Get the bang for your buck: use your vene dash platform to the max!

It doesn’t matter whether you have been using vene dash for a long time and are a pro or you’re just starting out. The platform is built to track and manage so many different scenarios that if you’re not using some of the features on a regular basis you probably forget you have them.

Since you’re paying for them already, it is only logical to give you a quick run-down so that you know what you have in your plan.

Intelligent Smartlinks (Smartlinks became really smart with vene dash!)

Ad networks create hundreds of ad campaigns every day and as many links to direct traffic to. This task can very tedious and extremely time-consuming. By introducing Intelligent Smartlinks, vene dash allows you to create only one link for a variety of offers that will recognize your traffic and show each user the best performing offer. This is how you can always know you get maximum revenue for your advertising investments, thus increasing your ROI exponentially.

To set up a Smartlink, go to Publisher –> Select Publisher –> Smartlink –> Add Smartlink

You can also decide to redirect the offers set up with the Smartlink to a different Exit URL. In this case, you simply need to switch the toggle button as shown below.

Built-in fraud protection

One of the most challenging factors in affiliate marketing is knowing that some of your hard-earned revenues can go down the drain due to fraud. With vene dash you will no longer need to worry about that. Not only does it come with built-in fraud protection (powered by vene overwatch® – an industry-standard in fraud protection), you can also set up strategies that will flag or directly block fraudulent traffic even before it reaches your offers. This means your hard-earned money stays in your pocket and can strengthen your advertiser relationship and secure more budget.

The Fraud protection feature can be activated on two levels: General activation or Individual activation

Publisher portal

The Publisher portal is the interface where publishers can find all offers created within your vene dash platform. It has been designed to help you deepen your collaboration with your publishers.

Every vene dash customer is offered their own publisher interface where they can host offers themselves and let the publishers decide which offers they wish to run. Publishers can sort the offers by name, payout, performance or last added. In addition, there’s an “Analytics” part, giving your publishers an overview of the offers’ performance.

Here’s what your publishers will see when they login to their publisher portal:

  1. Dashboard – Overview of main KPI data
  2. Featured Offers – Offers you decide to give more visibility to
  3. Navigation bar – Different tabs/functions of the publisher interface

A little bit more on the “Featured Offers”.

You can set an offer as “Featured” and it will appear on your publisher’s dashboard in the Featured Offers section. This is made to attract your publisher’s attention to hot or top performing offers.

There are three ways to feature an offer: while creating an offer, on the offers overview page and while editing the offer.

Custom Reports

Reports is one of the features all our customers use as it is one of the main features you need to see your campaign performance. But not everyone knows you can create custom reports to suit your needs even better.

Customize/adjust your reports

You can switch and change the displayed KPIs as well as columns at any time by simply clicking on the different tabs (publisher, advertiser, offer, country and affpubid). To adjust the columns, simply go into “Customize columns” and select the ones you want to have displayed.

All selected filters will be displayed now and can be sorted in ascending or descending order.

The second part consists of different event types represented in graphs. This includes event types such as clicks, blocked clicks, installs etc. The graph gives you a performance report comparing the events to important metrics.

By clicking on “Customize KPIs” you can add or remove displayed KPI’s according to your specific needs.

Save as New

Tired of re-setting your report settings over and over again? You can simply save them once and not worry about doing it again later. Setting up specific pre-set reports for your needs can be easily saved/created by clicking on “Save as new”.

You can give this custom report a name and access it at any time. Saved reports can be found under the “Reports” tab.

API Integrations

If you’ve been in the affiliate marketing business for a while, you will know that it is no longer imaginable to work efficiently without API integrations. All parties involved in the process make use of the APIs. To find out more about it, read our article on the APIs here.

vene dash offers API integrations for both Advertisers and Publishers.
