Hey Marketo Mega Minds,

 

We'd like to be able to track email clicks with an href that directs them to an external website. We do a LOT of partner and cobranded emails and would like to be able to track the actual clicks within Marketo.

 

Let's use "http://www.mydomain.com" and "http://www.partnerdomain.com" as examples

 

Scenario 1

This link DOES have Marketo Tracking enabled. <a href="http://www.partnerdomain.com" target="_blank">Click Here</a>

When tracking is enabled, it will NOT send them to the partner domain and redirects to mydomain.com

 

Scenario 2

This link does NOT have Marketo Tracking enabled. <a class="mktNoTrack" href="http://www.partnerdomain.com" target="_blank">Click Here</a>

When tracking is NOT enabled, it will send them to the partner domain but it will NOT track the click.

 

Scenario 3 - Using a token

This link is populated using a token. <a href="http://{{my.Partner Token}}" target="_blank">Click Here</a>

Same as scenario 1, when tracking is enabled, it will NOT send them to the partner domain and redirects to mydomain.com

 

How can email clicks be tracked in Marketo AND direct them to an external URL?
