TONIC. as a Traffic Source

What Are Zero-Click and Pop Types of Traffic?
  • Zero-click, also known as domain redirect, is a traffic type where a visitor is directed towards your landing or offer page when this person mistypes a domain name. By correctly targeting possible misspells with keywords you get visitors that are already searching for a product related to what you offer, so a conversion is more likely than with other types of traffic.

  • Pop traffic is a type of traffic where your creative is displayed on top of publisher's web page, usually in a separate window.

Before You Start

Here are some prerequisites to consider before going any further:

  • You should have an active Voluum account.

  • You should have an active TONIC. account with some funds added.

  • You should have an offer to promote.

  • And optionally you can have a landing page ready.

Once you have everything ready, go to the first part of this guide.

I. Create a Campaign in Voluum

First, you need to create a campaign funnel in Voluum. Creating a campaign will generate a campaign URL that will be your redirect URL to submit to TONIC. In order to do that, perform the following steps:

  1. Create an offer element. Read the Add an Offer to Voluum article to learn how to do that.

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

  3. Create a traffic source element. Voluum provides you with a TONIC. trusted traffic source template, so you can use it and skip most of the manual setup. In order to use this template, perform the following steps:

    1. In Voluum, go to Traffic sources.

    2. Click the Create button and select the Traffic source option from the drop-down menu.

    3. Select the TONIC. template.

    4. Click the Next button.
