Affiliate Manager

Add Manual Leads in Affiliate Manager

Allowing manual leads to be created in an affiliate manager can be beneficial for several reasons:


Flexibility in Tracking Various Conversions:

Not all conversions are easily trackable through automated means. For instance, phone orders, offline purchases, or custom events might require manual entry to be accurately attributed to affiliates.


Handling Exceptions or Edge Cases:

In some cases, there might be unique circumstances where a lead or conversion doesn’t fit neatly into automated tracking systems. Allowing manual leads allows for flexibility in handling such exceptions.


Maintaining Trust with Affiliates

Affiliates may sometimes come across potential customers or leads that they refer through personal connections or offline interactions. Allowing manual leads helps maintain trust by ensuring that affiliates receive credit for their efforts, even in non-standard situations.


Ensuring Accuracy and Integrity

 Allowing manual leads enables you to have a more accurate representation of your affiliate program’s performance. This can be particularly important for reporting, analysis, and decision-making.


Supporting Offline Marketing Efforts

 If your affiliates engage in offline marketing activities like events, workshops, or seminars, they might acquire leads that aren’t easily trackable through online methods. Allowing manual leads accommodates this.


Facilitating New Affiliate Onboarding

When onboarding new affiliates, providing them with the ability to manually add leads can be helpful, especially if they have established networks or offline marketing strategies.


Handling Special Campaigns or Promotions

Special promotions or campaigns may involve unique tracking methods. Allowing manual leads ensures that affiliates can still receive credit for their efforts during these campaigns..

While manual lead entry provides flexibility and accommodates various scenarios, it’s important to implement appropriate checks and balances to prevent abuse or inaccuracies in the system. Additionally, it’s crucial to communicate clear guidelines to affiliates regarding when and how manual leads should be submitted.

How does it work creating manual leads work in Affiliate Manager?

  • Go to Marketing > Affiliate Manager
  • Go to Affiliate module
  • Go to the relevant affiliate where you want to add manual leads , there will be an option to add leads beside add coupon button.
  • Click on Add leads, there will be two options

 New Lead – User can select the campaign and add other basic details.

Import from contacts – importing a contact based on offline marketing searching by name.

Note – Manually added leads will not show any relevant purchase history records.



Sell your services with coupon codes (0-100% discounts)

Craft exclusive links for enticing, with coupon discounts/ freebies. As affiliates champion these links, every user sign-up brings a surge of commissions. It’s a win-win, turbocharging traffic and conversions while propelling both affiliate and service provider to new heights!

 Creating affiliate links for free services without requiring a coupon can have several advantages:

  1. No Barrier to Entry: Since there’s no cost associated with the service or product, potential customers don’t need to make any financial commitment, making it easier to attract leads.
  2. Higher Conversion Rates: Users are more likely to try out a free service, as it doesn’t require an upfront payment. This can lead to higher conversion rates compared to paid services.
  3. Wider Audience Appeal: Free services are generally more appealing to a broader audience, as they don’t have to invest money to try it out.
  4. Builds Trust and Credibility: Recommending a genuinely useful free service can build trust with your audience, as they see you’re providing value without any hidden costs.
  5. Encourages Trial and Adoption: Users are more likely to try out a service if it’s free, which can lead to higher adoption rates and potential upsell opportunities later.
  6. Easy to Promote: Promoting a free service is often easier, as it doesn’t require convincing potential customers to make a purchase.
  7. Less Friction in the Sales Funnel: Since there’s no payment involved, the process of converting a lead into a user is streamlined, resulting in a shorter sales cycle.
  8. Opportunity for Upselling: Once users see the value in the free service, they may be more inclined to upgrade or purchase related products or services in the future.
  9. Increased Brand Exposure: A well-promoted free service can lead to increased brand visibility, as satisfied users may refer others or share their positive experiences.
  10. Positive User Feedback and Reviews: Offering a valuable free service can lead to positive feedback and reviews, which can further enhance the reputation of the service and your affiliate efforts.
  11. Long-term Relationship Building: By introducing users to a free service, you have the opportunity to build a long-term relationship with them. This can lead to continued engagement and potential future affiliate sales.

Affiliate can set ZERO – 100% coupon for selling either at full price or as a free service.
