Affiliate Link Management System

Steve Wagner

System Requirements

The client required a bespoke management system within which they could manage affiliate links from various affiliate sites to the corresponding landing pages on the destination websites.

The system would need to be able to generate unique URLs which would be provided to the affiliates. The system would also need to track traffic through the system and provide reporting based on the data including traffic volumes and estimated earnings per click on affiliate-by-affiliate and supplier-by-supplier basis.

Solution Provided

A SQL Server database was used to store and manage the link information and also capture the traffic data. An administration area was developed which allowed the administration user to to perform the following functions:

  • add affiliates, modify affiliates and delete affiliates
  • add networks, modify networks and delete networks
  • add affiliate links, modify affiliate links and delete affiliate links
  • view statistics and run reports

An affiliate redirect page was also developed which performed the front-end redirect for the website user to the destination URL whilst capturing tracking and reporting data at the same time.

Skills Used

  • SQL Server
  • ASP.Net
  • VB.Net
  • Javascript
