Is there any way to get email tracking analytics without a website?
Having a website is crucial for email marketing and tracking. Using a redirect script on your own website allows you to brand your tracking links with your own domain. When you use tracking links from your own domain instead of a generic domain, you eliminate the risk of your email being flagged as spam.
Often times, generic domains are blocked because of spam activity of one sender and other users who are using tracking links from the same generic domain suffer as well because their deliverability is affected by the blocking issue.
By using branded tracking links, you are the only person who is responsible for your reputation and deliverability. Your reputation and deliverability do not depend on other users.
And branded tracking links are more user-friendly for the recipients than tracking links from an unknown generic domain.
To start with a website, you can register a domain with GoDaddy. Also, get a hosting plan (Linux hosting) with GoDaddy. The cheapest economy plan will be sufficient.
When you get the domain and hosting plan, upload the redirect script to your site and then use the script URL in the email analytics campaigns.
