(R) refers to a Recurring Order or Re-Order. If you see this in your control panel, it means that order came from a customer who placed an order previously. It can also be displayed as an order which has recurred, if it is a monthly subscription order.
Affiliate MarketingAffiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a system of revenue sharing between a merchant (website) and an advertiser (the affiliate). This system allows the merchant to recruit or signup affiliates/advertisers to advertise their products and/or services in return for a commission on sales sold by that affiliate. Normally, this type of marketing works by having the merchant website create an affiliate program that affiliates can join. Upon joining, the affiliate is given a unique website URL to promote that merchant's products and/or services. By promoting this link, any referral that clicks on this unique link are tracked. When the referring customer buys from the merchant, the affiliate member is given a commission for that sale. Merchants can pay affiliates in many different ways. These include pay-per-sale, pay-per-lead, or pay-per-click. This depends entirely on the merchant website and how they want to reward their affiliate members.
The Program Manager gets alerted daily in case an affiliate’s traffic drops under the preset threshold. Never lose an affiliate again, always stay on top of them with ClickInc Alerts.
A true revolution in features for affiliate programs is our unique ability to increase your search engine ranking (Google) based on links from affiliates. In any of our competitors' programs, affiliates will link to you using a unique ID (affiliate will link using http://www.merchant.com/product?affid=XXXX). Google ranks pages using an algorithm that checks how many links are pointing to a web page. Web pages that have more links will always rank higher (Google reckons page must be important since many people link to it). The problem is that http://www.merchant.com/product (page that you want to achieve high rankings) and http://www.merchant.com/product?affid=XXXX are actually different pages from a Search Engine point of view and as such, even if you have many affiliates, they all seem to link to a different page (since XXXX is a unique number), so affiliate links won’t establish http://www.merchant.com/product as a page with many links to it. This is where ClickInc.com changes everything Every time a web page gets a visitor, the referral URL (previous website) is included in the HTTP request. What we did is to have affiliates register their URL with our affiliate software and for every visitor we check if the referral URL matches an affiliate. Think about the referral URL as being used as a unique ID. Since we have a unique ID in the referral URL, affiliates can send traffic by linking directly to http://www.merchant.com/product; hence we called it TruLink. Finally, Google looks at who links to you, so a website that is all about gardening will have a bigger weight if they send a link to someone that sells gardening books (as opposed to a link from a free forum for example). Of course, affiliates are usually targeted to your specific market/products, and as such they carry a lot of weight. Get a couple of them, and you should achieve first page ranking for almost any keyword. This software is so effective that even words that are very crowded (such as online gambling) will achieve first page ranking in Google with enough TruLink affiliates. By using ClickInc.com you will achieve a very comprehensive marketing strategy, blending SEO and affiliate program in one platform.
