Campaign settings page consists of four tabs: General, Destination, Filters, User Access. Let's explore it one by one.
General tab as it comes from the title of the tab is used to specify general settings of your campaign.
Full name (1) of the campaign will be filled automatically depending on other settings and can not be edited. It has Traffic source - Geo - Name format.
Fill the Name (2) field with something meaningful to you, for example M 30+, etc. This field is required.
Specify the Countries (3) in which you want to run the campaign or leave it blank to run the campaign worldwide.
The next required field is Traffic Source (4). You need at least one traffic source to run your campaigns. Refer to this article to set up a traffic source.
In the Tracking domain filed (5) you specify the domain which is used to track clicks and visits of your campaigns and landers. This is one of the most important settings in the campaign. Please, refer to this article to know how to set up a domain.
After you define your tracking domain, a new input field will appear called Money pages. Define pages where you want to show your offers.
Category (6) field is also required. Categories serve to group your campaigns. One campaign can belong only to one category. You can create an unlimited number of categories. Manage your categories under Settings > Categories menu.
Use Tags (7) to add colored labels to your campaigns and flow. Type tag name in Search field and see only campaigns or flows with that tag. Manage your tags under Settings > Tags. Tags are not required but helpful to organize your user interface.
Additionally you can leave a Note (8) to your campaign.
Advanced settings section hides some extra settings.
Choose a Cost model, which defines how traffic cost is tracked. Available options are:
Auto - visit cost will be automatically taken from your Traffic Source.
CPC - Cost per click. When you choose this option, a CPC field will appear, where you manually set a price of a visit.
Do not track costs - no costs will be tracked, even if passed from the Traffic Source.
Before you set up your campaign destination you need to become familiar with terminology and understand the difference between Flow, Path and URL campaign destination. Please read this article.
Switch between Flow, Path, or URL.
When choosing the Flow you need to select predefined flow. Read this article to set up a flow.
Choosing the Path you are going to create a path right inside the campaign. Read this article to get more info about path setup.
Choosing the URL you need to specify the exact URL you want your traffic to come.
Now you see the option to choose redirect methods.
302 is a regular http redirect. It is the fastest way to redirect. The referrer data is passed to the campaign endpoint.
Meta refresh erases your lander HTTP referer, but only when you link from lander to offer via https connection.
Double meta refresh pretty much the same as Meta refresh but erases HTTP referer completely. This is the slowest way to redirect.
Optionally, you can append parameters (these blue pills is the shortcuts for parameters) to your URL. The full description of parameters can be found here.
Filters are used to prevent your landers from being from being seen by bots and unwanted visitors.
First you need to set a Filter mode (1).
- Allow all filter allows all kinds of traffic to visit your lander;
- Filter all filter stops all kinds of traffic to visit your lander;
- Active filter applies filter settings you'll be setting further;
- On High Alert filter is the same as Active, but additionally filters five more visits after each filtered visit in Filter all mode.
If you choose to use Active or On High Alert filters you are able to apply Device filters (2) and use Filter templates (3). These filter settings are self explanatory.
In addition to basic filters you can set Custom rules.
Status: activates or disables the rule.
Type: Filter blocks traffic according to rule, Pass through is the opposite, it allows traffic corresponding to the rule.
To use Custom rules you need to Add condition to rule.
You can set any number of conditions in the rule and as much rules per campaign as you want.
User Access tab
Here you can specify who has access to the particular campaign according to the user role.
You must specify a Manager for a campaign to track his/her performance.
More info about user roles can be found here.
