Creating a Campaign in PeerClick

The following Getting Started guide provides an introduction to the PeerClick tracking platform. PeerClick tracks data generated by users that viewed and clicked on your ads to make the most of your campaigns. It allows to analyze and optimize your digital ad campaigns, create detailed reports, organize your work, and automatically optimize traffic distribution with built-in AI mechanisms. It is an essential tool for performance marketers who want to maximize their profits.

The image below visualizes how your business translates into setup in PeerClick:

When an advertisement is supposed to be seen by visitors, in a tracking language it means that you need to have a traffic source where this ad will be displayed. This is where your visitors come from. The process of promoting an offer starts in the traffic source and guides visitors along a campaign funnel. Thus, the campaign funnel needs to be created in advance. PeerClick is a place where you create such campaign funnels with either landing pages and offers or offers only. You can prepare offers on your own or get them from an affiliate network. In this guide you will see how all those elements work together.

BEFORE YOU START

Make sure that you have:

  • An active PeerClick account. If you do not have one, click the REGISTER TO PEERCLICK link at the top of this document to register a new account.
  • A traffic source for your first campaign. We recommend using Propellerads, that can be integrated with your PeerClick account. To learn more, go to the https://propellerads.com/ web page.
  • An offer to promote, supplied by affiliate networks.
  • Optionally, a landing page
