I am trying to track which sales come from list broadcasts I am doing rather than from sales purchased from contacts being in an evergreen campaign.
I tried tagging all contacts I was sending my promo broadcast to, so I could search for product sales based on that tag later. The issue is that some contacts enter a different email when purchasing than what is on their contact record and a new contact is created. When this happens, I cannot do a tag search on the new contact to see that they purchased the product do to the promotional broadcast.
I have spent a day (and many hours with support) coming up with some possibilities for work arounds (all of which are a little tedious and complicated), so I wanted to check in with the community to hear thoughts on this.
Note: I cannot apply a tag as a purchase action for the product or apply a tag after a successful product purchase because some people not in the campaign could also receive that tag. Then I would be counting people who purchased but weren’t part of the promotion.
Any suggestions to get the most accurate numbers for purchases attributed to the promotion broadcast?
