What is Smartlink?
Currently, publishers have a variety of affiliate tools at their disposal, which enable them to promote their offers. One of them is a smartlink. Why is it called that.
A smartlink matches the offer displayed on the screen to a specific end user. As a result, the presented content is adapted to the user's device, country and so on, which increases the likelihood that they will perform the action intended by the publisher. Therefore, a smartlink is a tool that significantly facilitates promotion. Let's take a closer look at how it works and what benefits come from using smartlinks in affiliate marketing.
How does Smartlink work?
A smartlink is a hyperlink that combines multiple affiliate programs within a single link. Depending on various user parameters, it intelligently selects the best program, which is then displayed to the user.
The easiest way to illustrate how a smartlink works is to use a real-life example. Each of us clicks countless links in our browser every day - some use Chrome, while others use, for example, Safari. Here, an important aspect from the perspective of smartlink operation comes into play. Firstly, the smartlink takes into account the specific browser that the user is using, as well as the browser's language version. Additionally, the smartlink considers the GEO location and IP address of the user. Finally, it even has information about details such as the type of device being used, whether it's mobile or desktop, and even the screen resolution, among many other technical parameters. In other words, the smartlink perfectly profiles the user, recognizes various parameters, and ultimately presents them with relevant, tailored content.
Benefits of using smartlinks
Now that you understand the basic mechanism of smartlinks, it's worth taking a closer look at their advantages.
The most important benefit is the personalization and customization of content to specific users. The more personalized the message reaches the user, the greater the chance of their interest and lead generation. It's worth noting that in MyLead, smartlinks are ready-to-use campaigns. A specific smartlink campaign is either directed to users from around the world (GLOBAL) or intended for people from a specific group of countries. Therefore, the publisher has a ready-made tool that makes it easier for them to promote offers worldwide. Additionally, as mentioned before, smartlinks analyze many technical parameters such as location or device used, beyond language. Publishers don't have to worry about adjusting the link, which saves time and increases the likelihood that the user will perform the intended action. Smartlink campaigns are an excellent option for novice publishers. There's no need to conduct A/B tests on them, and the presented offer for a specific customer is displayed and adjusted automatically.

FAQ - frequently asked questions
Do you have any questions about smartlinks? Here are the ones that we come across most often. Be sure to double check if your question is answered here before contacting Support.
Here are some of them:
- I have recorded 25 visits, but I don't see any leads. Why?
It all depends on the quality of the traffic you are promoting. You may not be reaching users who are actually interested in the offer you are promoting. It all depends on which channels you promote your link on and which audiences it reaches. We recommend taking a closer look and analyzing the chosen method of promotion, and in case of questions and problems, we recommend contacting our support or mentors who will help analyze your actions and choose a better course of action.
- Users clicked on my link but I didn't receive commission. What should I do?
The user's task is not just to click on the link, but also to take a specific action. In the case of dating smartlinks, this may include creating an account on the dating site, confirming their email address, completing their profile, and purchasing a subscription. To receive a commission, all conditions specified in the program must be met.
- Users register and confirm their email, but the commission does not even appear in the pending section. Why am I not being credited with a commission, even though users have done everything correctly?
First and foremost, try to make sure that the user has actually performed the action you intended. Look at the actions that need to be taken in order for the commission to be credited. Often, in addition to registration and email confirmation, the user must take additional actions for you to receive a commission.
It's worth mentioning that you can monitor smartlink statistics on a specified GEO after reaching a minimum of 3000 visits. After reaching this threshold, we encourage you to regularly check and optimize your traffic for the GEO where you achieved the highest number of conversions.
- I promote smartlinks. Why did I receive a lead with a value of 0 USD?
It's possible that the lead was acquired from the wrong location (i.e. different than required by the advertiser) or the customer did not perform the entire required action (e.g. registered on the site but did not actively use it or did not take further action). In addition, the amount you will receive for your lead may differ due to currency conversion and any applicable commissions.
We do not rule out the possibility of technical problems, but these are rare cases. If you believe that the problem is technical in nature, please contact support and describe your situation in detail, providing the name of the campaign.
- I promote a campaign for 2 days, I have 200 visits and only 1 conversion. Why?
The problem may lie in the promotion method, the source of traffic, i.e. the place where the offer is promoted or the users you are reaching. It's worth analyzing whether the people who come across your content are actually interested in this type of offer.
- I promote a smartlink and received a different amount for each lead, why?
This situation is natural and should be taken into account. Rates specified in smartlink-type campaigns are presented in so-called "ranges" - from the lowest amount up to the highest possible amount that can be obtained for one lead. The amount of rates varies depending on the advertiser and the country in which the campaign applies.
