What is ClickMagick? Insert Source Code Into ClickMagick Popup
ClickMagick is well-known to those who are familiar with online marketing. We have given a brief introduction. For the online marketing novices amongst you, the passage probably did little to illustrate the capabilities of ClickMagick.
In a nutshell, ClickMagick is a platform that collates, organizes, and tracks links on your website so that you can adequately monitor the performance of each different call-to-action or CTA that you may have on your website.
This is most commonly used in affiliate marketing. This is where a user or group of users promotes brands online. They post about the product online, and provide links to purchase. If a user is convinced and buys through what people in the industry call an “affiliate link,” then the original user who wrote the article gets a commission on sales generated.
It’s a relatively simple setup that harkens back to how businesses were advertised before. Still, now users are more incentivized to generate positive word-of-mouth regarding products online. The concept has since developed some complexity. Multiple pieces of content can be shared on different websites or platforms. It can be hard to see what content is generating the most returns for you and your brand in these cases.
ClickMagick helps here by collating all these links and tracking the different sources of traffic drawn to convert. More than that, ClickMagick also has a suite of advanced features to help you monitor the performance and even improve the capabilities of your links moving forward.
Who started it?
Patrick Kelly founded ClickMagick in 2014. He’s been working for 26 years now as a digital marketer. He has generated millions in dollars of revenue for clients and affiliate marketers.
ClickMagick has allowed him to condense his ability track down consumer paths and converts into a platform he can share. Mr. Kelly promises to continually update the platform with new features. For the past seven years, he has done this every month.
So ClickMagick has some bold claims and is backed by some serious talent. Let’s find out what it can do for online marketers.
What Can ClickMagick Do For My Business?
ClickMagick’s functionality fits a wide range of uses for its customers. Though ClickMagick was done with Affiliate Marketing in mind, many different businesses can benefit from assessing your website’s quality of traffic. This applies to bloggers looking to increase traffic to their websites, as well as marketing agencies who are trying to track down leads and converts more effectively, and online businesses that exchange traffic.
At the core of it, though, ClickMagick ensures that your links and the users clicking on them do not go to waste. ClickMagick performs several critical functions to improve your online marketing strategies.
We can’t start discussing the features of ClickMagick without discussing one of the critical aspects that make it so valuable: Traffic Tracking. You can do this by using their tracking ID system. This allows you to create unique hyperlinks to track where and how they were used.
This is particularly useful if your website has multiple call-to action items or you have different content across different domains. You can use the same URL affiliate but attach custom IDs to know which traffic source contributes to which conversions. Not only does this help you indicate strengths and weaknesses within your overall content strategy, but it can also aid in adequately identifying consumer flows in regards to how they use your links.
ClickMagick includes an integrated authenticity and quality check to show how authentic the traffic to your URL. This is especially important for business owners and marketing affiliates looking to improve the traffic to a website but is experiencing a ton of bot traffic. Bot traffic can be frustrating for online entrepreneurs. Bot traffic can inflate your traffic metrics and give you a false perception of performance. ClickMagick allows you to ensure that your ads are getting real traffic.
Create Customer Lead and Conversion Values
One aspect of online marketing that is often overlooked but is genuinely essential to how a marketing strategy operates is the assignment of conversion values. Once you get the ball rolling and have a few links set up, you’re probably going to be experimenting with consumer funnels and figuring out ways to make the most out of each step of their journey.
Some marketers assign values to each step to properly ascertain the value that each funnel in the customer journey is worth. ClickMagick echoed this thought and created a feature in its platform that allows users assign numerical values to each lead/conversion to help them better understand their profitability and overall utility.
This aspect of ClickMagick is fascinating. This is due to the old problem of tracking affiliate conversions on websites that you don’t own. You might have your URL link point the user to the website, but you later discover that you don’t have the code. To track the conversion, you can’t enter a suitable pixels.
ClickMagick has found a way to bypass the tracking pixel by inserting an invisible tracker into the consumer funnel. ClickMagick inserts a low data blank HTML between the user’s browser and the website to track the user’s click. This is a simple tracking pixel solution that can be quite straightforward if you look at it.
ClickMagick provides the magic that completes the customer journey.
ClickMagick has a unique aspect that will make marketers swoon with delight or furrow their eyebrows at the thought of such a thing happening often.
A call-to action is a button or feature that calls attention to the user and indicates the desired action (hence, the “call”) aspect of a website. Unfortunately, some websites are a bit dull on the marketing side, so ClickMagick helps spice things up by adding a feature to personally add a customer call-to-action on top of the web page your link directs to. This could be in the form a countdown or a banner for a limited time, as well as other marketing signals that you might see on high-traffic sites.
Sometimes your user needs a little nudge for conversion, so having a big banner indicating the good of the deal might do the trick.
ClickMagick is big in ad tracking. It ensures that you are not only following the customer journey. Still, you’re avoiding any inefficiencies along the way. Often affiliate links go dead for some reasons– server issues, website migration, or even maintenance– and yet these things can spell doom for you and your business.
ClickMagick offers an automated feature that will notify the user if any links in their content are unavailable. This can help you manage your funds and avoid any paid traffic ending up on dead websites. It is not a good idea to spend hundreds of dollars on a link that suddenly is no longer available.
Create Split Tests
Starting a new marketing strategy is never a simple process. It will require different iterations of content just to get the right mix in. Sometimes these differences can be as minuscule as the placement of a banner or changing a header. Still, it can all help in influencing your visitors to go further down the user funnel.
ClickMagick had this in mind when they developed their platform to manage split tests natively using just a single URL. This is a great way to optimize your webpage for content delivery and conversion. Insert Source Code Into ClickMagick Popup
You can even choose how to balance the traffic so you can quickly see how different-sized audiences react to changes on web pages. Of course, these are all still tracked and verified through ClickMagick’s service.

Now with any service comes its cost, and ClickMagick is certainly not unique in that regard. ClickMagick offers three plans for potential users: the Starter plan, Standard plan, and Pro plan. Insert Source Code Into ClickMagick Popup

How Are Ads Tracked?
Ads are mainly tracked through affiliate URLs and advertising pixels. While we discussed URL tracking plenty, the concept of a pixel still evades many marketers out there.
A pixel is simply a line of code that creates a small graphic (1×1 pixels) that you place on a landing webpage to track the user’s actions. A pixel can be used to track where the user is from as well as any other actions they may have done on the site. This pixel has been an integral part of online marketing for quite some time. Its capabilities are consistently expanding with every development of internet services.

This will cancel your account, effectively removing access to the platform after the expiration of your subscription period. Be warned, though, that once this period passes, all of your data will be automatically deleted. Use the Data Exporter tool from the Tools menu to export your data securely.
