Since we introduced Choice Pages back in 2016, we’ve been strong advocates for diversifying your affiliate revenue and providing consumers with multiple purchasing options.
However, while providing a multi-retailer approach for consumers is a definite win/win for both you and your audience, being an affiliate with multiple affiliate programs can sometimes cause a lot of frustration, as it means having to log in to each unique affiliate dashboard if you want to track your earnings.
For a long time, this meant managing passwords, navigating extra browser tabs, or even forgetting which dashboard you need to log into for each respective program. These challenges have often been a sticking point for new affiliates, who dread the extra work that managing and optimizing multiple affiliate programs entails.
That said, this doesn’t have to be such a painful experience now, thanks to a new tool that is quickly becoming one of our favorites – Afflytics!
What is Afflytics?
Afflytics is an affiliate marketing dashboard management tool that helps bridge the reporting gap, letting you track your affiliate income from multiple sources by connecting all of your affiliate accounts and affiliate networks in one place.
It’s not just an aggregator though – with Afflytics’ analytics dashboard, you also get a clear picture of what’s happening across your connected affiliate networks, with helpful insights and KPIs to help you better understand your sales data.
What Makes Afflytics Great
Afflytics seems like a simple tool on the surface, but we were pleasantly surprised to see just how robust it is! With support for tons of affiliate networks, a simple and easy-to-navigate UI, and thoughtful organization features, it’s clear Afflytics was built by a team who understands the frustration affiliates face. Below are some of the features we think you’ll appreciate.
Support For Major Affiliate Networks
One thing we love about Afflytics is their ever-growing support for affiliate networks – with over 30+ currently supported networks, both big, medium, and small, it’s quick and easy to start connecting the networks you’re currently using.
If you’re a Geniuslink client, Afflytics already includes support for almost all of the programs we do, which makes it a fantastic tool for Geniuslink clients who are looking for a way to track sales across all the products being promoted.
Here’s a list of the major networks Afflytics currently supports:
- Commission Junction
- Impact Radius
- Has Offers
- Rakuten LinkShare
- Sovrn Commerce (VigLink)
- Post Affiliate Pro
- Ebay Partner Network
- Commission Factory
- HasOffers by TUNE
- Affiliate Future
- WP Affiliate
Afflytics is also working hard to continue expanding support for as many additional affiliate networks as possible. They even include a “make a request” button if you don’t see support for a network you’re currently using!
You may notice that some of the major players are not currently listed – Unfortunately, due to policies about sharing affiliate data with 3rd parties, Afflytics may not be able to add support for some networks, such as Amazon Associates.
Near Real-Time Sales Reports
Depending on your chosen plan, you can get commission data updates from an hourly to a daily basis – if you’re launching a new campaign or releasing a new video, getting hourly updates is a great way to see how it’s trending early on – letting you make informed decisions faster (though it’s important to note that Afflytics is still reliant on the reporting cadence of the affiliate network).
KPI Metrics and Insights
Revenue is just one of many KPIs (key performance indicators) you may be interested in tracking, but some KPIs can be a pain to set up when you have multiple accounts to compare. With Afflytics, you don’t need to rely on a giant spreadsheet to see how each program is performing. Afflytics provides convenient dashboards that allow you to directly compare:
- Commission Revenue
- Total Sales
- Avg. Commissions
- Total Advertisers
- Advertiser Sales
- Highest Commission
- Projected Annual Revenue
- Unique Products Sold
Organize Your Data by Website
Afflytics also allows you to organize your connected affiliate networks under different websites – if you own multiple sites, or manage both a website and a YouTube channel, this is a great way to compare performance without extra hassle.
A Generous Free Plan, and Paid Plans that Scale With You
Afflytics currently offers five different plans – differing primarily on monthly commission, update rate, and historical data limits, which means Afflytics’ pricing scales with you. If you’re new to affiliate marketing, or just want to give Afflytics a test, the free plan is a seriously generous offering that provides a ton of value, so definitely consider signing up for an account here!
Fantastic Customer Support
When we first started using Afflytics, we had some minor issues with our connection to Sovrn Commerce – when we brought this to the attention of their team, Austin, the founder of Afflytics was quick to respond to our issue, and provided us with direct and responsive support for troubleshooting the connection. Rest assured that if you have any questions or concerns while using the service, Austin and his team have your back.
We think Afflytics is a must-have if you want to get more serious about streamlining your affiliate marketing efforts and have adopted a multi-retailer approach!
If you have multiple sites or content channels with revenue streams from different networks, and are struggling to stay organized (or just hate managing spreadsheets) then Afflytics is a fantastic way to stay organized and get quick insights into your affiliate sales reports!
