Geniuslink At Affiliate Summit West, 2018

http://affiliatesummit.com/events/asw18-main/

The Geniuslink team is excited to announce that we will be attending the Affiliate Summit West 2018 Conference in Las Vegas next week! This is our second time attending and we couldn’t be more excited

Our CEO, Jesse Lakes, presented last year and this year we’ll be demoing some of the unique capabilities that an intelligent link management platform provides.  

The demo will include how customizing the destination of a link based on geography, devices, language and date improves conversion rates, the ability to add retargeting pixels into links so you can still build a custom audience even when using social media or email, and how A/B testing from within links is one of the easiest ways to figure out what really works.

Stop by to catch our demo on Monday, January 8th in Concorde A, 3:30 pm – 3:50.

Once again, we can’t wait to chat with some of the top minds in affiliate marketing in person and learn more about some of the cutting edge techniques the world’s best affiliate marketers are using to maximize their success.

That includes YOU! If you’re planning on attending 2018’s Affiliate Summit West Conference between January 6th through the 9th, please contact us and we’d love to meet you in person and buy you a drink!

See you in Vegas!

Preserving URLs – On Click Support Now Available

 

We recently wrote about using short links with Amazon and addressed the topic of compliance when using linking tools with Amazon’s Associate program. While it’s entirely safe to use the Genius Link service with Amazon links, our new feature for the Amazon Link Engine and our Javascript snippet, “Preserve URLs until click time” gives clients another option in customizing the performance of their plugin and providing more transparency to shoppers. This new feature shows the original Amazon product link while shoppers hover their mouse over a link or copy the link. However, when the shopper actually clicks on the link, it’s converted and our automagic link localization and affiliation comes into play.   Read More
