Written by Siddharth Jain

While running any affiliate marketing campaign, it is important to realize what all will be the key performance indicators or performance metrics that will actually help you understand how the customer/ user is interacting with your product & accordingly analyze the performance of your campaign.

As you are setting up the KPI’s of your affiliate marketing campaign, it is important to set up the goals & event tracking for your performance marketing campaign to get a clear picture as to the various touchpoints where the customer attributes a certain event which can lead to a possible sale or a possible customer acquisition. This in turn helps you set up the campaign’s payout structure and overall regulations to help you monitor the performance of every partner or any other traffic generating source.

Affiliate Marketing Goals

For Eg: The default  conversion for a CPI campaign is install but the advertiser wants to track attributions such as in app transaction & purchases then they will setup an additional goal of the transaction will be created on the campaign page.

Campaign goals are primarily used to to when the advertisers want to pay the publisher for the multiple events & KPI’s successfully achieved by the traffic sent in by the publisher. For eg:

Recurring sales or account upgrade after register or any transactions are done, etc.
