How Often do you Check Your Affiliate Statistics?

Written by David McKenzie

Once a month? Maybe once a week?

You should be checking your affiliate statistics at least 5 times a week. If you takerepparttar weekend off, then make sure you check them each Monday through Friday. (What you want to be checking are number of hits, number of sales and number of affiliates signed up inrepparttar 102574 2nd tier.)


Here are 3 reasons you need to constantly check your affiliate statistics:

1. Keep Track of Hits

You want to see if there is a sudden rise or drop in number of hits each day as this can be a good pointer to either a good or bad affiliate marketing campaign you are running. Hits lead directly to sales so a jump in hits should mean a jump in sales.

2. Keep Track of Sales

Did that latest ezine ad you ran lead directly to increased sales? By not checking your statistics regularly you’ll never know. By logging in to your affiliate statistics page a number of times a week you will have a better idea of which affiliate marketing techniques are leading to sales.

Once you know a particular technique is responsible for increased sales then you can double or triple your marketing efforts with this technique.
