@francesca - Yup, I was able to get that URL too when I started to create my Google Analytics Goals.
Unfortunately, without the final “Thank You” / confirmation step (and being sure it has our Google Analytics Tracking on it), we can’t create a full Funnel / Goal visualization in Google Analytics.
What you’re pointing to is exactly what I’m going for – to find out exactly how many people:
(1) Visit my page/s
(2) Choose a tier
(3) Get to the /signup page
(4) Complete the signup process
That gives me some very specific data on not just who is getting where, and what’s working, but also the data to start retargeting people and walking them through the process.
I also want to take this one step further, and specifically set the same info up for Facebook. Then I could literally target ads to people based on exactly what they have done (or not done).
It’s more than just data - it’s potentially data we can use to help people complete the process, become patrons, and potentially even help improve the long-term stick rate.
I hope that Patreon creates a better Google Analytics Goal Tracking FAQ, just like Shopify did.
