With the help of this parameter setting you will be able to learn whether the user came from some certain portal, or social network, etc. Thus, to build the link for each of these platforms you just need to put its name in “utm_source” parameter. For example, utm_source=linkedin or utm_source=facebook.

Basically, it identifies the method of sharing or the way your link appears on some source. For instance, you can put your URL into the text of sent messages, or published posts, or banners. For example, utm_medium=email or utm_medium=blogpost.
  3. Campaign. Campaign. Forasmuch you may conduct several advertising campaigns, you also need to realize why the user makes a click. In particular, it can be the name of some certain product or campaign strategy. For example, utm_campaign=launch-product or utm_campaign=promo-code.
