Campaign tracking on on Outbound Links

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Basically I have structured my outbound link tracking like so:

 

Category: Outbound Affiliate Link

Action: Amazon [Brand Name clicked on]

Label: Sidebar Widget [Placement]

 

Now I'm in a conundrum, where I also want to track how well an internal campaign is doing, to promote a specific brand...and not too sure where it would fit in the outbound affiliate tracking I have in place ... any ideas? Maybe I create a new event category "Internal Campaign? but should I keep the event action and label the same? OR should I just add a custom dimension "Internal Campaign"...

 

Any thoughts? I know it's how we choose to structure event goas etc BUT checking in to see how you are all doing this?

There's a good strategy here that I've used before.
