Hello everyone, I am actually quite new to the detailed tracking topic but found out its value fast. However after reaching myself the tech side of conversion tracking I asked myself. I now use BeMob (similar to Voluum) to track conversions. You have you traffic source, your affiliate network and maybe a landing page in between. All nice and well. But this only shows CTR and CR. However if I want to know user behavior (bounce rate, micro cr such as surveys or newsletter sign up) I normally would use Google Analytics. However I would not know how to track conversions in affiliate network with Google analytics. And I do not know how to combine conversion and behavior data sets or even analyse them combined in meaningful way. Any help here? Thanks in advance.
The only way you would be able to see micro conversions and behavior beyond conversion tracking (and the other interactions) is if the merchant (for which the offer you are promoting) offers 3rd party S2S (or postback) tracking of *that data* (email signups, bounce rate, trial signups, upgrades, etc.) to the affiliate network and your internal tracking of choice (Voluum, BeMob, GA) supports it as well.
The unfortunate reality here is the willingness of most merchants to share data and steps to partners (and the tools they use) that would help you optimize upstream promotions to give them better qualified customers.
If you'd like to chat about this or construct some possible work arounds - feel free to schedule a call.
Thanks and good luck!
