Using smart-links on your blog or website
You can use the smart-link as a normal link anywhere on your site to send traffic to KINFO and at the same time tag users with you as a referrer which lets you earn a commission.
Through social media
If you post your smart-link on social media, anyone who clicks the links will be tagged with you as a referrer and lets you earn a commission.
How KINFO tracks attribution
The provided smart-link has some advanced featured built into it which will first identify the user’s device and send the user through the most appropriate onboarding flow and add the necessary tracking parameters.
Cross channel tracking
When a user clicks a smart-link on a desktop computer, tracking parameters will be added through the browser. If the user clicks the link on a mobile device they will be presented with an invitation to install the KINFO app. All necessary tracking parameters will be kept through the app install process and tag the user with you as a referrer when they sign up through the mobile app.
This is called deferred deep linking and KINFO relies on technology from branch.io to ensure tracking data is available through the whole journey across channels.
Last link attribution
In the event a user has clicked on a smart-link one site and later clicks on a smart-link on another site, last attribution counts.
No tag expiration
A user who clicks a smart link is tagged forever to the referrer. This means that the affiliate will be able to earn commission on all future sales if KINFO adds more paid services.
Can I participate in both the referral and the affiliate program?
Unfortunately not, by default, anyone who joins KINFO can use the referral program to earn swag by promoting KINFO to friends. Once you join the affiliate program you will no longer participate in the referral program.
