Tracking SEM/Paid Ad Campaigns in Marketo

We are scaling our paid advertising campaigns quickly, and I am curious to find out how others are tracking their campaigns in Marketo.

Are you using a traffic cop campaign that pushes a lead to individual programs based on keyword, campaign, content, channel (Google/Bing...), etc.? Or do you use a unique program for just one of these? Or a combination of them?

Like many others, I want to be able to see the ROI from the channel and the campaign at a minimum.

Using UTM codes seems to make the most sense. And grabbing the parameters from these to distribute leads to the individual programs. This way we don't have to create a unique LP or Form for each campaign.

The challenge is being able to report. For example, how do you report individual ads by channel and campaign without having a unique program for each?

Would love to get your thoughts.
