AvantLink’s Custom Link Builder gives affiliates the opportunity to build tracking links to any page on a merchant's website in seconds.
BUILD YOUR CUSTOM LINK
Navigate to Ad Tools>Custom Link Builder. There is also a shortcut to the Custom Link Builder on the affiliate dashboard.
In the Landing Page URL input, you can either:
- Choose a merchant’s homepage. By default, the list will show the homepage URL for all of the merchant’s you have an active relationship with. (Or)
- Enter any URL from the merchant website (e.g. a specific product page, etc) you would like to create a tracking link to.
Then click the "Create" button - it’s that simple.
The tool also provides optional advanced settings that allows for the building and tracking of the performance even easier:
- Select whether you wish the tracking link to take a Hyperlink or HTML format. HTML format will also track impressions.
- Select the affiliate website that the custom link will be placed (if you maintain more than one website in your AvantLink account).
- Add a Custom Tracking Code (CTC) to track the use and performance of the custom link
- Select a URL Shortening option. Recommended especially for social media posts.
Custom link building provides a tremendous amount of flexibility and allows you to create a tracking link and drive your readers to any page of your active merchant partners.
