Great article Kristen, thank you!

I do have a question however, about question 9 (finding out how many leads clicked in your email to your landing page): can't you find that in the Email Link Performance report? I have trouble seing where in the Landing Page Performance report you would find this data.

That said, this article is great, and I really look forward to the next one!

Hi Kristen Carmean , the link for this post doesn't seem to be working where you've linked it in the Targeting and Personalisation post and the Admin and Operation post. The Program Fundamentals and Lead Lifecycle links are not functioning either. The content is still here, which is fantastic (thank you for all the test questions!), but thought I'd let you know the links aren't working correctly.

Does anyone know which reports have custom columns? I know Lead Performance is one of them...
