Admixer as a Traffic Source

Admixer's ecosystem provides an end-to-end solution for both advertisers and publishers. One of their solutions, Admixer.TradeDesk, can be used to buy traffic from their marketplace. From Voluum's perspective, this is a traffic source. The following article describes how to setup Voluum to track traffic coming from Admixer.

Before You Start

The following things are required for the correct setup:

  • An active Voluum account.

  • An active Admixer account.

  • An offer, and optionally, a lander.

Once you have these things ready proceed with the guide.

I. Create a Campaign in Voluum

The first thing you need to do is to create a campaign in Voluum. This will provide you with a campaign URL that you will submit as a landing page URL in Admixer. In order to do so, perform the following steps:

  2. (Optionally) Create a lander element. Read the Create a Lander Element article to learn more.

    1. Go to the Traffic sources tab.

    2. Click the New traffic source button.
