Normally, ClickBank will give you the option to append a tracking code to your affiliate hoplinks. However, if you want to process an extensive tracking, then your best bet is to use an ad tracker. Making use of an ad tracker differs when it comes to vendors and affiliates. However, the benefits that an ad tracker gives are optimal for both of them.
Ad Tracker for Product Owners
For a product owner or vendor like you, you should use an ad tracking program that can track an action such as a sale. This can be done by appending a line of tracking code to the “thank you” page.
Ad Tracker for Affiliates
Ad tracker for affiliates differ from that of the product owners mainly because unlike vendors or product owners, affiliates will not be able to access the “thank you” page. Therefore, as an affiliate, you need to make use of an ad tracking tool or program that will be able to track events happening at a remote site.
An example of an excellent ad tracker that can help you with this is AdTrackz.
All that you need to do is to convince or let the product owner or vendor know that he has to append one line of code to his website in order to allow you, the affiliate, to track their sales. Moreover, with this ad tracking tool, there is no need for the affiliate to purchase the program.
