How to track email opens and link clicks with G-Lock Analytics

Written by Julia. Posted in Articles, G-Lock Analytics

Email marketing is based on three main products or tools:

After you create your email newsletter and send an email newsletter to your opt-in mailing list, what happens to your email next? Is it delivered? Opened? Links clicked?

Email tracking is the process of recording every recipient’s action on your mass email campaigns. When a subscriber opens your email or clicks a link in your message, his action is recorded and stored inside the email tracking system database.
