Auto-track affiliate cookies to optin page

6 replies
What I'm trying to do is have:

Lander w/ optin -> optin -> sales follow up series of emails -> purchase -> affiliate credited for sale due to them sending traffic to lander w/optin

I'm new to getting this working, and it is possible I have been looking in the wrong places, but what are my options?


Thanks in advance.

James

    are you trying to get this programmed yourself, have someone else program, or just looking for an already packaged solution?

    James, here's how I would plan this out on the technical side...

    Affiliate referrals to the landing page would store the affiliate ID in the databse along side the name and email collected from the opti-in form. So that new subscriber is forever bound to the affiliate.

    All links in the outgoing emails would include the affiliate id, so all clicks can be tracked back to the affiliate when the sale is made.

    That way, no referrals will get lost along the way (which could happen if you're relying on just cookies)

    As for implementation...

    Whatever mailing software you're using hopefully has the option for custom fields so you can store the affiliate id. Then you should be able to craft your links like domain.com/{%%AFFILIATE%%}/offer-page

    A little bit of code on the sales page will turn those back into values for you to pass through your order forms.
