As I begin to write this, it just hit me I’ve been a paid member of Stack That Money forum, now known as STM Forum since January 13th, 2014!! Time truly flies when you are having fun and making money online!

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

That’s over 5 years I’ve happily called this forum my hang out, my home away from home in cyberspace where I’ve met a lot of amazing, amazing people that I can truly connect with, and not just get rid of them with the – what do you do? oh I’m a web designer BS I have to say in normal life since no one in Hungary understands what the word affiliate marketing is, and what an affiliate marketer really does.

Time truly flies, thanks to STM I’ve met my first ever JV Partner with whom we did over 3 million USD in profit on CPI App Installs. It’s also the place where I met some awesome Nutra affiliates with whom I have masterminded and made another cool million running skin and diet trials in European geos in 2015/2016.

They do say connections are everything, and it’s one of the ‘hidden values’ members inside STM receive – they get to connect, mastermind, share failures and successes with other people that are in the trenches with them. I am living proof, having a network to bounce off ideas off of works, and can lead to a lot of success.

Another reason why STM is such insane value is because of their moderators. Some of my favorites, AMY, MATULOO, and stickupkid (the guy shares some insane value these days). Here’s why they are so awesome.

1) They are always online (do they even sleep?)

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

2) They are super nice and cool people that can introduce you to many great contacts that will help you get exclusive deals, offers, meet new potential partners to do joint-ventures with and many more!

3) They hold your hand, so if you are just getting started in affiliate marketing, the awesome moderators on STM will spend time with you to explain in detail what to do next, where you messed up, what you should try.

This is HUGE and WAY BETTER if you are on a budget. For example, if you were to buy any course for $500, $997, $1497 or $5000 or $14,000 despite the high price tag, the creator of the course doesn’t include holding your hand. They teach you some concept, and you are on your own after. But on STM, you pay a low monthly price of $99 per month and you have UNLIMITED 1 on 1 time with the most experienced affiliate marketers and also the mods to help you every single time!

At the time of me writing this review of STM Forum, there are topics 41,368 and a total of 354,137 posts. The most users ever online at the same time was 1159, which is insane since the affiliate marketing community is quite small.

This section has over 50,000 posts on its own, so its a big one. The place I like to hang out the most is called the Affiliate Marketing Forum section, it has the advanced stuff. Like technical guides to cloakers, trackers, different spying guides tools, and many other more advanced things. This is where you can learn how to do crazy stuff like clickjacking, content locking, high ctr image tricks, optimization techniques, scaling methods and many more.

There’s also a sub for HODLERs serious about investing their aff marketing profits into crypto risk.

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

The section for product owners is all about mingling with other product owners, learning how to make your own offers/products or simply finding direct advertisers to work with to skip the middle man, aka the network.

In general, you will also find Masterminds, now I used this section a lot to join tons of awesome skype groups, and telegram masterminds where people talk live strategy about FB Ads, Google Ads, Native, Pops, PUSH.

If you are looking to get inspired be sure to check out the success stories; these are true tales of other STM members that came in as newbies and struck gold here are some post titles, they are insane but true!!

and over 180 more success stories to keep you motivated and reassured that YES it is possible to make an insane amount of money with affiliate marketing, that it’s not fake, it’s not MLM, it’s not a scam (god I hate all those negative naysayers).

Traffic Sources

This section is great because it has a FOCUS. So if you are running Facebook Ads, you can click into Facebook, and see posts, questions, tips, guides, and tricks related to that traffic source only.

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

They also have SEO section, a section devoted to Shopify and Drop Shipping and ECOM in general, Native traffic sources covering Taboola, Outbrain, RevContent, to name a few native traffic sources. (I published a ton of their tracking tokens on my blog if you are interested, do a search – or my favorite tracker REDTRACK has most of them built in already.

There’s also a section on EMAIL, I met a really awesome mailer in this section who makes over a million dollars each year sending emails. Crazy!

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

Then there’s Pay Per Call, Display like Google Adwords, Bing, Search and many others. Too many to list frankly, I am getting bored myself listing them all. Best if you take a look at the screenshot below 🙂

Technical & Creative Skills

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

I attribute my success to my creativity, I always have a million ideas (of course most are bad, but there’s always some killer ones) STM has a section devoted to creativity and technical skills which are paramount to success in the media buying world as an affiliate marketer working off performance.

Here you will find the Tracking Campaigns section that has a wealth of knowledge covering everything from setting up various trackers to adding new offers, traffic sources, setting up special redirect paths. Tracking is very important to campaign success, and STM has guides on everything from prosper202 to the big boys like Binom, Thrive Tracker, Voluum and my personal favorite we’re using with my team RedTrack.

There’s an entire section devoted to Programming, Servers, and Scripts. In affiliate marketing, we use a ton of killer scripts to boost our profits including BackButton Script, pop-under, pop over, and special opt-in scripts to get people to register for our lists and whatnot every time. We also require a lot of powerful web hosting solutions including dedicated servers as well as shared hosting with unique IP addresses.

Did you know? You can use GeoIP to call out the users City, State, Country? You will learn how to do it on STM. What About tricks to automate deploying tons of servers to host unique landing pages all over the cloud? Yup, STM has a guide for that too.

Know that page load time has a direct effect on the success of your Google rank? Well, you will also learn that it also affects CVR (Conversion rate) so the slower the page, the less conversions that’s why they even have a guide on how to optimize for A,A,A performance!

There are seriously so much amazing pieces of content on STM from A to Z that you just have to see it! Good thing they offer a money back guarantee of 3 days if you don’t like it (but you will, trust me)

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

There’s also step by step guides for Photoshop, how to make high ctr banners, how to optimize landing pages using A/B tests like where to put the header image, where to put the heading and many more tips inside the Design, Imagery, Banners & Landers section

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

(BTW, there’s a company called Banners & Landers that creates landing pages, WordPress sites, and creatives for cheap..)

Copywriting, Conversion & Psychology – another favorite section of mine inside StackThatMoney premium forum, the reason why I like it so much? Because ANGLES and copywriting is the key to success. You can just rip and run content you find using spy tools like MagicAdz or AdPlexity, but these creatives and landing pages will never perform as good as if you make your own from scratch – so this section will help you learn about psychology and how to write high converting advertorials as well as ad creative texts that get great click-through rates!

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)


A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

No paid forum would be complete without a classifieds section, right? STM has its own divided into three sections;

  • Buy/Sell/Hire
  • Products and Services
  • Networks/Offers.

Within these walls you can find exclusive CPA offers from the networks, deals on things like programming, design, virtual assistants, and many other services affiliates need to launch their campaigns. There are also great deals on trackers, spy tools, and many others. I personally use and recommend MagicAdz for facebook spying, you can sign up here for a trial. Also, I recommend AdPlexity for mobile and native – you can sign up right here.

You can buy and sell accounts to different traffic sources under the Vendors section on STM, as well as get new partners for Joint Ventures (JV’s) where you do all the work, and the other person pays for the traffic – or vice versa, or some special setup you guys agree upon via STM Members only chat or skype.


A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

This is the section where all the things that don’t fit into the other categories goes. There’s an OFF TOPIC section where random discussions from How you deal with your downtime, to what everyone’s favorite steak restaurant is, to how to get over depression caused by affiliate marketing.

There are also tips on how to be more productive, my good pal Charles Ngo is like the king of productivity tips and many of the secrets are shared on STM right here in this section.

STM Members are travelers, they work from the beach on their laptops so you can be there are some amazing travel hacking tricks on how to get the lowest airfare, which places are worth visiting as an internet marketer, and what kind of attractions are must see and must do in different destinations. Some guys even talk about all the ladies and their stories on their travels.

Like Gerard Dela Porta who is famous for his Mr. Romance person, romancing 18-year-olds all across Thailand!

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

If you are not into ladies of the night, not to worry, there’s a ton of awesome ‘family’ affiliates and every day more are joining the ranks as the community is maturing. There’s tons of cool advice on what to do at conferences, what to bring, how to talk to CPA network reps, how to network, and many more.

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

Of course, health is very important especially if you sit on the computer for many hours in a day – so there are great tips on what to eat, when to eat, diet plans, work out routine advice for affiliates – things to do, and not to do in hotel gyms and many more that are all about Health. STM is home to the most famous affiliate marketer and health buff named FitAffiliate, Andrew. The guy always amazes me when I talk to him, super smart fella and true super affiliate!

Localized Discussions

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

STM now supports and offers discussion in many different languages including French, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, and Russian. I won’t dive into deep in what these sections have to offer, as I can’t read those languages but the biggest benefit here is you can meet people that speak your language whatever that may be. Here are some of the subsections in the localized STM forum: STM en Français, STM in het Nederlands, STM auf Deutsch, STM in Italiano, STM en Español.

Achievements and Awards

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

I won an STM Award a few years ago for My Ultimate Spying Guide and an iPad that my 3-year-old daughter still uses to this day. In this section, you won’t really find any mention of these awards sadly but they do offer a great place to discuss your goals, share your successes, and out some of your winning campaigns from the past or present.

If you are looking for motivation, then I highly recommend reading the Revenue Milestones sub-section in this forum. The stories there are true, they are real testimonials of people that are making money with affiliate marketing thanks to the knowledge they learned on STM. It’s not fake news as Donald Trump would say; it’s not fake video testimonials from Fiverr for $5 bucks. These are 100% real, honest, and truthful reviews to help keep you motivated even when things are though and you are losing all your money testing things (or buying data as they say).

Old But Still EPIC

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

STM has been around for years, when they started they didn’t have thousands of threads. I mean, everything starts at zero and you build it gradually. They have been truly successful thanks to the founding fathers of STM, Lorenzo Green aka Mr. Green. StackMan (Jordan) and Besmir. These guys used to run a lot of campaigns and share endless amount of case studies, and tips and tricks and you will find them in this section.

My favorite supermod, the legendary Caurmen who passed away recently wrote some of the most detailed, thorough guides that helped a lot of people make millions of dollars online. Many of his writings have now retired under this section as old knowledge, but they are still worth a read as the systems and way of doing things didn’t change much – only the policies that limit what you can and cannot do on traffic sources in 2019.

Luckily, STM is always at the forefront of what’s happening right now, and thanks to awesome moderators like www.matuloo.com and Amy aka Vortex on STM they continue to bring up to date information via case studies, how to guides that work today.

Help & Support

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

This is by far the most boring section, where you ask about invoices, fix account related issues like can’t log in to STM, having problems accessing the account, etc. Wanting to change your username, and other administrative stuff related to membership on STM.


STM Forum is competitively priced at $99 per month which is a steal if you think about how much value you get.

Let me explain what I mean by that. If you were to buy a course, which is usually one single method to do one thing – you are going to pay at least $500 for that course.

If you want to hire an expert like me, to work with you 1 on 1 via Skype, I am going to charge you $2000 per hour because otherwise it’s not worth my time.

On STM, you will pay $99 per MONTH and have access to not one, but over a dozen full-time moderators that are tasked with helping you and ‘hold your hand’ along your journey. It doesn’t matter that if you are a newbie wanting to quit your 9-5 and become a full-time affiliate marketer; if you are a family man that is sick of working two jobs to keep your family afloat and you are looking for a fresh new opportunity in a place where you can make millions. They treat everyone with an equal amount of respect, new or advanced they will help, offer suggestions, and follow up with you to see how you are doing. All for $99 a month.

People that can’t afford $99 a month should not even consider affiliate marketing. You need tools, a developer, a designer, – or you better be an awesome jack of all trades. With that in mind, the $99 a month is super low price for the amount of value you get.

Not only will you get access to full-time hand-holding, you will also be able to learn and get help from other affiliate marketers just like you who recently got started, people that have been at it for a while, or the super affiliates like myself (iAmAttila), Charles Ngo, John Crestani, Eric Gyepes, and many others that are active members on the STM community.


  • Insane amount of knowledge
  • The biggest super affiliates in the world use STM
  • You can network with people that understand what you do
  • You can get hand-holding level support to get you profitable
  • Insane value for $99 per month
  • Awesome member-only discounts to conferences, saas tools, services and more.


  • Not for people that are looking for a push button way of making money.


STM is worth way more than $99 per month… here’s my personal experience…

I joined STM in January of 2014, I’ve been a member now for over 5 years and one of the happiest members. STM allowed me to meet great people, learn a ton of new things. The learning curve is INTENSE when you join, like your brain being uploaded with fresh new data you never knew existed just like in the movie Johny Mnemonic.

A Very Detailed STM Forum Review - 2019 Edition (Updated October 5th)

I thank STM greatly for my success of making over 7 million dollars online ever since I started in affiliate marketing to the connections and knowledge gained from Stack That Money forum and its awesome members. How? Well, when I ran CPI installs years ago, I met a guy who told me I can run app installs on Google uncloaked, which enabled me to without fear test a shit ton of angles until I find insane high converting ones. For the CPI run, I was also able to go direct to Clean Master offer owner as I met them through a PM on STM, and get higher payout vs running it through a network.

Then came the nutra phase, where first we promoted trial offers with JumbleBerry (who I also met on STM) and then C2M (who again, I heard about on STM…) I was able to get in with the right contacts at the networks, get approved instantly as they knew me from STM (skipping the phone interview, and other bureaucracies) and got the best offers right away that were not public on the network and was able to spend $5-6 per CPA and get paid $36.. which is insane ROI if you do the math…

Today, I am big time into PUSH that I first heard about from MR PAYNE a legendary and super intelligent moderator on STM. This guy was running PUSH from the day chrome enabled PUSH it seems; he even made his own traffic source which gave him free traffic. His tips are what gave me a head start before everyone else starting hearing about Push and all the big networks like MegaPush, RichPush, ZeroPark PUSH started popping up with their own push traffic source offerings. So yea, STM gave me a lead advantage, again because I was a member.. without STM I would’ve learned about push later when everyone else – and as we all know, more competition = less profit margin, and makes things harder.

If you want to be ahead, and you want to be part of a community that’s continuously getting better and is state of the art, on top of current affiliate marketing trends and how to make money in 2019 – join STM FORUM! You will not regret it, guaranteed! Become one of us!

On A Limited Budget, Can’t Afford Expensie Spy Tools But Want to Know What Offers Are Killing it RIGHT NOW? Here’s just one of the perks of being a member at the iAmAffiliate premium community!

On A Limited Budget, Can't Afford Expensie Spy Tools But Want to Know What Offers Are Killing it RIGHT NOW?  Here's just one of the perks of being a member at the iAmAffiliate premium community!

Spy Tools cost a fortune, let me give you TWO actual, real life prices: An account on MagicAdz, the #1 Facebook Spy tool I use everyday costs $249 per month after you use the forever50 discount coupon that will get you $50 off each month.

The full suite of AdPlexity that includes Push, Mobile, Desktop, Native, Adult, eCom and Carrier spy tools can cost more than $1000 per month AFTER the 30% discount you can get at adplexity.com slash iamattila …

And then there’s similarweb pro, where an account with the most benefitial addon, the popular pages option costs over $1000 per month!!

To have all of these you’d need to spend over $2200 per month. Trust me, they are very well worth it, especially if you are a serious affiliate that runs volume, you can make this money back in no time, it’s an investment in your tool chest, your arsenal to win.

But what if you are a new guy, just looking to get started? How can you get a peak into what’s working when your budget is so tight you can’t buy these things?

Well the answer is Andor’s Weekly Spy Session!!

Andor is an awesome, and very smart guy from Subotica, Serbia. He joined our forum a couple months ago, and has been VERY active helping the members with their campaigns and sharing golden tips. Then one day, he told me, I do a ton of spying to see what’s going on, would it be cool to share it exclusively with the community so we can have more discussions as to what’s working, ideas on what to test, how to make more money?

And I was like SURE, that’s a brilliant idea!! At the same time, I was excited, because I realized, this is a HUGE TIME SAVER for so many people. Especially because he visits each landing page, and saves a copy in ZIP and uploads it to MEGA so anyone can grab it, recode it, edit it, make their own angles from it.

Andor just posted his latest Spy Session, #8 (can’t believe it’s been already 8 weeks since he started this awesome post series).

It features the top landers from the previous week Crypto / Diet / Skin / Casino / Sweeps / Ecom – 8.11.2019 to 8.18.2019 – on Native, Mobile, Push, and Display.

Looking through his guide this is what I learned about what’s hot right now..

MALAYSIA, Crypto is killing, the angle Mahathir Mohamad Told How to Give Wealth Back to Struggling Malaysians is killing.

someone also modified the 17 year old buys mom a house angle, and adapted it for MALAYSIA (changed the pics, localized the story a bit)

GERMANY, crypto is doing well on PopAds over there, using a german guy and his porsche as the main picture..

ITALY has a new crypto angle, showing how a lotto millionaire (an actual one) invested his lotto millions of over 71 million euros to 10x it grant cardone style!

it has the link to download lander, and Andor also posted the winning ad they used to push most traffic to this lander via PropellerAds

in the world of weight loss… this is what’s new..

in the USA, Oprah is back in the weight loss game!! She reveals how her 2018 weight loss secret gave her this fab new look in 2019! Running on content.ad, with an ad that will shock you.. (it shocked me)

in the UK, a 4 pound weight loss solution is running rampant on content.ad using cartoon style ad showing change from fat to skinny… the lander is all about dragons den.. which seems popular in both crypto offers over at Media500 and diet, skin too..

Andor dives deep into more verticals, showing you actual winning landers and their ads and what traffic source they ran the most last week in his spy guide..

here’s skin landers/ads, there’s casino… , there’s awesome sweeps landers, WHITEHAT stuff like mortgage, and refi..

this post itself is worth GOLD, and he does it 4x every month…

If you want to be part of an awesome community, you will get exclusive access to posts like this one, and many more worth 100x the value of membership, yup it’s only $50 a month to be a member of iAmAffiliate premium community… wanna join? click here!

BINOM TRACKER – Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

Alternative to Voluum

When Voluum decided to raise their prices 300%,  affiliates were outraged and trackers came into the spot light like never before.

Thanks to their shake up there’s a lot of great players that came to the affiliate and internet marketing space in 2018.

In the last few weeks I was asked by BINOM to take a look at their tracker as a lot of affiliates seems to be recommending it to each other.    I have to admit, when they reached out to me I was like oh god, not another tracker.   But then they showed me the FACTS below (see screenshot).  I was like hmm,  ok let’s take a look!! 

First, if you do a quick search in Adplexity – the #1 spy tool for native and mobile ads and order the results by tracker you will see that Binom is one of the top on the list  

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

Second, their public announcement post on STM (published in July ’18) has already obtained more than 9000 views and more than 100 replies with astonishing positive feedback.

So let’s try and find out why people are liking this tracker so much. 

  1. Setting tracker up on your own server (it’s self host)

Binom is self-hosted, which means from one side that no one will have access to your information, from other side that you will have to install it on your own dedicated or VPS server.      It is recommended to get your server close to your target audience, so if you run US traffic the most, be sure to pick up a server there, if it’s in Europe, get an EU server (NL is really good location) if its in Asia then look for one there.

For most people that is a big NO, since it is too much trouble, BUT not with Binom.

They have 2 options for you:

  • Ready-to-go script that will install tracker and all necessary software to your server and that will OPTIMIZE it.
  • Or you can simply ask their support and THEY WILL DO EVERYTHING for you. So you just provide them with access to your server (that they’ll help you to choose) – and in 30 minutes you get ready to go tracker.

Btw, if it happens that you will get any issues with your tracker or server – they will fix it as well. So you don’t have to know anything about servers at all.

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

They also can provide you with referral link for Digital Ocean Hosting, there you will have free $100 for 2 months, which basically means that you will use almost any server for free for 2 months.

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

So, as for me I have just asked support of what should I do (via live-chat) and they guided me through everything step by step and my tracker was installed in 10 minutes!

2. First impression

Creating campaigns is easy and efficient making it fast to setup a campaign:

New Campaign creation in Binom:

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

I personally use RedTrack, but love how much features BINOM has and how fast it is.

The layout is very good for affiliates because its like an all in one place and you don’t have to click around much to setup a campaign really fast.

Since I get used to cloud trackers I was pleasantly surprised by MonitorTab where you can see your server’s condition and license details. This is VITAL.   

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

With monitortab you will be able to check your server load under traffic with a graph that updates every minute and the size of your database with the storage left and all errors or system notifications if any occur (they also could be duplicated as notifications via sms, telegram, email)  

Remember how in the past I mentioned we used to pay for a 3rd party monitoring system Pingdom to monitor my tracker?  With Binom they will send alerts for free based on the criteria you setup.

Another big concern for people with self-hosted trackers vs SAAS cloud is loss in performance. I myself didn’t run sufficient amount of test, but what I’ve read from other users at STM that is not the case with Binom:

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

In general, I would say that there is not much of a difference judging by replies from other affiliates in this thread:
CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE THREAD If you don’t have an STM account click here to get one.

 Here are some more benefits that come to mind with self hosted BINOM

  • Fast interface. Reports for thousands and even millions of clicks are loading in few seconds.
  • Access and data. No one will have access to your data and profitable campaigns, awesome if you are paranoid about that.  And you will be able to store clicks for as long as you like (but in most cases for as long as you have free space on your server)
  • If you still want to optimize your campaigns to the maximum you can always create several servers (Binom gives 50% discount on all additional licenses.)

3. Features I like:

Finally, the sweet part! Here I will provide you only with features that I like in Binom, full list of features you can find in their docs:

  • No-redirect tracking

So let’s say you like all the tracker’s features but you (or moderators)don’t like that extra redirect that most trackers usually adds (from the tracker to your landing page). There are 2 options how Binom can help you to avoid that:
Option 1: if you have all landing files, you can simply put them into .ziparchive and upload it into your tracker. So you can basically store your landings in your tracker. And all your .php scripts, cloaks and other stuff will still work the way they should work.

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

Option 2: if you don’t have the landing itself, but you can still add some lines of code to your landing, you can use LP Pixel feature. Under advanced settings in your campaign you’ll find this code. Just insert it in any landing and you can start sending your traffic directly on this landing, avoiding the campaign link itself and tracker-landing redirect. All information will be send to your tracker automatically

  • Advanced traffic distribution system

Routes of any complexity. More than 20 criterias(IP, GEO, device, OS, language, any GET parameter, etc.) by adjusting which you can setup any traffic distribution funnel you like.

And above all that another great feature I love in Binom – Smart rotation.

So for example you have several landing pages in your campaign and if a user has already seen your first landing page and didn’t convert on it, it will be reasonable to think that showing him exact same page again might be not that good move. With smart rotation tracker automatically remembers which user which page was shown and on every time they open your campaign link – they see new page. Which end up growing your CTR potential.

In some cases, you might want that user always see exact same landing/offer no matter how many times he opens your campaign link. In that case Binom has Fix on Paths option. It might sound a bit complicated at the start but after short practice you will be able to create funnels of any nesting levels with Binom.

  • Reporting System

First there are the marks in the campaign reports to rate placements as good or bad ones

With this feature you can rate the placements and sort them by rating or just filter them and show the good ones or the bad ones.

It´s a really nice feature to keep a better overview over the placements.

Also in the reports you have filters

You can save them for later use so that you don´t have to create them every time new.

When you then go to the campaign report you just click filters and choose directly the saved filter.

Saves lots of time when you go through the reports often.

And when you want to export the placements to blacklist them you have several options for export: CSV, TXT and Clipboard.

Clipboard is very helpful, you don´t need to open a file and copy the placements from there.

Just export them to click board and paste them into your traffic source.

  • Landing protection

Competitors are always spying.

Landing protection is a simple feature that will block any direct access to your landing expect from campaign URL. That might not always protect your landing from being ripped by spy tools,but that is another barrier you might want to add. Simply paste code from your tracker to your landing and add special key-token to your link.

  • Unlimited domains + Free SSL + Google ban check
BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

So unlike many other trackers, in Binom you can add any number of additional domains for your campaigns + all those domains will have free SSL instantly and which is even more important Binom can automatically (every 10 minutes) check all your domains for Google ban. But what if domain was banned while you were not into your tracker, so you can’t perform actions instantly? In that case Binom can send you a notification, it has several ways of doing that:

But notifications could be sent not only about blocked domain. About this -further

  • Triggers & Notifications

Binom can actually send you messages on all sort of things, like if you are out of space on your server or if a new update is released or if CTR on specific campaign is lower than you want it to be.

Actually tracker will not only send you a notification, but also perform some actions in tracker itself. For example, if you want to automatically change your funnel settings if LP CTR in particular campaign drops lower then,let’s say, 20%. You just creating new Trigger in tracker:

You specify its condition and action from a list. And you specify notification method. So tracker will automatically perform all specified actions and also send you a notification via sms, email or to your telegrambot. Email notifications are look like that:

So you shouldn’t worry anymore about your domain getting banned by Google or about your landing page become inaccessible or about CTR decrease while you are sleeping. I got a hint from Binom guys that in the next update they are going to implement Auto optimization!

  • Custom tables & Events

In Binom, to each click you can allocate up to 10 Events – different numeric values. This comes handy when you want to add some custom scripts to your landing or just want to analyze your traffic even more deeply.
For example, you know that bot at mobile traffic can be identified by lack of‘window.orientation’ parameter. So you can write a simple script on your landing that will mark those who has this parameter with let’s say event#9. 

In that case your code will look like:

And you will be able to distinguish in tracker bot clicks from people clicks. But compare all clicks manually is not the handiest option and that is where Custom columns will help you. You can create column with any formula you like, for example, you can create formula for Bot % using event9:

And check for bots % in report then:

  • Notes & Group working

The simplest but yet powerful feature that made exactly the way you want it to be. A simple note field available for every campaign, that helps you organize your thoughts, track progress, all changes that you’ve made and tests that you’ve performed. Oh and you can also add pictures or gifs there.
If you work in a team you can make a little chat there

You can create unlimited amount of users in Binom with different access rights and with separate access to different campaigns.

  • Access page hiding & URL customization

This last one is abit trick and might be not that easy to grasp, but still I can’t avoid speaking of it, since it is so cool.

Your competitors or moderators can find out about your tracking system if they crop your campaign link to just a domain, they will see your login window.In order to avoid that (and for bunch of other reasons) Binom offers URL customization options. You can hide your default index page, so no one will see your tracker.

Here you can customize any tracker’s URL parameter to make it less obvious.

  • Clean URL

The meaning is pretty self-explanatory; in case you don’t want your campaign links to look more slick you can go from: https://domain.com/click.php?key=n9v1sml9rkqw1na53fe6

To something like: https://domain.com/how-to-make-money

Just hit that option in your Campaign’s settings:

More readable link is -> more trust form users -> better ROI.

But that is not all, you can go even further and ADD A CAMPAIGN ON AN INDEX PAGE OF YOUR DOMAIN.

BINOM TRACKER - Self-Hosted Tracker used by top affiliate Pros

Why do you want to do that? For example, some Facebook moderators tend to check your campaign URLs in the way of just checking main domain only.
Let’s say you have a Campaign link like: 


Moderator might actually go to just https://yourdomain.com – just to check how legit your website is. But since you foresee that moderator will actually open another campaign in your tracker (using integrated landing this will happen without redirect!).
So you will be able to see every user that happen to be so curious (and their IPs also) and create new cloaking rule (for example by IP) on your main campaign.

That is just another tip for Facebook cloaking

4. Pricing & Conclusion

Many affiliates are afraid of self-hosted solutions since they think thatthey will lose in redirect speed and in Geo distribution. Cloud – is another example of good marketing that stuck in our heads and it is almost shocking for lots of affiliates that self-host nowadays can be as good as cloud.

But, of course, the tracker itself and server should be optimized. Guys from Binom do understand that and by my opinion they provide one of the best solutions on the market today. In some areas I would say Binom is more affiliate-oriented than Voluum itself, since it looks like Voluum starts to position themselves as an enterprise solution.

Which leads us to pricing:
Binom license costs $99/month. Server will cost you from $15 (handle around 300K clicks/daily) to $100 (handle around 10M clicks/daily).

But don’t take my words for granted, for promo-code IAMATILLA you will have free first month to try Binom and 40% discount on 2nd month.


P.S. do remember that their support can provide you with referral link to a host, so it basically means that you can test Binom for 1 month without paying anything.
