  3. Create a New Campaign

    Before you get your first advert or link you need to "Create a New Campaign".

    a) Enter a new "Campaign Name" as per the screenshot below.

    b) Leave the "Campaign Type" as "Trader Campaign". This is set for campaigns for individual investors.

    Only switch "Campaign Type" to "Sub Affiliate Campaign" if you want to refer Sub Affiliates (these use different referral links and landing pages).

    c) Leave the "Commission Type" as per the current setting (the setting for your affiliate account)

    d) Click "Add"

    You have now set up a Campaign and this will be shown in the table below, e.g.:

    Hint: If you are running multiple affiliate websites, just set up a new Campaign for each of your websites.

    Again, use your domain names e.g. MyFinancialSite1.com, MyFinancialSite2.com, for each different Campaign Name.

    This will keep your statistics separate so you can compare the performance of your different websites from your affiliate account.

  8. Raw Text Links (for Advanced Coders)

    We recommend that affiliates use the text links given via the ad server, see steps 4-7 above.

    However, affiliates who are experienced coders can also get a text link, as per the screenshot below, i.e.:

    a) Click the "Text" tab

    b) Click "View"

    c) On the pop-up, click "HTML Source"

    d) Inside the code you will see a text link which you can use, e.g.

    http://welcome.financialaffiliates.net/afs/come.php?id=####&cid=####&ctgid=####&atype=##

    Warning:

    Do not alter this link or the IDs. You may break the redirection and / or your affiliate ID.

    The ID in these links are not the same as your affiliate ID (or AffID), (your AffID is picked up in the redirection in conjunction with the Campaign ID.)

    e) If you are not sure how to do this, please contact us, we can check your link and/or give you a correct link.
