I’ve been hearing a lot about AffiliateReporting.com, but hadn’t had a chance to dig into it until this week… and I am very impressed.
If you’re not familiar with AffiliateReporting.com, it’s a search engine marketing (SEM) software platform designed for affiliates. The suite of SEM tools come from m o v e software, and the software was developed for m o v e marketing, a Commission Junction Performer and winner of the CJ Horizon Award For Innovation, that generated over $20 Million in affiliate commissions from over 500 advertisers using these SEM tools.
After playing with their tools, I touched base with the folks at AffiliateReporting.com, and they were willing to provide an extended free trial – usually it’s 14 days, but if you use this link you’ll get 30 days. Please note, this 30 day trial offer expires on October 16th at midnight PST.
Anyhow, some of the features I really liked…
- AutoSYNC: loads reporting data from the most popular search engines and affiliate networks.
- AutoBID: intelligent systems use key performance metrics to automate bidding, so no human intervention or setup is required.
- AutoCOPY: replicates campaigns across multiple search engines in a single click.
- Alarms: monitors changes in CPC, click volume, and other key metrics as often as every 5 minutes.
These are automated or backend processes, so there is nothing to really show you, but there are also aspects of the interface I like a lot, too…
The dashboard (see below) provides critical information at login, such as Daily Profit & Loss Graphs, Biggest Winner’s and Loser’s Summary, and Alarms.
There are dozens of reports for affiliates to analyze profit by ad, site, search engine, campaign, ad group, and keyword. Keyword level reports like the Biggest Winners and Losers (see below) bring attention to the keywords that need immediate attention.
And then the Keyword Manager (see below) allows affiliates to drill-down into detail on a single keyword to analyze performance, change bids, or modify alarm settings. It also houses a number of useful SEM management features.
