Analytics are not only used to measure the daily traffic. Here are some of the ways you can use Google Analytics to track your sales:

On-site Promotions

You can have affiliate partners to send traffic to your e-commerce site. They offer special discount coupons that will encourage customers to shop on your site. Google Analytics could be used to track the referring sites for every visitor. This way they can create personalized banners for each visitor.

So, when the visitor is redirected to your site after clicking on the coupon, they don’t get confused as to why they are receiving the coupon. You can use the Google Analytics to find the customers’ demographic information, interests, behavior, location, etc. to create personalized promotion which are more effective than generalized promotions.
