How-to set up Goals to track your LeadPlayer video

I Love LeadPlayer!   (Disclamer: I am not an affiliate. I am simply a happy customer of both LeadPlayer and LeadPages) It is not only a great tool to build your e-mail list, but it also comes with pre-integrated Google Analytics tracking.

This tracking code generates events (Play, Load, OptIn-Submit, etc) in your Google Analytics account to know how effective your videos are. Since you can set-up goals using events, tracking your e-mail submit coming from your LeadPlayer videos take less than 3 minutes.
