AEBN Guide: Affiliate Campaigns

The new campaign tool lets you create a campaign and associate it to a particular theater or sales tool in order to gauge its effectiveness. Campaigns track traffic and conversions to help you better understand where sales are generated on your sites.

You can create unlimited number of campaigns to fulfill all of your tracking needs.

How to Add a New Campaign to a Sales Tool

You can add a new campaign to any of our current sales tools. While the interface is slightly different on each tool, you may add a new campaign and then associate it to the sales tool. Each tool now has an optional “Create Campaign” step in the customization process. It will look something like this:

To create a new campaign, type the name into the textbox beside “Create a New Campaign,” then click “Add.” This campaign will now be added to your campaign list, and to the sales tool you are generating.

How to Add an Existing Campaign to a Sales Tool

If you wish to add a campaign you’ve already created to a sales tool, you can do that as well. Again, it is slightly different for each tool, but it will look something like this:

You can add the existing campaign by clicking on the “Choose your Campaign” option in the dropdown menu and selecting the name of the campaign you’d like to add to the tool:
