Analysis of campaigns over multiple programs simultaneously

Analysis of campaigns over multiple programs simultaneously

The key success to monetize traffic on your websites is efficiency. For its improvement you need to constantly track traffic stats, revenues and expenses, in case you buy traffic. To eliminate loss-making activities and to support the profitable ones you need detailed statistics, where you can identify such activities and their results.

One way of simple detailed monitoring of statistics are campaigns. Campaigns are supported by many affiliate programs, advertising networks and so on. They allow detailed monitoring of stats even without using scripts on your sites, which makes them suitable not only for professionals, but for beginners as well.

Monitoring campaigns performance can be difficult when you use multiple sources and/or traffic targets within a single campaign. The campaign analysis in Nifty Stats helps to solve this problem.

But first let’s take a look at an example. This is how program statistics with enabled campaign downloads look like in the standard view of Nifty Stats, if you already use campaigns:

Program view

We can see the various programs and after clicking on the details we can see the results of campaigns under each program.

It is necessary for most programs to set download per campaigns at the properties window of the program under the option “Download type”, in order for Nifty Stats to download statistics by campaigns. It’s possible that for some programs this feature isn’t available yet, because the programs in the Nifty Stats database are constantly changing. Don’t hesitate to contact us in case you need campaign statistics for a program which does supports it, but it’s not already available in Nifty Stats.

In the new version of Nifty Stats a new toolbar called “Analyze” appeared. The basic choice is “Analyze: Programs”, which turns on the standard list of programs, which were used in the previous version of Nifty Stats. By turning on “Analyze: Campaigns” you will get an overall view of all campaigns performances for the selected period.

You can sort the list of campaigns by any parameter to find the most effective and the worst performing campaigns. If you have campaigns with the same name across multiple programs, then the statistics for these campaigns will be added together from every program, where it is used. You can easily find out which campaigns are profitable or which ones are making loss, if you are buying and selling traffic under one campaign. In this case you don’t even need to own a website, or a landing page, you can track the results of direct links (purchased traffic sent directly to your referral URLs).

The following picture illustrates the situation:
Campaign view
The most revenue for the selected period (“This month”) has a campaign called “camp 1”. The campaign with the largest loss is called “3d movies”. After clicking the details we can see that traffic for this campaign was purchased at “Bing Ads” and “Google AdWords”, and the traffic was sent to “Example Program”, where no revenue was recorded, thus making a loss that we have just indentified only with a few clicks, so we can immediately respond to the incurred problem.

For campaigns you can see not only the overall results for a selected period, but the daily, monthly etc. charts and tables as well, as you are already used to during program analysis. You can also simultaneously compare campaign results for two selected periods, the same way as for program results using the familiar “Compare to” toolbar visible on the screenshot.

During campaign analysis when one of the group (Group) is enabled then only the programs which are member of that selected group are considered. This gives you an other option for detailed analysis of campaigns, so for example you can find out which type of affiliate programs work best within a campaign, when you have affiliate programs divided into groups according to arbitrary criteria.

Event Notes – A New Function in Nifty Stats

Event Notes – A New Function in Nifty Stats

We included a great new function in Nifty Stats, EVENT NOTES. Event Notes will give you a complete overview of your earnings and expenses over each time period. Event Notes allows you to enter your personal notes next to graphs and see the different payment situations with your commentary. If, for example, you buy traffic in a given period, you can attach a note saying “Bought traffic between April 1, 2014 and April 15, 2014”, and watch how this traffic converts into sales. Or you can note down how the affiliate program you started to promote is converting into sales. You can add descriptions to impressions, raw hits, sales, rebills, refunds, chargebacks, CTR, etc. You can also define time periods as you want and highlight event notes in color! This function is sure to find broad use.

Your income is under control. Put any description under the graph to get perfect overview of which traffic, and from whom, best converts to sales.

Event Notes

 

Your expenses under control. Event notes allow you to mark the advertising network where you buy your advertising and see your expenses in real time.

You see how little you need to make your business more transparent – you can add other event notes, like a domain sale, traffic purchase, marketing campaign launch and many more.

Have full control over your sales statistics!

Nifty Stats can present your statistics from CCBill accounts as graphs and clear analyses!

You need to extract as much information from CCBill as you can. It is the only way to know what is happening with your business.

CCBill is a very popular and solid payment processor with many users who include not only affiliates but also operators of pay sites. That is the reason why CCBill was included in the Nifty Stats database and allows us to offer you the broadest range of statistics, even those that are not provided by CCBill itself. Where the CCBill interface falls short is graphical analysis of your data permitting you to immediately visualize your sales. Nifty Stats, on the other hand, displays within a single working window all the data you need to see and even allows you to compare different time periods. We are going to show everything that Nifty Stats can analyze.

Knowing your numbers is the basis of success!

Do you know what your sales are? Which programs and pay sites are productive and which are not? Which times were rich and which were poor? Which campaigns earned most or brought you most users? All this represents critical information – if you do not have it, your business can not develop successfully. Nifty Stats will give you all the necessary data and information!So what do statistics from CCBill look like in Nifty Stats?

Install Nifty Stats as a fully functional 30-day version. Open Nifty Stats and select CCBill from the database of affiliate programs. Fill in your login data and click on Nifty Stats > Start Downloading of Statistics in the top menu. The statistics from CCBill will immediately begin loading into Nifty Stats. Here you have to be careful to choose the right starting date – if you select 2000 you will be downloading statistics for the whole 13 years, a task that might take weeks to complete. Therefore, select a period not longer than 2 years.

As soon as the statistics from CCBill finish downloading into Nifty Stats you will see a complete overview of your total income, rebills, sales, refunds, chargebacks, and more. You will also immediately see the pay sites and affiliate programs registered with your account. You do not need to set up anything or enter any additional data, everything is set up automatically.

Graphical sales analysis ( including sales, rebills, chargebacks, refunds )

Once the statistics have downloaded you are immediately shown a graphical representation of sales, rebills, chargebacks, refunds and other information on a daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis, or for the whole period of your registration with CCBill. Nifty Stats will interpret the statistics from your CCBill account. We will now show you a bar graph which gives you perfect overview of your business. See the picture which shows the sales trend for one pay site. Note how membership sales changed between weeks – some weeks were better and some were leaner. You can work with this data and cover the weaker periods with heavier advertising or launch promotion deals for members and possibly also affiliate webmasters, and much more.

Whether your CCBill account is linked to pay sites or affiliate programs, you can compare their performance. Just select two or more programs in the working window of Nifty Stats and you get a perfect graphical analysis. You can select from among several types of graph which can be switched as needed.
