Conversion analytics for Udemy courses and my current website

    Hello all,

    I am wondering if anyone can share a good source of information to achieve the following:

    I currently have conversion goals set up on my main website.
    I also have a seperate account integrated with my Udemy bio that tracks conversions of course purchases.
    One of those goals on my personal website is when a user clicks on an external link taking them to my Udemy course page.

    Udemy allows you to set up a Google tracking code on your account and analyse all of the data through this method, however there is a gap in the user journey between the two accounts.

    My Problem

    1. I know the user has converted on my site but clicking on the external link but I don't know that they have purchased my product by viewing the account connected to my main website.

    2. Within my Udemy account stats I know a user has come from my website and if they have purchased my course, but the chain is broken. I can't track the users journey.

    For example: 'User clicks link in Facebook > Blog Post > External Link > |BREAK| > Course Landing Page > Purchase'

    I have looked at guides that discuss including the same Google analytics code on both my main website and my Udemy profile but am also aware this can cause a lot of problems.

    I am really just looking for recommendations, resources and the best solution for implementation of this process.

    Appreciate any feedback anyone can offer on the topic.

    Many Thanks!
