Since you don't have an ecommerce site, we'll optimize your campaign based on a Google Analytics goal instead of ecommerce data. To do this, you need to create a Goal within your Google Analytics account that tracks when visitors complete important actions on your website (like submitting your contact form, subscripting to your newsletter, or whatever action you deem most valuable to your business). These instructions explain how to create a Goal in Google Analytics: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1032415?hl=en. After you've created the Goal let us know the Goal # and Group # so we can configure your account to optimize targeting for visitors who reach this Goal while visiting your website.
I hope that helps, but if you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask!
Thank you so much for your kind words! I'll send this on to the team and they'll get it optimized for you. Unfortunately, our system will still send you the weekly email about setting up your ecommerce, but you can ignore those. Hopefully we'll get that changed soon and you won't see them anymore.
I'm Aaron and I'm helping cover David's accounts for him this week while he's on vacation. I have confirmed your goal is working correctly and your campaign will now be optimized by this goal. Have a nice afternoon.
I'm not sure if its ok to respond to this thread but I had the same issue (my site isn't a ecommerce site) and I followed the steps to set up a goal. My Goal ID and Set are both 1. Can someone please help me?

It looks like we are not able to do this for customers at this time. I am very sorry for the inconvenience! Your account will still work and you will receive clicks, but the connection with BoostSuite and Google Analytics won't provide the same info as you normally would get. Unfortunately, you will still get the email asking you to connect, but you can just ignore that.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
