Try Attribution Beta in Google Analytics

Google has released a new feature in Google Analytics - Attribution Beta

If you wonder what is attribution is? Let me explain the same

Attribution helps you to understand which channel and campaigns helped you to achieve the conversions

Eg: A Customer would have bought a watch in Amazon. But in the buying process, he would have lot of touchpoints

2. He left the website without purchasing. Later he will be followed several watch brand images (display ads)
3. Then the next day, he visits amazon.com direct and searched for the specific Casio watch in black and made the purchase (direct)
