HOW TO SPLIT TEST WITH REDTRACK

Split testing is basically testing two or more variations of elements in your campaign so that you can tell which element is making you money or which one is burning your money.

In order to know which elements are working out for your campaign, you need test and track them to see their actual performance.

You should then make optimizations to your campaign based on statistical data that’s provided by your tracker. And that’s the only way you can turn a campaign with negative ROI into a campaign with a positive ROI.

In this guide, I’m going to show you how to split test your landing pages and offers with RedTrack. So, make sure you follow along!

HOW TO SPLIT TEST LANDING PAGES

  1. To split test your landing pages, click on Campaign -> Then Click on the Campaign Name

2. Under the campaign settings, go to the section of Streams

3. Then click on “+Lander” to add the landing pages you are running for that specific campaign in the stream. You can add as many landing pages as you wish to test.

4. If want to upload another landing page, Click on “New Lander”, set up the landing page, save it and then add it to the stream.

5. Once you have added all the landing pages you want to split test, set up the weight at which traffic is to be distributed to each of the landing pages.

I recommend balancing the weight equally so that you can get much more significant data.

6. Save and Close.

You can now send traffic and track the performance of each Landing page.

HOW TO SPLIT TEST OFFERS

The procedure of split testing offers in RedTrack is much more similar to that of split testing the landing pages.

  1. First, you have to set up your campaign.
  2. To split test your offers, Click on Campaign -> Click on the Campaign name.
  3. Under the campaign settings, go to the section of
  4. Click on “+Offer” and select the offer you want to add to the stream. You can add as many offers as you’d wish to test in your campaign.
  5. If you are adding an offer that wasn’t set, click on “New Offer”, set up the offer, save it and add it to the stream.

6. Set up the weight, save and close.

You can now go on with sending traffic in order to track and know which offer converts better and optimize accordingly.

HOW TO SPLIT TEST STREAMS (LANDING PAGE AND OFFER COMBINATIONS)

  1. To split test streams, Click on Campaign -> Select the campaign you are working on.
  2. Under the settings of the campaign, go to the section of Streams.
  3. Set up the first Stream (STREAM #1) by adding your first landing page and offer combination.

4. Click on the add button at the bottom of the stream section to add the second stream.

5. Set up the second stream (STREAM #2) by adding your second landing page and offer combination.

6. Save and Close.

You can follow the same process to add more streams for deeper testing.

Once you are done, run traffic to test and see which landing page and offer combination performs better then optimize accordingly.

HOW TO BLOCK BOT TRAFFIC WITH REDTRACK

Almost every affiliate has somehow experienced a moment when their ads are getting so many rapid clicks and yet few offer conversions.

This situation happens most to those running ads on display and pop traffic.

Even how much you test different variations in your campaign’s funnel, you won’t realize any form of profit and often the conclusion is, “This offer doesn’t convert.”

Before you conclude that!!!

Always check your tracking report and do some deep analysis of your traffic’s IP addresses. It will come to your notice that most of the clicks that are not converting originate from similar IP addresses.

Once you notice that, just know that your traffic source is sending you bot traffic. This is one of the shady tactics which traffic sources do in order to get more of your money from you by creating bots to click your ads and therefore, you will be paying for a lot of clicks that won’t even convert.

There are a couple of solutions on how to handle this issue but RedTrack has come up with a superb way to totally block that kind of shady traffic.

To block bot traffic with RedTrack, you need to integrate your RedTrack account with a tool called FraudScoreFraudScore is a traffic analysis tool that tracks all kinds of fraudulent traffic within your funnel.  And it’s with this integration of RedTrack and FraudScore that will enable you to deal away with bot traffic and help you maximize your campaign ROI.

This integration only works for users on the Starter plan and above.

>>> GET YOUR REDTRACK ACCOUNT NOW <<<

Follow the steps below to learn how to set this up;

  1. Open a FraudScore

2. Once you access your account, go to API -> Conversion API.

3. Copy your API key from FraudScore

Then open your RedTrack account

4. Go to Profile -> Integrations Tab

5. Paste your FraudScore API key and save.

6. Click on Traffic source in RedTrack.

7. Open up the settings of traffic sources that you already set up.

8. At the bottom of the page, activate FraudScore Integration.

9.  Save.

That’s all with the setup!

With this integration, now you are able to deal away with any kind of bot traffic and that will save a lot of your ad spend.

HOW TO SET UP YOUR CUSTOM DOMAINS IN REDTRACK

In this guide, I’m going to show you how to set up your custom domains within RedTrack. RedTrack gives you its default tracking domain to utilize but for some few reasons, you may need to use your own custom domain for tracking.

The number one reason for using a custom domain is that it allows you to have much more security for example if your traffic source bans the default tracking domain for any sort of reason, you can get over that issue by simply using a custom domain.


>>> REGISTER HERE<<<

Another issue could be with spy tools. Using a custom domain highly reduces the chances of your campaigns appearing in spy tools unlike when you use the default tracking domain offered by your tracker.

In case you want to use your own custom tracking domain instead of the default domain provided by RedTrack, follow this guide and learn how you can set it up in RedTrack;

  1. Buy your new domain from Namecheap.com

Let’s assume your new domain is; trackingurl.fun

  1. Login into your Namecheap account
  2. On the dashboard, Click Domains list

4. The lookup for the domain and click on Manage -> Advanced DNS

Then click on add new record and set this way;

TYPE – CNAME Record

HOST – track

VALUE – rdtrck2.com

TTL – 60 minutes

Your custom domain will now appear like; http://track.trackingurl.fun

5. Then save.

Once you are done with that, return to RedTrack to complete the setup.

6.In RedTrack, Click on Domains ->New


>>> GET YOUR REDTRACK ACCOUNT NOW! <<<

7. Fill in your domain name and your custom domain URL.

8. Leave the Root domain URL blank

9. Then click save.

If your custom domain is an HTTPS, you need to activate HTTPS, upload your SSL certificate and the certificate key.

Consult the support team for more assistance on this.

Once you are done, you will notice that your campaign URL has changed. Instead of having the default RedTrack tracking domain, it will now be having your own domain.

Copy the new campaign URL and use it in your traffic source as the campaign URL (Click URL).

For those who are new to tracking, check out their video tutorials to learn more on the platform and its functionality.

To get your campaign set up and activated, first of all, you need to set up your Traffic Sources, Affiliate Networks, Landing Pages, and Offers.

This guide will help you go through that entire process quickly. Make sure you follow each step as written in the guide.



>>> GET REDTRACKER NOW!<<<

SETTING UP YOUR TRAFFIC SOURCE

The traffic source is basically the network/ site where you run your ads in order to get traffic to visit your landing page and offer.

It may be Google Adwords, Facebook, Bing, Exoclick, TrafficForce, RevContent, PopAds, just to mention, they are so many out there.

RedTrack comes with a couple of traffic sources that are pre-set within their system. This will simplify the integration process if your traffic source is listed among the pre-set traffic sources.

If your traffic source is not on the pre-set list, you can still add it.

Follow the steps below to quickly set up your traffic source.

  1. First, make sure to check if the target Traffic Source is already available in RedTrack. Click Traffic Sources ->New ->Search for your traffic source.

2.  Once you are able to find it on the list, click on “Add” button and all the available information and tracking tokens will be filled in automatically. All you need to do is input your personal data for some parts.

3. If the traffic source you are using isn’t available on the list, that means that it wasn’t pre-set within RedTrack, you can add it manually by clicking on “Create Custom“. After that, place the details and tracking tokens of that exact traffic source.

Follow the steps below to add it manually.

  • Use the “Create Custom” button:
  • Fill in the necessary fields:
  • Traffic source name
  • S2S Postback URL – The S2SPostback URL can be obtained from your Traffic Source. It should contain valid click Id tokens supported by the traffic source. Use this if you need to send conversions data back to your traffic source.
  • Click Id token {click_id} -Use this token to track each click on your ads.

Note: Tokens/ Macros are the custom variables/ parameters which you are to track. They include; Geos, campaign id, device types, carrier names, and so many more variables of your traffic that you need to track.

You can find them on your specific traffic source or search for them on TrackingTokens

  • The rest of the information is optional but if you need to track additional data which your traffic source supports, you can fill in the tokens below:

· Imp Ref ID and Impression Cost ID–  for tracking impressions.

· Click Ref and Click Cost ID– if you want to get the click cost for CPC campaign automatically from the traffic source.

· Other tokens (subIDs) – if you want to track much more variables of your traffic. Find these from your Traffic Source or on go to trackingtokens.com -> Search for your traffic source -> Then you will find the tokens.

Contact your account manager/ support team of your traffic source to get a deeper understanding of their tokens and their functions.

4. Enable Parallel tracking if you are running your ads on Google Adwords. This doesn’t apply to other traffic sources.

5.  Activate FraudScore Integration in order to detect fraudulent activity within your campaigns. This will enable you to block bot traffic and save you over 30% of your ad budget.

To activate this, you must have an account on FraudScore which you will then have to integrate with RedTrack. (I will show you later in this guide how it’s done)

6. Save the changes once you are done

That’s all with setting up your traffic source, let’s now set up our affiliate network.



>>> SIGN UP REDTRACK ACCOUNT NOW<<<

SETTING UP YOUR AFFILIATE NETWORK

The second important step is to set up the affiliate network that you work with. RedTrack comes with a list of pre-set Affiliate Networks as well.

Follow the steps below to set up your affiliate network.

  1. First, check if your network is available on the list. Go to Networks -> New -> Search for your network:

2. Once you are able to find it on the list, click on “Add” button and all the available information will be filled in automatically so you need to fill it in.

Note: In case you are using a custom domain, the postback URL template must be changed according to your domain. ”rdtrck2.com should be changed to your domain.”

Make sure you copy and paste your Conversion postback URL back to your affiliate network.

You should also fill in your offer URL with a Click Id token at the end of your offer URL (Read the next part to learn how to add your click id to the end of your offer link.)

If the Affiliate Network you are working with isn’t available on the list, that means that it wasn’t pre-set within RedTrack, you can add it manually by clicking on “Create Custom“. Then fill in the information of that exact affiliate network:

Follow the steps below to add your affiliate  network manually;

  • Use the “Create Custom” button:
  • Fill in the necessary fields:
  • Affiliate network name and URL;
  • Postback URL template – You will need to replace corresponding fields with the tokens from your affiliate network (these tokens can be found in the postback settings or you can ask your Affiliate Manager for help).

RedTrack default postback URL template asks for click id and sum tokens.

The sum token is a dynamic payout token. Not all affiliate networks provide the sum token.

How to set up your Postback URL:

Get your click id and sum tokens from your affiliate network. (The sum token is optional. If your affiliate network doesn’t provide the sum token, you can simply remove it from the default postback URL)

Follow the sample image below on how to set up your postback URL;

Let’s assume the click id from your affiliate network is {EXTERNAL_ID} and your sum is {MONEY}

The default postback URL template from RedTrack is; http://rdtrck2.com/postback?clickid={replace_me}&sum={replace_or_remove}

What you have to do here is to replace the {replace_me} field with {EXTERNAL_ID} and the {replace_or_remove} field with {MONEY}.

Here is your final postback URL;

http://rdtrck2.com/postback?clickid={{EXTERNAL_ID}}&sum={{MONEY}}

Do not leave any spaces between the characters in the link

Then copy and paste your conversion final postback URL to your affiliate network as a global postback, or on individual offer postback if you plan to use different tokens for different offers.

If you don’t insert your postback URL to your affiliate network, then RedTrack won’t be able to track your conversions.

  • Fill in your offer URL from your affiliate network. Make sure you add a {clickid}token to the end of the link.

How to add a click Id token:

Let’s say this is your offer URL; https://www.mb102.com/lnk.asp?o=12908&c=918273&a=299149&l=13399

And this is your affiliate network token/ subID for click id; s2

What you have to do is to add; &s2={clickid} to the end of your offer URL.

This is how your offer link should appear:
https://www.mb102.com/lnk.asp?o=12908&c=918273&a=299149&l=13399&s2={clickid}

3. Other optional settings:

  • Event tracking– This will track and show you the events recorded by the tracker, enable it if needed.
  • Duplicate Postback Mode– This enables you to choose what action will be taken upon receiving conversions created by the same clickID through the postback URL.

I highly suggest for you to choose “Create new conversion”, this mode will record each data from the postback URL as a new separate conversion.

  • Whitelisted IPs– You can set this up if you wish to record conversions from a particular IP address only. Conversions from other IP addresses won’t be recorded.

Postback subIDs – Most of the Networks do not support any additional subIDs so check it with your Affiliate Manager to see if your affiliate network supports them.

4. Save the changes

Now you are all set with the Affiliate Network, let’s go on and set up the offer.



>>> REGISTER YOUR REDTRACK ACCOUNT NOW<<<

SETTING UP YOUR OFFER

Once you are done setting up your Traffic source and Affiliate network, now it’s time to set up the offer that you are running. Go to your affiliate network and grab your offer link and then follow the instructions below to set up that offer in RedTrack.

  1. After you have obtained the offer from your Affiliate Network, add it to RedTrack by clicking on:
    Offers ->New

2. Fill in the fields:

  • Offer Name– Fill in the name of the offer.
  • Affiliate Network– Choose the affiliate network from the drop-down list You must have added your affiliate network first for it to appear in that drop-down list i.e. you must have completed the steps above on setting up your network.
  • Payout– Fill in your offer payout.
  • Unique visits– This feature determines how many times the same Offer will be displayed to the same user/ visitor. Set it up according to your wish.
  • Conversion Cap– Set this up only if your offer has a conversion cap. Turn on the alert to be notified by e-mail when the cap is reached.

Note: A conversion cap is the maximum number of conversions accepted by a specific offer. Not all offers have this, so check with your affiliate network or contact your affiliate manager for more details.

  • Offer URL– Add your Offer URL from the affiliate network. Make sure you have modified the offer URL by adding {clickid} token to the end of  If you didn’t, please go through the previous topic and see how to add a click id token at the end of your offer URL.

3. Fill in the country in which you are running your offer

4. You can add custom tags to your offer but this is optional. If you are to add the custom tags, make sure you separate them with commas.

5. Save the changes.

And That’s all with the setting up the offer.


SETTING UP YOUR LANDING PAGES

If your campaign is using a landing page, follow these steps to set up your landing page within the tracker.

  1. Go to Landings ->New

2. Fill in the Landing Page’s name and its link.

3.  Add tracking tokens at the end of the landing page link to track different variables of the traffic that visits your landing page.

Here’s the list of available tokens

ClickID = {clickid}
Campaign = {campaignid}
Source = {sourceid}
Cost = {cost}
OS = {os}
Browser = {browser}
Device = {brand}
Country = {country}
City = {city}
ISP = {isp}
LPKey = {lpkey}
Sub1 = {sub1}
Sub2 = {sub2}
Sub3 = {sub3}
Sub4 = {sub4}
Sub5 = {sub5}
Sub6 = {sub6}
Sub7 = {sub7}
Sub8 = {sub8}
Sub9 = {sub9}
Sub10 = {sub10}
RefID = {ref_id}
ImpID = {imp_id}
OfferPayout = {offer_payout}

How to add tracking tokens to your landing page link.

To add the tokens, simply add token_parameter={token} for the first token then add&token_parameter={token} for the rest of the tokens.

Let’s assume we are adding the device and browser tokens to a link. The link will appear like;

www.healthproductreview.com/rdtk/lp1/.html?device={device}&browser={browser}

4. To track your landing page’sviews and clicks, you need to add a tracking script to your landing page’s code;

<scripttype=”text/javascript”src=”//your_RedTrack_dedicated_domain/track.js”></script>

Make sure you add it within the header section of your landing page code. Replace the part written as“your_RedTrack_dedicated_domain” with your RedTrack link.

http://rdtrck2.com/click or http://your_domain.com/click if you are using custom tracking domain

LP Code example:

5. If you are using a Landing page that contains links to Multiple Offers (each with separate buttons), keep in mind that you need to correspondingly add a different LP click tracking URLs for each offer.

Use this link template if you promoting multiple offers on the same landing page. Please make sure that the number of offers in Campaign Stream is equal to the number of Multi-offer click URLs in the Landing page.

Offer Link Template:
http://your_tracking_domain.com/click/1

6. Add the Track direct traffic script to your landing page in order to track visitors who come directly to your landing page without accessing it through your campaign URL.

Copy and paste it into the header section of your landing page’s code.

7. RedTrack also provides a landing page protection code that prevents direct access to your landing pages. It also reduces the chances of your pages appearing on spy tools.

You can copy and paste it into the header section of your landing page code.

To be able to use that code, your landing page must be having a .php extension.

8. Save the changes.

That’s all with setting up your landing page. In case of any complication, always contact the support team. And if you need assistance with the technical part that’s related to coding, you can outsource the work on www.bannerslanders.com

Now that you are done setting up your landing page, you can go on with setting up the campaign.

SETTING UP YOUR CAMPAIGN

After setting up the traffic source, affiliate network, offer and landing page, you can now finally set up your campaign.

Follow the steps below;

  1. Click Campaigns -> New

Then fill in the details;

  • Campaign name
  • The Traffic Source associated with this campaign
  • SelectDomain – http://rdtrck2.com/ is used as a default domain. If you are using a custom domain please change it to your custom domain.
  • Choose the redirect method: My suggestion here is that you choose “HTTP 302 Redirect”. Here, your traffic/ visitors will be sent directly to the offer you’re promoting. Your data gets passed as a referrer.
  • Protocol– Leave the protocol as HTTPS unless you have SSL certificate applied in RedTrack for your custom domain. In case you have that,  then you will need to change the protocol to HTTPS.
  • Campaign cost and value – Here you need to specify your campaign cost model, either CPC, CPA, CPM or RevShare. Then fill in the value;
  • Postbacks – In the postbacks section, click Add and the field will be filled automatically with your Traffic Source settings. Make sure {ref_id} token is present in your Postback link.

2. Define the Streams for your Campaign.

  • Select an Offer(s)
  • Select a Landing page(s) (if you are using one).
  • Set the Weight to 100% if you are running a single offer. Also, do the same if you are running a single landing page. If you are running more than one landing page or offer, make sure you distribute the weight evenly in order to carry out proper split tests.
  • Apply Filters if necessary. Before applying Filters for your Campaign, you need to create them at Tools -> Filter presets
  • If you want to add more streams to the campaign so that you can perform split tests, click Add   (Read the guide on how to do split tests.)

3. Save the Campaign.

After clicking save, your campaign URL will be available for you. Copy and paste it into your Traffic Source. Now you’ll be ready to launch your campaign.


LAUNCHING YOUR CAMPAIGN

Now that you have your campaign tracking URL, all you have to do is paste it to your traffic source and activate your campaign.

Before you activate the campaign, make sure that you double check your links and see if the tracker has recorded and displayed the few clicks you’ve made while testing your links.

Once you realize the tracker has recorded the right data, then you can go ahead and launch your campaign.

A Guide to the #1 Tracking Software You Should Use In 2019. (RedTrack)

Recently, I have been receiving a lot of messages and emails from affiliates complaining and asking me;

‘What tracking platform should I use?…’

‘Am new to affiliate marketing, advise me on which tracker to use…’

‘But voluum costs have gone up wildly, what can I do?…’

‘I am sick and tired of my self-hosted tracker, it keeps going down…what do you recommend?’

and so many more issues regarding tracking.

I recently found out a great new solution for all those issues raised, which is RedTrack.io and I shared it with you in a previous post on my blog, you can read it here.

At the end of that post, I promised to upload a free, no BS guide to using this advanced tracker that you should get familiar with before 2019. And finally, after the wait, the guide is here.

Now, before I get into this…

Here’s the fact, there are a lot of new trackers coming out on the marketplace these days, literally it’s like every month there’s a new tracker. But what I want to do for you in this guide is to break down what I believe is the best tracker for you to use for your campaigns at the moment (all factors considered) and I will go much deeper to basically explain step by step, the entire process of launching your first successful campaign on this tracking software even though you are totally a newbie, and hopefully this will help you see much more profits in your online business.

Get ready to take some notes! 🙂

Introduction to RedTrack

RedTrack is the most sophisticated and yet most affordable tracking solution available on the market out there at the moment and as you might have guessed right, it is a cloud-hosted tracking software. So there are no issues of you being worried of the servers crashing and getting into so much more pain caused by self-hosted trackers (I will get deeper into this later on in this guide).

What is a Tracker and what is tracking?

A tracker is basically a software that allows you to see the performance of your marketing campaigns and analyze various metrics of your campaign. It’s by these metrics that you are going to be able to identify the elements of your campaign that are making you money or burning your money, and then you can make further optimizations to your campaign and focus on the elements that are making you money.

These elements might be the ads, banners, goes, device types, IP addresses, mobile carriers, landing pages and so many more.

Literally tracking is a deep analysis of the performance of your campaign and getting to know each aspect of it, in terms of data. Once you have the data of your campaign, It’s with that data that you can use to spot and differentiate winning elements of your campaign from the losing ones, then make adjustments by totally excluding the losing elements and dealing with only and only the winning elements and guess what’s next, Profits babyyyy!!!

And that’s why I always say tracking is fundamental to the success of any paid advertising campaign. Every successful affiliate understands and 100% recommends it and it’s basically the difference between a successful affiliate and struggling newbie who’s trying to jump into the affiliate marketing business.

It stresses me out whenever I see those so-called YouTube gurus selling affiliate marketing courses online that don’t even teach a single thing about tracking.

Tip: Once you notice that, don’t waste your money buying that course because that person is also just a rookie trying to survive by selling courses online and doesn’t really know the game of affiliate marketing.

Trackers on the Market

As I said, there are a lot of trackers on the market, there are CPV labs, Voluum, Thrive, ImobiTrax, AdsBridge and so many more. And I want you to understand this, they all pretty much do the exact same thing. The only difference between one tracker and another tracker is not the metrics, it’s the simply the interface, advanced features, and pricing. What I want to let you know is that there are people making over 6 figures on each of those trackers. It’s not that am despising any of them, okay.

It’s not about the tracker you use but it’s all about how you use it and that’s what makes the difference.

But again most of those good and popular ones are old and outdated; And as you understand, affiliate marketing keeps on evolving and you always have to evolve too by keeping up with the latest technology or else you’ll get kicked out of your own game.

Another issue is that the few good ones that are still surviving are getting super expensive and this is not favorable at all, especially for newbies.

Self-hosted Trackers Vs Hosted Trackers

There are a couple of considerations you must put in your mind before picking a tracker but the main thing is to choose if you want to host the tracker yourself or if you want the tracker hosted for you.

The difference is that if you have a tracker like Thrive, FunnelFlux, CpvLabs or ImobiTrax, these are self-hosted trackers and they require you to be able to have hosting for yourself, so that means you are going to be responsible for your hosting bills and you’re going to be responsible in case anything crashes. All that is on you! 🙁

With Hosted trackers, the tracking software company hosts the tracker for you, which means that they pay for the hosting and all you need to do is to plug and play with them by simply connecting your links to your landing pages then start running your campaigns. Some good examples are RedTrack, Voluum, and AdsBridge.

These hosted trackers are obviously going to be a little more expensive because they have to deal with your server infrastructure, and they save you from a lot of work especially dealing with your hosting set up, bills. and having specific tracking domains for your own tracker which makes long scary links. Another issue with self-hosted trackers is that your landing pages may load up slowly if you buy traffic from countries whose location is far away from your actual servers’ location.

For example, if your server is located in the United States and you are running a campaign with traffic from Australia, then the speed of loading up your landing pages is going to be way too slow for the users in Australia and you can tell this by using a tool like Pingdom. The only way to avoid that is by hosting your tracker on a CDN server which again is far more expensive.

So, that should simply tell you that using a Hosted tracker will save you lots of money and time.

It’s a no-brainer!

RedTrack Vs AdsBridge and Voluum

So when it comes to Hosted Trackers, the main Hosted trackers on the marketplace are RedTrack, Voluum, and AdsBridge. And I repeat this, they all show the exact same metrics, the main differences are the interfaces, prices and advanced tools available within the specific trackers.

And that’s where RedTrack beats its competitors by far.

Actually, I personally think there’s no contest there because RedTrack is way advanced with better tech and bearing the fact that RedTrack offers 50,000 trackable events for a full month for free, their customer service is next level and it still offers many features like Custom Domains, Cloaking, Bot blacklisting, very fast redirects  and so much more.

Let’s focus on the price difference between RedTrack and its competitors.

As you can definitely see, RedTrack is definitely beating its competition when it comes to prices per events recorded. It’s paid plans start from $29 which is favorable for all affiliates especially those on a low budget. Even though you are already a big baller in the industry, wouldn’t you like to save that cash and rather put into your ad spend where the actual profits are made?

It also offers 50,000 trackable events per month free plan. That alone is enough to enable new users to test and utilize the platform risk-free and once you are contented with their services, you can immediately upgrade to a paid plan with better utilities. Each paid plan has a two week trial period.

Features of RedTrack.io

Here are the other main features whereby RedTrack beats its competition by far and makes it the best tracking software on the market.

Why you should switch to RedTrack

There are many benefits of RedTrack compared to other trackers (even the one you may be using at the moment) as I have already mentioned, but the biggest of all is that RedTrack is extra efficient yet so affordable.
It’s so simple to use in a way that offers a user-friendly interface, with no complex design and buttons. Even beginners can quickly adapt to the platform within the first 36 hours. Usually, they add new features to the platform but the interface remains simple. So if you are new to tracking and analytics, RedTrack won’t be a stress for you to understand and utilize.
As we all understand now, RedTrack is a Hosted tracker, so you won’t need to hassle with servers, their rising costs and the issues of servers crashing won’t happen to you in any way. RedTrack is scalable and does very fast click processing. Self-hosted solutions ain’t even close with them when it comes to speed!
RedTrack consistently advances its tech and resources, they have a highly innovative team that regularly comes out with new updates to keep the platform on trend.
RedTrack has what I think the best customer support out there, they offer a timely response, free one-on-one video calls to assist their customers in cases of setting up postback URLs and other technical stuff. These guys are so cool in such a way that they have created their own Telegram Community with users whereby users can share their needs and suggestions directly with the developers and staff. I haven’t seen such an excellent support team in other trackers.
The platform is already integrated with more than 20 top affiliate networks and over 20 top traffic sources which really simplifies the process of setting up source IDs and postbacks. They also have easy guides showing you how to connect to all those affiliate networks and traffic sources. Alternatively, their support team can immediately take you through the process even if your specific network or traffic source isn’t initially integrated with their platform.

As you have seen, almost 99% of the top affiliate networks and traffic sources have been already set up within the tracker. I guess the ones you are using have been integrated too, so you can simply go on to plug and play. All you have to do is to connect your links and start tracking your campaigns immediately (I’m going to fully guide you through on how to do it later on in this guide) and the entire process takes just a few minutes.

Do not worry if your affiliate network or traffic source hasn’t been listed, the process is the same, just keep on reading 🙂

Switching to RedTrack 

I understand switching to a new tracker is a little bit of an uncomfortable process but let’s take this as upgrading. Everybody likes upgrading in all aspects of life from the cars we drive, the home we live in, the neighborhood, generally, we are made to be lovers of “upgrading” and it’s more of natural.

Why not upgrade our business tools which actually make us have a stronger business that caters for our general lifestyle. And always remember in affiliate marketing, if you don’t catch up with trends, then you are on your way to extinction in the industry.
