Marketo Measure Parameters Explained

To gain further insight from the use of UTMs, Marketo Measure appends custom parameters to your ads in Google AdWords, Bing Ads and Facebook Ads. Marketo Measure integrates with these platforms to automate most of the setup process. If you select to use auto-tagging, Marketo Measure will automatically append its parameters to the URLs of your ads. Marketo Measure will also automatically download your marketing costs from the platforms and load them into the Marketo Measure app.
