.

Install Landing Page Script

Method 1: Placing landing page script directly on the landing page

In the Integrations steps, in the create/edit campaign wizard, you will get to install the landing page. Click on the configure button under the Landing Page.

Copy the provided script and paste it in the HEAD section of your landing page. Enter the URL of the landing page in the provided input box and click Verify Installation.

EarlyParrot will verify your landing page installation and will guide you accordingly.

Whilst placing scripts directly on pages will work, we strongly recommend you use Google Tag Manager to install and manage your scripts. Check out Method 2 for more information on how to install Landing Page scripts via Google Tag Manager.

Method 2: Using Google Tag Manager to install your landing page script

Google Tag Manager will allow you to install, test, deploy and even rollback scripts with ease.
