How Your Agency Can Use Prosper202 To Provide Real-Time Campaign Metrics To Your Clients
By Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, View comments

Prosper202 can now be used to give your clients and publishers access to real-time campaign metrics, without giving anyone full access to the rest of your confidential stats.

This is useful if you are:
  • An agency working with clients and need a way to have them see campaign performance in real-time.
  • A product owner or merchant looking for a simple way to allow 3rd parties to drive traffic and sales to your products and services.
  • An advertiser working with an affiliate network, or CPA network, and you are looking for better tracking and reporting than you can get from Google analytics.

Fast and simple setup

Assuming you have an offer already setup and running with your own traffic, here is how simple it is to setup Prosper202 to track sales for a new publisher or client.

You can also give them a login where they can view their clicks and conversions in real-time without disclosing your private click and conversion data.

 

To access this new functionality, simply upgrade to Prosper202 1.9.49 or higher.

Prosper202 1.9.46 Solves Your Most Frustrating Affiliate Challenges
By Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, View comments

There are many frustrating aspects to affiliate marketing. From finding offers, to scaling and more. But some of the unnecessary frustrations are mainly related to human errors or lack of knowledge when it comes to the whole offer setup process in your tracking ClickServer like Prosper202.

For example, to be able to track conversion using postbacks, you need to format your affiliate link to pass the Prosper202 subid into your network's subid parameters.

I get 50 times more support tickets for this one unavoidable hair pulling frustrating task than I do all other support tickets combined. Even the biggest super affiliates get stumped.

Now Prosper202 1.9.46 Automatically Sets Up Your Affiliate Links for full End-To End Tracking

With the help of your new personal AI assistant in Prosper202 1.946, you will never have to manually figure you where that [[subid]] token goes ever again:

Look at how easily Bot202 Link Assist™ turns potential hours or days of frustration, into a simple 1 second copy and paste task

Answers to questions you may be have about the new Prosper202 Self-Hosted ClickServer

Q: Wow this is awesome, are you for real?
A: As real as real can get. Yes, after being taken offline since July 2016, Prosper202 Self-Hosted is now ready for download.

Q: Is it free?
A: Not this version, but it's priced fairly and within reach of most marketers

Q: Ok, so how much is it going to cost?
A: This is where I'll be slick and say, Prosper202 doesn't cost, it pays :) But seriously, the price is just $99 a month, or $3.30 a day. This comes with unlimited software updates, and unlimited installs. This means you can install Prosper202 on as many of your domains as you want for no extra cost. Later on, we will be launching an innovative new feature (aka: something that makes you more money and  makes your life easier) that will make you fully understand why we offer unlimited installs without paying extra. After the first year, you can continue to subscribe to support and updates. If you decide not to, you software will continue to work.

Q: Dude that's such a steal at only $3.30 a day! What's the catch?
A: There's no catch. You are getting the same quality software that people like you use to make millions in commissions every month.
  • You get an unlimited install license.
  • Professional live support.
  • Full unlimited source code to create your own customizations.
  • Free Training Videos to improve your marketing skills and much more.
But because I keep costs low, I can pass on huge savings to you. For instance, Bot202 answers a ton of support questions, and will be answering more over time, that allows me to not have to hire a whole team of support reps. Also thanks to the fact that you are so awesome and tell others about Prosper202, I don't have to spend money on advertising to get new customers, occasionally I'll still run ads to test out stuff, but over all, my ad spend is $0. Crazy eh? A tracking software for paid advertisers that doesn't do paid advertising.

Q: Does the software stop working if I cancel my subscription?
A: Absolutely not! You paid for it, so why should it ever stop working? That means once you buy the software, you can continue to use it forever. After you cancel free updates will end. So the version that you have is the one you will be stuck on. You can subscribe to get new updates and support at any time.

Q: Is the source code encrypted?
A: No, unlike other self-hosted tracking software, the source code for Prosper202 is completely open. So you can build upon it easily. BUT, this is not Free Open Source Software. It's paid software with the source code open for viewing and customization.

Q: Will you have free trials or demos?
A: No, not for now, most of you already have Prosper202 and know what you are getting. For everyone else, there will be a live demo available shortly.

Q: What are the server requirements?
A: Due to the new codebase, and road map for the future, Prosper202 1.9.43 needs a more modern server stack. The ideal specs are PHP 7+, memcached, and MySQL 5.6 or higher. I understand that some hosting providers will not be able to install and run the new Prosper202, so I've been talking with Tyler and his team over at BeyondHosting to make sure you have everything you need to run the new Prosper202 smoothly. They have been optimizing Prosper202 servers for almost 7 years, so they are experts in supporting Prosper202 and do it better than any other hosting provider. If possible just host with them.

Q: You are the best!
A: Thanks, I think you are the best too! Thanks for your business and support for all these years. I appreciate you, and look forward to many long years of doing business together.
