All of these steps are important for the development of your marketing program.

Now, there’s a tool you can use to help you go through the program with ease and confidence, the Ad Tracker. For many experienced and successful affiliate marketers, the Ad Tracker is the key to a successful affiliate marketing program.

What precisely is an ad tracker? It is a marketing tracking software or program that allows you to trace and take note of every click-through made by visitors of your site and by other customers who got your referral link. You can use ad tracking services as well, but this will of course cost you. With the ad tracker, you can keep an eye on the progress of your marketing campaigns even offline.

Likewise, you will want to make sure every dollar or Euro you spend in your advertising campaigns is wisely spent. With the help of the ad tracker, you will know accurately how many and which of your links where clicked on, how many clicked on your links, how many of your emails were opened and how many of those who opened your email clicked through to your business site and purchased a product, how many products were purchased, which of your banner ads or links brought in the most leads and sales and many other vital facts and figures.

Sales records and all data stated are necessary in any business as this could determine if your affiliate program is still worth continuing. This will also help you determine which of your marketing strategies are most effective and which are most beneficial for each product or service that you are promoting.

Every decision and plan you make must be well grounded on facts. Your decision or plan of action may not be the best, but it is important not to lose your momentum. You can’t just decide to terminate your affiliate program, just because you don’t earn big in an instant.

If your campaign doesn’t produce results or encourage your prospects to buy, don’t be disheartened and jump to the conclusion that your affiliate program is a failure. If it works for others, it will work for you. Find out whether your advertising techniques are effective or not, which works best for your program and which doesn’t.
