The importance of landing pages and more specifically finding which one’s work the best for you is crucial for many affiliates. When we were developing our new site that launched last month, we made sure to keep this is mind. Deciding which new features we wanted to add to the updated affiliate interface was dependent on what we thought would actually assist affiliates. We knew providing more options for campaigns with multiple landing pages would do that. We thought we’d talk a little more about each one specifically, how to use it, and why it’s an improvement.
Customizable Landing Page Tracking Links
This can be extremely useful for the affiliate because often when campaigns have multiple landing pages, it’s because each LP is actually angled differently. A strict sales oriented landing page is quite different than one that utilizes an advertorial approach. You the affiliate may also be choosing to use a custom landing page, which in that case a ‘direct to checkout’ style LP is the best option. There’s pages with just basic text, and there's pages with video content, and this feature aims capitalizes on this diversity, allowing you to take advantage of campaigns with multiple LP’s by testing and optimizing your strategy like never before.
The below screenshot shows you the selection page you'll be directed to after choosing your traffic source on a campaign's page.
Individual Landing Page Reporting
Due to the previous feature we just discussed, you’re now able to also look at how well each landing page is doing in your promotion. This includes clicks, leads, clickthrough rate, earnings and EPC for each indivudal LP. Instead of just viewing your earnings for a specific offer, you’re now able to see how those earnings are split across the respective landing pages if you’ve decided to try running more than one.
This feature provides you with more insight in to what works better for your specific strategy or perhaps your traffic method. This was not capable in the old version of the site and it’s something that we really wanted to provide in the re-design.
Below you'll see how to use this new feature.
These two features combined provide affiliates with extra tools and information that are intended to help them decide what works best, hopefully leading to an eventual earnings increase. Optimization is a monumental part of affiliate marketing, and these additions are aim to do that.
The Whistle Pet Tracking DeviceWhistle Pet Tracking Device is one of those products that was created to solve a specific problem, and when the product is able to do just that, you can expect success to follow soon after. This campaign allows for users to purchase that device, and pays you the affiliate $36 for each sale that is converted.
The Whistle is a GPS Pet Tracker that is attached to the collar of an owner’s pet. The device is accompanied by a mobile app in which users can track their pet’s location, assisting in tracking down any pet that may wander or become lost. In addition to the GPS tracking capabilities, the app also allows for smart activity monitoring. This means users can stay on top of their pets sleeping habits, physical activity, and overall health. Whistle claims to be the only device that offers both tracking and monitoring to the extent that they do.
The Whistle has been featured in a number of mainstream news media such as Wired, USA Today, TechCrunch, Good Morning America, and BuzzFeed. This type of attention can go a long in way in establishing trust between the user and the product/campaign.
This campaign couldn’t be more perfect for any affiliates operating pet related blogs or websites, and targeted niche offers like this one tend to easily find success with that method.
Web, social, contextual, mobile, search, AND e-mail traffic are all allowed when promoting this offer, providing you with a wide range of freedom when it comes to promotional methods.

PointClub PointClub is emerging as one of our better performing survey rewards campaigns, offering users rewards in return for their opinions. The service is entirely free, and members aren't required to provide any credit card or financial related information, ensuring that they are never taken advantage of or charged hidden fees. This can go a long way in establishing trust between the user and this campaign. They truly have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
PointClub members are asked to complete targeted surveys that relate to their interests and demographics. For doing so, they'll be rewarded primarily with cash or gift cards. Affiliates are paid out $1.50 for every user who signs up and confirms through their e-mail. For a free sign-up that requires no CC information and rewards you, there's potential for conversions at that rate to add up quickly.
There is potential for a cap increase once quality has been established. If you get to that point you can contact your Affiliate Manager to inquire about an increase.
After a lot of brainstorming, hard work, and feedback over the last year, we're beyond proud and elated to finally announce the launch of the NEW MaxBounty!
By ‘The New MaxBounty' we mean a complete front to back redesign of our website. This includes both pre-login pages, and the affiliate dashboard user interface that all MaxBounty affiliates have access to. Not only does this mean a visual overhaul of the interface, but we optimized and added features to ensure you have as many tools as possible to help you promote campaigns successfully.
We thought we’d go over a few of the new features you’ll come across if you’re an affiliate with us, or if you’re planning on becoming one in the near future (which we highly suggest). Perhaps seeing what we have in store may even increase your desire to work with us. We’ve also provided some screenshots with each feature so that you can follow along and know where each one is located.
Upon logging in to MaxBounty, you’ll quickly notice a number of new interface elements to the affiliate dashboard. Here you’ll see information regarding your Affiliate Manager, a quick shot of your recent earnings, various campaign lists, as well as news and updates to the right. The new dashboard is designed to provide you with the important information that you require the quickest, to make sure your time spent in the network is done so as efficiently as possible.
Campaign Categorization and Browsing
You’ll be able to sort, search, and find the optimal campaign you’re looking for easier than ever with our new campaign browsing system. Whether you’re searching for new campaigns, top converters, or an offer you’ve recently viewed, we've made sure you'll find it quickly. Every offer also has its own landing page screenshot automatically displayed, giving you a better preview of the campaign without even having to click on it.
In Depth Reporting
We’ve revamped the way you see your stats and earnings, allowing you to view more information to give you a better idea of how well your campaigns are doing. The visual overhaul means you'll also be able to analyze this information more quickly than in the previous version. Additional features such as the ability to provide 5 pieces of user sub-id instead of only 2, means you'll be able to understand and target your audience like never before.
Below you'll see a graph that will automatically compare your earnings for this week to last week, with additional sort-able stats for each campaign listed below that.
Clicking on the 'Landing Page' option to the right of the campaign as seen below, will bring you to another new feature we've added.
For campaigns with multiple landing pages, you'll now be able to see how well each specific landing page is converting. We know how important testing and optimization is when running any campaign, so this feature was implemented to provide you with another way to do just that.
Customizable Tracking Links
This new feature will allow you to customize your tracking link depending on the specific landing page you select for an offer. This gives you the affiliate more freedom to choose between which style of creative you'd like users to be tracked and directed to.
Here you'll able to request specific campaigns that you'd like to see at MaxBounty. Are you running a campaign somewhere else but would prefer to do so with us? Let us know what it is and we'll do whatever we can to make it available in our network. This simple feature will allow us to improve our offer base while providing you with more of what you're looking for.
Built in News and Updates
Being notified of campaign information, promotion and event updates, industry news, and other MaxBounty related tidbits will now require no navigation outside of the dashboard. This area is in theory our new blog, but is designed to deliver you that same useful information in a quicker and more digestible format. If there's an important promotion going on at MaxBounty that could earn you bonuses or prizes, you can find it all within our 'News' section, located on the left side panel of the dashboard.
There's a lot of other new components to the site that you'll inevitably come across as you get used to the new design. Hopefully this post provides a bit of insight on some of the ones we think are the most important, and where you can find them.
To say that we're excited to finally have all of our affiliates using the new interface would be an understatement. Hopefully you quickly become just as excited once you take a look around and see all the new features that are aimed to improve your experience with us.
Here's to the NEW MaxBounty!
