6. Using ‘Top Referral Link’
The ‘Top Referral Link’ feature will show you which page or link performed best in the recent times. This means that you can use your Affiliate link simultaneously at many pages and places while knowing at the end of the month which specific page, blog or email performed best.
7. Using ‘Channel Feature’
‘Channel Feature’ is used for two main purposes. First purpose is to customize your Affiliate link structure with a code and use each unique link to drive traffic from different sources.
It works something like the ‘Top Referral link’ feature. Second purpose is to monitor traffic from dedicated landing pages (Available to only selected Affiliates).
How to Setup the Channel Feature:
Here’s how you can change the structure of your Affiliate Link through Channel Feature. Follow these steps:
1. First, go to ‘Add Channels’ in Promotion Tab, present on your left, and Click ‘+Add Channel’
2. You will see a new row has appeared, click on ‘Channel Name’ and type your desired name after clicking on the channel name. For example: ‘VPNDiscount’.
3. Now click on ‘Code1’ and Type 3 to 4 simple characters as a code without spaces. Let’s suppose our code for this channel is ‘disc’.
4. After inputting the Channel Name and Code, click ‘Save modified rows’. This is mandatory, otherwise the entered information will be lost.
5. After saving this new channel, last thing you have to do is to customize your Affiliate link.
Our links should be as follows:
Standard Affiliate Link
Customized Affiliate Link with Channel (After creating the channel)
As you can notice, “&chan=disc” has been added to the standard Affiliate link and that’s how the tracking will be done in your Affiliate Panel for all various links. You can create and use as many channels & customized links as you like.
After creating the channels, you will be able to monitor traffic and conversions from each of these links in ‘Commissions’ & ‘Channel stats report’ tabs under the ‘Reports’ tab.
Thus, this is how you can benefit from the Affiliate Panel and some extended features. We hope that this 'how to use PureVPN affiliate Panel Guide' helps you in the best manner possible.
