Link Manager: How to use Click-to-Post

By June 13, 2019 July 16th, 2019 Support-Earnware

The Earnware Link Manager can create a special redirect link that can send a contact record to your Earnware Contact Manager with a single click. A common use-case is to buy realtime one-click leads from a fellow publisher — or sell and distribute leads on a cost-per-lead basis.

To start, you’ll need access to the Earnware Links Manager. If you don’t see the option on the left bar of your Earnware account, contact support for access.

  1. Create a link redirect that can be used on any email campaign to send clickers back to your Earnware account.
  2. In the Target Redirect settings, cut and paste the example link below.
  3. Replace the userId with your Earnware account user ID. You can find it in the URL while logged into your Earnware account.
  4. Set the utm_placement and the utm_campaign variables with your own unique values.
  5. The utm values you set will be appended to each contact record posted to your Earnware Contact Manager.
  6. You can trigger an Earnware workflow by filtering for the utm values you set.
  7. Follow the remaining settings below.

EXTERNAL LINK USAGE

  2. Replace your link, your ESP’s email merge variable, and the successURL which will redirect traffic to your desired location.
