Affiliate software integration is more than just how you upload software to your server or how this digital code is integrated into your website. Integration needs to look at how affiliate software is integrated into your entire online business. Taking this holistic approach to software and your business is far more important than how each piece of software or one aspect of your business operates separately.
So here's a shortlist of real-world considerations to examine:
Multiple Websites / Businesses – Unless you don't try, it's highly unlikely that you will stop at 1 website and / or 1 online business. Make sure your system allows multiple domains and several affiliate programs without having to buy a 2nd or 3rd or 4th software license. Affiliate tracking software and Track Campaigns – Affiliate Pro provided by the affiliate network software to help boost web visitors and consequently.
Paying Your Affiliates – Because you have to pay every month or maybe every week, you will need an easy-to-use payment system to reduce this workload.
Affiliate Payment Reports For You – For accurate calculations, you need a simple and automated process for creating and maintaining payment history.
Affiliate Payment Reports For Your Affiliates – As an affiliate marketer, it is important to know that you are paid as the actual payment itself. Knowing your future income is also very important, especially when recurring payments / recurring commissions are involved.
Affiliate Sales Trends – Which affiliates have sales that go up and which sales have dropped? You need to have a system that highlights this trend for you so that you can see "up and down" and give them special attention while biting each sales slide.
"Secret" Custom Landing Page – It is common for super affiliates to want to market your product different from the masses. This is what often makes them "super" so you must be able to accommodate specific landing pages in existing affiliate programs and you must be able to do this in a manner that is transparent to others.
