How To Split Test Affiliate Offers with LinkTrackr

One of the coolest features of LinkTrackr is its ability to split test affiliate offers. This is one of the keys to finding successful campaigns. Most new affiliate marketers will just take an offer, spend money promoting it and hope it makes a profit. This is a pretty sure fire way to lose money with affiliate marketing.

All affiliate networks offer multiple offers in the same niche. How do you choose the best one? With LinkTrackr, You don’t have to. You can run them all to find the ones that are profitable.

Throw Everything On The Ceiling and See What Sticks

Basically, what we’re doing is split testing a bunch of offers to find the ones that are profitable. This takes the guess work out of the equation. Here’s how to do it.

Log into your affiliate network and choose a bunch of offers from a niche you’re interested in promoting. For this example, we’re looking at some dating offers from Neverblue Ads.

Neverblue has over 100 dating offers to choose from. The odds of you picking a winner without split testing is close to zero. What you do is find some offers that catch your fancy and add them to LinkTrackr Split Tester.

You can add as many offers as you want and divide the traffic anyway you want. I start off by giving every offer equal weight. Then as the results come in, I will shift the traffic to the offers that are profitable and remove the unprofitable ones.

You can make tracking easier by using the LinkTrackr conversion tracking. You’ll have to talk to your affiliate manager to see if she can add the conversion tracking codes to the final landing page. This will allow you to see your ROI right from the LinkTrackr control panel. You’ll be able to see instantly which offers are making money and which offers to kill.

What you end up with is one LinkTrackr URL that divides the traffic into multiple affiliate offers that you can track in real time. Using this method, it shouldn’t take more than a day or two to find the winning offers in whatever niche you’re operating in.

Test Out LinkTrackr for Free

LinkTrackr offers multiple plans. They range from free to the $27 per month Xtreme plan. The free plan allows you to create ten tracking links using the default LinkTrackr URL. If you want your own custom URL, you’ll have to upgrade to one of the paid plans. However, the free plan is a good way to test out the service. You can use the free plan for one full year.

The basic paid LinkTrackr plan costs $9 per month and allows 100 tracking links and up to 10,000 clicks per month. That should be good enough to get started with, but you can also try the Pro or Xtreme plans if you already have many affiliate links to cloak and track. You can upgrade or downgrade your account at any time, so you can always start small and upgrade as needed.

To try LinkTrackr, simply go and create your free account. If you’re signing up for any of the paid plans, then be sure to use the coupon code JOHNCHOW to get 20% off.

  1. Hey John,

    I remember you mentioning Link Trackr before but this post gives more information.

    Link Trackr is definitely very useful. It’s for more advanced marketers I think. How long have you used it? I’ll consider using it very strongly when the time comes for me.

    Are they really spelling it without the e? Why not leave out all the vowels, I wonder. LnkTrckr wouldn’t look that bad.

    1. John Chow says:

      I’ve been using it since it came out.

      1. Thanks for the reply John.

        It must really be good then.

        Now I have to find out when it came out to really know how long you’ve been using it.

        1. The date of when Link Trackr came out doesn’t seem to show in search engines.

          Do you mind telling me when that was John ?

          1. John Chow says:

            LinkTrack came out around October of 2010. I was a beta tester for it.

    2. It might be worth having just to split test offers. Cool!

      1. PPC Ian says:

        That’s for sure. Having a tool like this is much easier than running multiple ads and splitting traffic within your search engine account.

  2. thanks for this. Ive to try linktrack for sure.

    1. Thank you John,

      That’s fairly recently. So the first time I heard you mention them could have easily been at that time.

      I looked at their prices and they are very reasonable. With your beautiful discount it will be even better. Is the discount going to be a fixed recurring one or is it just for the first month or is it limited to a specific time length after which they will not give it on an ongoing basis?

      This is quite important for me to know and I think all the other readers would appreciate knowing that as well.

      1. John Chow says:

        The discount is recurring. You get it for the life of your account.

        1. PPC Ian says:

          Extremely helpful, thanks Email List Building and John. The fact that the discount is recurring makes this an amazing deal! 🙂

        2. Sergio Felix says:

          This was the exact answer I was looking for, thanks!

  5. $27 a month for link tracking. That seems a little steep.

    1. Is that 20% off every month?

      1. John Chow says:

        Yes, it is. And $27 a month isn’t much when you compare it to what other split testing solution cost.

        1. Abhik says:

          That’s awesome!!
          But, I just paid for the whole year for the basic plan.

    2. Abhik says:
