Email Traffic is considered what exactly.

11 replies
When an affiliate campaign states it does not accept email traffic, this is referring to direct email traffic such as placing the affiliate link in the body of the email, right? I want to direct my email subscribers to my website, and then have them signup for an offer on my web page. I just want to make sure this doesn't qualify as email traffic. Appreciate your input, thanks.

    I believe you have things right. Email Traffic is traffic coming from a link in an email, and many vendors (including Amazon) do not allow it.

    The biggest concerns are spam, of course, and an inability to track a visitor back to the source of the click.Even if the email isn't technically spam, they can't verify compliance with TOS if they can't see the message that generated the click.

    Your plan to send people to a web page, and then direct them on to the offer page, should be fine. Note, I said "should." You can always double check with the vendor. If they respond affirmatively, save that communication.

    This should have been step one.

    Go to the source, not people who may or may not provide accurate information.

    Strongly advise you to not work with companies Which do not allow traffic coming from emails
    Why you need to work with companies which or later can block all your profits with this excuse

    In any case check and ask to the vendor

    If the affiliate campaign doesn't accept e-mail traffic then you can go for other sources of traffic like PPC e.g Bing ads, Facebook ads etc

    If the traffic comes from a link in an email message it would be considered email traffic.

    If you send them to a landing page and from it, they have to click a link to go to the offer landing page, then you should likely be fine.

    Just to be safe, I would use a redirect for your mail link to your landing page. If using a tracking service then set it to blank referrers.

    I suspect that most advertisers that don't want email traffic are afraid of potential complaints due to spamming. So if you're not generating complaints, you will likely not have any problems.

    Why do you choose to go with such a program, where there are other ones that allow email traffic?

    I think you're good, but you could contact the manager for your affiliate program to find out. They will give you a very clear yes or no.

    I can't imagine a merchant that wants you as an affiliate and does not want you to send emails to your list regarding the products. They're just talking about direct email traffic they can't track to verify compliance.
