Voluum TRK Entry Get Started Quick Guide

In this guide we describe how to set up a complete campaign funnel. That means that, after you finish, some Internet users will see an advert for an offer that you have selected to promote. Part of them will be interested in it. And a few of them may take this offer. So after completing this guide you will not only have both theoretical and practical knowledge, but potentially a profit. Pretty sweet, right?

Right. Let's get to it.

Main Actors and the Money Flow

In general, you need three things to create a campaign: an offer to promote, a source of traffic, and a tracker to match those two in the best way possible. Each of these things has a dedicated platform.

Offers:

Offers are aggregated in affiliate network platforms. These networks connect people that have offers with people that are looking for offers to promote. The latter refers to you, affiliate marketer. Affiliate network platforms are the ones that will pay you money each time someone takes your offer (in an affiliate language: when a visitor converts). That's where your revenue will be coming from.

Traffic:

Traffic is a broad term that describes any source of visitors: ad networks, social media platforms, search engines and more. Typically, traffic is bought in traffic source platforms. Generally speaking, they offer a stream of visitors with concrete characteristics to buy. You will have to spend some money there, first for learning what works, later for to make money and continue learning (because the learning process never actually ends). Contrary to what some over-optimistic blog posts or articles are trying to tell you, there is no 'free money'. Even top affiliates spend money to buy traffic. They simply earn X times more. And that's what you are aiming for.

Tracking:

Tracking is done by Voluum. A tracker acts as an intermediary between platforms described above. It measures, manages and optimizes. In this guide, you will use Voluum not only to track, but also to browse offers from various affiliate networks and to manage your running campaigns. Once you set everything up, you will only need Voluum for your day-to-day work. And you will only need to go outside if you decide to scale up. This simplicity is why Voluum is a great investment.

Constant optimization and testing new hypothesis will be your main focus as an affiliate marketer. Voluum will tell you how to do so. It will show you where you are losing money and what market shares are profitable. It will squeeze the most of your traffic by; allowing you to send it to different, more suitable offers. You can also optimize your landing pages by directing traffic to landing pages in a user's native language. Finally, Voluum lets you cut down on unprofitable traffic and focus on the traffic which does convert.

Ad Types

While you browse the Internet, you come across advertisements shown in various types. Click any of the ad types below to see an example:

Each ad format works better with some offer types and audiences (your visitors). In this guide we will find an offer suitable for a pop campaign available in one of the Tier 3 countries. Pop campaigns are cheap, easy to manage, and offer a sizable number of ad views. Perfect for beginners. Do not be alarmed if you do not know some of these terms. We describe everything along the way.

The Checklist

In this guide we will go through these three types of platforms, each in a separate step. Your checklist looks like this:

Completing each step will take some time. Some of it is a learning curve, and some of that time is simply waiting for an account or offer approvals. So how much time should you dedicate towards this guide? The answer is: as much as it is comfortable for you. The winners are not necessarily the fastest ones, but most definitely the best ones.
