Rent Out Your Car Parking Space

Depending on where you live, renting out your car parking space is one of the most effective ways to earn extra cash. There are plenty of people who may work in the city centre, and are simply fed up of paying costly fees to park.

The Hidden Mystery behind Affiliate Tracking [Infographic]

One of the best things about affiliate marketing, and digital marketing at large, is the possibility to measure your efforts.

You can literally track anything online — where the visitors came from, what they clicked on, what device they used, what internet connection served them, what banner or landing page performed best and many more.

Nevertheless, being new to affiliate marketing usually brings a lot of “how-to” questions to the table. How to properly set up tracking in order to get all this information? How to use a tracker? How to launch a 1st campaign in the tracker and optimize it from now forth? The answers are right in front of you, just keep reading this article.

First thing first, let’s determine what exactly a tracking solution is. And how it actually works.

The concept is always best illustrated through an example.

Let’s imagine the simplest possible case. You go to offervault.com, choose the offer you want to promote, for example, iPhone X Sweepstakes for Latam GEO. Then you create several pre- landers or some super appealing banners, and start running mobile traffic to the offer.

Your iPhone X Sweepstakes campaign is running, and you discover that the best results (read, highest ROI) you have with:

  • the visitors who are using Android devices;
  • Samsung smartphones, in particular;
  • they are primarily from Argentina and Brazil;
  • they are using 3G internet connection;
  • Cotelcam and Telecom carriers;
  • and the most conversions happen between 7 pm and 11 pm.

This is all data that a tracking software will collect for you!

How does it actually work?

Every tracker generates the so-called ‘tracking link’. This link is used by an affiliate to send all the traffic through it. In a pic it could be visualized in the following way:

How does the tracker know which click has converted into a sale?

This process can be put in simple steps:

  1. Once a visitor clicks on your banner/ landing (whatever you use in your advertising), he is assigned with a unique ID, which is stored on his browser. This ID follows him all the way to the product purchase or any other action you set (e.g. filling sign-up form, app installation, etc.)
  2. Thanks to the assigned ID, a Network knows that this particular visitor has done the desired action that caused a conversion.
  3. Then, the Network send this ID to the tracker, “telling” that this visitor converted.
  4. The tracker, on its side, pulls out all the information about this ID and conversion, i.e. ROI, cost, CR, as well as the country where this conversion has come from, what time of day, from which OS and many more.

Thus, we can enclose that a tracking software (or tracker) collects all kind of information about the visitors that, in turn, allows you to find your profitable traffic segments and the non-profitable ones. This, in turn, opens a whole new world of opportunities for your marketing campaign optimization and profit increase.

Once we answered the questions “What is tracking software?” and “How does a tracker work?”, we can proceed with the most interesting one –

How to use a tracker and launch your first campaign with it?

First to mention, that there are several well-known and highly performing tracking solutions on the market. Despite some differences in paid subscription plans and some exclusive features, each of them is optimized for paid traffic management and performance increase. No matter which one you choose, the process of setting a campaign is pretty similar for each of them.

Let’s first determine which steps you should go through while creating your first campaign in the tracker of choice:

  1. Add Affiliate Network
  2. Assign the desired Offer with this Affiliate Network
  3. Add Traffic Source
  4. Add Landing Page (this step is optional, as you might run traffic directly to the Offer)
  5. Create your Custom domain (optional too)
  6. Set-up a Campaign (with the Offer and Traffic Source of choice)

Since an image is worth a long wordy description sometimes, RedTrack.io team made a simple infographic for you. It shows you the sequence of all the steps you should go through while creating your first campaign in the tracker. Again, all these steps are relevant for any tracker.

 

Those who just start tracking the performance of their marketing campaigns might sometimes feel overwhelmed with the range of new optimization possibilities it offers.

Here and now, the key thing you should understand is that a tracker is not about tracking the number of visits and clicks. At least, not only. It goes way deeper than that: track conversions and impressions, cost of a click for each of your traffic sources, the performance of numerous variables (geo, device type, time, etc.), publisher’s data (ad location, landing page effectiveness, referral links) and many more.

Down the line, the more experienced you become with performance marketing, the simpler it becomes to track and optimize your efforts. As you gain more, you learn new tactics and approaches for maximizing ROI.

Managing advertising campaigns isn’t easy, but tracking them should be!

Don’t know which tracker to choose or miss some features with your current tracking solution of choice? Then, you might want to check out RedTrack.io –  advanced tracking & analytics platform. Only for Offervault Scoop readers, they give away a special promo-code – OFFER-SCOOP. Use it while sign up and get 25% discount within your 3 first months of RedTrack subscription.

Rewind through a year of performance at BitterStrawberry

Now that we started the new year, we began to think about what 2017 actually meant to us, BitterStrawberry. The season of performance reviews began and it’s time to rewind through the last year.

In 2017 we’ve been through lots of changes and improvements and we developed new AI tech tools that kept us at the top also in 2017. We even surprised ourselves when looking at just how much has happened in the last 12 months at BitterStrawberry.

It was an interesting and pivotal year and the short version of it is that we’ve increasingly focused on setting new standards and measurable results, inspired by technology.

The year began with the development of new revolutionary technology tools that will improve the whole domain of affiliate marketing, regardless if we are talking about publishers, advertisers or networks. In less than 12 months we launched:

  • A MarketPlace with over 14.000 original pre-tested, exclusive offers
  • A new revolutionary way of monetizing mobile traffic, The HybridLink
  • A unique fully-customizable solution, powered by Artificial Intelligence that will help you analyze your media buying data and target your most profitable users with free in-depth tracking and stats: The Performance Tracker.

Unlike conventional affiliate trackers & performance marketing solutions, BitterStrawberry.com is designed to end repetitive tasks and illogical flows and instead focus on maximizing the affiliate marketer’s earnings from every click.

Beside these 3 products, we developed and lunched two new and improved apps for publishers, and advertisers that will keep them updated along the way, helping them check their campaigns easier than ever. We have few other projects brewing, some of which will DRASTICALLY increase the efficiency of ad purchasing for the publisher.

Also, this year we rebranded for the tech era, with a new voice, a sleek, modern logo and a zingy new site with a premium design. We didn’t change just the look, we changed the whole experience!

We attended over 23 conferences where we extended our network with affiliates, affiliate managers, advertisers and agencies. We discovered solution providers, plus dozens of educational sessions covering the latest trends and information from marketing experts.

We’ve been to Webmaster Access, held in Amsterdam, where we identified potential customers and we made some great friends that in the future could be very valuable to us. We attended the Dmexco Conference in Koln, the global meeting point for digital economy. We took the game to the next level and met some of the most famous names in marketing, at the Moscow Affiliate Conference. We experienced Marbella and made the most out of World Telemedia. We’ve been to the best technology conference in the world in Lisbon, we met the biggest international and Spanish brands, advertisers and publishers at Madrid Mobile Summit and we attended Affiliate World Asia and Affiliate World Berlin, where we brushed shoulders with the best and most insightful business founders.

As for our key performance indicators from our affiliate marketing efforts this year, here’s what one year looks at a Premium Mobile Performance Network in numbers:

 

– clicks 14.235.839.382

Managers always want more clicks from the affiliate channel. But the quality of clicks matters. Significant increases, especially if they are well-targeted like ours, could lead to big conversion rates. Decreases might mean a good affiliate has left the program. Top performers from our market of over 14000 direct offers are bringing in clicks by the millions. Affiliates can identify new and exclusive offers automatically, filtering by vertical, country, business model, conversion flows and more.

– sales 26,183.900

This is the net revenue generated by our affiliate channel after deducting affiliate commissions. Average order value can impact net sales if affiliates focus on low-priced goods. Major variations in monthly net sales should be investigated and noted.

– new publishers 5833 

Recruiting never ends for an affiliate program. Some affiliates retire or give up promotions. Others are purchased by competitors and the original account becomes dormant. Managers should always be reaching out to new affiliates with various promotion models. We send enough recruiting pitches and most of them have been approved.

– new advertisers 1486

Our managers dived into analytics and determined the number of new advertisers being driven by the affiliate channel. Tracking pixels for many networks can report new customers as well, if the merchant’s cart and backend support it. In 2018, our recruitment team will find more niche content affiliates with audiences who have not been exposed to our exclusive offers. Our new advertisers received targeted traffic due to our multi-layer targeting: Vertical, Geo, City/Zip code, device, browser, language, carrier, time of day and operating system.

– offers we made 79,304 and over 20 verticals promoted

Because we like to be everywhere, and we have thousands of traffic sources worldwide on our platform, our partners have access to the best affiliate marketing verticals which were proven to work. They also have access to over 79.000 offers. Our sales team ensures we provide the best non-re-brokered offers.

 

Overall, we made solid progress last year and we’re not going to stop here. We’re moving into the future and we want to show you the way!
