Multi Level Marketing
Multi-level Marketing, also known as MLM or network marketing, is a marketing strategy that allows affiliates to build a network of other affiliates.
This network structure enables affiliates to earn not only from their own sales but also from the sales generated by their sub-affiliates.
By enabling MLM in your account, you open up opportunities to expand your affiliate network and increase your earnings potential.
Within our Tracknow Multi-level Marketing system, you can establish parent/child relationships between affiliates.
The MLM setup on our platform supports two levels, meaning that you can have a parent affiliate (level 1) and their sub-affiliates (level 2).
Single Campaign Mode
When activating the Single Campaign Mode, affiliates will only see the designated campaign, eliminating exposure to other campaigns. This focused approach helps them concentrate on the required campaign
Here you can customize your brand presence by uploading your brand logo and setting up a custom domain.
Brand Logo – By adding your logo, you create a consistent visual representation of your brand throughout the platform. It helps affiliates and users recognize your program and builds trust and recognition. To add your logo click on the ‘Upload‘ button.
SSL Custom Domain – To establish a professional and secure online presence, you can set up an SSL Custom Domain for your affiliate platform. This allows you to use a unique domain name that reflects your brand and enhances your credibility.
Customizing the Domain
- Log in to your hosting account and find the DNS management page.
- Look for sections like ‘DNS Management’ or ‘Name Server Management’ to find CNAME records.
- If you can’t find the CNAME management options, you might need to enable advanced settings.
- If you’re unable to locate these options, please reach out to your domain host directly for assistance.
- Create a CNAME record that points to whitelabel.tracknow.io.
- This record ensures that your domain is linked correctly to the TrackNow platform.
- Wait for the DNS update to take effect. It might take some time.
- Once the DNS update is completed, you will see a “CNAME” record checkmark ✔ next to the name field.
- This confirms that the CNAME record has been successfully set up.
By following these steps, you will be able to configure the necessary CNAME records to connect your domain with the TrackNow platform.
