What is parameter management?
In the realm of digital marketing, parameter management refers to the process of organizing, controlling, and monitoring various parameters or settings associated with marketing campaigns. These parameters can include elements such as targeting criteria, message personalization, audience segmentation, scheduling, and budget allocation.
Effective parameter management ensures that marketing efforts are optimized, tailored, and agile, enabling marketers to make data-driven decisions and better understand the performance of their campaigns. By having a centralized system to manage these parameters, businesses can fine-tune their marketing strategies, improve customer engagement, and ultimately boost their return on investment (ROI).

How to check UTM parameters in SFMC?
To check UTM parameters in SFMC (Salesforce Marketing Cloud), you can use the Query Studio or Automation Studio feature. Here are the steps to check UTM parameters:
- Go to Query Studio or Automation Studio in SFMC.
- Create a new query or automation.
- In the query or automation settings, select the data extension or data source where the UTM parameters are stored.
- In the query or automation settings, add a filter for the specific UTM parameter you want to check (e.g. utm_source).
- Run the query or automation to see the results.
Alternatively, you can also check UTM parameters in the tracking data for your email sends. When you send an email with UTM parameters, the tracking data will show the UTM parameters and their values for each recipient who clicked on a link in the email. You can view this data in the Email Studio or Tracking tab in SFMC.
What are the 5 things you can track with UTM parameters?
UTM parameters allow you to track five important pieces of information about your website traffic:
Source: The source parameter tells you where your traffic is coming from, such as a search engine, social media platform, or referring website.
Medium: The medium parameter tells you the type of traffic, such as organic search, paid search, social media, or email.
Campaign: The campaign parameter lets you track specific marketing campaigns, such as a product launch, holiday sale, or email newsletter.
Term: The term parameter is typically used in paid search campaigns to track the specific keyword that triggered the ad.
Content: The content parameter is used to track different versions of the same ad or link, such as two different images or calls to action.
