product changes

The most recent updates to the LeadBoxer product.

December 2018 Update

Original AND Last UTM tags

Working with cross-channel marketing, whereby you have multiple entry points to your landing pages, it’s a good idea to keep track of which sources or campaigns are generating traffic and which are converting on your content.

We now measure and display both the original (first) and last UTM tag that we have captured, making it easier to attribute a lead or sale to the original or last engagement that we tracked.

November 2018 Update

Complete Lead Pixel Rewrite

A core part of our platform is of course the tracking pixel that captures the interactions and engagement of website visitors.

Therefore we are happy to announce that we have completely rewritten the code that produces this javascript. The new code contains some state-of-the-art features such as:

  • can be loaded async
  • ability to set custom user ID’s
  • ability to lookup email or user ID’s to realise cross-browser unification of users
  • ability to track cross domains
  • and multiple features we will be releasing in the near future


October 2018 Update

Cross device tracking

We have updated the lead pixel (tracking javascript) so that you can now set the user-ID through url value. This is usefull if you would like to create a closed system in where you want to make sure that all events (even on different devices or platforms are grouped under one single profile)

In short If the lb_uid parameter is set in a landing url, we are updating cookie to use its value as user_id.

August 2018 updates

Channel property grouping

We now categorise each new lead and customer into channel groupings, meaning you can see how see how each lead or customer originally arrived or was referred to your site (Original Channel), and in their last session/visit (last Channel).

Channel groups are defined with the following rules:

  • Organic: referrer contains google|yahoo|bing|etc
  • Social: referrer contains twitter|facebook|linkedin|etc
  • Referral: referrer exists and not equal to ‘organic’ or ‘social’
  • Email: utm_medium = ’email’
  • Paid: utm_medium matches regex ^(cpc|ppc|paidsearch)$
  • Direct: utm_source = ‘direct’ or utm_medium = unknown
  • Other: everything else

In our next Sprint we will add these to the filter options so you can create segments/filters based on channel.


Send test email notifications

One functionality our customers asked for was the ability to test the emails that will be sent out automatically on a daily or weekly basis. This can now be accomplished from the smartlist / segment edit window.

Other Updates

  • We have configured the Daily / Weekly notifications to continue as per usual after a trial has expired, however the data is limited to 3 results.
  • Added another node to our script serving cloud, to improve response times on the US East Coast
  • Mapped additional Form properties to specific LeadBoxer values
