How to Track Links and Button Clicks in Your Membership Site

Incorporating a calls-to-action in your membership site is a huge part of your business' content strategy.

Whether it be links or buttons, it is important to be able to track each click to better understand how your customers are interacting with your membership website.

Although Google Analytics is a great way to track links, another great way that we recommend is by using a tool called MonsterInsights. In this post, we’ll show you how to track links and button clicks in your WordPress membership site using MonsterInsights.

What Is MonsterInsights And Why Should I Use It?

All it takes is the click of a button to enable all of the features that would probably take you days to figure out if you were to manually work with Google Analytics! This plugin is easy for beginners to learn and doesn't require any technical savvy to use.
