Affiliate stats screen
A good idea is to send a welcome message to all your referrals, for example with instructions on what you want them to do or just a personal greeting.
At the top of the Affiliates section, you can find your affiliate link.
Switch to the Stats tab to see your all-time summary of your earnings. Udimi automatically collects all stats for your link.
Below the summary, you’ll see a detailed graph. Click on dates at the top right corner to change the period.
If you are paying for affiliate traffic, just click the $0.00 link and add the amount you paid for advertising. The system will automatically calculate ROI (Return of Investment) for you.
To see your referrals of each type, click the corresponding links in the summary box.
Hardcoded referrals – referrals that make you money forever and on every solo ad order. Their account is connected to yours, so you will get commissions even if this person clears cookies, changes the computer, and moves to another country or planet.
Cookied referrals – referrals who came to Udimi via your link, but didn’t buy yet. Be sure to convince them to buy as quickly as possible, because cookied referrals will become Hardcoded after they make their first order on Udimi.
Gone – These members were on your list of cookied referrals, but purchased their first solo via another affiliate’s link and were hardcoded into another account as a result. This is why it is super important to convince your referrals in buying a solo.
Cookies are not reliable. If your referral has strict privacy settings or simply cleans cookies, you will get nothing. This is how it works everywhere, but we decided to go one step further to secure your commissions.
Right after your referral buys a solo, your affiliate information is hardcoded into the buyer's account. From that moment, it doesn’t matter whether your buyer has cookies enabled or not. You will get 15% on the order total even if your referral buys a solo in 10 years and from another computer.
IMPORTANT: If your referral doesn’t buy and later another Udimi affiliate will convince this referral to buy via his own affiliate link, you’ll lose this referral. Why so? Because who gets the sale, gets the money. Udimi is about selling solo ads, not just referring people, so be sure to convince your referrals to buy a solo. That way your referrals will be hardcoded into your account and will bring you commissions for life, even if they clear cookies and change computers.
Example: Mike registered via John’s affiliate link, but didn’t buy. Later Mike clicked Bill’s link and then bought a solo. After that Mike clicked John’s affiliate link again and bought a second solo.
Result: John will lose the referral. Bill will get all commissions for both orders and continue to get new commissions for all Mike’s future orders. All other affiliate links will not affect Bill, because his affiliate info has now been hardcoded into Mike’s account.
To get pre-made banners or Udimi logos, use menu links at the top. The logo generator is located under the Tools tab. All banners already have HTML code with your affiliate id included, so you can simply copy/paste them into your site or blog.
If you are using an ad blocker, be sure to turn it off when visiting the banners page, because it can block content and you won’t see anything.
If your referral clicks your affiliate link and scrolls to the bottom of the Udimi page, they will see your small photo and the “Special thanks to YourName” line at the very bottom, like this:
This means the system recognizes your affiliate link and referral commissions will be credited to your account.
