As you are setting up the KPI’s of your affiliate marketing campaign, it is important to set up the goals & event tracking for your performance marketing campaign to get a clear picture as to the various touchpoints where the customer attributes a certain event which can lead to a possible sale or a possible customer acquisition. This in turn helps you set up the campaign’s payout structure and overall regulations to help you monitor the performance of every partner or any other traffic generating source.
