Binom Tracker – The Top Self-Hosted Tracker – 1+ Year Later Review

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

Back in 2018 I’ve reviewed Binom for the first time. It was on of the best trackers on the market in general and definitely the best self-hosted tracker, you can check my previous review here >>

Now, I want to give it an update, and check what’s new with Binom.

It was version 1.12 back in December of 2018 and now it is 2020 and version 1.14 was released. I’ve counted SEVENTY-SIX feature updates in their changelog, but will outline only those 10 that are really caught my fancy

So, let’s take a closer look to some of the new features that were added:

0. Multithreading algorithms, increased speed and stability

Back in 2018 Binom already was one of the fastest trackers on the market. You can run now up to 10-15M clicks per day on one server. Damn, that is quite a number

1. Landing ripper – Landing copy feature 

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

Well, this feature is pretty self-explanatory. You see a landing page you like – just take its URL and paste it in your tracker – you will see this landing downloaded. Done, now you can use it. If you have a tricky landing that simply doesn’t want to be grabbed – write to Binom support about it, they actually helped me with one to grab.

2. SFTP Landing Editor

I always used FileZilla, would have to upload/download landers to make changes but now you can conveniently edit landing that you’ve grabbed right from inside the tracker without having to use a 3rd party tool.

3. Integrations

I was pleasantly surprised that Binom released deep integration with Traffic Sources

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

Now you can start/stop campaigns in your Traffic Source directly from your tracker, in some cases you can also change bid

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

Also Binom now have integration with cloaker MagicChecker

And inside the tracker you can create rules for your traffic according to the data from MagicChecker!

4. Automated data purging

Since Binom is a self-hosted tracker this neat feature will help you to never run out of space on your server. You won’t be distracted by any irrelevant information

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

5. Responsive Design

Now you don’t need a specific app for your device. You want just to be able to open your tracker right from your mobile device and have full access to its features or stats. Well now you have it:

6. MD5 encoding for tokens

Don’t want anyone to understand token values that you’re sending? Now you have an option to encode them and instead of meaningful value send just an alphanumeric value in the URL

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

But inside the tracker you will be seeing everything

7. SSL check for domains

In Binom you can add unlimited number of domains and their script is also providing you with FREE SSL as well. Now if it happens that for some reason your domain gets banned by Google or its SSL expires – in Binom will automatically check it and alert you

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

Btw, you can also setup Binom to send you alert to your Telegram messenger once it happens. Pretty convenient actually if your domain gets banned while you’re in your bed or not if front of your computer for example.

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

Here they have a manual of how to set up a Telegram bot and Notification from the tracker.

8. Click API

Now that is just MINDBLOWWING.
Binom basically provides you with an option to get information from your tracker and send it to without even sending a user to it.

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review



Just check this manual out. So now you can send a user to your landing page without additional redirect. Use tracker’s rules without additional redirect. Send user from your landing page to your offer page without additional redirect. You can basically use all tracker’s features on your landing page via API. You need to have some basic php knowledge for this of course, but man those possibilities for redirects tracking and cloaking are a now at a whole new level for tech savvy affiliates

9. Inbound/outbound conversions log

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

Aff. Network says that sent you a postback, but you can’t find it? Your traffic source says that never receive a payout from you? Well now you can track all of that. With conversion log you can see everything that comes in your tracker and everything that comes out.

10. Customizable S2S Postback

Let’s say you want to send only 70% of you payout to your traffic source. Or you want to send only 60% of your leads to your traffic source. Or you want to send only approved leads back to your traffic source. Well now you can do it. Meet me on the dark side of force

Binom Tracker - The Top Self-Hosted Tracker - 1+ Year Later Review

I’m quite happy on how this awesome tracking tool continues to evolve with useful new features that make it more effecient for affiliate marketers to do their work. Especially now, when there’s an influx of new people wanting to get into affiliate marketing because of COVID-19. Time saved, using automation and doing things faster is going to be one of the most important moats an affiliate can have to set themselves apart.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Sign Up To ZeroPark Here and Get 5% BONUS when you load your account.

In this guide, I am going to expose one of the most profitable verticals on PUSH – DATING.

This is not MLM, it’s not guru bullshit. Skeptical? Don’t believe that dating makes money on push? Well, if you spy and sort by top ads you will see mostly dating ads running for ages, and common sense confirms – if there are lots of ads, they must be making money else why the hell would they buy so much traffic? RIGHT?!

This guide is 100% FREE, CoffeeZilla would be shocked there’s someone that’s been around for YEARS actually teaching stuff that really does make money!! If you haven’t yet seen this fake guru crusader on YT you should check him out, Stephen is a really funny guy that gets quite worked up on these fake gurus.

Anyway, you are going to need tools to make this shit work. A tracker – Get RedTrack, A WebHost to Host Your Landing Pages, I recommend you use landerlab.io it-s free, Domains (use Namecheap), and of course TRAFFIC – ZEROPARK is the name of the game for Push.

Here we go, let’s get started!!

Step #1 – Picking Offers

One of the most important things when picking offers is to pick offers that are PROVEN TO WORK ALREADY on the traffic source type.

If you pick new, untested offers, it’s very likely you are going to fail and lose all your testing budget without ANY (or very little) conversions. Trust me, I’ve blown thousands testing offers I thought would KILL, only to lose it all. YES, I still do these naive mistakes despite being in this industry for so damn long I even shock myself, but emotion takes over sometimes and I’m like fuck I love this offer so much IT HAS TO WORK, then data says otherwise and a few k down later, I realize it’s best to just test proven offers.

So to pick offers, hit up your AM at a dating network like TopOffers, and ask them to send over the best performing offers for PUSH and the last 7 days EPC report, so you can take a look at the best ones.

Then I’d pick a mix of geos.

One Tier 1 (like US,CA,UK,AU)
One Tier 2 (an asian country)

One Tier 3 (an african country)

And then, when I have which offers I want to run/what geos.. id begin my spying to see how others are running in that particular geo using AdPlexity Push.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You can’t run white people ads in AFRICA, when everyone’s black. You can’t run pics of hot MILFs from America in an ASIAN country when ASIAN guys are attracted to ASIAN chicks en masse. You always have to cater your ads to the local market, ie in saudi arabia, the women all wear the muslim clothes so u need to run ads that match the marketing style there. Don’t know what’s working in each contry? That’s why we spy with AdPlexity PUSH!

ONTO THE SPYING WE GO!!!!!!!!

Step #2 – Spying to See What Competitors Are Using To Promote Dating Offers with AdPlexity PUSH

In order to be able to see what the competitors are running and what’s working and what not, we need to use spytools.

For PUSH the best choice is definitely Adplexity Push!

So we are going to fire up Adplexity Push and spy on Dating Offers.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

We’re gonna start with setting the date filter to Last 30 Days:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

The second thing we should set is to sort ads based on received most traffic, and we can set that in the top right corner:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

After that we can go through and check all the dating ads we see.

Dating is very popular so we can find a bunch of dating ads right away just by setting up the date filter and ’’Received most traffic’’ :

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then you can check what GEOs, offers and traffic sources are your competitors running to give you an idea what might working, and also you can see device types and you can check their landing pages:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH
The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then you can also spy on specific countries by going to the Country Filter in the left sidebar and type in the Country you like. Let’s try Spain for example:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then you can find and go through the dating ads you find, and check the creatives, ad angles, landing pages, offers and all the things like that:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Step #3 – Setting up RedTrack, adding the offers, pre-landers, campaign configuration.

In order to be able to track your data probarly you will need a tracking software.

We are going to use RedTrack since it is one of the best tracking softwares out there.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

After you have signed up, or logged in to Redtrack there are you will need to add your landing pages, offers, networks and traffic sources to Redtrack.

ADDING A LANDING PAGE

Click on Landers on the top menu in Redtrack:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then click on the +New button

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Name you lander and put in the URL of your landing page. (you can even add tags if you want for organizing purposes)

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

ADDING A NETWORK

Next go to ’’Networks’’ in the top menu, and click on the +New button:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

This is where you are going to add the CPA network that you choose:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Redtrack already has a bunch of templates of CPA networks so you just basically need to click on the green Add button to add a network, but if you can’t find the network you want here, you can just click on Create Custom and add you network there.

ADDING OFFERS

After that go to Offers in the top menu and click on the +New button:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

This is where you gonna add the offers you promote.

Type in the name of the offer, select the network you added, you can set the payout, and add your Offers LINK in the URL box.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

IMPORTANT: Always ask your rep at your CPA network which subID to use to send the CLICKID on!

In our case it’s data2={clickid} so we need to add it to our offer link like this &data2={clickid}

ADDING A TRAFFIC SOURCE

Next we need to add the Traffic Source.

Go to Traffic Sources in the top menu and click on the +New button:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH
The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Just like at the Networks tab, Redtrack also has included a bunch of traffic source templates and since we are running ads on Zeropark all we need to do is to click on the green Add button, and that’s pretty much it.

CREATING A CAMPAIGN IN REDTRACK

The next step is to create a campaign in Redtrack, so we click on Campaigns in the tom menu and click on the + New button:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then we need to name the campaign, select the Traffic source, and Tracking domain (if you use the default one you can skip that step) and then select the Landing page and the Offer, then click save:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Basically that’s it, now we have our tracking campaign set up and ready to go.

The next step is to find some images and edit them in photoshop.

Step #4 – Preparing the images ready in Photoshop for the ZeroPark PUSH Specs

You can do this in many was, for example you can use Adplexity Push like I showed you before and spy for images like this one for example:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

You can check all the images you can find to get inspired and create your own creatives, and you can also just right-click on the image and click on ’’search Google for image’’ to find similar related images:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

I suggest to find at least 5 images / campaign to be able to test the creatives and stop the bad performing ones later.

After you have found your images fire up Photoshop or any similar software and make you image size 192×192 /JPG or PNG and since that’s the default PUSH image spec on Zeropark

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

So, now I’m going to Photoshop and create a new 192×192 pixel template:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then I just copy my image, and paste it in photoshop:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

And then with CTRL+T I adjust the size to fit in my 192×192 pixel box:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then I save the image as a JPG file and make sure that the image size is not bigger then 200KB because that’s the size limit on Zeropark push:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

And then I just repeat these step until we have 5 to 10 creatives for every GEO we run.

After we have collected everything we need, the next step is to create new campaigns in Zeropark.

Step #5 – Setting up the campaigns inside ZeroPark with custom whitelists

Now it’s time to set up our first campaign on Zeropark with custom whitelists with specific targets we want to target.

NOTE: If you don’t have a whitelist yet, you have two options.

OPTION A – You run a RON campaign, and hand pick the best converting targets/sources for your campaign.

OPTION B – Talk to your rep at ZP, tell them what vertical you are running and ask for a whitelist.

Go to Zeropark and from your dashboard click on New Campaign and select Push :

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

In the next step, we need to select Target since we have a whitelist of the top Targets and we want to run our campaigns only on those specific sources:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then you need to name your campaign and select the Country you want to target. Always create separate campaigns for each country.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Next you need to select language targeting, bid and budgets, and the device types you want to target.

If you want to run both on mobile and desktop always create separate campaigns for those.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

The next step is to add your creatives and angles.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Next copy the Offer URL from Redtrack and paste it in the Destination URL box, choose your campaign vertical and select Yes if you are using pre-landers:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Always make sure that your link contains the {cid} token, but luckily Zeropark will warn you if you don’t.

Then select your campaign vertical, and select Yes if you are using prelanders:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

After that we need to add our list of targets to the campaign, so click on Add targets and you can input them manually or select from the list.

Copy the targets and paste them in the box then click Add targets:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

And basically that’s how you set up a campaign in ZeroPark with custom whitelists.

After your campaign is launched and approved check your tracker and make sure that everything works, check the dynamic variables in Redtrack to ensure that you get the data from the traffic source.

To do this, go to your Redtrack campaign and click on the Report icon:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Then click on the Subs and make sure that you receive the data from Zeropark through the dynamic variables.

For example if everything is good you sould see the numbers of your creatives like this:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

This is really important because we need to know which creative performs good or bad, in order to be able to optimize later.

Optimizing your campaigns

When we start optimizing the first thing what we are going to do is to check how our creatives perform.

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

In the first step we are looking for some significantly bad performing creatives we need to stop. And as you can see in the example above is that creative #1 and #6 are significantly bad so we are going to get rid of those.

The other creatives are doing okay, creative #4 and #8 are also in minus but that’s not a big deal, we don’t have enough data there just yet so we gonna keep those run.

After we stopped the bad performing creatives what we want to do is to find and upload new creatives verry similar to our good ones.

Then you need to check your data regulary and repeat these steps every time when you see something significantly good or bad, in order to make your campaign profitable.

If you are running more then one landing page, you should also check which one performs better.

Like in this example we ran 2 landing pages:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

As you can see one of them performs better then the other so we are going to keep the better lander only.

We can easily do this by editing our Redtrack campaign and removing the lander by clicking on the X button, just like this:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Or we can put the Weight to 0, whatever you prefer.

Another thing you need to check and oőtimaze are the Tragets.

So go to your Redtrack campaign reports, and select the Target ID Sub:

The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH
The Ultimate Guide to Running Dating Offers on Zeropark PUSH

Check your data then go to Zeropark and stop the the targets that are not performing well.

Scaling

After you see some good results it’s important to scale further.

Continue optimizing your creatives by stopping the poor ones and add new ones to ensure the campaign won’t burn out fast.

TIP: For the creative images that do work, find SIMILAR looking images… try playing with the background color around the face to make it pop, ie solid yellow background instead of pretty blue sky. You can crop out the person and lay em over some nice background that gives it a good contrast so the person pops. In dating, big boobs pics work super good in T1 & T2 countries, so test blonde, brunette, red hat, green shirt, white shirt, black shirt, red shirt. Shirt with mesh, shirt with low cleavage.. be creative!!!

Scale by raising the budget on successful campaigns, and try different traffic sources with the same ads/landers in order to scale more.

So the key to successful campaigns is to TEST as much as you can, then optimize regularly and eliminate the crap that doesn’t work and continuously add new creatives that look like the winners.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

There are so many platforms in the affiliate marketing and Native advertising is by far the most favourable traffic source to me. I have seen tons of affiliate marketers try it out recently. It became pretty much everywhere in the last few years.

It also consistently increases in traffic every year, and I can assure you it is not going anywhere soon.

In fact, according to eMarketer and looking at the video part only for native ads, it has increased over 24% last year in spent in the USA alone. 

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

The best thing about video native ads is that people don’t usually see them as ads. They click on the creative thinking they will be taken to another article, which is something you must consider when designing your pre-lander.

Let’s see what they look like first!

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now
Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Pro tip: You can see the traffic source name in the ads. This is a manual spying trick that I use quite often.

What To Run On Native?

This is a question that I hear all the time. To give you a proper answer, we should look at it from 2 aspects, like all other traffic sources.

1 – What traffic sources do affiliate networks accept?

I can’t recall even one incident where my affiliate manager said “no” to native traffic. It’s pretty much accepted everywhere. It is known to be of a higher quality than other sources like push, banners and pops.

So, I would not worry so much about this.

2 – What offers do native networks accept?

This is the real question because native networks are getting stricter with time. For example, most of them now require putting the word “Advertorial” on top of the pre-lander.

However, unlike Facebook, you can get away with a lot of things, like gambling, crypto and nutra, especially when you develop a good relationship with the company.

To help you get started faster, here is a list of verticals that work very well (according to me) on native:

  1. Nutra
  2. Health & Beauty
  3. Crypto & Forex
  4. Insurance
  5. Solar
  6. Education

You can of course run many other verticals, but these have been tested by me and worked very well.

The best way to find offers, in my opinion, is to always talk to your affiliate manager.

Native Spy Tools

There are many spy tools for native in the market. I will mention my top 2, but you can feel free to google or ask for more.

Pro tip: Andor issues a weekly FREE spy report on iAmAffiliate. Check it out!

1 – Adplexity Native

If you’re an affiliate marketer, you must know about this already. By far my best spy tool for all traffic sources, not just native. This one usually costs $249, but with the iAmAttila discount, you can get it for $169 per month.

I don’t think there’s any point to write much more about Adplexity; however, if you are not very familiar with Adplexity Native, I highly advise you to read How To Find Everything A Specific Affiliate Is Running On NATIVE Using Their Affid Footprint?

2 – Anstrex – Native

This is a lot cheaper than Adplexity – it’s only $59.00 per month for native only or $124.99 for native and push together.

Obviously, their inventory is not as big as Adplexity, but if you’re short on cash, this is a good option to start and get familiar with the market.

Simply search for the vertical or keywords you are after.

I will take you through how to spy on native step-by-step for this one.

Let’s say we are looking for diet landing pages in the UK.

Go to the homepage and click on the search button at the top right.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Write “diet”.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

You need to be creative and find keywords that match your vertical. Using the same above example, you can also use “weight loss, fat, lose pounds, lose kg”.

Then filter by country in the top bar.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

You can also use any other filters on the top to fit your criteria like language, platform (device)..etc. 

Pro tip: Choose Gravity filter (1 to 2) to see what is working right now.

Let me illustrate the above tip! There are 2 important filters you should understand.

  1. Ad-Strength

This criteria measures the ad performance over the entire ad’s life. A value of zero (0) means that particular ad had almost no traction, and a value less than 10 means that ad had very little traction. 

This is an important measure only if you want to see the ad’s entire performance.

  1. Gravity

This criteria measures the ad’s performance over the recent few weeks, which is probably more relevant to our work. The number is usually small here: zero (0) means no traction, one (1) means the ad got traction recently, while more than one (1) means it currently has traction.

Choose whatever ad you think is relevant to your offer.

Let’s analyze an example to make sure you’ve got the full picture.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

And simply click on the ad and save it as an image. For the title, you can just copy and paste it into an excel sheet or something.

If you click on the image itself, you will get shown an option to reverse search the image in Bing, Google and TinEye.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

If you click on the ad title, you will see another page where you can download a landing page in addition to other options.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

If you are lazy like me ☺ just tick all the creatives you want, then click on “Zip” to download them. It will download titles and images together. However, the landing page part still has to be done one by one.

Of course, some landing pages are full of bad code you really do not want. Make sure you clean them out first or contact these guys to do it for you for a few dollars.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Here is a link for the above 4 creatives I downloaded for you to understand further.

Download The Creative Examples Here >>

Now you have got a few creatives proven they are working right now for you to try.

Ideally, you would need the following for a native campaign for a good start and testing:

  • 3 Images from spy + 1 from you
  • 3 titles from spy + 1 from you
  • 3 landers from spy + 1 from you
  • 2 Offers – even if it is the same offer from different networks

Now, let’s move to the next step.

I am going to assume you know how to add an affiliate network, lander and offer to your tracker. If not, please check out iAmAttila or STM Forum for beginner guides, or just google it. ☺

Native Traffic Sources

To make it simple, there are 2 types of native traffic sources:

  1. Direct Traffic Source like MGID, RevContent and Taboola. This is where you create campaigns directly with these guys.
  1. DSP (Demand Side Platform) like VoluumDSP, Earnify and Zemanta. This is where DSP networks act as a middleman with the direct traffic sources.

If you are starting out, I would recommend you use the first option as DSP requires different techniques in terms of understanding the incoming traffic. 

Here is a list of the native sources I know of:

  1. Outbrain
  2. Taboola
  3. Nativo
  4. RevContent
  5. MGID
  6. TripleLift
  7. NativeAds
  8. Sharethrough
  9. Media.net

Let’s dive right it in on how to set up a campaign in RevContent. 

Make sure you have a campaign link from your tracker first.

If you don’t know how to do this, the below guides will take you through the whole process step-by-step.

Now, sign in to RevContent. If you are new and about to sign up, take note that you will not be able to add a credit card to pay unless you have at least 1 approved campaign. 

Click on Create Campaign Boost

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Choose/type your campaign information.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

It’s pretty standard like most traffic sources; however, in case you’re a beginner, here’s what every field means.

Boost Name 🡪 your campaign name

Bid Amount 🡪 how much you want to bid per click – CPC

Budget Amount 🡪 choose between unlimited (DO NOT DO THAT) and daily budget (DO THIS)

Optimized for 🡪 engagement means the campaign will be optimized for people to click more; however, CPA ROI means the campaign optimization will be based on pixels on the thank you page, similar to Facebook.

Branded logo 🡪 RevContent will detect the logo from your page, but you can also upload your own.

Scheduling 🡪 when the campaign will start and end.

Pro tip: If you don’t know the best bid to start with, contact customer service at the bottom right of the page and just ask. ☺ They will answer you within 10-20 min.

Look, I have an example for you.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

And then choose your target audience. 

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now
Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Make sure you have selected Native from the dropdown above. And then choose other targets like country, city, devices,..etc.

Finally, add UTM if you have and any view tracking code if you want. Your tracker should do this anyway.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Now your campaign is saved.

Let’s upload some creatives.

Click on Content  

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Add new content or choose from a previously uploaded one. Let’s assume this is your first time, so paste your URL here.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

And then fill in your creative details.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

When possible, I highly recommend using variables in your ads.

In the campaign URL, you can use the following variables:

  • City – {city}
  • State – {state}
  • Country – {country}
  • Boost Id – {boost_id}
  • Content Id – {content_id} 
  • Account Id – {acc-id}
  • Widget ID – {widget_id}

These should have been set up in your tracker already when you added RevContent as a traffic source.

In the headline, you can use the following only: 

  • City – {city}
  • State – {state}
  • Country – {country}

That’s it! Your campaign is pending approval now. It should take a few hours to get approved.

Create Your First Native Campaign in 2020 Now

Congratulations!! Now you have your first native campaign!

Summary

  • Add an affiliate network to your tracker
  • Add a couple of offers to your tracker
  • Use spy tools to obtain at least 3 creatives and 3 landers to start with plus one of each of your own
  • Create a campaign in your tracker
  • Create a campaign in RevContent or any other native source
