It is important as an affiliate marketer to be able to collect as much data as possible from your traffic in order to optimize your affiliate marketing campaign. I recently discussed how to optimize your 7Search campaign. Most seasoned affiliate marketers will do this using a 3rd party tracking system. It’s not always required, but it’s usually a good idea.
For example, at PeerFly we provide you with quite a bit of information about your traffic on your PeerFly Reports page. You can see how many clicks you got (unique and total), how many conversions you got, your EPC, and your conversion rate. You can even break those statistics down by subid and have the option to export your click statistics into a CSV file. However, there would still be benefits to using a 3rd party tracking system. For example, with Prosper202 you can easily track your campaigns ROI (something I’ve always found useful). In order to do this you will need to be able to track your conversions on your 3rd party tracking software.
There are a few ways to track your conversions using PeerFly and a 3rd party tracking system, but the method that most people use and the one that seems to work best is by placing a tracking pixel on the offer on PeerFly. Luckily, PeerFly has made it very simple for you to do this!
Add your pixel to the advertiser’s conversion page
If you have picked out an offer you want to run and have your pixel ready to go simply go to the offer page on PeerFly. Once there, scroll down to the red Tools tab. Click that.
The Tools menu should be showing. Click the Place Tracking Pixel link.
Now, you should be at the page where you can actually place your tracking pixel. Simply copy and paste your pixel into the box. If you have more than once pixel you can use them both, simply put a space between each one.
Once you push submit your pixel will be automatically added to the offer page so whenever you get a conversion we will notify your 3rd party tracking software.
If you have any trouble placing your pixel or would like me to check to make sure it has been added properly just let me know. Also, if you’d like me to do a test lead to make sure everything is setup properly that is fine (do not do a test lead yourself). Let’s make some money!
