I did a search for this earlier and couldn’t find anything, so apologies if this has already been posted!
I’ve done email optins in the past, mostly on PPV, and while tracking the best LP optin-wise is really easy with GetResponse (it gives you views/signup ratios for each webform) tracking keywords is a bit harder. Then today I had to figure out how to make it work if I wanted to send a user who opted in straight to an affiliate offer and track my optin rate and conversion rate for each keyword. Here’s how to do it:
First things first, you’re going to install this prosper mod that you already should have because it is awesome: https://nerdyaffiliate.com/pay-per-cl…or-1-5-x-1-6-x
I don’t actually know if it works with the newest versions of P202, because I use old ones, so if in doubt try it on a new install.
Now, you’re going to create your optin page and a file called continue.php
When you’re customizing your optin box, make sure you send your customers to continue.php after they have opted in.
In prosper, set up a new affiliate network called "email lists". You don’t have to, but I do it to keep organized.
Set up your affiliate link in prosper as the affiliate link for the offer you want to send people to.
Next, set up your landing page. You want to make it the link to your optin page, so we’ll call it register.html. Get your landing page links. Paste the landing page code in register.html and the redirect code in continue.php.
Now all you have to do is grab your links and set everything up normally. Basically, what this code does is recognize everybody that signs up to your email list by clicking submit as having clicked through and gone from your landing page to the offer page.
With the prosper mod I posted, it will list out for you in the "keywords LP CTR" tab exactly what your optin rate for each keyword is, as well as your conversion rate on the affiliate offer. The higher your keyword LP CTR, the higher your optin rate.
Feel free to ask any questions and I’ll answer if I can.
Thanks for that tip. Quick question for you … the case is same as yours but the only difference is I want to take the user for a long ride … lp1 with an optin form once user enter their eml takes them to lp2 (now this is 2nd lp with optional offer and again 3rd lp, 4th lp …) in your case it was straight to the offer …. so my question to you is how can we track lps with a different offers.
Well I guess it depends on exactly what you want to do.
Do you mean that you get them to optin on your squeeze page, then it takes them to LP2 (an affiliate offer). If they don’t fill out LP2 and try to close the window it takes them to LP3, and if they don’t fill that out it goes to LP4, etc?
Ok, well I don’t know if this will work, but I think it should…
Set up 5 campaigns for each of your five offers (or whatever).
The subid variable SHOULD pass through I think. If not you’ll have to manually add it to your affiliate links with the GET function.
