What is trck.me?
Every serious online marketer needs tracking software to do ROI analysis. Without tracking you have no idea which of your efforts are productive. You cannot analyze your ROI (return on investment) without tracking. You also have no way to evaluate how much more effective your advertising could be.Remember that your ROI can be money or time. Trck.me can help make you a super affiliate to keep you making money online for years to come.
Don’t They Have Free Tracking Software?
Yes there are many free tracking software option available. Basically they fall into 2 separate categories. Some are completely free, while other companies offer a free version and different paid levels.
The completely free versions are good for newbies who are not sure if they are going to stay with internet marketing. It is also good for people with very limited funds. However, once you have started making money online, or decided to commit to being an online marketer, it is time to move on.
What are the draw backs of free tracking software?
The completely free products can and do “blacklist” certain URL’s. Although I do not know for sure why they blacklist certain URL’s, I know that it gives the URL and you a spam-my reputation. I have seen this happen with companies that have a sudden massive launch and the market is flooded with affiliates shortening the same URL over and over again. It can happen to a product that has gained it’s affiliates over time as well. The problem, for you, is that when a customer clicks on your link they will receive a big, red warning not to click! This means conversions plummet, your reputation is damaged, and since you have no way of knowing if or when this will happen, you may lose advertising investments.
Free Versions of paid tracking services limit usage. Most often you are limited either by how many tracking links you can use or by how long your track link remains active. When they are limited by activity, they either expire after a certain period of time or after a certain amount of clicks. Either way you can only use them for very short term projects.
What Are The Benefits Of Paid Tracking Software?
There are many benefits to a paid version. Most important is that you can keep all your tracking links in one place. I have researched many trackers and now use and highly recommend trck.me.
For only $9 a month you can track unlimited links and banners. Shortened links &/or banners can also be used as a url rotator, if you choose. This is a valuable asset to see where your best ROI comes from. You can track which splash page, squeeze page, or banner converts best. If you are evaluating your own pages and banners you can now take the most successful ones and make a new tracker. In this url rotator you will put; different variations of the best ad/banner, etc. The variations should be slight in each one. Now your ROI analysis will show you which versions improved your ROI and which did not.
Of course each track link will track which traffic sources are working best for you. You can easily toggle between today’s hits, hits over the past week, month or since you started using that link. This way you can make sure you utilize the traffic sources with the best ROI analysis.
With trck.me you can customize your links as well. Your track link automatically generate with a random numerical code. You can change the numbers to words that reflect the product you are advertising like this:
Once you have your custom track link, you can take it a step further by adding an ending. You can add many different endings to the same tracker. For Ex:
If you are sending emails with safelists or TAE’s you can track which email does best by adding an ending like this:
http://trck.me/KK10KChallenge/ changes to ==>>
(As you can see, when you click on these links, they all take you to the same URL/product.)
The sky is the limit. Whatever you want to track, you can!
If all this isn’t enough to convince you of how awesome trck.me is, you can also turn on an optional social media bar below!
Your visitors can click on the icon of their choice or hover over the share button for additional choices. They can even send an email with your site information to their friends, colleges, or even to themselves, to remind them to go back to your site.
Track.me has a professional version for $49/month or $490/year that gives you even more features. When you become a successful internet marketing, super affiliate this investment will be far outweighed by the increase in your ROI. While there is no free version, I do recommend beginners use this tool from the start if possible. This will have you organized from the get go, which will speed up your progress to your ultimate goals. Trck.me gives you more benefits than I have seen in any other tracking software for only $9/month.
