Double Your Revenue with Affise Upgraded Smartlinks
Earning more while putting in the same or even less effort may sound unrealistic, as one of those ads promising to make you rich overnight. But that’s another story. In this article we will prove that as an advertiser you can double your earnings with little or no effort on the example of our recently updated Smartlinks.
It’s been a while since we first launched Smartlinks. The capabilities of machine learning have greatly evolved since then. And today we’re proud to announce the biggest upgrade since the initial release of Affise Smartlinks.
Before we move further, let us briefly review what Smartlinks are and why they matter in affiliate marketing.
Smartlink is a URL link that contains multiple offers and serves to distribute traffic to the correct offer based on detailed targeting, such as traffic source, geo, browser, device, operating system, etc.
In other words, affiliates can send traffic to a single Tracking URL without choosing a specific offer. The Smartlink algorithm detects offers with the highest EPC potential among those that match the targeted audience. This distribution maximizes EPC and CR with the efficiency unachievable solely with human judgement.
In our side-by-side tests with a vast amount of real traffic, new Smartlinks’ logic showed an enormous improvement compared to the previous version: up to five times higher conversion rate and up to twice higher EPC. Further, in some tests EPC from Smartlinks turned out to be higher than traffic sent to offers manually chosen by affiliates.
All the mentioned above makes Smartlinks a perfect solution for using as a Trafficback. We strongly recommend using it as Global Trafficback adding all of your offers to a single Smartlink. This will allow you to earn from traffic that otherwise would be just wasted.
You also can set up your own Smartlinks based on Vertical or any other logic that you prefer. After you’re done, it will be visible to your Affiliates in the Smartlinks section of the partner interface. You just need to promote it accordingly.
In some of our tests Smartlink showed even higher EPC than traffic sent to offers manually chosen by affiliates!
Smartlinks become more advanced, but from the interface perspective nothing changed so far – these are the same Smartlinks you’re already familiar with.
Have you already used Smartlinks feature at Affise? Then no major changes from your affiliates are required. They can continue using the same Tracking URLs, while the new algorithm will do the rest.
In case you are not familiar with Smartlinks yet, check our knowledge base for a thorough guide on setting them up.
New Smartlinks are already available to the first clients and will be entirely rolled out by the middle of July. Wanna be among the first? Contact your Customer Success Manager!
