Wink 12 Tips to Find the Best Affiliate Tracking Program

When it comes to affiliate tracking programs, you have a lot of choices. Not all of them, however, are equally good. Some of them are very good, some of them are average, and some of them are below average. With this being the case, how do you choose the best tracking program for your business? Here?s how.

Look for an affiliate software program with advanced tracking facility. The program you choose should support standard cookie tracking, IP tracking, and flash cookie tracking so that you can track all sales easily. Such a program can help you track a sale even if the customer clicks on the affiliate link in one browser and places the order in another.

Look for a program that offers different types of payout options like pay-per-click (unique visitors), pay-per-sale (flat rate), pay-per-sale (percentage basis), and more. You should be able to change the payout level and the payout method any time you want.

Choose the best affiliate program with highly advanced security features to prevent click fraud, commission fraud, signup fraud, and other such types of frauds. The program should detect fraudulent transactions and allow you to decline commission for those transactions and suspend or terminate the account of those who involved in the same.

Go for a program that supports different types of affiliate links. You can analyze all types of affiliate links, pick a format that suits your needs best, and use it for your affiliate program.

Choose an affiliate software program that offers the most comprehensive reports that help you gauge the performance of your affiliate program. It should give you affiliate performance charts, traffic source charts, transaction trends report, and more.

Pick a program that allows you to set the minimum payout and change it any time you want. It should also be able to send mass payments to your affiliates as and when they reach the minimum payout. This is an important feature you should look for in an affiliate software program.

Select a program that has a user friendly interface. The instructions should be simple enough for you to understand even if you have little to no technical expertise. You should be able to move from one section of the admin panel to another easily, activate or deactivate any features instantly, and get any information you want with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Go for a program that works with different types of merchant accounts, shopping carts, membership management systems, and billing systems.

Choose the best affiliate tracking program that allows you to customize the email templates, color schemes, signup fields, language packs, and more. A program that allows you to customize the affiliate links to make them more search engine friendly can be particularly useful as it can improve your website?s search engine rankings.

Look for an affiliate software program that offers plugins to help you manage your affiliate program easily. Software manufacturers regularly release various plugins that increase the functionality of their software programs. You can usually download such plugins directly from the software manufacturer?s website for free.

Pick a program that supports a wide range of promotional material like image banners, flash banners, text link banners, HTML banners, hover banners, page peel banners, and more.

Last but not least, choose a program that offers round-the-clock technical support. Never settle for products with virtually no customer support just because they are priced low. If you have a query or if something goes wrong with the software, you may have to wait for days to get an answer from the other side. This is an important thing you need to keep in mind while choosing the best affiliate tracking software.

Hope that helps you achieve your goal of becoming the best affiliate you can be.
